24-inch gaming monitor with 540Hz refresh rate at BenQ

BenQ has introduced its first gaming monitor that achieves a refresh rate of 540 Hz with the Zowie XL2586X. To achieve this speed, the manufacturer has opted for a fast TN panel, with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (16:9). There will also be a 240Hz model for the slightly more price-conscious consumer.

Many concrete specifications are not discussed, although it is clear that the XL2586X is aimed at competitive gamers. For example, BenQ indicates that thanks to Fast TN, players can recover faster from flashbangs in shooters and can therefore see enemies more quickly. The built-in DyAc 2 technology uses two backlights, which should reduce motion blur and provide more accurate images.

The manufacturer has also paid a lot of attention to ease of use. By using high-quality bearings, users should be able to quickly and smoothly adjust the height of the screen (up to 155 millimeters). In terms of ergonomics, tilting (-5° ~ 35°) and swiveling (45°) are provided. The connectivity consists of three times HDMI 2.1, display port 1.4 and a headphone jack.

The Zowie XL2546X (240 Hz) is expected in January, with a suggested retail price of 500 US dollars (553 euros including VAT). No release date or price has been announced for the XL2586X for the time being. The manufacturer’s website briefly stated 600 dollars (663 euros), probably an error. For a display with similar specifications (Asus RoG Swift PG248QP) you currently pay at least 1,050 euros.
