Lenovo is getting ready to launch two new gaming monitors. Both have the same design, 27–inch panel size and adjustable stand, but the panels themselves do differ. One is a cheaper 1080p display, while the other offers 1440p instead.
First, we have the Y27-30, a 27-inch IPS monitor with FullHD resolution, 0.5ms response time (MPRT), and 144Hz native refresh rate, which can be overclocked to 180Hz. With an 8-bit panel, 1000:1 contrast ratio and 400nits of typical brightness, the panel can cover 99% of the sRGB colour spectrum. Moreover, it supports AMD FreeSync Premium and AdaptiveSync.
Then, there's the Y27q-30, which also has a 27-inch IPS panel with a 0.5ms response time and 180Hz refresh rate (OC), 1000:1 contrast ratio and 400nits of typical brightness. However, this one has a QHD resolution and a 10-bit LUT, bumping sharpness and colour depth considerably. Like the Y27-30, it also supports AMD FreeSync Premium and AdaptiveSync and can cover 99% of the sRGB colour gamut.
Both monitors come with 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4, 2x 3W speakers, a USB hub with 4x USB 3.2 Gen1 ports, and 2x 3W speakers. Additionally, they come with a height-adjustable stand that also allows the user to tilt, swivel and pivot, as well.
