Here is an announcement that may appeal to nomadic players. ViewSonic has just introduced its new VX1755 monitor, a 17.3-inch portable gaming screen which promises to accompany the players in their slightest movements. The manufacturer based in Walnut, California, United States, even wants to open “a new era in the world of gaming” with its new screen.
The VX17755 is definitely targeting gamers with its 17-inch IPS panel displaying in 1080p ; and a refresh rate of 144Hz. ViewSonic mentions a response time of 4 ms and specifies that its screen supports the technology AMD FreeSync Premium. On the other hand, it will be necessary to be satisfied with a 250 cd/m2 brightness which risks showing its limits outdoors. However, this screen can accompany mobile, PC or console players by slipping into a bag. ViewSonic highlights the finesse of its new screen, with a total thickness of 17 mm and its weight of less than a kilo. The VX1755 should fit in most travel bags or carry-on bags.

In addition to this integrated crutch, there are two front speakers and a mini socket 3.5mm jack. The connection includes one mini-HDMI port and two USB-C ports with bi-directional power.
