Eve has today announced the Eve Spectrum, a crowd-sourced 27-inch gaming monitor with specs that we haven’t yet seen before.
The Spectrum is a 27-inch IPS monitor running at 2560×1440 at 240 Hz. It’s also running on an IPS panel, the first 1440p 240 Hz to do so. This is where the world-first part comes in — unlike other earlier incarnations which are TN.
According to NotebookCheck, the Eve Spectrum will be coming in three different variants. The first, one as stated above, the second has the same resolution at 144 Hz, and the third, a 4K resolution at 144 Hz.
Every one of the Spectrum variants will launch with IPS panels and 1ms response times, and all three will have compatibility with G-SYNC and FreeSync. The monitors are HDR400 and HDR600 certified (depending on which you go for) and will have special launch prices for the first 500 units sold.
On the order page of the official site, the QHD 144Hz is going for $359, the QHD 240HZ $499 and the 4K 144Hz at $599. None of the monitors will ship with a stand, which is sold separately for $99. Eve made this decision based off of fan feedback, as nearly half of their community didn’t want a stand.
