Xiaomi launched a 27″ 1440p 165 Hz monitor for just ~RM1328
Xiaomi has been adding a steady stream of monitors to its lineup, but the latest one might be the most interesting one. At least, for us gamers. The new Xiaomi Mi Display 27″ 165 Hz Edition offers high refresh rate, impressive color response and also a relatively high 1440p resolution, all for just 2199 yuan (~RM1328).
The monitor boasts of a true 8-bit IPS panel that is capable of display 95% of the DCI-P3 gamut. There’s also DisplayHDR 400 support, for more vibrant visuals in games and movies. The Mi Display claims a maximum brightness of 400 nits, which is quite impressive for a monitor in this price range. On top of that, Xiaomi tuned the color accuracy to achieve Delta E <2, so it might be a pretty good fit for content creators too.
Now, on to the gamer-oriented feature set. The Mi Display 27″ 165 Hz Edition offers the 165 Hz refresh rate in its name, along with 1ms Intelligent Motion Blur Control and a 4ms GtG response time. Xiaomi baked in Adaptive Sync, which means it will support AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible technologies for that sweet tear-free gaming experience. The bezels are also quite thin on the monitor, allowing for some nice seamless multi-monitor setups.
In addition to the sweet display panel, the Mi Display 27″ 165 Hz Edition will also offer two USB 3.0 ports. It will support DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 inputs.
