The gaming community is brimming with new and latest entries into the market, which will most certainly bring water to any gamer’s mouth. Recently, Philips, which is known for its excellent innovative technologies, has now unveiled a new gaming monitor, which is pretty huge. I mean literally.
Last year, the company released its Momentum 558M1RY, but though the monitor was an excellent piece of art, it still lacked some features. But the newly launched, Momentum 559M1RY builds upon its predecessor and brings the features which the previous monitor lacked.
The two monitors look identical from the design perspective, with a 55-inch monitor positioned above a Bowers & Wilkins 2.1 DTS soundbar. The 55-inch panel sounds a little too big, but hey, you can never have a bigger monitor for gaming. The panel is 4K, with an 80 PPI pixel density, VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification, and a 4,000:1 contrast ratio.
The Momentum 558M1RY sported a 120 Hz refresh rate, but this year the company has brought the 144 Hz refresh rate with its Momentum 559M1RY. Peak brightness remains at 1,200 nits.
The Momentum 559M1RYV comes with three HDMI 2.1 ports, which is a highly appreciated feature for the owners of Microsoft and Sony’s next-generation consoles. It will also include a DisplayPort 1.4 connection and four USB 3.2 Type-A ports. This time the monitor also comes with a USB Type-C port capable of charging the devices up to 65 W.
The monitor also brings in a lot of features and it seems like Philips has invested a lot of time in making this machine. The Momentum 559M1RYV utilizes AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync, so it should play nicely with AMD and NVIDIA’s latest graphics cards.
The cost of the Momentum 559M1RYV is still unknown neither the availability date is known. However, the Momentum 558M1RY launched for £1,200 in the UK and €1,399 in the EU, so the Momentum 559M1RYV will probably at least match that.
