HP introduced a new OMEN 25I game monitor, which is an improved version of the OMEN 25 model. The novelty differs from the predecessor with a better matrix, a higher screen update, as well as full support for the present 8-bit color and HDR technology.
At the base of 24.5-inch HP OMEN 25i uses an IPS matrix with a viewing angles of 178 degrees, a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels, the update frequency of 165 Hz and a response time of 1 ms in Overdrive mode. Typical display contrast is 1000: 1. The dynamic contrast rate is 12,000,000,000: 1. The value of the typical display brightness is 400 cd / m2, peak – 450 kD / m2. For the novelty, support for HDR 400, 90 percent coverage of DCI-P3 color space, as well as 99 percent SRGB space coverage. The manufacturer also claims HP OMEN 25I compatibility with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, as well as full support for AMD Free Sync Premium Pro adaptive extender technology.
The monitor stand allows you to change the angle of inclination (from -5 to 20 degrees). The rotary mechanism, as well as settings for changing the height of the monitor here, unfortunately, no. However, the display has support for VESA mounts (100 × 100), which allows you to test the monitor on the wall or use the corresponding stands more flexible in terms of settings.
The novelty equipment includes one HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, as well as one USB Type-B connector, two USB 3.2 Type-A and one headphone and microphone connector.
A curious feature of the HP OMEN 25I monitor is its software playing functions. For example, you can select the presence of a dynamic crosshair (sight), which automatic changes its color when changing the lighting – in dark scenes it becomes light, and in light-dark. An even more interesting is the Game Remaster Mode mode. It allows you to use various image enhancement filters in classic low-resolution games, increasing the overall quality of the picture.
The manufacturer rated the OMEN 25I game monitor at $ 350. Sales start in July.
