Gaming is about two things: Having fun, and having gear so technologically sophisticated that it makes all your less affluent friends feel shame every time they look at your setup and hear about how you crushed opponents in Overwatch thanks to your ridiculously advanced tech. And now, HP's OMEN 27u 4K Gaming Monitor is here to help you maintain technological supremacy throughout 2022.

Releasing sometime in the spring of 2022 for a starting price of $699, the new OMEN monitor is built for PC players as well as Xbox Series X-ers who want to take advantage of their console's maximum horsepower.

As to what kind of specs the monitor is sporting: Get ready for a 4K IPS display, 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response times, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support, built-in speakers (maybe they'll be good enough that you won't need the best soundbars), a ton of ports ranging from HDMI to USB-A, USB-C, and a DisplayPort, as well as twenty degrees of backward tilt. You can tilt the screen forward by five degrees as well.

Better yet, this monitor really does have gamers in mind, hence why it has tech built in to combat eye strain. The OMEN 27u 4K Gaming Monitor features HP Eye Ease with Eyesafe Certification, meaning you can put your blue light concerns to rest.
