Products for soft gamer and the pro gamers

The firm divides its monitors between soft gamer (the 18 million players in our country who mainly use the console and the mobile) and pro gamer (those who spend more than 25 hours a week playing and consuming Twitch content; they are about two million Spaniards, in which men represent 67%).
The UltraGear line of MX and MP series are focused on the former, but they all have a 1 millisecond response time and a minimum update rate of 120 hertz. From there, there is a pyramid of features, refresh rates, image quality, and of course, price, which goes like this (descending order):
