Dell has announced its new displays aimed at gamers. The new 24-inch and 27-inch Gaming-series monitors feature a 1 ms response time, an up to 155 Hz refresh rate, as well as AMD’s FreeSync dynamic refresh rate technology.

The latest lineup of Dell Gaming displays includes two models: the 24-inch S2419HGF and the 27-inch S2719DGF. Both are based on TN panels that can hit 350 nits of brightness and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Meanwhile, since we are dealing with TN technology, the monitors have typical, somewhat narrow 160/170 degree viewing angles of the tech.

The smaller monitor has a 1920×1080 resolution and a 120 Hz native refresh rate, and can be overclocked to 144 Hz. Meanwhile, the larger one has a 2560×1440 resolution and supports a 144 Hz refresh rate that can be overclocked to 155 Hz. Both monitors support FreeSync technology with a minimum refresh rate of 40 Hz.

Both monitors have HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, a dual or triple-port USB 3.0 hub, a headphone input, a line-in, and so on. And the displays also feature adjustable stands that can regulate height, tilt, swivel, and pivot.

The new Dell Gaming monitors will be available starting from August 28, 2018. The S2419HGF will cost $320, whereas the S2719DGF will be priced at $550.

    They need to make a 4K 1ms Gaming monitor. At least 2560 × 1440 24" version. This refresh brings nothing new.

    LOL! 300+ dollars for a FHD TN panel. Guys are on crack.

    Seriously. 1080P TN Panel for $300. LOL

    Kids are missing the rest of the specs these days.. "1080P TN har har".

    Yes they are! Crazy fools if it had G-Sync then that'll answer for the cost but not even FreeSync 2?

    Yuck. 350 nits is pretty good though.

    TN and low resolution is the best possible compromise for actual video game people. These monitors likely show the most clear and un-delayed moving picture than any other non TN-panel at any price. TN takes care of the motion blur and high refresh takes care of the latency and tearing, plus this thing will last you for 15 years. Plenty of time to wait for the elusive OLED to finally materialize on the desktop.

    So you get bad angles, low contrast and color gamut, 16:9 and a bright black background - all of which are of little consequence to gaming. The biggest question for me is how elegant is the switching between 60 Hz desktop and 120+Hz gaming is handled.

    You should play in 16bit 4-2-0 chroma. Don't you have any pride for your eyes?

    I have never read anything so terrible. How could you say such a thing, Lolimaster?

    Why would they pick TN instead of IPS?
    And competitive gamers would turn the motion blur off. Haven't seen blurring on an IPS display.
    IPS is just as capable in terms of refresh rate.

    In terms of low contrast and color gamut not being a bad thing in gaming, I'd like what you're smoking, contrasts allow for quicker identification in regards to things standing out. Look at people upping Digital Vibrance to extremes.

    IPS just has that 2-4ms hit which again, is pretty much unnoticeable.
