ViewSonic to Release a UHD mini LED Gaming Monitor with Support for DisplayHDR1000 and144Hz Refresh Rate

It seems CES 2021 is replete with companies showcasing their high refresh gaming monitors. Yesterday we reported that LG might announce its first HDMI 2.1 enabled gaming monitor during its CES presentation. Now, according to a report from a German tech site, Winfuture ViewSonic will also be presenting a 32-inch gaming monitor during its time on the stage.

The most important aspect of the gaming monitor is that it will be one of the first gaming monitors to use mini LED displays. The ViewSonic Elite XG321UG offers a 32-inch mini LED display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) and a refresh rate up to 144Hz. The IPS technology on top of the mini LED display allows ViewSonic to boast its image quality even at odd angles.

The mini LED use enables 1152 local dimming zones, which results in high contrast though the exact contrast ratio has not been announced yet. It can achieve a maximum brightness of 1400nits, which could mean that it could receive the improved VESA DisplayHDR 1400 though the company only announced support for DisplayHDR 1000. On top of adding G-sync support, ViewSonic has further optimized the display to reduce latency, making it a perfect monitor for competitive players.

Other specifications include 99% adobe color space coverage, support for HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort, a USB port, and an Audio-out port.

Other manufacturers have also unveiled or announced their mini LED gaming monitors, but the ViewSonic Elite may be the first monitor to be released in the market. It is scheduled to be sold during summer.
