ViewSonic have recently announced the launch of their forthcoming Elite XG270 display. Not to be confused with the also announced XG270QG (a 27″ Nano IPS model with 1440p and 144/165Hz refresh rate), the XG270 is instead a 27″ model with a 1080p resolution, but a native 240Hz IPS panel. This will offer another alternative in the market to the range of other 27″ 240Hz IPS panels we’ve seen announced to date such as the Acer Nitro VG272X, Dell Alienware AW2720HF, Acer Nitro XV273X and LG 27GN750 for instance.
The new XG270 is 27″ in size and features a 1920 x 1080 resolution IPS panel. A 1ms G2G response time spec is advertised, although take this with a pinch of salt for sure with a technology like this. The 240Hz native refresh rate is supported through adaptive sync for variable refresh rates from both AMD and NVIDIA systems
In other specs there is a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 16.7m colour depth and standard 99% sRGB colour gamut.
There are also 2x 3W stereo speakers built in to the screen along with various RGB lighting options. The lighting will be controllable via the Elite RGB Controller on-screen display (OSD) software, which will be the first app for ViewSonic’s Elite line when it is released. It lets you pick colors and browse through different lighting modes. There are two mouse bungees (right and left) and headphone hook to make gaming more convenient and tidy as well.
The XG270 is expected to be available in November at a price of $429.99 USD. More specs and details when we get them.
