Just in time for CES, HP has a gorgeous-looking new monitor for us to feast our eyes on. The Omen X is the latest entry in HP's gamer-focused Omen hardware line, and it's also the company's first G-Sync-enabled display.
This 35" curved display sports a 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio with 3440x1440 resolution. The Omen X has a 1,800R curvature, similar to that of most curved displays on the market right now. A 100Hz refresh rate, in conjunction with Nvidia's G-Sync technology and a promised 4-ms response time, should ensure a gaming experience that's easy on the eyes and free of screen tearing. The panel itself is an LED-backlit AMVA+ panel.
The Omen X is nearly bezel-free around its sides and top, and has a headphone hook on the monitor stand. Head around to the back of the display and you'll find three USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI 1.4 connnector, and a DisplayPort 1.2 input. HP says you can pick up an Omen X for $1,300 when the display hits shelves in March.
