HP Omen 25i gaming monitor can make your old school PC or console game look much more appealing, also features always-visible Dynamic Crosshairs
HP recently announced new additions to its gaming lineup including the new Omen laptops and a new Victus by HP 16 laptop for more casual gamers. Alongside these new devices, the company also introduced the Omen 25i gaming monitor. The Omen 25i features a host of enhancements along with a hardware-enabled blue light reduction solution named HP Eye Ease with Eyesafe certification.
The Omen 25i sports a 24.5-inch FHD panel with a 165 Hz refresh rate and a moving picture response time (MPRT) of 1 ms and 1 ms with overdrive. With a brightness of 400 nits, the monitor is VESA DisplayHDR 400-certified and can cover 90% of the DCI-P3 color space. The panel also supports AMD FreeSync and is NVIDIA G-SYNC-compatible for tear-free visuals. Port selection includes 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A, 1x USB Type-B, and an audio-out jack.
While these specs are standard fare in most gaming monitors today, HP has a few tricks up its sleeves for differentiating the Omen 25i from the majority of the competition. The Omen 25i offers Dynamic Crosshairs that can be customized in 248 ways for optimum visibility, and they can automatically switch colors depending on the scene. There's also the Edge Precision feature for enhancing the edges and Shadow Vision to bring out details in darker areas of the scene without overexposing the brighter ones.
HP said that the Omen 25i is the world's first monitor with a built-in Game Remastered mode. Game Remastered applies added color saturation and adaptive sharpening filters to lower resolution old school PC and console games to make them look better. All these features can be accessed and controlled via the Omen Gaming Hub.
The HP Omen 25i gaming monitor will be available in July for a starting price of US$349.99.
