HP has announced a new addition to the range in the form of the HP Omen X Curved Gaming Monitor which comes equipped with a 35″ Wide QHD display offering users a resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels.
HP has revealed the availability info of its Omen X curved gaming monitor that it had announced last year.
HP has dedicated their presence at CES 2017 to attract the gaming community. The company has recently revealed its gigantic 35-inch curved display code-named Omen X, a complement to their Omen X gaming computer which was launched back in 2016.
The Omen X features a 35-inch curved display with 3440 x 1440 QHD resolutions in a 21:9 aspect ratio. In addition to the 1800R curvature, the monitor also sports of very thin bezels on all sides that is helping maximize interest during gaming or even when viewing movies. The top and side bezels are of around 6.87mm, which means most of you will find it difficult even to notice the bezels clearly.
The monitor is also HP's first attempt at a screen with Nvidia G-Sync support for smoother gameplay, which provided you own a GeForce graphics card. With nearly no bezel girdling the display, the laptop's ultra-wide viewing experience results in flawless multi-monitor set-ups.
The highlighted gaming-oriented feature is support for NVIDIA's G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology. The panel have a 100 Hz native refresh rate and a response time of 4ms, which is decent for a gaming monitor. The panel itself is of the AMVA+ variety, so the contrast ratio will be significantly higher than monitors equipped with an IPS panel. HP claims 178-degree viewing angles, but since the monitor uses an AMVA+ panel, customers should not expect viewing angles as strong as IPS monitors, reports vr-zone.
The monitor also has an accessible DisplayPort, HDMI connector, and three integrated USB 3.0 hub downstream ports.
However, the stand is easily detachable, so users can opt for VESA mounting. It offers tilt (5-23 degrees) and height adjustments (5.12-inches).
HP will begin to put Omen X in the market on March 12 with a price tag of $1,299.
