ViewSonic has updated its VX range with five additional gaming monitors. The VX18 series ranges from 27- to 32-inches and 1080p to 2K, with some curved options thrown in for good measure. All five monitors have ViewSonic SuperClear VA panels that support up to 165 Hz and 1 ms response times (MPRT), along with ViewMode presets that optimise screen performance for various uses, including gaming.

Additionally, ViewSonic has included 2 W stereo speakers, blue light filters and Flicker-Free technology to protect people's eyes during prolonged sessions. All panels support ViewSonic's Eco mode too, and support AMD Adaptive Sync. According to ViewSonic, the VX18 series covers 72% of the NTSC colour space and 102% of sRGB while achieving a 4,000:1 contrast ratio.

Moreover, all monitors have a single DisplayPort 1.2 connection and two HDMI 1.4 ports, or HDMI 2.0 in the case of the VX2718-2KPC-MHD. The monitors will be available from specialist retailers and ViewSonic via a sales enquiry. ViewSonic is yet to confirm which retailers will carry the VX18 series, though. We have included an overview of the VX18 series below.
