Large 32in gaming monitors appear to be all the rage, and Dell wants in on the action. The PC giant is today introducing a pair of suitably sized monitors boasting high refresh rates and support for adaptive synchronisation via AMD FreeSync Premium Pro.
Starting with the big boy G3223Q, this 32in 4K UHD monitor packs an IPS panel capable of a 144Hz refresh rate, or 120Hz if paired to a modern games console. Dell advertises 95 per cent DCI-P3 colour coverage, a 1000:1 contrast with a 1ms GtG response time, plus Delta-E colour accuracy of less than two in sRGB mode.
FreeSync/VRR are at hand to eliminate any tearing caused by lack of FPS or otherwise and 600-nit peak brightness is enough to achieve DisplayHDR 600 certification. A slight improvement over common HDR400 panels, though Dell’s implementation is edge-lit, so don’t expect tremendous HDR performance.
For connectivity we have the choice of two HDMI 2.1, one DisplayPort 1.4, 3.5mm audio out, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 downstream and one upstream.
Next, we have the G3223D, this time limited to a QHD resolution in a 31.5in size but clocking in at a faster 165Hz. Also using an IPS panel, it shares a lot in common with the 4K model, including the same 95 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut, 1ms GtG response time and 1000:1 contrast ratio.
Only DisplayHDR 400 is present this time, again edge-lit, giving a typical brightness of 400 nits. Not to forget the mandatory FreeSync/VRR.
I/O is covered by two HDMI 2.0, one DisplayPort 1.4, a USB-C upstream supporting video input using DP alt mode, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 downstream plus another with charging capability.
Both panels are backed by a three-year warranty and come bundled with a VESA-compliant stand offering height (100mm), tilt (-5° to +21°) and swivel (-30° to +30°) adjustment.
The QHD G3223D arrives first on March 18 priced at $720, while the 4K UHD G3223Q lands March 30 at a cost of $1,100.
