Dell has just unveiled its latest flagship UltraWide gaming monitor, the new Alienware AW3420DW which builds on the foundation of its predecessor from 2017 -- right down to its 3440x1440 resolution, 120Hz refresh, and G-Sync tech.

But there are many areas where Dell has made some improvements in the new Alienware AW3420DW, first of which is the out-of-this-world design on the monitor. It looks like the just-announced Alienware Aurora R9 gaming PCs, something that would look truly awesome combined.

It's not just the design but the technology side of things is something Dell isn't shying away from, with the new Alienware AW3420DW packing higher display brightness, and an IPS-based panel with new Nano Color technology.

Connectivity wise Dell provides 1 x DisplayPort 1.2 and 1 x HDMI 1.4 port, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack. It's not an Alienware gaming monitor without RGB, right? That's why the AW3420DW has AlienFX RGB lighting with 4 zones.

We have an IPS-based panel at 3440x1440, with 350 nits of brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, gaming-smooth 120Hz refresh rate with NVIDIA G-Sync, 1900R curvature, and 178-degree viewing angles. As for the new Nano Color technology, that comes from the 34-inch IPS panel covering 98% of the DCI-P3 and 134.5% of the sRGB color gamuts. Its predecessor only supported just 99% of the sRGB color gamut.

The new Alienware AW3420DW will cost $1499 when it launches on August 28.
