The newly-announced HP OMEN 27i Monitor drops today — May 4 — a new 27-inch display geared for gaming, clocking in with high refresh rates and adaptive sync. With a 1440p resolution and 165Hz refresh rate, the device accompanies a broader refresh of the OMEN brand identity, launching alongside a similarly styled family of OMEN PC desktops.

The OMEN 27i leverages LG's new 1440p 165Hz panel, providing 1ms response times and DCI-P3 98% color reproduction with its Nano IPS technology. It's also positioned under the G-Sync Compatible certification, supporting variable refresh rate across GPUs favoring NVIDIA G-Sync or AMD FreeSync.

The rear features a new rhombus-shaped design, mimicking the new OMEN logo, and lined with ambient lighting casting within the nearby vicinity. The extruding backside also serves DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, and three USB 3.0 ports. The full OMEN 27i specifications follow, below:
