BenQ EX3203R 32-inch FreeSync 2 Curved HDR monitor releases this week

BenQ has confirmed that their new EX3203R FreeSync 2 display will release on August 7th, offering a large display size of 32-inches and a resolution of 1440p, delivering a great balance between size and resolution while giving a gamer-oriented 144Hz maximum refresh rate.

As a FreeSync 2 monitor, the EX3203R offers support for HDR and FreeSync with Low Framerate Compensation, giving it an effective variable refresh rate window of 30-144Hz. HDR-wise, the EX3203R has a VA display panel with a peak brightness of 400 cd/m^2 while offering 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space. BenQ's specifications make no specific mention of Local Dimming, giving this display limited HDR support, though the maximum brightness is over 33% higher than the 300 cd/m^2 offers by most non-HDR screens. 

While the display is certified as a DisplayHDR 400 monitor, AMD has confirmed that their FreeSync 2 specification has a "higher bar" for colour gamut, maximum screen brightness and contrast ratios, with many of FreeSync 2's HDR requirements being similar DisplayHDR 600. AMD's FreeSync 2 specifications also set strict limits on display latencies and other factors that are not covered by DisplayHDR.   

BenQ's EX3203R will support VESA compatible mounting system using a "VESA wall mount transfer kit‎", with the display's stock mounts offering tilt and height adjustment functions. The display itself has a 1800mm radius curvature, with the screen being a VR-type panel. Input-wise this monitor has a single Displayport 1.2 port, dual HDMI 1.4 inputs, a single USB 3.0 input and dual USB 3.0 outputs. The EX3203R supports USB Type-C as a display input, which will be a useful feature for Mac users.

The BenQ EX3203R offers a large 31.5-inch screen size, a resolution of 1440p and a 144Hz refresh rate with support for FreeSync 2 with Low Framerate Compensation, making this an ideal gaming panel. The only downside to this display is its low peak brightness levels and limited HDR support. 

BenQ's EX3203R will release on August 7th for $699.99.

The Zealot
If it doesn't follow the FreeSync 2 HDR certification in full, then I'm not buying. It's as simple as that. I am not interested in monitors that are already obsolete. Stop dithering and give customers a product they actually feel happy to have.Quote
