Cooler Master have launched their newest flagship MiniLED Monitors, the Tempest GP27Q and Tempest GP27U. These new monitors are set to bring flagship level HDR performance at a competitive price point. 

Cooler Master’s previous 27″ Monitors are a GeekaWhat favourite. We even list the Cooler Master GM27 ARGB as one of the best mid-range range gaming monitors of 2022. Now, these new Tempest monitors are looking to keep up the good work.

The Tempest GP27U monitor comes with a 27” 4K (UHD) resolution panel, 160Hz refresh rate, and a 0.5ms response time. The Tempest GP27Q monitor comes with a 27” 2K (WQHD) resolution panel, 165Hz refresh rate and 0.5 ms response time as well.

For gaming and entertainment, both monitors have 576 local dimming zones for an outstanding level of local dimming performance and superior HDR visuals. With up to 1200 nits of peak brightness in HDR mode, the bright spots in visuals are truly bright, with darker areas remaining dark for levels of contrast previously not possible with traditional IPS panels. Combined with a Quantum Dot panel, the Tempest MiniLED series output wide-color gamut, covering up to 99% of Adobe RGB and 98% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, making it the perfect companion for content creation, gaming and more.

The Tempest GP27U and Tempest GP27Q have a MSRP of $699 and $999 respectively. 4K variant GP27U is scheduled to hit shelves in October, with the 2K variant GP27Q scheduled to be available one month later in November.
