Dell’s new gaming monitors support variable refresh rate for consoles, not just PCs


Dell has announced four gaming monitors, three of which are curved, which will be released in the US between late May and late June. It doesn’t share pricing for them just yet, unfortunately, but the company says they all support AMD FreeSync Premium or Premium Pro, as well as variable refresh rate (VRR). VRR should make them just as good for consoles as the Xbox Series X and PS5 (although the latest console hasn’t received the promised VRR update yet). This feature limits screen tearing as the frame rate is adjusted due to hits or performance improvements.

To start big, the company has a new 34-inch ultra-wide curved gaming monitor (shown above, model S3422DWG) with an 1800R curve, which doesn’t envelop your peripheral vision as much as Samsung’s extra-curvy 1000R Odyssey G9 monitor . This model will be released first in China on May 7, then in North America on May 27, and finally on June 22 in the Asia-Pacific regions. It has a WQHD resolution (3440 x 1440), VA screen with a 144Hz refresh rate. Dell touts that it has DisplayHDR 400, although that’s not the specification you should be looking for to provide a clear, vibrant HDR picture. It supports 90 percent of the DCI-P3 color space.

This is the 32-inch curved screen that Dell will be releasing on June 22nd.

Dell also makes a 32-inch curved QHD gaming monitor (model S3222DGM) with a VA panel with a refresh rate of 165 Hz and a response time of 2 ms. It makes a 27-inch version (model S2722DGM) with the same specs, except it’s actually slightly more curved at 1500R than the 1800R 32-inch model. These will both be released in China on May 7, and availability will open worldwide on June 22.

Dell gaming monitor

Dell’s 24.5-inch monitor seems like a great choice, but we don’t know the price.

It may look like the last image above, but the fourth monitor to be announced today may appeal mostly to people with an Nvidia graphics card. It is a non-curved 24.5-inch FHD gaming monitor (model S2522HG) with an IPS panel with G-Sync compatibility in addition to FreeSync Premium. It has a refresh rate of 240 Hz and a response time of 1 ms. It will be released in China on May 7 and in other regions on May 27.

As usual, all new Dell monitors have stands that provide a full range of motion, including height, swivel, swivel and tilt adjustments.
