With the Legion Y32p-30, Lenovo presents a large-scale gaming monitor. 3,840 × 2,160 pixels are displayed down to 144 Hz on a 32-inch diagonal. Lenovo advertises a very short Moving Picture Response Time (MPRT) of 0.2 ms but does not disclose how this is achieved.

It has 4 levels of overdrive

With a narrow bezel on the sides and the top edge of the display, the IPS panel is said to provide a response time (GtG) of 2ms to 5ms, depending on the overdrive level. Backlight strobing would at least be an option for 0.2 ms MPRT, but this technical question could not be answered on-site. FreeSync Premium is supported.

10-bit color depth

The 31.5-inch IPS panel delivers a pixel density of 139 ppi and achieves a simulated 10-bit color depth (8-bit + FRC). 99 percent of the sRGB color space and 90 percent of the P3 color space must be covered. The display is factory calibrated to a color difference of Delta E < 2. Contrast (1,000:1) and brightness (max. 400 cd/m²) are typical values ​​for IPS monitors. With DisplayHDR 400, only the smallest of the VESA’s HDR certifications are offered. The local dimming extends over only 16 zones.
