Dell has launched its first monitor featuring Nvidia’s G-Sync technology. The S2716DG is a 27-inch gaming monitor with a QHD display and a refresh rate of 144Hz, designed to stay in sync with the frames being rendered by the Nvidia-branded video card it is connected to.
The 1ms quoted response time means that the monitor likely features a TN panel, and like other Dell monitors, the S2716DG can swivel, pivot and is height-adjustable. In terms of connectivity, the monitor offers one DispayPort 1.2, one HDMI 1.4 port, four USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Aimed at the enthusiast segment, the S2716DG will be available from October 20 for $799, putting it in the same price bracket as Acer’s XB270HU.
Dell also announced another model in its gaming monitor series, dubbed the SE2716H. The monitor has the distinction of being Dell’s first curved monitor, and is set to retail next month for $400. What’s missing is the G-Sync technology, which means a lower response time and refresh rates that the S2716DG. The monitor does feature two 9W speakers, and comes with a thin bezel. You will be able to buy the SE2716H directly from Dell starting September 15.
