Cooler Master GP27QP Announced with 240Hz VA Panel and 1152-zone Mini LED Backlight

Share this content

Back in March we brought you some exclusive roadmap news from Cooler Master, including various new models they had planned for this year. They’ve now more formally announced some of those new models at Computex 2024. One of those is the GP27QP, a 27″ sized screen with a 2560 x 1440 resolution VA panel, 240Hz refresh rate and a 1152-zone Mini LED backlight.

In other specs the screen offers a 5ms G2G response time / 1ms MPRT spec, 2500:1 contrast ratio, 350 nits brightness (SDR), 178/178 viewing angles and an 8-bit+FRC colour depth. The colour space coverage spec is still TBD but it will offer a wide colour gamut. The screen’s 240Hz refresh rate is supported by adaptive-sync for variable refresh rates, with AMD ‘FreeSync’ certification pending still.

1152-zone Mini LED Backlight

One of the headline specs of this new screen is its 1152-zone Mini LED backlight which should offer high-end local dimming capabilities for HDR content, helping to reduce blooming and halos. The VA panel is also well suited to HDR as we’ve found in our previous review of their GP2711 display.

Connectivity and other features

For connectivity there are 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMO 2.1 (capabilities not listed) and 1x USB type-C (spec not listed) available. There’s also 3x USB data ports and an audio output. The screen also includes 2x 3W integrated speakers and PiP/PbP support.

Release date and pricing

No official word at this point on pricing and availability but information we were provided back in March suggested a likely Q3 release date, and an attractive $549 USD MSRP. More info when we get it. For more information on Cooler Master’s product range, see our round-up article here.
