HyperX has just entered the gaming monitor market with the introduction of its new Armada 27 and Armada 25 gaming monitors, as well as a new monitor mount being revealed at Gamescom 2022.
The new HyperX Armada 27 is the better of the two new gaming monitors, with a 27-inch 2560 x 1440 (1440p) panel and 165Hz refresh rate. The company says its new HyperX Armada 27 has DisplayHDR 400 certification, and with the 165Hz refresh rate the 1ms response time will help it be super-smooth for gamers. It's alsomost bezel-less, with two of them side-by-side looking awesome on the new HyperX Armada display mount.
HyperX's new smaller Armada 25 rolls out with a 25-inch 1920 x 1080 (1080p) panel but faster 240Hz refresh rate, but I'm not personally a fan of the 1080p 240Hz displays, but HyperX has one if that's what you're after. The monitor mount is important, as HyperX is including the desk mount in the package... making their Armada 27 and Armada 25 gaming monitors are a great all-in-one package.

ASUS unveiled its new ROG Swift OLED gaming monitors at CES 2022 earlier this year, but now they're out and showing them off in the form of the ROG Swift OLED PG48UQ and PG42UQ gaming monitors.
The new ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG48UQ and PG42UQ gaming monitors have a new champion in their ranks: a beautiful new OLED panel. This means that you have all the benefits of OLED display technology: per pixel dimming, eye-melting contrast ratios that allow for true HDR gaming, and twitch-fast 0.1ms response time.
Not only that, but you've got the glorious native 4K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, but it wouldn't be a new ASUS ROG gaming monitor without overclocking. So yes, the new ROG Swift OLED PG48UQ and PG42UQ gaming monitors can be overclocked to 4K 138Hz, which should look absolutely gorgeous with its OLED panel, and be buttery smooth at 138Hz.
The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has announced the new ClearMR Compliance Test Specification (ClearMR), a new industry standard and logo program that sees gaming monitors meeting a new quality metric for grading motion blur.
In the future, new gaming monitors that have a VESA-certified ClearMR brand logo will know that their new purchase -- be it a display panel, TV, monitors, computers with embedded panels like all-in-ones, laptops, notebooks, and tablets -- will have a new Clear Motion Ratio (CMR) metric, which is defined in the ClearMR standard.
VESA has a clear numerical value based on the ratio of clear pixels to blurry pixels, something that will help consumers easily compare the amount of motion blur between VESA-certified ClearMR displays. VESA replaces the Motion Picture Response Time (MPRT) and other methods of blur characterization since the other metrics -- in the words of VESA -- "do not accurately reflect the true nature of blur".
LG Display has announced the very largest OLED panel yet, with the introduction of its new 97-inch OLED.EX panel shown off at K-Display 2022 in Seoul, South Korea recently.
Not only does the new gigantic 97-inch panel blow your eyeballs away, but LG is including 5.1 channel surround sound built into the TV. Yes, built into the actual OLED panel is LG Display using Film CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) technology, which uses a thin film exciter on the back of the panel, vibrating the display and creating audio without a built-in speaker. You don't even need a soundbar or surround sound system with the LG OLED.EX panel.
LG says that its new OLED.EX panel fixes the issues of lower peak brightness on OLED panels by converting hydrogen elements president in organic light-emitting elements into stable deuterium, which increases their stability and efficiency and lets them push out more light. But the gigantic 97-inch OLED.EX panel mixed with vibrating the screen to produce 5.1 channel sound with 'cinematic level of immersion' sounds pretty damn cool to me.
Samsung's new 55-inch Odyssey Ark 4K 165Hz gaming screen has been tested by some media outlets, where consumers will soon get the out-of-this-world display with a starting price of $3500.
The new 55-inch Odyssey Ark features a 55-inch 1000R curved screen using Quantum Mini-LED display technology, which Samsung says delivers next-generation depth to picture quality, enhanced by Dolby Atmos and Sound Dome technology that provides immersive surround sound from the 6 built-in speakers Samsung uses in the Odyssey Ark gaming screen.
Samsung's massive selling point here with the Odyssey Ark gaming screen is the impressive Cockpit Mode, which rotates the screen into portrait mode. Mix that in with Samsung's new model-exclusive Ark Dial, which lets you adjust the screen size and ratio to multiple content sources at once. This is fantastic for desktop PC use, whereas for someone like me, I'd use the hell out of that feature alone.
