The epitome of QHD 144Hz gaming, the 27” EX2780Q has everything you need to enjoy Doom Eternal at an unlocked framerate and in vivid color. And being Doom, there’s going to be a lot of color. Especially hell spawn red. That’s OK, as QHD on a 27” screen lands in the goldilocks region of pixel density so you’ll get just the right dosage of despair, or delight.
With the EX2780Q even mid-range gaming PCs have a screen that supports an essentially free-flow refresh rate. Up to 144Hz should be more than enough to get a bead on even the sneakiest evil intruder to ever step out of a Martian portal, and the EX2780Q’s lovely 10-bit IPS panel captures every wicked detail with precision.
Doom’s id Tech engine continues to improve and remains one of the most scalable designs in modern gaming. The engine works wonders on everything from a Nintendo Switch to a cybernetically-enhanced, ghoulish mega PC, so you can choose whether you prefer unrestrained speed for twitchy reflex-heavy gameplay, or a more toned-down pace with an emphasis on graphical beauty.
Remember, the EX2780Q has AMD FreeSync to ensure variable refresh rate and no v-sync worries. If you want to enjoy Mick Gordon’s guitar licks (and the anguished screams of the damned) then the sound system on this monitor is nothing to cackle at: dual 2W speakers plus a 5W subwoofer. That’s genuine 2.1 channel mayhem with no external speaker hassles. There’s even a remote so your hands never need to leave the keyboard/mouse or controller for more than a second in case you need to adjust the way hell looks or sounds. Because adjusting hell is what Doom’s always been about.
