A QD-OLED panel, most likely of the latest generation with significantly improved text display, features a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (WQHD) and a 360Hz refresh rate in this case.

To maintain nearly 360 fps in graphically demanding games like Cyberpunk 2077, players may need to enable upsampling technologies like DLSS or significantly lower the graphics settings, even on high-end gaming setups.

The 27-inch best 360Hz monitor for gaming also comes with a 0.03 response time (gray to gray), 10-bit color depth, 99 percent DCI-P3, a contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1 and a brightness of 250 cd/m² (SDR, 100 percent APL ) or 1000 cd/m² ( HDR, 3 percent APL).

Unsightly image tearing is eliminated via FreeSync Premium Pro. There is also a tactical switch on board, which, like the FO32U2, presumably activates a night vision mode at the push of a button or switches the image to 24 inches with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), which should immediately ensure significantly higher frame rates.

Regarding connectivity, the monitor features two HDMI 2.1 inputs and, moreover, a DisplayPort 1.4. Additionally, there is a USB 3.0 hub, along with a microphone input and a headphone output. Furthermore, it supports USB-C with DisplayPort alternate mode and offers an 18-watt Power Delivery (PD) option.

As for ergonomics, the screen can be tilted, rotated, and adjusted in height for optimal viewing comfort. Moreover, it can be pivoted or securely mounted on a wall or a swivel arm using a VESA mount (100 x 100 mm), providing flexibility for various setups.
