Alienware has been trying to carve out a spot in the gaming accessories world this year, and its latest effort is two wide new monitors. Both are 34-inches wide and have a 21:9 aspect ratio, and both include Nvidia’s G-Sync for smoother gameplay. Both of them also have ridiculous names: the higher-end model is the “A W 3 4 1 8 D W,” and the lower end model is the “A W 3 4 1 8 H W.” I’m kind of into the spacing.
The former of the two is slightly higher end. It’ll sell for $1,499, has a 3440 x 1440 display, and supports up to a 120Hz refresh rate and 4ms response time. The other model will sell for $1,199 and has a lower-resolution 2560 x 1080 display. In exchange, though, it has a refresh rate of 160Hz. Both monitors include built-in LEDs on the back that can be customized in in four different zones, so that your desk can glow the colors of your choice.
Alienware is launching the higher-resolution model today, while the other model is supposed to follow later this year.
