The Philips Momentum 559M1RYV is the follow-up to last year's Momentum 558M1RY, which already included plenty of features. However, the Momentum 559M1RYV takes things further with a 144 Hz refresh rate, HDMI 2.1 and USB Type-C Power Delivery. All the good features of last year's model remain too, including 1,200 nit peak brightness, AMD FreeSync, NVIDIA G-Sync and Philips Ambiglow.

Philips has unveiled a new gaming monitor, and a huge one at that. The Momentum 559M1RYV builds on the Momentum 558M1RY, which the company released last year. However, the Momentum 559M1RYV possesses a few important features that the Momentum 558M1RY lacks, in our opinion.

Outwardly, the two monitors look identical, with a 55-inch monitor positioned above a Bowers & Wilkins 2.1 DTS soundbar. The 55-inch panel remains a 4K one with an 80 PPI pixel density, VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification and a 4,000:1 contrast ratio. Philips has replaced the 120 Hz refresh rate from last year's model with a 144 Hz one though, which is a welcome improvement. Peak brightness remains at 1,200 nits, incidentally.

Philips has equipped the Momentum 559M1RYV with three HDMI 2.1 ports too, making it ideal for Microsoft and Sony's next-generation consoles. Additionally, Philips continues to include a DisplayPort 1.4 connection and four USB 3.2 Type-A ports. The company has found space for a USB Type-C port though, which can recharge devices at up to 65 W.

While the Momentum 559M1RYV supports high refresh rates, Philips has not skimped in other areas. Specifically, the monitor utilises AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync, so it should play nicely with AMD and NVIDIA's latest graphics cards, if you can source one.  

Philips is yet to announce how much the Momentum 559M1RYV will cost, nor when it will be available. However, the Momentum 558M1RY launched for £1,200 in the UK and €1,399 in the EU, so the Momentum 559M1RYV will probably at least match that.
