Out of any competitive genre, monitors are arguably the most important when it comes to fighting games. The pinpoint precision needed to land intricate combos, the ability to read an opponent’s movement, and more all contribute to a necessity for the lagless display around.

In an effort to maintain their legacy as the most prominent tournament in the community, Evolution recently announced a brand new partnership with BenQ, with the specific intention of using the company’s RL2460HT model for this year’s tournament.

While that seemingly random collection of letters and numbers may seem foreign, it’s likely you’ve heard of this monitor before. During development, BenQ worked with Evil Geniuses’ Justin Wong to create a special display mode specifically devoted to fighting games. With the assistance of one of our scene’s most legendary players and a reported 0.001-frame input lag, it’s likely these monitors will serve competitors well in Las Vegas.

Evo 2015 is scheduled for July 17-19. More details can be found through the event’s official website.
