Zowie XL2586X 540hz esports monitor

Zowie, BenQ’s professional esports equipment brand, has announces the launch of its fastest ever monitor, the XL2586X 540Hz esports monitor.

These are the new XL-X Series Gaming monitors, including the 240Hz XL2546X and 540Hz XL2586X. The new monitors feature Fast-TN panels and exclusive DyAc 2 technology with a new dual backlight design for clear motion and precision gaming.

DyAc 2 is an upgrade to DyAc/ DyAc⁺, now utilising dual backlights with better precision control to eliminate motion blur and ghosting, with softened light output.

BenQ says their designs aim to provides professional gamers with ‘a higher level of comfortable ergonomic adjustability’, and the updated XL Setting to Share enables automatic in-game colour mode selection.

“BenQ is continuing its mission to develop professional esports equipment and enhance the gaming experience for players to perform at their best. Paying close attention to gamer feedback, Zowie has continuously updated the technology, since the introduction of the SL Series monitors in 2010,” it said in a press release.

“After 14 years of Zowie monitors, BenQ has continued to innovate and develop the technology for clearer visuals, improved software control for convenient setting optimisation, and enhanced the user experience.

“BenQ aims to deliver features and designs that directly benefit players in competitive gaming, avoiding unnecessarily flashy designs that do not contribute to competitiveness.”

Responsiveness is one of the most important characteristics for esports displays. The all-new XL2546X and XL2586X monitors use Fast-TN panel technology, promising faster response times than IPS panels, abd clearer and sharper outlines of moving objects.

“The XL2546X and the XL2586X 540Hz esports monitor effectively reduce overshoot which is caused by aggressive liquid crystal overdrive under certain circumstances on conventional panels,” BenQ says.

“Both XL2546X and XL2586X feature all-new height-adjustable designs with industrial-grade bearings, allowing gamers to set the ideal position on the fly, gliding without stuttering or over-adjusting. This helps players complete their setup in the esports arena in the shortest time possible, empowering them to quickly enter a focused state for the competition.”

The XL-X series features Auto Game Mode by XL Setting to Share software, enabling automatic colour mode switching based on screen content to eliminate menu adjustments for optimal gaming experiences.
