What to look for in a monitor

In terms of their monitors, ASUS are particularly known for those which are geared towards gaming. Although there are several models available which are perfect for ‘standard’ requirements such as the home or office, we’re going to focus briefly here on three key things you should look out for when choosing a gaming monitor. That’s the ‘Three Rs’: Resolution, Refresh Rate and Response Time…

More detail and clarity is what game developers have been engineering towards for years, striving to make sure that the action on screen is as good as it can be. There’s no doubting that today’s titles are incredible on all fronts – particularly visually – so it follows that there’s little point in playing them on an old monitor with no more than standard definition capability. You’d be doing yourself a disservice in terms of your enjoyment, and you really won’t get the best out of your potential gameplay. In some cases the games may not even run correctly as older monitors won’t be able to handle the required specifications.

The higher the resolution the better the image you see on the screen will be. Gaming monitors are available in resolutions of 1080p (Full HD), 1440p (QHD/2K) or 2160p (UHD/4K). It might be tempting to go straight for a 4K monitor, but it’s not always going to be the case that this will be suitable. You should consider the set-up of your PC’s components, and whether there are any configurations or limitations which might preclude opting for something as powerful as UHD – but it’s also important to note that scale is a factor. You won’t actually notice much difference between Full HD and 4K on small to mid-size monitors. 4K comes into its own on much larger monitors, where the huge increase in pixels is much more noticeable.

Refresh Rate

This is a very important spec as it indicates how many frames per second are displayed – in other words, the ‘refresh rate’ translates as how many times the monitor refreshes the on-screen image per second. It is measured in Hz (Hertz). It can have quite a bearing on your gameplay.

A monitor with a 60Hz refresh rate, for instance, means that the screen is refreshed 60 times per second. This is a decent enough refresh rate but for today’s high octane gaming titles with more demanding performance requirements, it may not be enough. You may need to go for something higher – 120Hz, 144Hz, 165Hz etc… Monitors with these levels of refresh rate will not only have reduced image blur but they should eliminate tearing (the monitor displaying sections of multiple frames in a single screen draw).

Response Time

Response time refers to how long a monitor needs to turn an individual pixel from one colour to another. The faster the better, as this means smoother display – so in terms of the specs, the lower the number the better. Pixel response time is measured in milliseconds (ms) and a 1ms response time is the best available, though you will find that the difference between that and, say, 5ms is barely noticeable to the human eye.
