Dell has released a 24-inch gaming monitor called the S2417DG. It describes the new gaming monitor as providing "premium visuals fit for a champion," and it does indeed offer some tempting technology. The S2417DG offers a WQHD resolution (2560 × 1440 pixels), with a variable refresh rate from 30Hz - 165Hz with Nvidia G-SYNC, plus a nippy 1 ms grey-to-grey response time.
Dell says that the Nvidia G-SYNC support, combined with the wide refresh rate support, will help you enjoy games without distorted graphics. "No screen tearing, no stuttering and no ghost images means there is nothing to get in the way of your performance," gushes the PC maker. Add to that the appeal of sharp high pixel density imagery provided by the display, and a rapid 1-millisecond panel response time. Furthermore, the S2417DG's ultrathin bezel lends itself to multi-monitor setups. A nice bonus is that Nvidia 3D Vision 3D glasses are supported.
As a gaming monitor, Dell has built in various gaming profiles to let users quickly set 'optimal' settings for the likes of RPG, FPS or RTS games. Other less-gaming centric features such as flicker-free display, DisplayPort 1.2a and HDMI 1.4 inputs, along with 4x USB 3.0 ports, plus a Tilt, pivot, swivel stand are all positives. The screen offers a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 350cd/m2 brightness, 170/160 viewing angles, 16.7 million colour depth, and a standard sRGB gamut.
At the time of writing the Dell S2417DG product page lacks an ordering facility and pricing info. However, with regard to pricing, TFT Central reports it will be marketed at US$570. It's interesting to compare this monitor with the budget priced FHD 27-inch Dell SE2717H IPS Freesync monitor we wrote about recently.
