HP announces the x24i and x24ih Gaming monitors with 144 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response time
HP has announced two new gaming monitors, the HP x24i Gaming and HP x24ih Gaming. Both are value orientated models with refresh rates to match the typical mid-range PCs they are likely to be used alongside.
Technically there is only one new monitor here, with the difference for the ‘h’ model being a modified height-adjustable stand. We suspect the ‘i’ model might be cheaper due to the more straightforward stand, making it the more appealing option if you plan to leave the stand in the box and mount to a 100 x 100 VESA adapter.
The x24i uses a 24-inch FullHD IPS panel with a 1 ms response time (using overdrive) and 144 Hz refresh rate. The low latency, fast refresh (above 120 Hz), and low framerate compensation (LFC) gives this display FreeSync Premium certification. The maximum brightness is 350 nits, and colour accuracy is OK for general use at 99% sRGB. Video input is handled by Display Port 1.2 and HDMI 2.0, with a 3.5 mm headphone jack for those using HDMI and keeping their case tucked away under the desk.
HP hadn’t specified availability or pricing at the time of writing. However, based on similar monitors like the Acer Nitro VG240Y or Asus VP249QGR, we would expect the HP x24i Gaming and HP x24ih Gaming to be in the neighbourhood of US$200 – 220.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
