Dell announced four new gaming monitors today; the Dell 25 Gaming Monitor, Dell 27 and 32 Curved Gaming Monitors, and the Dell 34 Curved Gaming Monitor. Each of the monitors supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR). All of the new monitors also come with three years of Premium Panel & Advance Exchange (opens in new tab), which allows people to get a replacement panel within one working day if a pixel is off on a monitor. While we have launch dates for each monitor (see below), pricing details are not available at this time.

Dell already makes some of the best PC gaming monitors, and these new models look to compete in that space. These monitors also work well with consoles, such as the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
