The ViewSonic XG240R is a relatively new monitor. For the average response rate, the ViewSonic XG240R scores 5 ms, which ensures effective synchronization with the high refresh rate. In terms of pixel density, the ViewSonic XG240R has an excellent density of 91 pixels-per-inch, resulting in sharper text and picture quality. The monitor has a VESA mount. For the extremely fast frame rates, the ViewSonic XG240R has a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz that allows smoother gameplay. The minimum response rate of ViewSonic XG240R is 1 ms, which is eliminates ghosting effects. The ViewSonic XG240R has the Display Port and this is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync.
