Eve's crowd-designed Spectrum displays will be the first to deliver HDMI 2.1 to the monitor market

The monitor market is about to experience an upheaval, at least on the high-end. HDMI 2.1 is coming, and it is coming to next-generation graphics cards and next-generation consoles alike. This information was first picked up by Eurogamer's Digital Foundry writer Will Judd

Right now, only high-end TVs support HDMI 2.1, and on the monitor market, nothing supports HDMI 2.1. On PC, DisplayPort 1.4 remains the only way to support 4K at framerates higher than 60 FPS, and none of these 4K screens currently support HDMI 2.1.  

Eve Devices' Spectrum series is a range of crowd-designed monitors aim to be the first to market with both HDMI 2.1 support and DisplayPort 1.4, features which will be unique to the screen's high-end 1440p 240Hz and 4K 144Hz models, which will offer gamers LG IPS screens, VRR support and more.

Both of these HDMI 2.1 enabled models will feature AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and Nvidia G-Sync Compatible certifications, DisplayHDR 600 certifications and thin bezels on all sides. This will make the Eve Spectrum series extremely well suited for vertical monitor configurations. This thinner bezel is something that's new to Eve's Spectrum design, which has seen some positive alterations since the series was first revealed in 2019

Eve's three Spectrum monitors are defined by their resolution, refresh rate and HDR support, with Eve releasing each of these displays with VESA mount compatibility, and without stands, allowing users to save $99/€99 if they already own a VESA compatible monitor arm. All of these screens are 27 inches in size.

The first of these three Spectrum displays is their $349/€349 model, which features a resolution of 2560x1440, a refresh rate of 144Hz, DisplayHDR400 certification, and an adaptive-Sync range of 48-144Hz. This model is known as the Eve Spectrum QHD 144Hz. This is the only model in the series to lack HDMI 2.1 support. 

Above the QHD 144Hz model is the QHD 240Hz, which ups the screen's refresh rate to 240Hz with a variable refresh rate (VRR) range of 48-240Hz, and the screen's HDR rating to DisplayHDR600. This screen uses an LG IPS panel and can deliver typical brightness levels as high as 650 nits and peak brightness levels as high as 750 nits. The screen also supports 10-bit colour (8-bit + A-FRC).

Those who want a sharper image can opt for Eve's Spectre 4K 144Hz, which will cost $599/€599 and deliver gamers a VRR range of 48Hz to 144Hz. The screen also meets VESA's DisplayHDR600 standard and offers the same peak and typical brightness levels as the Eve Spectrum QHD 144Hz.

All of Eve's Spectrum screens support 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space and 100% of the sRGB colour space. These monitors also feature a "low-haze 20% anti-glare coating. All models also feature dual DisplayPort 1.4 inputs, a USB Type-C input (DisplayPort 1.4 Alternative video input) and a single HDMI 2.0/2.1 (model dependant) input.

When looking at Eve's Spectrum range, it's easy to see that the range will tick a lot of boxes for gamers, offer competitive pricing, high-end specifications and an aesthetic that's well suited to gaming rooms and offices alike.

Pixel-Perfect Upscaling?

Unlike other monitors, Eve's Spectrum series is designed to offer "integer-ratio upscaling" for low-resolution input signals, offering display-level integer scaling. This feature allows low-resolution inputs to look sharp on Eve's screens, which is excellent news for fans of some classic PC games.

Eve plans to ship its Spectrum QHD 144Hz in Q3 of this year, with the company's Spectrum QHD 240Hz and 4K 144Hz models arriving a little later in Q4 2020.

Eve's Spectrum monitors can be pre-ordered here.

Was really hoping they announced DP 2.0 alongside this. The community has been asking forever for DP 2.0 moreso than HDMI 2.1Quote

Well, Eve isn't a company I'd trust my pre-order money to.


In fact this is a Hong Kong based "spawn" of the Finnish parent company, which is in the process of being filed for bankruptcy by Finnish Tax Administration. There hasn't been much noise in English speaking media about them but there's some links if you want to test your luck with Google translate.

Ah, you are one of those people.

They've acknowledged their mistakes and have fixed them. You can even ask them about their mistakes and they will tell you on their social media page. They aren't being shady and are not hiding it. That is also why they did not change their brand name to start a new company to get rid of the previously bad reputation. To earn trust. Also why you can preorder with only a small down payment that is fully refundable instead of outright buying the entire product.

And before you go on and say "they can claim they will refund doesn't mean they will" I can tell you they do as I've done it. No questions asked. Refunded within 24 hours.Quote

Yeah I am one of those people who suggests caution when pre-ordering, especially from companies with a bad track record at delivering.

I browsed through their website and forums and there's not a single mention of it, at least an obvious one. Also the official posters haven't posted in a while.Quote

One of those as in the people who only look at the bad instead of anything else and what they have done. Digging up random Chinese articles to prove a point.

Then you didn't even bother to check AT ALL. This article comes from their own forum posted TODAY if you follow the source.

As I said go ask them. They won't deny it. Just go to check their FB page if you are to lazy to ask yourself.Quote
