Ultrawide monitors are increasingly common, and out at PAX West today, Alienware is announcing another pair into the mix. The AW3418DW is a 34-inch ultrawide monitor with a 3440 x 1440 resolution, an overclocked 120Hz refresh rate and a 4ms response time.
The curve and the fact there are no real bezels to speak of also makes it a great option for gamers seeking a multi-monitor setup, and with NVIDIA G-Sync technology in the panel your games will always be silky smooth and tear free.
When you look at the back of the monitor everything looks very clean, and that's in part thanks to the integrated cable management solution that hides all those untidy looking wires out of sight. It's also got a built in USB hub and headphone jack, as well as support for Alienware's AlienFX lighting system.
It even has a built in FPS counter. In the monitor. We like that.
All this doesn't come cheap, of course, and the AW3418DW should be available from August 30 for $1,499.
There is also a slightly less expensive option, the AW3418HW, which is also 34-inches, ultrawide and has NVIDIA G-Sync. The main differences are the resolution, down to 2560 x 1080, and the refresh rates which is up to 160Hz with a factory overclock.
This model will be available from the holiday 2017 season for $1,199.
