Dell had taken the covers off its Alienware 55-inch 4K OLED display. Designed for serious gamers who want to set up a gaming loungeroom it boasts a 120 Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync helping to set it apart from OLED TVs on the market.

Dell has unveiled what could be the ultimate gaming monitor for serious loungeroom gaming. The new Alienware 55 (AW5520QF) sports, as you might guess, a 55-inch 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 pixel state-of-the-art OLED panel. It is among the first OLED panels on the market with a 120 Hz refresh rate and is the only one to date featuring AMD’s FreeSync tech to minimize graphic distortions, tearing and other artefacts. It’s gray-to-gray response time is also just 0.5 ms.

Its color accuracy is right up there too with 98.5 percent coverage of the professional DCI-P3 color spectrum although it doesn’t quite manage to qualify for an HDR rating reaching peak brightness at 400 nits. Gamers can also customize their gaming experience with the its built-in AlienFX lighting system, gaming-centric onscreen display while it also packs in dual Waves MaxxAudio rated at 14 W each. A supplied VESA adapter means that it can also be wall mounted if you so choose.

Ports include a quad-port USB 3.1 Gen 1 hub, 1 x DisplayPort 1.4 and 4 x HDMI 2.0 ports. It also supports audio over S/PDIF or even via a 3.5mm audio jack. A remote control is also bundled.

The Alienware 55 OLED gaming monitor will go on sale 30 September for US$4,000.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
