Over the weekend we reported on the Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB a huge 43-inch monitor which offers an impressive feature set, delivering DisplayHDR 1000 certified HDR capabilities, support for VESA Adaptive-Sync and a 4K resolution with a 60Hz refresh rate. 

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.

Looking at the official philips spec sheet it says the refresh range over HDMI and DisplayPort is 23 - 80 Hz, so a pretty good figure. 47 - 63 Hz is over VGA connection acording to the same sheet that can be found here: https://www.download.p4c.philips.com...ab_00_pss_.pdfQuote

Nice, maybe Nvidia will reconsider not supporting VESA Adaptive Sync once all major TV manufacturers are on board. Though I strongly doubt it, at least as long as they have the advantage in performance people are willing to pay the G-Sync premium.

Maybe they'll go full Nvidia on it and only support it for a narrower range of refresh rates (or up to 60Hz) and keep G-Sync a premium product. Shudder.Quote

It all comes down to how the HDMI 2.1 certification will be handled. If it is required to support all HMDI 2.1 features to be able to get a certification for it, than that's done. Cause NVIDIA won't put itself out of the high refresh rate 4K gaming and that's not possible with older HDMI versions. So they will go for it and they will be forced to support VRRQuote
