CES 2019 - Lenovo is the first in the world with a gaming monitor rocking a native 2560 x 1440 resolution and huge 240Hz refresh rate with its new Legion Y27gq monitor. The native 1440p resolution and 240Hz refresh rate are joined with G-Sync HDR, too.

It was until CES 2019 that we had 240Hz refresh rate monitors tapping out with 1920 x 1080 resolutions, while 165Hz was the max we had for 1440p, until the Lenovo Legion Y27gq. Lenovo explains: "The Lenovo Legion Y27gq is an ultrapowerful monitor that elevates your gaming experience. This monitor is designed to dominate with an impeccable blend of 240Hz refresh rate, 0.5ms response time, and the latest NVIDIA G-Sync HDR technology".

Lenovo is using an AU Optronics panel with the 27-inch display arriving with 0.5ms G2G response times, 90% DCI-P3 coverage, and the aforementioned NVIDIA G-Sync HDR support.

The new Lenovo Legion Y27gq will cost $1000 and go on sale in April.
