Cooler Master GP27-FUS with 4K 160Hz Panel and Mini LED Backlight

Share this content

Cooler Master have this week announced a new addition to their monitor line-up, the GP27-FUS. This is a 27″ sized monitor with a 4K resolution, high 160Hz refresh rate and a Mini LED backlight for improved HDR experience. Its Mini LED backlight offers 576 local dimming zones and supports a 1200 cd/m2 peak brightness and a wide colour gamut with 97% DCI-P3 coverage.

Cooler Master GP27-FUS Specs

The screen is 27″ in size and based on an IPS-type panel from AU Optronics. It has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution, 1ms G2G response time (marked as TBC), 1000:1 contrast ratio, 600 cd/m2 brightness (SDR mode) and 178/178 viewing angles. It offers a high 160Hz refresh rate maximum, which is likely courtesy of a small overclock mode from a 144Hz native. This is supported by adaptive sync for VRR, and includes the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ certification.

There is a wide colour gamut from the backlight as well with 97% DCI-P3, 99% Adobe RGB and 83% BT.2020 (aka Rec.2020) quoted by the manufacturer.

For connectivity there are 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC) and 2x HDMI 2.1 for video (specifically listed as “48G” although support for features like HDMI-VRR and ALLM is not listed at this time). There are some additional data ports with USB type-C (90W power delivery, but DP Alt mode is not listed), and 2x USB ports.

The screen also includes 2x 2W basic speakers and some rear cover RGB lighting. The stand offers tilt, swivel and height adjustments or can be removed for VESa 100mm mounting if you’d rather.

HDR Capabilities

There is very much a focus on HDR performance here with the inclusion of a Mini LED backlight, providing 576 local dimming zones and being far beyond the wide range of basic edge lit displays on the market. This should help significantly reduce blooming and halos, and provide improved contrast ratios as well. Cooler Master quote 10,000:1 contrast ratio with local dimming in their spec. They also list a peak brightness of 1200 cd/m2 which is decent, and the screen also has the necessary wide colour gamut coverage discussed above. Oddly the spec lists an 8-bit colour depth, but we expect this to actually support a 10-bit colour depth input for relevant HDR content.
