    iiyama, one of the leading manufacturers of high quality monitors, is proud to announce the 24 inch ultimate gaming monitor. Designed for the hardcore gamers, this new iiyama screen is a real e-sports changer, offering the gamers the competitive edge they need to make split second decisions.

    ProLite GB2488HSU is iiyama's latest dedicated professional TN LED monitor, specifically designed for gamers. It features a response time of 1ms, which ensures fast, fluid and accurate transition between the images and reduces ghosting or smearing, making this high specification screen is ideal for FPS (First Person Shooter) games. The 144 Hz Refresh rate of the GB2488HSU offers a superior frame rate and aids in reducing motion blur and provides smoother animations.

    The e-gaming customizable functions of the GB2488HSU enable user optimized functions to improve gaming experience, and the Video Mode Adjust can match any aspect such as 5:4 with pixel perfect accuracy. Additionally, it is also possible to adjust the brightness and the dark shades with the Black Tuner, giving greater viewing performance in shadowed areas. Blistering performance can be achieved with the Direct Drive function, which bypasses a number of functions handled by the screen, allowing your card to drive the screen directly delivering the highest frame rate and the lowest lag. When you have customized the monitor with your own preferred settings, save them for a future use in the User Settings Storage (3 users max). If you do not have any preferences GB2488HSU is equipped with 5 screen modes for different purposes of use: Standard, Sport Game, FPS Game, Strategy Game and Text.

    Due to the all-encompassing connectivity, ProLite GB2488HSU has an exceptional suitability to work with any peripheral: DVI-DL, 2xHDMI, DisplayPort, USB HUB and speakers. Guaranteeing ease of use across platforms such as games consoles and workstations. This 24" also incorporates an ergonomic height adjustable stand with a range of 13 cm and pivot function for portrait viewing for perfect posture support when gaming.

    The ProLite GB2488HSU is an ideal screen for the RTS, FPS console games and the demanding gamers who settle only for the best specifications.

    The ProLite GB2488HSU will be launched across Europe by iiyama on March 13th 2014 and will be available at a RRP of Euro 319 incl. VAT and a 3 years 'on-site' Advance Exchange Warranty.

    144Hz on console 30fps soooo useful. :D
    Also why is it so expensive, Benq XL24 series are cheaper and good enough.

    If I'm going to downgrade to TN, it will be a 27" ROG G-SYNC.

    Yeah what exactly is the difference between these two, taking out the marketing and getting down to real facts.

    That's kinda funny, all of the listed technologies have already been seen in benq XL series. Black equilizer, 1ms response, Instant mode for lower input lag.. I own benq xl2411T and it's really nice, althought I can still feel some lag comparing to my old CRT. The next step in monitors evolution I personally would like to see is increasing of ppi. I really want some 24" 2560x1440 gaming monitor with all sweet
    things as 144hz/1ms response/low input lag. But instead they just add lots of useless features like scaling "5:4 with pixel perfect accuracy"...

    And that's the thing I just don't understand at all, so a Yoga 2 has a 13.3" touch display @ 3200x1800, but what do desktops get? $400 27" touch displays @ 1080p. What the fuck?

    Because is both easier and cheaper to manufacture small screens with high DPI instead of big screen with high DPI

    You could, but input lag would be massive so that 144Hz would suck.

    All popular esports games are easy to run at 144FPS on relatively high end hardware. CSGO, LoL, etc
