Dell has announced the S2719DGF, a 27-inch gaming monitor with a QHD resolution and overclocked refresh rate of 155Hz. It’s intended to complement Dell’s G series laptops and will be available in a Recon Blue metallic paint to match them.

The monitor was designed with maximum responsiveness in mind, so it’s equipped with a TN panel and a 1ms response time. In addition, it supports AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate technology, which should ensure a smooth and tear-free experience if you’ve got an AMD card.

That said, technologies like FreeSync and G-Sync don’t make as much of a difference when it comes to high refresh rate panels like this one, so you’ll do fine with an NVIDIA GPU as well.

The display can hit 350 nits of brightness and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio. A 155Hz refresh rate is achievable through overclocking, but the panel supports up to 144Hz natively.

In terms of display inputs, the monitor comes with one HDMI 1.4, one HDMI 2.0, and one DisplayPort 1.2 connector. It also features a 3-port USB 3.0 hub, a headphone jack, and an audio line-out port.

Separately, Dell also announced a range of monitors for both casual users and productivity mavens.

The Dell SE2719H comes with a 27-inch 1,920 x 1,080-pixel IPS panel for better color accuracy and viewing angles. It sits atop a compact, space-saving base and features slim bezels, which means its suitable for use in multi-monitor setups.

Then there’s the Dell P2419HC, a 24-inch monitor designed with a focus on work and productivity. It comes with a USB-C port that supports power, data, audio, and video inputs, so you don’t need to fumble with too many cables.

If you need more screen real estate to work with, you can also daisy chain up to two monitors with the DisplayPort 1.2 output. Furthermore, the ultra-thin bezels mean that they should go together pretty seamlessly. Finally, it comes with four USB downstream ports for hooking up your peripherals, including two on the left side for easier access.

Last up is the Dell UltraSharp U3219Q, a 31.5-inch 4K monitor for your workstation. For starters, it supports VESA’s DisplayHDR 400 standard and a peak brightness of 400 nits. The panel also covers up to 95 per cent of the DCI-P3 color space and has a Delta-E value of less than or equal to 2, according to Dell.

The supplied USB-C cable can deliver up to 90W of power, so you can get power, data, video, and audio all in one cable.

There are a bunch of features to facilitate multi-tasking as well, including Picture-In-Picture (PIP) and Picture-By-Picture (PBP) modes that let you view content from two different PCs at the same time. There’s even a built-in Keyboard, Video, and Mouse (KVM) feature that lets you switch between applications from two PCs and work on them with just one set of peripherals.

The monitor also comes with four USB ports for your peripherals and HDMI and DisplayPort inputs.

Here’s an overview of their prices (the price for the Dell SE2719H will be announced at a later date):

  • Dell S2719DGE (S$649)
  • Dell P2419HC (S$349)
  • Dell UltraSharp U3219Q (S$1,179)

The Dell S2719DGE and UltraSharp U3219Q are already available to buy now. However, the Dell P2419HC will only be available at the end of September.
