Xiaomi is one of the largest tech industries in Asia, the company recently released its A-series of TVs. while having many competitors in the market the company has to come up with various innovative ideas in order to be in the race.
Recently Xiaomi disclosed its plans to release a new 24.5-inch external gaming monitor that will come with 240Hz and 360Hz refresh rates.
It is reported to start at 999 yuan which is roughly $148. Though it’s cheap the monitor can nowhere be compared with Asus ROG Swift 360 Hz PG259QN.
Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN comes with the tagline “the world’s fastest esports gaming monitor”. With the considerably high refresh rate, it can be easily seen why hardcore games and esports enthusiasts would be attracted to such a device, and now it seems that Xiaomi would like a piece of that particular action.
The 240Hz monitor is definitely the entry-level monitor. The other details regrading the monitor are still unknown.
Even if the price is considered less it must be noted that the monitor’s price reported is only for its china market. When Xiaomi products are released outside of the china market they tend to get unreasonably expensive.
But it’s 360Hz monitor sure can give Asus a run for its money in regards to affordability.
The new Xiaomi monitors are said to feature IPS panels which will be manufactured by AU Optronics.
But analysts claim that for the gaming monitor to be with 360Hz refresh rate, it is impossible to keep the cost within 1,000 yuan.
Currently, there is a huge demand in the market for displays with high refresh rates. The highest available display currently is at 280Hz. With all tech companies for displays above 280Hz, it will be a tough competition for Xiaomi’s new display when it gets released.
