Now we have more information about this high-end PC display, allowing us to talk about more precise details like its adaptive sync range, the display's typical brightness and the number of active backlit zones that are available on the monitor.
While the Momentum 436M6VBPAB seems extremely capable on paper, the display will ship in the UK for £699 in May, making it relatively inexpensive a 4K monitor of this size, especially given its HDR credentials.
One of the shortcomings of this display is its extremely narrow Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) window, which is 48-62Hz, offering a tiny 14FPS window for Adaptive Sync. While this window is better than nothing, it would have been nice to see this range extend down to at least 40 like most 4K Adaptive Sync/FreeSync monitors. The Momentum 436M6VBPAB is not branded as a FreeSync display and does not qualify for AMD's FreeSync 2 standard, given its lack of LFC support.
To add some additional clarification to the Momentum 436M6VBPAB's HDR capabilities, the display can offer a peak brightness of 1000 cd/m2 and a typical brightness of 720 cd/m2 and provide deeper blacks using a 32-zone edge lit local dimming backlight. While this will not offer the same levels of local dimming as a Full-array local dimming setup, it will provide deeper blacks than a standard backlight.
Philips uses both their Wide Color Gamut backlighting alongside a Quantum Dot coating on their display to achieve an HDR ready colour gamut, 97.6% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space on a 10-bit colour (8-bit + FRC) panel.
The display will support HDMI 2.0, Displayport 1.2, mini DisplayPort and USB Type-C (DP alt mode) inputs, allowing this display to work with modern PCs and consoles. Given this display's size and HDR capabilities, Philips provides users with a remote to give it more television-like like capabilities. The inclusion of a remote is great news for those who will use this display to play movies or console games.
The Momentum 436M6VBPAB will be the first of many new entries into the Philips Momentum lineup, with availability for this model starting in May with a price tag of £699 in the UK.
