The Alienware AW3420DW is the company’s newest flagship and is based on an IPS panel with 3440×1440 pixel resolution, 350-nit brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 120Hz native refresh rate, “fast” GtG response time, 1900R curvature, 178°/178° vertical/horizontal viewing angles and NVIDIA G-Sync technology. This is a complete arsenal of features that will primarily take advantage of PC players, but also those who need a good multi-purpose monitor for the design.
The new AW3420DW resembles its predecessor from 2017 with the same resolution and G-Sync functionality, but has a higher screen brightness, a different design and features an IPS panel with nano color technology.
The main difference between the new Alienware 34 curved monitor model AW3420DW and its predecessor (AW3418DW) is a new IPS panel with Dell’s “Nano Color” technology that allows the monitor to cover 98% of the DCI-P3 color space and 134.5% of the sRGB. In contrast, the previous model only covered 99% of the sRGB range.
When it comes to connectivity, the display has a DisplayPort 1.2 input and HDMI 1.4 port, a USB 3.0 hub with four ports (with one input port), and 3.5mm audio ports. Alienware is for gamers and features AlienFX RGB lighting with four zones. It also has an adjustable bracket. The Alienware AW3420DW will be available on August 28 at the price of 1,499 USD.
