Dell Reveals Alienware 34 Curved Monitor: WQHD IPS with 120Hz G-Sync
Dell this week has introduced its new top-of-the-line curved gaming display, the Alienware 34. The new AW3420DW monitor resembles its predecessor from 2017, with the same resolution and G-Sync functionality, however it builds upon that with a greater display brightness, a different design, and features an IPS panel with Nano Color technology.
The Alienware AW3420DW is the company’s latest flagship display that is based on an IPS panel featuring a 3440×1440 resolution, 350 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 0 Hz native refresh rate, a ‘fast’ GtG response time, a 1900R curvature, 178°/178° vertical/horizontal viewing angles, and NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology.
The key difference between the new Alienware 34 curved monitor model AW3420DW and its predecessor (AW3418DW) is a brand-new IPS panel boasting Dell's "Nano Color" technology, which allows the monitor to cover 98% of the DCI-P3 and 134.5% of the sRGB color gamuts. By contrast, the previous model only covered 99% of the sRGB gamut.
When it comes to connectivity, the display has one DisplayPort 1.2 input and one HDMI 1.4 port, a quad-port USB 3.0 hub (with one upstream port) as well as 3.5-mm audio connectors.
Being aimed at gamers, the Alienware AW3420DW has AlienFX RGB lighting with four zones. It also has an adjustable stand.
