A gaming display with a blazing 165Hz refresh rate

For gaming displays, the higher the refresh rate, the smoother your gaming experience is. Along the same vein, the higher the stability of a display, the less it poses negative impacts on your eyes – as a flickering screen will accelerate eye fatigue. In light of the technicalities involved, only the products that feature both high refresh rate and high resolution are regarded as flagship displays. Nevertheless, the HUAWEI MateView GT 27” achieves an impressive 165Hz refresh rate with a QHD resolution, effectively eliminating display flickers for a buttery-smooth gaming experience.

Cinematic picture quality

Colour gamut of a display is the range of colours that can be reproduced. In the nature, visible spectrum makes the biggest colour gamut, which includes call colours that are visible to human eye. This means that a display with a wider colour gamut can reproduce colours more accurately as well as content that is more authentic. The screen of HUAWEI MateView GT 27” supports a resolution of up to 2560 x 1440. Coupled with the cinematic-grade 90% DCI-P3 colour gamut, the monitor provides excellent visual experience whether it is for gaming, videos, entertainment, creativity and productivity. The support for 8-bit colour depth allows it to render 1.67 million colours further advancing with smooth and natural transition.

Never miss the little details

Meanwhile, the HUAWEI MateView GT 27” supports high dynamic range (HDR 10) output for excellent picture quality. The biggest benefit of HDR is that it helps to amplify details on-screen in vivid colour, in both the bright and dark scenes. Especially for darker scenes, it can help to brighten up the darker parts and show the details more clearly, making any content more realistic to users. Whether for HD pictures or high-res videos, this gaming monitor brings every detail to life!
