    Taiwanese company BenQ is just about ready to release a new gaming-friendly monitor, the 24-inch XL2411T which features a 120 Hz refresh rate, support for NVIDIA's 3D Vision 2 technology, and a 1ms GtG response time (TN panel).

    Seen below, BenQ's display also has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 (12,000,000:1 DCR), D-Sub, DVI and HDMI connectivity, a 0.001-frame input lag, a stand allowing for height, tilt, pivot, stroke and swivel adjustment, plus a FPS Mode, and the Black eQualizer color engine technology (which improves visibility in dark scenes). Unfortunately BenQ has yet to say when the XL2411T will become available of how much it will cost.

    Is this 120hz available only on Stereo mode, or can be used on normal mode also?

    ANOTHER ONE! Although I must admit, I still really like BenQ, especially for their stand design, build quality and just quality overall (at least that is the story for my ancient BenQ screen).

    I wonder if BenQ will dive into IPS or PLS panels that are targeted towards gamers anytime soon?

    Stop this shit. We have the power to drive larger displays, so lets do so. If BenQ is going to advertise this as a "gaming" monitor (FPS mode) then design the monitor to be more beneficial to gamers with a 16:10 screen ratio. Ugh.

    EDIT: And dual-link DVI can do it too.

    I love the little bit of extra bezel that juts out the bottom for the buttons.

    Brilliant design. Someone should get a promotion. Surprised it's not glossy though.

    DP and DVI don't have enough bandwidth and HDMI doesn't support 120hz. something like 67% people on Steam are using monitors with a resolution below 1920x1080. 3% use 1920x1200...

    What are you talking about? Both DP and Dual-link DVI are superior to HDMI and support 1920x1200 120 Hz. DP 1.2 supports even 2560x1600 120 Hz.
     
    Zubasa and Binge say thanks.

    there is not enough bandwidth that's why they keep making these silly 27" 1920x1080 @ 120hz monitors.

    You nailed it on the previous post. Only few people have higher than 1080p and that's why they don't release any better, but there's not technical impediment to 1920x1200 120Hz. There's more than enough bandwidth.

    I'm not exactly sure DP 1.2 doesn't have enough bandwidth for 2560x1440 @ 120Hz. 2560x1600? Probably not. 2560x1440? Maybe.


    And if not, just make it use two cables. That wouldn't stop people who really want such monitors.

    Only going by the fact that 3840x2160 @60 is posible, it should have more than enough for 1600p @ 120. 8.3 Mpixel @ 60 vs 4 Mpixel @120.

    EDIT: and that's on 30 bpp. 24bpp should be easier.

    http://www.vesa.org/wp-content/uplo...evCon-Presentation-DP-1.2-Dec-2010-rev-2b.pdf

    Page 11 claims "DP v1.2 enables Beyond Full HD Stereo support at 120Hz…" so 2560x1440 is a given.

    +1

    That's pro monitor territory tho, not sure if manufacturers would want to go that route.

    I feel like a good dual link DVI has enough bandwidth

    So judging by the model number this will be the successor to the XL2410T. Because going with the physical shape it looks more like the XL2410 than the XL2420T. Also it has to be cheaper than the XL2420T looking at its specs comparison.
    I'm still going to get the XL2420T.

    120hz without display port? Benq you should learn from samsung.
    HDMI can't deliver 120hz at full hd, unless you use custom resolution.

    There's no real competition (there's cartelism) among display makers. Hence the 1080p menace.

    Some monitors can hit 120 Hz through overclocking... seems more hardcore than PC overclocking.

    I've seen that an extra 20% seems to be around maximum as far as monitor overclocking is concerned. I think it was a thread on TPU actually. And yes very hardcore from what I've seen, it seems there a little, if any warning signs if it is unstable before any damage is done.

    Just an offtopic question, are there any ports out there yet able to provide 7,680×4,320@120Hz? I am only asking because of this endless discussions about resolutions and such. We have the technology to make HD resolutions on 5" screens, therefore we can have that resolution on a 27" display; however if there aren't any ports of graphic cards that supports it....what's the point in the end? Btw DisplayPort can only do 3,840 x 2,160@60Hz, so...
