Gaming is a very large field, where manufacturers of various equipment and developers of software launch new products every day. And still, there is a huge demand. That’s why, every day, we see newer companies entering this field. Some of them have already succeeded in other niches, while others are newbies. In this regard, the original Kingston brand, HyperX, which was acquired by HP last year, has now entered the display field and launched the Armada 25/27 gaming monitor. Note, recently, many companies updated their gaming display lineups. This simply means these kinds of products are highly demanded.
The Armada 25 uses a 24.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS panel. But this is not the biggest highlight of the product. We are dealing with a gaming monitor, so, logically, the response time is as low as one millisecond. The display also supports a refresh rate of 240Hz. On the other hand, as the name implies, the Armada 27 features a 27-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) IPS panel with a 1ms response time and a 165Hz refresh rate.
Both monitors are rated at 400 nits of brightness. They are compatible with Nvidia G-Sync, and have a contrast ratio of 1,000:1. Apart from this, the Armada 25 has a color gamut of 99% sRGB, and the Armada 27 hits 95% DCI-P3. There are several ports on the back so that you can plug in various accessories. Both monitors feature one DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.0 ports. Compared to other products on the market, they fall behind in terms of connectivity.
This series of monitors use the Armada Gaming Mount bracket design to support monitors up to 32 inches / 20 pounds (about 9080 grams).
The Armada 25 and Armada 27 will start shipping next month, priced at $449.99 and $499.99, respectively.
