CES 2019 | Lenovo's Legion Y44w and Legion Y27gq monitors boast 144 Hz and 240 Hz refresh rates, respectively
While we here at Notebookcheck like to focus on the latest laptops, especially gaming laptops, we have to admit that gaming on a larger display certainly has an appeal. To that end, Lenovo’s new Legion Y44w and Y27gq monitors may scratch the itch of gamers in search of high refresh rate displays.
The Y44w is a massive 43.4-inch Ultrawide curved monitor. The FreeSync certified display has a DWUXGA resolution (3840x1200) with a 32:10 aspect ratio. The Y44w is HDR 400 certified and boasts a wide color gamut (99% sRGB, BT.709, DCI-P3). Rated response times are quick at 4 ms gray-to-gray with its Overdrive mode enabled, but the defining spec is the Y44w’s fast 144 Hz refresh rate. This makes the Y44w one of the largest and fastest Ultrawide monitors on the market. Additionally, the Y44w boasts a bevy of ports. Ports include two HDMI 2.0 inputs, a DisplayPort 1.4 hookup, an audio jack, a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 port, a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 port, and a 4-port USB 3.0 Type-A hub that can pop out or be hidden with a push.
For those that want an even faster display, there’s the Legion Y27gq. The 27-inch borderless gaming monitor boasts an insane 240 Hz refresh rate with 0.5 ms response times. The monitor has a QHD (2560x1440) resolution and is Nvidia G-Sync certified. The Y27gq covers 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and is equipped with an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, an audio jack, and a 4-port USB 3.0 Type-A hub.
Both the Lenovo Legion Y44w and Legion Y27gq will be available in April. The Y44w will retail for US $1200, while the Y27gq will retail for US $1000.
