Xiaomi Plans to Launch a 240Hz 1080p Gaming Monitors at US$148

Crazy a 24.5-inch 1080p Gaming Monitor with a refresh rate of 240Hz for only USD $148!

Taken from Notebookcheck … An extraordinary new rumor about Xiaomi claims the Chinese OEM is preparing to launch new external gaming monitors offering 240 Hz and mighty 360 Hz refresh rates. According to one source, prices will start at 999 yuan (US$148), and it is likely Xiaomi’s 360 Hz monitor will be more affordable than the Asus ROG Swift 360 panel.

According to a report out of China, via XiaomiToday, the company has plans to release new 24.5-inch external gaming monitors that will offer customers the choice between a 240 Hz refresh rate and a 360 Hz refresh rate. While the same original source claims prices will start at 999 yuan (US$148), although that is cheap, it cannot be fairly compared directly to the US$699 needed to buy a ROG Swift 360 Hz PG259QN unit.

For starters, that low price will undoubtedly be for an entry-level 240 Hz model, and it is currently unknown what other differences there will be between SKUs. Also, this is a domestic market estimate, and it is well known how expensive Xiaomi products get once they leave China. However, it can be fairly presumed that Xiaomi’s 360 Hz gaming monitor would certainly challenge the Asus effort in regard to affordability.
