ViewSonic launched a new 4K gaming monitor, Color Space Support: 8 bit (6 bit + FRC)

ViewSonic has launched a new 4K gaming monitor that supports next-generation consoles. However, unlike the general 4K gaming monitor, it uses 6 bit+FRC to achieve 8-bit color, rather than native 8-bit.

This monitor model is VX2882-4KP, it is a 28-inch 4K monitor, with a maximum screen refresh rate of 150Hz and 1 millisecond MPRT response time. Due to the use of an IPS panel, VX2882-4KP also has a contrast ratio of 1000:1, but the highest brightness is only 300 nits, which may have a little impact on playing games in bright environments. In terms of color, this monitor covers 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 122% of the sRGB color gamut, which is quite good.

As mentioned above, VX2882-4KP supports the next-generation host, and the next-generation host can output up to 4K@120Hz. Therefore, VX2882-4KP also has an HDMI 2.1 interface to provide players with the most comprehensive next-generation console experience. The display is equipped with 1 HDMI 2,1 and 2 DP 1.4 ports, the number is also enough for ordinary players. As for things like variable refresh rate VRR, VX2882-4KP is also certified by AMD Freesync Premium, which can provide a tear-free gaming experience.

However, if you want to watch HDR content on this display, you may be a little disappointed, because VX2882-4KP only supports playing HDR10 content, and because the brightness is not high, the HDR experience will not be good.
Currently, ViewSonic’s VX2882-4KP monitor is only available in Japan at a price of about $830. But frankly speaking, at this price point, there are actually other better 4K gaming monitors to choose from.
