What is different about a gaming monitor?
If you already have a monitor that is in good shape, you might wonder, ‘Do I even need a gaming monitor?’ While you may be tempted to believe that it’s simply a marketing gimmick, in truth, gaming monitors can make a major difference in your gaming experience.
Gaming monitors, as the name suggests, are designed specifically for gaming. It means they are created to make your graphics card and CPU output look as best as possible when gaming. They allow you to play games at a higher resolution and frame rate, which makes the graphics look more realistic. Moreover, if you have an IPS, you can enjoy an exceptional visual and gameplay experience with incredible black levels and colors.
While regular TV monitors are good too, they are better suited to watching movies or TV shows. Gameplay is an entirely different concept; therefore, its monitors are designed with very different expectations. Gaming monitors have specific features that can push games as far as they can go, so the gamer has the best possible playing experience.
If you’re still contemplating whether you should invest in a gaming monitor, it’s better to buy a good one now than buy an ordinary one and regret it later.
Features to look for when planning to get a gaming monitor
If you are new to the gaming world, browsing through all the gaming monitor options available can be pretty confusing. When considering what to look for in a monitor, you should first understand the gaming monitor’s specifications and how the specs translate into real-world performance.
- Image resolution and quality
Resolution is of prime importance when searching for a gaming monitor. You should look for a high dynamic range, or HDR, to enjoy more brightness, sharper colors, and improved detail in each game. Peak brightness is another essential feature; therefore, your monitor should have at least 400 nits of peak brightness. However, a 600 nits peak brightness monitor would be ideal for viewing HDR content.
A wide color gamut refers to the range of colors displayed on a monitor. Usually, monitors have sRGB 8-bit panels that deliver almost 16 million colors. However, a good gaming monitor is packed with 10-bit panels that produce over 1 billion colors and wider DCI-P3 color space, an added feature that is becoming increasingly popular in game development.
- Low response time
Response time determines how sharp an image will appear to viewers and whether it will display artifacts such as ghosting, blur, or trailing. A slow response time creates an overall input lag, making it almost unbearable to play a game.
The response time of a monitor is usually not as important for most PC users. However, for gamers, high response time results in ‘game over.’ Traditionally, TV or monitor screens shift colors so quickly that you won’t be able to notice it while web surfing or drafting an email. But in gaming, every millisecond counts. Therefore, you should look for a monitor with a low response time of between one to five milliseconds.
- Fast processor for lower input lag
While input lag may seem similar to response time, they are both different concepts. Input lag is the time that it takes your gaming screen to show an action after you’ve pressed the button on your controller. Suppose you press the trigger to shoot; input lag is the time in milliseconds that it takes your player to start firing their weapon on the screen.
You should aim for a gaming monitor with low input lag so that your game feels more responsive and fun. The better your processor, the lower its input lag. A good gaming monitor should be able to provide an input lag below 10ms in 4K 144Hz.
- High refresh rate for smoother play
Refresh rate is the number of frames/ second and is measured in Hertz (Hz). It is basically the number of times the monitor’s screen refreshes entirely. For gamers, a high monitor refresh rate is crucial, and thanks to technological advancements, it has now become possible.
Regular monitors have a refresh rate of 60Hz, which is not enough. If you want to invest in a decent gaming monitor, you should look for a number above this. Ideally, you should aim for one that offers 120- 144 Hz or more if you want to enjoy smooth and responsive gameplay. In addition, the gaming monitor should have excellent frame timing so that the gaming experience is consistent and free from stutter.
Ordinary monitors often face syncing issues when it comes to pacing the frame rate with the graphics hardware of your PC or consoles. To counter this, gaming monitors have adaptive sync technology and variable refresh rate (VRR) to ensure that there’s no screen tearing or lag.
PRISM is the ultimate stop for gaming lovers, and with a PRISM monitor, you will never have to settle for an average gaming experience. At PRISM, you can find both regular and gaming monitors.
