Sanjoy: Specifications for gaming monitors and other computer components require sorting through a variety of features. It makes purchasing anything computer related extremely difficult. The evolution of gaming monitors has been very rapid. In India, we’ve noticed a clear preference for IPS monitors, which are known for having the most consistent and natural colors. However, until recently it was known that IPS monitors are not fast enough in terms of response time, which is essential for gaming.

Many different and high-end monitors have been launched in the last 2 years and the latest which is the most preferred is “Fast IPS” which has become a game changer in the market. On the other hand, gaming actually requires a frontal view and a VA panel, which scores higher than an IPS in terms of contrast ratio. The color shift associated with the VA panel doesn’t matter here. Gaming rightfully requires a refresh rate of at least 144 Hz and a response time of at least 1 ms is better and relevant for professional gamers.

Choosing the right monitor requires careful consideration of characteristics such as screen resolution, screen size, energy efficiency, design, technology used, number of ports, sound output, video output and more. With USB-C emerging as the unified standard for charging and data transfer. In addition, a high-speed display is emerging as the most important and fastest emerging must-have feature for the efficient use of monitors.
