iiyama G-Master GB2790QSU 240Hz gaming monitor has been unveiled. The iiyama GB2790QSU measures 27 inches diagonally and has an IPS panel with WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) that can accelerate to a maximum refresh rate of 240 Hz.
To consistently achieve a correspondingly high frame rate, not only a powerful hardware foundation should be required. Depending on the game, there is certainly no way around reducing the graphic details. The best 27 inch gaming monitor eradicates tearing with the help of FreeSync Premium and alternatively offers a mode against motion blur.
Other features of the 240 Hz monitor are a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m² brightness, 8-bit color depth, and typical power consumption of 33 watts. Two integrated 2-watt speakers can be used as sound generators if desired, but they shouldn’t be good for more than system sounds. A black stabilizer can be controlled via the OSD to brighten up dark areas in games.
The interface selection includes DisplayPort 1.4 (WQHD at max. 240 Hz), HDMI 2.0 (WQHD at max. 144 Hz ), a USB 3.0 hub, and a headphone jack. Tilt, height adjustment, pivot, VESA mount (100 x 100 mm), blue light filtering, and flicker-free backlight are available as ergonomic features.

The iiyama G-Master GB2790QSU-B1 240Hz gaming monitor costs £497.52, and it can be purchased on the Amazon.co.uk website.
