The Dell Alienware AW3423DW is a 34-inch 3440 x 1440 OLED screen with a 175 Hz most extreme revive rate. This is whenever we’ve first seen an OLED board with such a specs, and whenever OLED first has reached such a revive rate in a sensible screen size. It utilizes one of Samsung’s most recent QD-OLED boards, which are different to different boards we’ve seen previously, with a commitment of enhancements in brilliance, proficiency and consume in.
On a very basic level, the AW3423DW utilizes similar sort of self-lit natural LED pixels as we’ve seen from other OLED shows, significance there is no backdrop illumination required. As you can expect, the AW3423DW is completely outfitted towards gaming, and all the more explicitly HDR gaming. It packs Nvidia’s G-Sync Ultimate equipment module, however to be clear this screen works with all GPUs including Amd’s, in any event, for versatile sync.
It likewise shows up affirmed for VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400, which dissimilar to the normal DisplayHDR 400 confirmation, is unfinished garbage. Utilizing OLED implies we get genuine HDR equipment, and Dell is guaranteeing up to 1000 nits of pinnacle splendor with a 0.1ms dark to dim reaction time. It’s likewise a bended screen with a 1800R ebb and flow. That is standard for ultrawide screens and it feels perfectly for gaming.
In spite of having the equipment to obliterate substantially more costly items and is one of the main gaming-reasonable OLED screens you can purchase, the Alienware AW3423DW shows up with a cutthroat price tag of $1,300. To the extent that top of the line shows go, this is fundamentally more affordable than other genuine HDR items like the Asus ROG PG32UQX, which actually costs a robust $3,000.
The general form nature of this Alienware screen is very great. It’s a seriously enormous showcase, as far as the screen size, yet its general lodging. It’s a fat screen in the center to house all the related G-Sync equipment, in addition to it’s bended, and it accompanies a huge, solid stand. While a ton of the external materials are plastic, a very much constructed item feels premium with tight creases and tender loving care.
The front of the screen is to a great extent dark, so dark bezels and dark plastic, however the back is generally white. It’s sort of this surprising two-tone arrangement, yet it works. It some way or another feels both gamer to a little degree yet additionally perfect and moderate. There’s additionally a RGB LED lighting arrangement around the focal stand support point which gets very splendid, as well as an enlightened outsider logo.
No bad things to say with respect to the stand gathering which is solid, upholds level change, and can likewise be shifted and turned. You can likewise trade out the represent a VESA mounting connector on the off chance that you need to.
There are great and awful angles to the port choice. We get one DisplayPort, two HDMI and a four port USB center incorporating two USB ports in a simple to get to area on the base edge of the screen. The DisplayPort 1.4 port is equipped for up to 175 Hz revive rates which is great, yet you can’t utilize 10-digit and 175Hz simultaneously, you’re restricted to 8-bit, while for 10-cycle you’ll have to drop the invigorate rate to 144Hz. We don’t track down this a colossal issue as the distinction between evident 10-bit and 8-digit + vacillating (utilized in the HDR mode) is immaterial.
Nonetheless, the really major problem is the absence of HDMI 2.1. Nvidia has not refreshed their G-Sync module to help HDMI 2.1 yet, which is the reason it’s excluded. HDMI 2.0 limits the presentation to only 100 Hz which is fairly regrettable for a 175 Hz screen. That is not as large of an arrangement on a 4K showcase you should use with a game control center – – the present control center don’t uphold 3440 x 1440 well overall – – yet at the same time an unfortunate oversight on a very good quality item.
Concerning the OSD, it’s not difficult to explore thanks to a directional switch, and incorporates all the standard tone and game elements. One thing you don’t arrive are cheat line of sight (they’d probably consume in on an OLED screen), however there are dark supporting modes, etc.
