EIZO has announced earlier this week a very limited-run monitor that should pique interest of many hardware enthusiasts. The Foris Nova’s shell is made completely out of aluminum and uses a rather small 21″ 4K OLED display with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, a maximum brightness of 330 nits and 1.07 billion colors.
While a 4K, 21 inch monitor might not be what most gamers are looking for, the ultra-fast 0.04ms (black-white-black) response time should be solid for a 4K 60Hz gaming experience.
The monitor features HDR 10 certification and, unfortunately, only has dual HDMI ports, though they support Deep Color, HDCP 2.2, and 1.4 copy protection. It covers 80% of the BT.2020 spec for color gamut. For sound, it uses dual 1W speakers, a single headphone jack and line-out mini jack. Rounding things off, it supports VESA mounting.
The bad news is EIZO plans on only releasing 500 of these. It will be launching in the United States, Europe, China and Japan on November 1st, though EIZO has asked consumers to contact them directly for all orders and pricing, which points to this being incredibly expensive.
