ASRock Challenger CL25FF 100Hz gaming monitor with FreeSync

Asus has recently unveiled its budget office monitor, the VA27DQF, offering a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at a refreshing 100 Hz. Now, ASRock is joining the fray with its new display, the CL25FF, which, unlike Asus, is primarily marketed as a gaming monitor featuring a 100 Hz refresh rate.

This latest addition to ASRock’s Challenger series boasts an IPS panel, aligning with the aforementioned resolution and refresh rate. Promising 99 percent sRGB color coverage, a typical brightness of 300 cd/m², 8-bit color depth, a rapid 4 ms response time (gray to gray), and an impressive contrast ratio of 1300:1.

However, the CL25FF’s connectivity options are rather limited, featuring only HDMI 1.4 and VGA ports. Similarly, its ergonomic features are basic, offering tilt adjustment, VESA mounting compatibility (100 x 100 mm), blue light filtering, and flicker-free backlighting.

One notable feature is the implementation of FreeSync functionality for tear-free gaming experiences. It remains unclear whether this includes LFC (“Low Frame Rate Compensation”), a detail ASRock has not explicitly clarified. We speculate on the absence of LFC, as ASRock would likely emphasize such a premium feature. In terms of power consumption, the new ASRock Challenger monitor operates at 18 watts and weighs 2.96 kg without the stand.

Price and availability

The ASRock Challenger CL25FF, marketed as a gaming monitor with a 100 Hz refresh rate, is available for purchase on at a bundled price of $149.30, inclusive of the Docztorm Dock.
