A massive gaming monitor.
The unit’s built-in speakers are tuned with Waves MaxxAudio for accuracy and clarity, and thanks to the included VESA mount adapter, you can hang it on the wall if your desk is too small to accommodate a 55-inch monitor comfortably (I can’t imagine that most desks would, anyway). Buyers also receive a remote control, effectively transforming the gaming monitor into a television.
At this year’s CES, Dell displayed a prototype Alienware display that any gamer would be pleased to own. The specifications and general information for the 55-inch Alienware AW5520QF OLED gaming monitor were kept under wraps, but we now have more information to work with.
Before the eleventh annual Gamescom trade show, Dell and Alienware announced that the 120Hz, 4K (3,840 x 2,160 resolution) monitor will have a gray-to-gray response time of 0.5ms and 98.5% DCI-P3 color coverage. The OLED monster will also be equipped with the AlienFX lighting system and support AMD Radeon FreeSync technology for smooth image playback.
DisplayPort 1.2, three HDMI 2.0 ports, four USB ports, SPDIF audio out, and a headphone jack are provided for connectivity.
The 55-inch Alienware gaming monitor is scheduled to ship on September 30 at a steep price of $3,999.99. Before spending that kind of money, it would be prudent to investigate your options. If you are willing to forego a few features, you may be able to save a substantial amount of money on a comparable set.
The 2019 Gamescom takes place from August 20 to August 24 in Cologne, Germany.
