Dell is looking to surpass Nvidia’s giant 4K gaming displays with an OLED panel on its latest Alienware monitor. Alienware’s newest high-end display is something else. Not only is this thing eye-meltingly gorgeous, Alienware says its new monitor is the first 55-inch OLED gaming monitor in the world.
Alienware’s does support FreeSync that reduces visual artifacts like screen tearing, but that doesn’t add to the cost like G-Sync Ultimate does, nor does its four USB ports instead of the LG’s three, and it replaces one of the four HDMI inputs with a DisplayPort connection. The color gamut is the same 98.5% or so DCI-P3. The Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Monitor includes a 55-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. This Alienware panel has super-thin bezels and includes a single DisplayPort 1.2 port, three HDMI 2.0 ports, four USB ports, a headphone jack, and SPDIF.audio line-out.
Dell/Alienware has overcome its previous hurdles, and based on what I’ve seen and the provided specifications, the wait was worth it. On top of delivering the vibrant colors and deep blacks OLED panels are known for, Alienware’s 4K 55-inch OLED monitor sports an impressive color gamut that covers 98.5 percent of the DCI-P3 color space, or around 1.07 billion colors, which is about the same as Apple’s $5,000 32-inch Pro Display XDR.
Dell is planning to make the Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Monitor available on September 30th starting at $3,999.99.
