Lenovo Legion Y27gq 1440p 240Hz G-Sync Monitor To Launch This Spring

Earlier this year, Lenovo revealed their 27-inch Legion Y27gq G-Sync monitor, a gaming display that currently sits above all of today's other 1440p offerings, promising response times of 0.5ms and a refresh rate of 240Hz. 

Today, 240Hz monitors are primarily restricted to high-end 1080p gaming screens, with 1440p variants being relatively unheard of. This rarity is due to the screen's DisplayPort 1.4 requirements, as 1440p at 240Hz sits well above the bandwidth capabilities of DisplayPort 1.2. 

On the display side, the y27gq is said to be "NearEdgeless", making the screen ideal for multi-monitor configurations. Previous specifications listings have also given this screen a colour coverage rating of 90% DCI-P3. Older listings for this monitor mentioned HDR support, but Lenovo's store listing currently makes no references to HDR support. 

Built into the base of Lenovo's Legion monitor is a detachable Harman Kardon certified speaker, which is said to provide superior audio quality to other built-in display audio solutions. The monitor also offers a free hanger for headphones, support for VESA compatible mounting solutions and support for USB charging/connectivity. Ergonomic lift, tilt, pivot and swivel functions are also available. 

The Lenovo Legion Y27gq-25 is an ultrapowerful monitor that elevates your gaming experience. This monitor is designed to dominate with an impeccable blend of 240Hz refresh rate, 0.5ms response time,
and the latest NVIDIA®? G-SYNC™ technology. This 27" gaming monitor with its NearEdgeless QHD
display and detachable Harman Kardon certified speaker takes your gaming experience to a whole new level.


Lenovo currently lists their Legion Y27gq G-Sync gaming monitor with a "Spring" release date, with the company's CES announcement hinting at a product launch in April.

Oof, 27", 240 Hz and GSYNC? I bet the price tag will also be amazing...


Now the question is, can you see a difference between 144 and 240 Hz? Is there even a real measurement about the polling rate of the human eye? 😅
After just googling I found the headline of an article on nature.com saying "Humans perceive flicker artifacts at 500 Hz", so I guess we should even be able to see a difference between 240 and 500 Hz 🥴 Oh my...Quote

Well I can still see a difference between 165 and 120 providing tests show consistent frames at that rate. Can't see why someone couldnt see the difference between 240 and 144.

I am quite interested in this. But 1440p @ 240hz.. poor display port, that little cables gonna be busy. Quote
