All of these monitors also feature support for AMD FreeSync Premium, which ensures that when gaming, there won't be any screen tearing or screen stuttering. This technology accomplishes this by syncing the monitor's refresh rate to the frames that are being produced by the GPU. AMD FreeSync Premium features a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, decreased overall blur, and even sharing of the image to be more life-like.

The design of all four monitors is the same featuring very slim bezels and light red accents on the bottom of the monitor in addition to a red accent to where the legs for the stand attaches to the monitor itself.


There are two different series, which are the "AE" models and the "U" models, the difference between the two series is the fact that the "U" series has a few extra features. These features include four USB 3.2 ports and a Monitor stand that offers height adjustment while the "AE" models lack the USB ports and the height adjustment on the stand, but provide the same technical specifications as the higher-end model.

All four of these monitors are set to be available in September 2020, with the C24G2AE and C27G2AE being priced at £169, £229, respectively. At the same time, the C24G2U and C27G2U will be priced £189 and £249, respectively.
