Dell Unveils Two 27-inch Gaming Monitors, One With G-Sync… and One Without
Dell has announced the imminent arrival of two 27-inch monitors. The S2716DG is the company’s first ever monitor featuring Nvidia’s G-Sync technology.
The gaming monitor has a Quad HD resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and a refresh rate of 144Hz, designed to stay in sync with the frames being rendered by the Nvidia-branded video card it is connected to.
The 1ms quoted response time means that the monitor certainly packs a TN panel. Moreover, like other Dell monitors, the S2716DG can swivel, pivot and is height-adjustable. As for connectivity, the monitor offers one DispayPort 1.2, one HDMI 1.4 port, four USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The S2716DG will be available from October 20 for US $799, and with this price tag it will directly compete against Acer’s XB270HU.
Along with this, Dell has also unveiled another 27-inch model in its gaming monitor series, dubbed the SE2716H. Touted as being Dell’s first curved monitor, it is set to retail next month for $400.
Not much is revealed about the monitor, not even its definition. But what we know is that it won’t feature the G-Sync technology, which means a lower response time and refresh rates than that the S2716DG. Also, the monitor does feature two 9W speakers, and comes with a thin bezel.
The SE2716H will be available directly from Dell starting September 15.
