During CES 2022, one of the most interesting novelties was precisely a spectacular display that, for the first time in history, would incorporate a QD-OLED type panel. Its about Alienware AW3423DW, a model of which not too many technical details were known at the time, but which now offers us more information. Of course, taking into account the technological novelty that it offered, we imagined that it would have a fairly high price, a price that would even exceed monitors OLEDbut the truth is that it will finally cost less than we expected.
Apparently, the recommended price for this monitor with a QD-OLED type panel in the United States will be below $1,300a figure that has pleasantly surprised us and that makes it more accessible to many people.
Technical characteristics of the new monitor with QD-OLED panel
Regarding the technical characteristics, these are the ones we know for now:
|panel technology||QD-OLED, 1800R curved, 21:9 aspect ratio|
|Resolution||3440 x 1440 pixels|
|HDR||DisplayHDR 400 True Black|
|Synchronization||NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultimate|
|Brightness||Up to 1,000 nits peak|
|connectivity||DisplayPort, 2x HDMI 2.0, 3x USB 3.2 Gen1, headphone out, Ethernet|
It is a large screen with a diagonal of 34-inch ultrawide aspect ratio (21:9) and a resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels on a panel with QD-OLED technology, curved with a radius of 1800R.
Thanks to this new panel of new generation, the manufacturer has promised improve color vibrancy, brightness, contrast, and even less chance of screen burn-in on OLED panels. In addition, in the face of this problem, a three-year guarantee is offered, which is a great novelty in the sector since before we could not enjoy this extensive guarantee.
This Alienware AW3423DW monitor is compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultimate and will be certified with DisplayHDR 400 True Black, which promises a brightness that will reach 400 nits in HDR content with peaks of 1,000 nits. Likewise, it will be able to cover 99.3% of the DCI-P3 color space and 149% of sRGB, with a response time of 0.1 meters GtG.
On the other hand, the refresh rate is at the same level as the most advanced models on the market, offering 175 Hz through DisplayPort. In case of using its two HDMI 2.0 ports, the refresh rate would be reduced to 100 Hz. Three USB 3.2 Gen1 ports, a headphone jack and an Ethernet port are also included.
When will the Alienware AW3423DW be available?
As far as availability is concerned, it is expected to go on sale in the United States at end of March 2022, so it would take a few more months to reach Europe. Even so, it is very likely that we will have it here before the end of the year.
The price, as we have already seen, will be 1,299 euros in the United States, but we still do not know what the final price that we will have in Europe for this QD-OLED monitor will be.
