HyperX launches its first line of gaming monitors
HyperX has officially launched its first-ever gaming monitors, the Armada 25 and Armada 27. This pair of mid-range monitors from the HP-owned company is looking to compete in an age when it seems gaming monitors are having a moment.
The HyperX Armada 25 (opens in a new tab) is a 24.5-inch 1080p gaming monitor on an IPS panel that sells for $449. Its 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms GtG response time targets the competitive gamer who needs to be locked into shooters like Valorant or Call of Duty: Warzone at all times.
The Armada 27 (opens in a new tab) is a $500 27-inch 1440p display with 165Hz refresh rate giving PC users a wider gaming experience. The Armada 27 shares many of the same ergonomics and display features as its smaller 24-inch cousin. Additionally, the Armada 27 offers HDR400 support which the 25 does not.
These G-Sync-enabled Armadas come with desk mounts, which we don’t often see, and will help clean up valuable desk space. HyperX sells additional arm mounts (opens in a new tab) whether you want to set up a neat dual-monitor layout or just want a bit more flexibility.
HyperX’s pricing puts these two monitors right in the middle of a crowded field filled with Asus, Acers and Dells. Although you should note that Armada monitors don’t appear to have built-in speakers, you may need to invest in a decent set. (opens in a new tab) if you want to avoid wearing a helmet.
Interestingly, HyperX hasn’t announced a 4K version of the Armada and has opted for mainstream PC gaming resolutions. If you’re ready for a 4K gaming monitor, don’t worry; we have made a list of some of our favorites (opens in a new tab).
The HyperX Armada 25 and Armada 27, along with the additional mounts, will launch next month and will retail for $449 and $499, respectively.
