CES 2022: BenQ features gamer projectors and monitors up to 144 Hz

BenQ is yet another brand that introduced several new products during CES 2022. The company turned its attention to the gaming universe with the X3000i and TK700 projectors, as well as the EX3410R and EX3210U MOBIUZ monitors — the products offer high resolution and responsiveness, with options reaching refresh rates of up to 144 Hz.

The company has claimed that the X3000i projector is optimized for "open-world gaming" but has not given details that specify what this actually means. However, it is already known that the product is capable of displaying images in 4K and also supports HDR, in addition to covering 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It still has low-latency modes, support for stereo audio with object-based targeting, and 16ms response time — which isn't that impressive compared to monitors, but should still deliver a satisfying experience.

With a slightly larger construction, the TK700 model has an FPS mode that gives more clarity in the image, especially in the darker sections. It supports 4K resolution and 60Hz refresh rate with 16ms response time, plus 3200 lumens maximum brightness and 96% coverage of the Rec.709 color standard. The product also features speakers with an output power of 5 W, and two HDMI 2.0b ports for connecting notebooks, computers or similar devices.

The EX3410R is a 34-inch, 21:9-ratio ultrawide monitor with WQHD resolution (3,440 x 1440 pixels) and support for refresh rates up to 144 Hz with a response time of just 1 ms. The panel also features 1000R curvature, VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and support for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology when the product is connected with a compatible graphics card.

In terms of connectivity, the monitor has two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort 1.4, one USB-B upstream and two USB-A 3.0. The monitor also comes with remote control, and support for wall or flat surfaces with height, tilt and rotation adjustments. It is capable of saving preset image modes, with a Light Tuner mode that offers 20 color settings — sound can also be adjusted with FPS mode, cinema, racing game, sports and pop.

The EX3210U model, on the other hand, features a little more compact dimensions with 32 inches and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The panel features UHD resolution (3,840 x 1,260 pixels), with IPS technology and support for HDRi with VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification, plus 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 1.07 billion colors. Games are also featured on the monitor, with a 144Hz refresh rate, a response time of just 1ms and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro compatibility.

The product even has similar image adjustments with over 20 color modes, and wired connectivity options include four USB-A ports, one upscale USB-B port, two HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 ports. The EX3210U even has an Engage Private mode that reduces noise through artificial intelligence, for a cleaner experience in video or audio calls.

BenQ also took the opportunity to present the Screenbar and Screenbar Halo lamps for monitors. Both products feature clips that fit on top of virtually every screen available on the market, and the product serves to eliminate lighting contrasts between the panel and the surrounding environment, in addition to reducing glare effects.

Prices and availability

BenQ has not yet revealed when sales of each product will start, but several of them already have official pages on the brand's website, indicating that they will be available soon. The X3000i is the only one that hasn't earned a suggested retail price yet, while the TK700 will sell for $1,499 (about R$8,441 in direct conversion). The EX3410R monitor will cost 629 dollars (BRL 3,541), and the EX3210U will cost 1,099 dollars (BRL 6,188).
