Benq today announced that its 27-inch RL2755HM "blazing fast professional gaming monitor" is now shipping, meaning you should be able to find it online, if not now then soon. Selected as the official console gaming monitor of both Major League Gaming (MLG) and UMG, they hype machine is in overdrive on this one. We haven't played with this particular model ourselves just yet, though we have glanced the spec sheet.
Life is about choices, isn't it? Like whether to view the posted speed limit as a rule of law or a recommendation, and whether to call the next night like you promised you would. Some are less intense and not as prone to heavy consequences, like choosing whether or not to run your monitor in G-Sync mode. That is, when you're given the choice. BenQ claims its XL2420G is the market's first hybrid monitor to give gamers a choice between running G-Sync or Classic modes, and it's now shipping in the U.S.

It's the year 2500 and, despite several near misses with asteroids and potentially apocalyptic plagues, mankind has survived. So have PCs, though analysts are still predicting their demise. In a museum situated downtown, a group of kids stare in wonder at 2000-era electronics. They giggle at how big everything is, particularly mini ITX motherboards, which they're told used to power what previous generations considered small form factor machines. Now travel back in time to 2014 and thumb your nose at the little brats who laughed at today's technology. The joke is on them, because we lied about near misses -- life on Earth ends after an asteroid the size of Texas barrels into our planet in the year 2317, you can mark your calendars. But we digress. That mini ITX board on display had it not been for that asteroid?
