For those who love to play games at home, only a high-performance game host computer combined with a monitor with high resolution and high refresh rate will bring a top-level gaming experience. In fact, there is no specific definition for a gaming monitor, the mainstream media and industry default rules have the following standards:
High refresh rate: 144Hz and above
Response time: ≤5ms
Color gamut: 99%sRGB
The refresh rate of a display is the number of times per second that image refreshes on the screen. For example, a 60Hz display will update the screen 60 times per second. Overall, the refresh rate determines how smoothly motion appears on your screen. The refresh rate recommended by mainstream gaming monitor is 144Hz.
The response time of a monitor is the period taken by a display to change from one colour to another, which is of great importance for FPS gamers. The shorter the response time of the monitor, the less smear and clearer the game screen is.
Generally, the response time of ordinary monitors is 5-8ms (1ms is 1/1000th of a second), while e-sports monitors are generally less than 3ms. The faster the response speed, the higher the price of the monitor.
