ASRock Phantom Gaming PG27FFX2A first gaming monitor with 520 Hz

ASRock Phantom Gaming PG27FFX2A, first gaming monitor with 520 Hz IPS display –

The Phantom Gaming PG27FFX2A is one of two IPS gaming monitors that ASRock introduced earlier this year. As a reminder, the other is the PG27QFW2A, a slower model but with higher resolution, which we presented separately. In addition, the company recently introduced the PGO27QFS2A, PGO270W2A and PGO34QRT2A monitors with different OLED panel types and specifications.

According to ASRock, the PG27FFX2A brings its IPS display to 520 Hz, making it faster than the Dell Alienware AW2524HF2A and PGO34QRT2A Dell Alienware AW2524HF and the MSI MPG 272QPX. However, the PG27FFX2A does not share its panel with these two monitors. On the one hand, the Alienware AW2524HF monitor combines its 500Hz refresh rate with 1080p resolution on a 24.5-inch screen. The MPG 272QPX, on the other hand, goes even further with a 1440p resolution and a 27-inch screen.

The PG27FFX2A falls in between with a 27-inch screen and a native resolution of 1080p. ASRock announces 1ms GtG response time, support for AMD FreeSync Premium to reduce image tearing and 178/178 degree viewing angles. In addition, the panel is said to achieve a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 as well as a DCI-P3 color space coverage of 90% and a peak brightness of 400 nits.

Although the monitor doesn't have VESA DisplayHDR certification to speak of, it does feature Adaptive Sync technologies on its single DisplayPort 1.4 and dual HDMI 2.1 video inputs. Separately, TFT Central reports that ASRock has included a USB hub with “some data ports” as well as a 3.5mm jack and a stand that allows adjustment of the screen's height, rotation, rotation and tilt. Unfortunately, the price and availability of the Phantom Gaming PG27FFX2A are currently unknown. ASRock has not yet listed the gaming monitor on its website.
