There are some fascinating bulletins popping out of Gamescom, one among which pertains to HP’s Omen X 27, a mannequin new gaming monitor that contains a 27-inch TN panel with a wicked-fast 240Hz refresh price.
TN (twisted nematic) panels will not be terribly thrilling now that IPS (in-plane switching) and VA (vertical alignment) reveals are far more commonplace, each of which normally present bigger coloration replica and viewing angles. Apparently, nonetheless, HP is claiming a great 90 p.c security of the DCI-P3 coloration gamut, a metric that MSI believes is the “new customary.”
Going with a TN current was the one reply to amass a 240Hz refresh price—there mustn’t any IPS or VA panels that scale that prime, in any case not nonetheless. You may need thought-about attempting a graphics card that may keep, too, nonetheless for esports and fewer demanding video video video games, the ultra-fast refresh price can come into play.
This is a rundown of the pertinent specs:
- Measurement—27 inches
- Decision—2560×1440 (1440p, QHD)
- Bit depth—true 8-bit
- Refresh price—240Hz
- Response time—3ms (1ms w/ overdrive)
- Brightness—400 nits w/ HDR (300 nits typical)
- Distinction ratio—10,000,000:1 (dynamic), 1,000:1 (typical)

That is furthermore a FreeSync 2 HDR current, although at merely 400 nits, I might not anticipate an entire lot of pop from HDR visuals. Nonetheless, it is technically there.
The selection and refresh price combo is fascinating on a 27-inch monitor, as is the pliability to primarily overclock the inventory 3ms response time to 1ms. Many high-speed screens on this class stick with 1080p.
For connectivity, the Omen X 27 touts HDMI 2.zero and DisplayPort 1.four ports (one every). It furthermore provides up a pair of USB 3.zero ports and a 3.5mm audio jack. It does not appear to be there are built-in audio system, which is not any huge deal so far as I am involved.
