Lenovo has made available a new curved Freesync gaming monitor. AMD helped publicise the new screen with a press release on its own site just ahead of the weekend. The Lenovo Y27f uses a 27-inch VA display panel with a full HD resolution. It sports a curvature of R1800 , which Lenovo describes as 'extreme' and is said to thus deliver a more immersive experience. The refresh range over which Freesync can vary with this monitor is from 48 to 144Hz.

SVP and chief architect of Radeon Technologies Group, Raja Koduri, talked up the new Lenovo monitor for immersive, high framerate, and ultra-smooth gaming. Koduri described the Y27f as "an excellent choice for both casual and competitive gamers." Executive Director of PC Visuals at Lenovo, Li Jun Su, helped explain the appeal of the Y27f to gamers, saying that thanks to its FreeSync technology "along with a fast 144 Hz refresh rate eliminates screen tearing, and minimizes display stutter, input lag and motion blur to display more natural movement".

Key features and benefits of the Lenovo Y27f curved Freesync gaming monitor are as follows:

  • 27-inch VA curved panel with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • R1800 extreme curvature for immersive viewing experience
  • AMD FreeSync technology

That's…. not a bad spec at all for the price.
If AMD's Vega cards are up there with whatever the current Nvidia high end is at the time… this might well be worth the leap.
Should be 2560x1440 at that price IMO :shocked2:
27" 1080p for Ā£300+? What's the point?
Vega would be overkill for this 1080p monitor. A 480x would be sufficient.
