What are Gaming Monitors?

We often ask ourselves when buying a monitor, whats a gaming monitor all about, specially when buying one in Pakistan. Why do they cost so much more than others? What do all of these resolutions imply in terms of gaming?

Gaming Monitors are monitors specifically designed and created specifically for gaming needs, with higher performance, better resolutions, modern design and long lasting quality. Here we'll get to see what makes them so different from LED Monitors. 

Native Resolution:

The term "native resolution" describes the actual number of pixels on the screen. Monitor Resolutions often range from 1920 x 1080 to 2460 x 1440 to 3840 x 2160 or, if you're a madman with huge funds, 7680 x 4320. The size and proximity of the screen will affect how noticeable individual pixels are; for most gamers, 1440p hits the ideal balance. Surprisingly, more than two-thirds of consumers still chose 1080p as the most popular resolution on Steam. Only 2% of gamers utilize a 4k gaming monitor, making it a niche product.


It's simple to scoff at those who prioritize size over all other factors. However, the reality is that size does matter, and having a big display might have a more significant impact than factors like input latency. Twenty-seven inches screen works well for most gamers. 

Response Time:

A frame's arrival at the monitor's input socket and its eventual presentation on the screen are separated by an inherent delay. In intense game sessions, this should be as low as feasible. A TN or VA panel should be able to respond in as little as 1ms. 

The blurrier the image is, the longer a pixel stays on your screen, hence longer response times are a bad sign for normal monitors. That's because these trails of moving pictures that resemble they are "ghosting" the screen. Since the image will change quickly with a quick response time, it will be clear and more smooth. Gaming Monitors have an MPRT of two milliseconds. As a result, your game will have wonderfully realistic looks.

Refresh Rates:

The number of images displayed per second is the "refresh rate." The display is smoother the higher the refresh rate. Better visuals will result from adaptive sync (Gsync for Nvidia, FreeSync for AMD, and Variable Refresh Rate on a television), which will synchronize the refresh rate to the incoming frames. Make sure the technology you choose is compatible with the GPU's maker.


Bright, sparkling lights are called HDR or high dynamic range. Appealing graphics may be produced by turning up some of your screen's brightness while leaving others in the dark. In general, TVs do this task better than gaming monitors. There are certain pitfalls to avoid here because not all HDR is made equal, and the capacity to receive an HDR signal is not quite the same as displaying a beautiful image. When weighing your selections, pay attention to the monitor's maximum brightness or the number of nits.

Monitor Options:

Nowadays a lot of Gamers are looking towards Monitors with more than just the technical but stylish aspect to them as well. Below are the two types of Gaming Monitors: 

  • Curved Gaming Monitor
  • Wide Gaming Monitor

Why a Curved Gaming Monitor?

It's become popular to play on a curved gaming monitor (like the  in recent years. But what utility does a device like this monitor provide? It more closely resembles the shape of your eye. Your cornea is curved, so the display you're looking at should also be. In this approach, more of the screen will be visible at once as the light emanating from the edges of the screen will arrive at nearly the same time as the light emanating from the center.

Wide Monitors:

Monitors come in various widths, with 16:9 being the norm and 21:9 being preferable. Ultrawide displays excel in specific game genres, such as first-person shooters, although they are more expensive and not ideal for everyone. The norm for most of us is 16:9.


Can Gaming Frame Rates be Enhanced by Downscaling a 4K Display?

Naturally, you might consider the native resolution to be the maximum. You may always use the resolution scaler integrated into the game to lower the resolution if you run across a resource-intensive title. More horsepower is required to deliver more pixels, and more VRAM is required to store the frame buffer. For instance, the new 3090 can produce 8k because of its large 24GB of memory.

Is a Display of 75 Hz Suitable for PC Gaming?

You'll have to decide which is important to you because high refresh rates are often easier to accomplish at the expense of resolution. Is 1080p at 360 Hz or 8 k at 60 Hz better for gaming? Even if the quantity of bits traveling down the DisplayPort connection remains the same, the answer will rely on your hardware and personal preferences.

When you reach 4k, your frequency is capped at 60 Hz. Therefore, the change to 75 Hz may be considerable. A 144hz gaming display is perhaps a more reasonable objective if you're at 1440p.
