Unleash your speed. Claim your power.

Next-level speed: Wait for no one. Experience everything with a lightning-fast 240Hz refresh rate with Fast IPS Technology.

Blur, terminated: With a true 1ms GTG response time, the pixels themselves change color almost instantaneously to ensure smooth gameplay and eliminate motion blur.

Clarity never stops: With NVIDIA® G-SYNC® ULTIMATE certification, this monitor delivers smooth and tear-free action, and brilliant HDR renderings with HDR capable games.* Low latency ensures it takes less time to process changes on screen, so images are quickly and clearly displayed and gameplay feels more responsive.

*In order to get the full NVIDIA® G-SYNC® ULTIMATE experience, users must ensure that the monitor is directly connected to the HDMI or DisplayPort on their PC.

The color is in the details

Go deeper: VESA DisplayHDR™ 600 provides real-time contrast ratios with localized dimming that yields impressive highlights and deep blacks, which also supports a wider color gamut. Plus, QHD resolution allows you to see up to 77% more on-screen game content in incredible detail compared to Full HD resolution.

The full array: With new IPS Nano Color technology, you experience colors with 98% DCI-P3 color coverage, which is a professional color gamut that has greater range than sRGB. With high color accuracy, colors are more real, detailed and consistent across all angles so there is no washout, and you get the same picture quality from any angle.
Designed for dominance


*Disclaimer: First image is for illustration purposes only. The height adjustable stand connects with the monitor via a non-removable VESA plate, which is not shown in the image.
