Dell is at Cologne Germany, attending this year's gaming trade fair dubbed <em>Gamescom 2019<\/em>. While it's the <a href="https:\/\/happygamer.com\/dell-reveals-the-price-and-release-date-for-the-alienware-aw5520qf-55-inch-oled-gaming-monitor-at-gamescom-2019-23228\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Alienware AW5520QF<\/a> 55-inch OLED gaming monitor that stole the show, Dell also released another gaming monitor, the <em>Alienware AW3420DW<\/em> that boasts both the looks and excellent gaming performance. It also features an IPS panel with the new Nano Color Technology.\r\n\r\nThe new <em>AlienWare 34<\/em> isn't so new. It is the successor of the <em>AW3418DW <\/em>released in 2017, but two years down the line, Dell must have several innovations onboard their latest IPS gaming monitor.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/a_san_life\/status\/1164128920687411200\r\n\r\nThe new Dell <em>AW3420DW<\/em> sports the same IPS (In-Plane Switching) 1900R curvature panel just like the predecessor, the AW3418DW. With IPS, you are guaranteed excellent color reproduction and enhanced contrast ratios compared to TN and VA panels. The AlienWare 34's <em>Nano Color Technology<\/em> panel covers 98% of the DCI-P3 and 134.5% of the sRGB color gamuts.\r\n\r\nThe display has an impressive resolution, <em>3440x1440p<\/em> to be precise. The <em>120Hz refresh rate<\/em> and <em>NVIDIA G-Sync<\/em> compatibility enable the monitor to push as many frames per second as it possibly can thus reducing screen tearing, and minimizing display stutter. It's still not clear whether the <em>AW3420DW<\/em> will improve on response time \u2013 the predecessor has a 4ms response time.\r\n\r\nAs far as the aesthetics are concerned, AlienWare retained the iconic design, with thin bezels and a black on silver finish. RGB lighting is part and parcel of gaming hardware and peripherals. The <em>Alienware AW3420DW<\/em>\u00a0features <em>AlienFX RGB lighting<\/em> to customize your ambiance with the four available zones.\r\n\r\nWhen it comes to connectivity, the option s are unlimited. Dell designed this monitor with one <em>DisplayPort 1.2<\/em>, buy the 1.4 variants would do it justice. Also, for display input, there is one <em>HDMI 1.4 port<\/em>. The <em>Alienware AW3420DW<\/em> also features a <em>quad-port USB 3.0 hub<\/em> including one upstream port and <em>3.5-mm audio connectors<\/em>. No inbuilt speakers come with this monitor.\r\n\r\nThe <em>AlienWare AW3420DW<\/em> has a confirmed release date. It will be available at all Dell and AlienWare retailers as from August 28. The AW3420DW will set you back $1500 and comes with a two-year warranty. As you may be aware, AlienWare also released two other gaming monitors; the <em>AW5520QF and AW2720HF.<\/em>\r\n\r\nThe former is based on a 55-inch OLED panel capable of <em>4K gaming at 120Hz.<\/em> It will cost you a cool $4000 when it finally arrives as from September 30. On the other hand, the AW2720HF is based on a 27-inch IPS LCD panel capable of <em>1080p gaming at 240Hz<\/em>. It will be available as from September 17 at $600 only.
