The maximum brightness is 300cd/m² and although this is too low for significant HDR reproduction, it has the product does support hdr10 according to ViewSonic.The monitor does not qualify for a DisplayHDR rating.

The screen has a contrast ratio of 3000:1 and the refresh rate is 144Hz. FreeSync support works with AMD Radeon cards from the 400 series. As far as connections are concerned, two HDMI 2.0 inputs and displayport 1.4 are present.

The 1.4 version of displayport was announced in early 2016, but not yet on many monitors.

Furthermore, a USB hub and a duo of 6W speakers are present and the screen is 80 mm adjustable in height. According to ComputerBase, the price is 659.90 euros.
