There are some fascinating bulletins coming out of Gamescom, one amongst which pertains to HP’s Omen X 27, a model new gaming monitor that accommodates a 27-inch TN panel with a wicked-fast 240Hz refresh value.
TN (twisted nematic) panels won’t be terribly thrilling now that IPS (in-plane switching) and VA (vertical alignment) reveals are way more commonplace, every of which usually current larger coloration duplicate and viewing angles. Apparently, nonetheless, HP is claiming a fantastic 90 p.c safety of the DCI-P3 coloration gamut, a metric that MSI believes is the “new customary.”
Going with a TN present was the one reply to amass a 240Hz refresh value—there mustn’t any IPS or VA panels that scale that prime, in any case not nonetheless. You could want thought-about making an attempt a graphics card which will hold, too, nonetheless for esports and fewer demanding video video video video games, the ultra-fast refresh value can come into play.
This can be a rundown of the pertinent specs:
- Measurement—27 inches
- Determination—2560×1440 (1440p, QHD)
- Bit depth—true 8-bit
- Refresh value—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)
- Viewing angles—170/160 ranges horizontal/vertical
That’s moreover a FreeSync 2 HDR present, though at merely 400 nits, I may not anticipate a complete lot of pop from HDR visuals. Nonetheless, it’s technically there.
The choice and refresh value combo is fascinating on a 27-inch monitor, as is the pliability to primarily overclock the stock 3ms response time to 1ms. Many high-speed screens on this class keep on with 1080p.
For connectivity, the Omen X 27 touts HDMI 2.zero and DisplayPort 1.4 ports (one each). It moreover supplies up a pair of USB 3.zero ports and a 3.5mm audio jack. It doesn’t seem like there are built-in audio system, which isn’t any large deal as far as I’m concerned.
