Philips Evnia 34M2C8600 curved QD-OLED gaming monitor debuts with reduced price
The Evnia 34M2C8600 is a monitor that Philips unveiled in October with the Evnia 27M2C5500W, Evnia 34M2C7600MV and Evnia 42M2N8900. Initially, the company decided against revealing too many details about any of the monitors, including the Evnia 34M2C8600. Philips describes the entire Evnia series as follows:
Evnia's new gaming monitor is designed for everyone. One of the features that make this monitor stand out is the Ambiglow feature; it showcases what Evnia is all about: innovation, friendliness, openness, and a touch of playfulness...The Ambiglow feature allows each gamer to set the mood, or the ambience, of the room. This allows each gamer to feel comfortable and personalise their gaming experience.
A 34-inch QD-OLED panel is at the heart of the Evnia 34M2C8600, which outputs at 3,440 x 1,440 pixels with a 21:9 aspect ratio, an 1800R curvature and DisplayHDR True Black 400 certification. Additionally, the Evnia 34M2C8600 offers 97.8% AdobeRGB colour space coverage, 0.1 ms response times and 450 nits peak brightness when viewing HDR content. Philips adds that the monitor achieves a 100 Hz refresh rate over HDMI and 175 Hz via DisplayPort or USB Type-C.
The company's decision to use HDMI 2.0 ports explains why the Evnia 34M2C8600 cannot utilise its peak refresh rate with HDMI-connected devices. For reference, the Evnia 34M2C8600 has two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort 1.4 connection and a USB Type-C port that supports 90 W Power Delivery and DisplayPort Alt Mode. Moreover, the monitor has a USB Type-A hub with six connections, stereo 5 W speakers and a KVM switch. Currently, the Evnia 34M2C8600 is orderable for £1,149 or €1,419 in the Eurozone, not £1,479.99 and €1,849 as the company announced in October.
