The screens have 5ms response times in Fast mode and 8ms normally, same as the 30-inch non-4K display. Both monitors have a variety of USB-C and USB-A ports, DisplayPort, and an HDMI 2.0 slot.
All three of the aforementioned monitors are daisy-chain friendly.
Expect a healthy dose of accessories from Dell this season. Here's the full lineup of PC and monitor add-ons you can use to improve your setup:
- Dell Dual Charge Dock (available May 12, starting at $369)
- Dell Thunderbolt Dock (available Q2, starting at $469)

The dual charge dock comes with the distinction of being capable of fueling your laptop while also charging Qi-enabled devices such as smartphones and earbuds. The Thunderbolt dock sets itself apart by packing two Thunderbolt 4 ports (among other ports and slots). The universal dock's claim to fame is having fast charging as well as the highest number of ports of the aforementioned options, sporting four USB-A ports, two USB-C ports, and four video ports, enabling it to connect to a maximum of four 4K displays.
The pen can go for 40 days between charges and sports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity to really capture the exact degree of force you're slamming that thing down with.
The soundbar has a dedicated Microsoft Teams button (it's certified for Teams as well), full duplex audio, LED lights, and features enhanced connectivity with specific Dell P/U series monitors. Its speaker frequency is 180Hz - 20KHz and connectivity method is USB-A.
The speakerphone is also Microsoft Teams certified and has a Teams button. It shares most of the features of the soundbar and advertises "best in class" sound quality and is labeled as being the most intelligent MS-Teams-certified speakerphone. It has a single omnidirectional mic, 120Hz-7KHz conference mode frequency range, and AI noise cancellation (the soundbar has this as well). It connects via USB-A but features a USB-C adapter.
