The Dell S2716DG is the company’s first gaming-grade monitor. It offers a Quad HD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440, a refresh rate of 144Hz and Nvidia’s second generation G-Sync technology which syncs the monitor with your GPU to minimize distortion and screen tearing.
Elsewhere, the display features a tilt, pivot, swivel and height-adjustable stand and connectivity options that include DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, four USB 3.0 ports, USB 3.0 upstream and line-out / headphone out.
While on the subject, Dell’s other new monitor – the Dell SE2716H – is the company’s first 27-incher with a curved display. While full specifications weren’t revealed, we do know it offers dual 9-watt speakers and a thin bezel that looks quite attractive. Dell’s language suggests this monitor is also suitable for gamers although until we see a complete list of specs, you’ll have to take Dell’s word for it.
Dell has priced the S2716DG at a staggering $799.99 while the curved variant sans G-Sync starts at $399.99. Availability for the former is set for October 20 while the latter will be made available starting September 15 via Dell’s website.
