This Gaming Monitor Boosts Your Wi-Fi Signal – Geek Review

Cable Internet offers the fastest and most reliable connection for PC gamers. But some gamers are stuck with Wi-Fi. That’s why ASRock’s PG34WQ15R3A monitor has a built-in 7dBi Wi-Fi antenna: it allows you to bypass your Wi-Fi card’s crappy antenna for a faster and more stable connection.

Most Wi-Fi cards include a small antenna, usually with a gain ratio of 2 or 3dBi. Because these antennas are low gain and are located so close to the PC chassis, they do not offer the best signal strength. External Wi-Fi antennas provide a better experience and can be connected to your existing Wi-Fi card using an SMA cable (you can unscrew the antennas from your Wi-Fi card to reveal the SMA connectors).

ASRock’s PG34WQ15R3A gaming monitor has a high-gain 7dBi Wi-Fi antenna built into its stand. According to ASRock, this system reduces lag and improves the Wi-Fi speed of your PC. HKEPC ran an independent test of the monitor (with an Intel AX210 graphics card) and found that it increases download speeds by 40%, while providing a significant reduction in ping and jitter.

Of course, we cannot promise this kind of improvement for all users. I should also point out that HKEPC placed your PC low a desk during these tests. If you’re using the built-in antennas of a Wi-Fi card, you really should put your PC on top of a desk – Wi-Fi has trouble moving through solid objects.

Along with its built-in antenna, the ASRock PG34WQ15R3A sports a 34-inch QHD curved display with a 165Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. It also uses AMD FreeSync Premium and Flicker Free technology to improve image quality and smoothness, and is compatible with ASRock’s Polychrome Sync RGB system.

You can buy the ASRock PG34WQ15R3A today at NewEgg. It costs $460 and ships immediately.
