BenQ has launched a new gaming monitor, and while it does share some newer features from the manufacturer that we've already seen on previous models, it is bigger, and we all know that bigger is better!
The monitor, which will carry the model name XL2720Z, is a 27-inch 'professional gaming monitor.' It has a number of features to make BenQ give it this name, including its GROM (Gaming Refresh Optimization Management), flicker-free technology, as well as low blue light tech and motion blur reduction technology. Along with the monitor BenQ ships its S Switch, which is a sort of control interface that can be clipped onto the side of the screen's base and used to access profiles on-the-fly.
"The new XL2720Z and the industry-leading features that it comes with is a true and proud manifesto of our vision of professional gaming at its best and of our actions taken to realize that vision," said Peter Chen, General Manager of BenQ's Technology Product Center. "Motion Blur Reduction may yet to be [sic] a new concept to the
gaming world, but no doubt it is the best-to-date perfection of LCD displays in gaming action. Gamers will find the clear difference we aim to deliver in game play clarity and fluidity once they get their hands on the XL2720Z."
The monitor has a TN panel with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, and has adjustable refresh rates from 100 Hz to 144 Hz. Other specifications include a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 300 cd/m² brightness, and a 72 percent color gamut. Due to the 144 Hz refresh rate, the screen also has a gray-to-gray response time of just 1 ms.
Connectivity is handled by HDMI, DVI, VGA, and warmly welcomed, DisplayPort 1.2. Other connectivity includes a USB hub and an audio jack.
