Cooler Master introduces its first Mini-LED gaming monitor, the Tempest G2711, showcasing a unique cooling design. While Cooler Master’s monitor lineup is geared towards gamers, it’s currently categorized into the Tempest Mini LED series, GM series, and GA series. Despite not yet attaining widespread popularity, the company’s recent release, the Tempest G2711, has the potential to alter this trend, as it appears to fulfill the essential requirements of hardcore gamers.
Cooler Master is gearing up to launch the Tempest GP2711 gaming monitor, equipped with cutting-edge features that make it an appealing choice for gamers. Highlighting its panel specifications, the GP2711 features a 27-inch Mini LED display with a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440. Notably, it introduces a VA panel, marking the company’s initial foray into this type within the Mini LED segment—an intriguing choice when coupled with a Mini LED backlighting method. Tailored for gamers, the monitor boasts a 165 Hz refresh rate and a response time rated at less than 4ms (GtG).
Furthermore, the GP2711 boasts a competitive 95% DCI-P3 color gamut rating, setting it apart from similar alternatives in the market. It also holds VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification, featuring a peak brightness of 1500 nits, ensuring an optimal display with high-quality output suitable for both casual and hardcore gamers. The monitor is equipped with Mini LED backlighting, divided into 576 distinct local dimming zones, adding a distinctive edge to its display quality within the market.
Regarding connectivity, the Cooler Master GP2711 is equipped with 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, and 1x USB Type-C supporting video output and 15W power delivery. Additionally, two USB 3.0 ports provide extra convenience. The monitor facilitates KVM switching, streamlining the process of accessing multiple devices on the display without the need for a separate dedicated KVM solution. Cooler Master has integrated a dedicated cooling solution with an innovative back design to ensure efficient heat dissipation from the monitor’s main chip.
The Cooler Master GP2711 is anticipated to be priced at USD 449 and is slated for release in Q1 2024. While it marks a noteworthy addition to Cooler Master’s product lineup, the real test lies in how well it competes with established options from manufacturers with a solid reputation.
