Gaming Monitor List (120Hz, 144Hz, 160Hz, 165Hz, 180Hz, 200Hz, and 240Hz)

Gaming Monitor List (March 2017)
Looking for a high refresh rate gaming monitor?

You’re in luck.

This is the ultimate list. It has the technical specs of all currently available 120Hz-plus monitors for March 2016 and soon-to-be-released ones also. Listed below are all the 120Hz, 144Hz, 160Hz, 165Hz, 180Hz, 200Hz, and 240Hz monitors in the world.

Since their introduction, 120Hz monitors have been slowly discontinued with 144Hz monitors now being the most popular ones out there and there are even some out-of-the-box overclockable monitors. Many of those listed have an adaptive sync technology integrated into them – either NVIDIA G-Sync monitors or AMD FreeSync monitors – to deal with screen tearing and stuttering.

Most usually are 1080p monitors or 1440p monitors while a few widescreen 21:9 exist monitors that carry a 2560 x 1080 resolution. There are numerous panel types listed including TN, IPS, VA and OLED.

In addition, some manufacturers such as Acer are beginning to include eye tracking technology like that of Tobii.

120Hz monitor list

The majority of 120Hz monitors have been discontinued and 144Hz monitors are becoming the new standard in the market. The EIZO FG2421-BK is marketed as being capable of 240Hz, but this is a marketing gimmick as it doesn’t actually function at 240Hz and instead uses a 120Hz input signal.

144Hz monitor list

Most 144Hz monitors currently on the market are sold in either 24 or 27 inches and in the 1080p (Full HD) and 1440p (Wide Quad HD) resolutions. When checking out a monitor be sure you know its pixel density for the best image quality.

The majority are equipped with IPS or TN display panels with the TN panels being the most popular and affordable. Depending on your priorities one of the two will be more appropriate for you. There’s also a number of VA panels, but these are far less common.

Some monitors have adaptive sync technology such as NVIDIA’s G-Sync or AMD’s FreeSync included in them and which you prefer will affect your budget. This technology prevents screen tearing and stuttering by synchronizing the monitor’s refresh rate with your graphics card’s frame rate.

160Hz monitor list

The AOC C3583FQ is among the largest size high refresh rate monitors to become available. It is unique in that it falls short just 5Hz of being a 165Hz monitor and it is the only 160Hz monitor out there.

    Why isn’t the AOC G2460PF here?

    • 120hzmonitors

      The AOC G2460PF and AOC G2770PF have been added to the list. Thanks for the suggestion!

  • Mike

    I have this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4JH2Z36445

    Despite reviews of dead pixels and such I have had no issues with mine.

  • JussKiddin

    If you’re listing “to be released” monitors, might I recommend the Acer XB271 HK?
    4k @ 75 hz with G-Sync with an IPS panel.

  • 411_RED

    You list the EIZO FG2421-BK as supporting G-Sync, I’m pretty sure that isn’t true.

  • GeoffBRO

    missed a 144hz monitor – can be overclocked too, seem to reach 180hz, apparently can overclock higher, will keep working on it.

    Seems like you’ve missed Acer Predator XB241H that beat ASUS to 180Hz (has been out for couple of months or so) and is likely based on the same panel that’s going into the ASUS one. I would have went for that one if I didn’t knew that ASUS was also coming up with theirs as seen first time on CES in January (back then was just being mentioned as “possibly going to be locked into 165Hz” and now it is 180Hz due to Acer’s XB241H). Anyway the foot on the Acer is ugly as ****, that’s one of the reasons I wanted to wait for ASUS as I like the ASUS ROG Swift design best of all monitors. EDIT: The ASUS ROG PG258Q 240Hz is 24.5″ to be exact.
