The Philips 279P2MRX with a 27" 4K Mini LED display and Thunderbolt 4 is launchedThe Philips 279P2MRX is the first desktop monitor with Thunderbolt 4 support. Today Philips announced the model's global launch. The monitor has already been showcased in China partially during the 3rd China International Import Expo (CIIE) in November 2020 and was teased during CES 2021.

The Philips 279P2MRX features an UltraClear IPS display panel with a 27-inch diagonal size and 4K resolution (3840 x 2160). It uses a Mini-LED backlight with 2304 local dimming zones providing more granular local dimming control for enhanced color reproduction and contrast. The monitor is VESA DisplayHD 1400 certified thanks to its brightness of 1000 nits and covers 100% of the Adobe RGB color space. Its color accuracy is Delta E<2.

The Philips 279P2MRX has two Thunderbolt 4 ports - one in and one out. This allows it to provide all benefits of such support for a total of 8K display resolution, including the ability to daisy-chain two 4K2K resolution monitors for those users who need it to maximize their productivity. This is just one aspect of Thunderbolt 4's high-bandwidth capabilities. It is a protocol that can dynamically adjust data and video bandwidth, depending on the device or application. Furthermore, it's future-proof in that it is now the basis of the USB4 specification. Thunderbolt 4 products will use the same underlying protocol specification to improve compatibility with USB-C based products. The monitor is also equipped with HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 ports, and four USB 3.2 ports.

Unfortunately, the announcement does not mention price and exact availability, which will most probably vary according to the market. Complete Philips 279P2MRX specifications will be added once we know more.
