BenQ ZOWIE XL2540 monitor targeted at eSports
The latest monitor from BenQ ZOWIE is the ZOWIE XL2540 monitor, a 24.5″ TN monitor with an insane 240Hz refresh rate. ZOWIE has always been dedicated to developing e-Sports equipment to allow gamers to perform at their peak performance levels, and the latest monitor offers a game-changing smoothness.
To make full use of the 240Hz refresh rate, BenQ recommends the latest video cards such as a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series cards, AMD Radeon RX 480 or higher. Your system will need to generate over 240 frames per second to take advantage of the high refresh rates the BenQ ZOWIE XL2540 is capable of, as it lacks FreeSync or G SYNC support.
The ZOWIE XL2540 also comes with a Shield and Height Adjustable Stand that allows gamers to feel comfortable during any competition, from adjustable angle to preferred height.
Besides its physical aesthetics, the e-Sports monitor daunts some hidden features such as the Black eQualizer that increases the visibility in dark scenes without overexposing the bright areas; as well as, 20 levels of Color Vibrance settings – furnishing users with specific viewing requirements and preferences for all types of gameplay.
The S Switch is designed to shift between saved modes and different inputs seamlessly. Whether users are watching, reading, surfing, gaming or connecting with multiple monitors, switching between the presets and different monitors, or navigating among menus is as simple as 1-2- 3.
The BenQ ZOWIE XL2540 professional e-Sports monitor will be available at selected retail outlets starting from mid-March 2017, priced at RM2,399.
Pokdepinion: I believe it is quite difficult to make full use of a 240Hz refresh rate unless you have some kind of adaptive sync, as very few graphics cards can hit 240 fps, even in e-Sport titles.
