Alienware targets the loungeroom with 55-inch, 120Hz, 4K OLED gaming monitor
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.
