What you need to know

  • The Omen X 25 is aimed at giving gamers fast, responsive framerates.

  • The G-Sync version is set to launch in September for $550, while the adaptive sync model lands in June for $450.

HP is rounding out its bombardment of gaming announcements today with a new gaming monitor, dubbed the Omen X 25. Coming in at 24.5-inches, the display is all about making your games run as smooth as possible, thanks to a speedy refresh rate and G-Sync.

The highlight of the Omen X 25 is its 240Hz refresh rate, ensuring it can handle incoming frames as fast as your PC can spit them out. That's backed up by G-Sync to make sure you don't encounter any screen tearing if you're using an NVIDIA graphics card. For the AMD crowd, there's also a variant of the Omen X 25 with adaptive sync to achieve the same steady framerates.

The display's resolution comes in at 1080p and the TN panel is surrounded by thin bezels on three sides. HP has also thrown in an ambient lighting effect that can adjust based on what you're seeing on the screen, which should hopefully cut down on eye fatigue.

As for ports, you're looking at a single HDMI 1.4 port, along with one DisplayPort 1.2, two USB 3.0 ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack. There's also a headphone hook on the back of the stand, along with routing for cable management.

The Omen X 25 with NVIDIA G-Sync is expected to launch on September 1 for $550. The adaptive sync model, dubbed the Omen X 25f, is expected to launch a little earlier on June 23 for $450.
