Philips has just expanded its gaming monitor portfolio and has introduced a new UltraWide gaming monitor with HDR support. The 345M1CR Momentum UltraWide gaming monitor, is being marketed to help you “take your console gaming experience to a new level.”

Being a curved display, the Philips Momentum UltraWide monitor is 2.4x faster than a standard monitor due to its high 144 Hz refresh rate. The monitor packs a 34-inch ultra-wide screen has an anti-glare coating with 21:9 aspect ratio with a response time of just 4 ms.

On the other hand, the Moving Picture Response Time (MPRT) is even lower at 1 ms, and max brightness levels go up to 300 cd/m². Also, Philips has mentioned support for HDR for this 32-inch Momentum UltraWide gaming monitor.
This means all the PS5 or Xbox Series X owners can enjoy 3440×1440 @144 Hz via the DisplayPort connection.
