HyperX announces its new Armada gaming monitor lineup

Date:

HyperX expands to monitors with the announcement of two models designed for gamers who want a minimalist desktop setup. The most unique thing about these monitors is that they each have a desk mount and a versatile monitor arm, which allows you to adjust exactly how you want to arrange the screen on your desk. (Not to mention the lack of a traditional stand, so you won’t lose a lot of desk space.) You can orient the monitor horizontally or rotate it 90 degrees for a larger view.

The 25-inch 1080p Armada 25 and 27-inch QHD Armada 27 coming in September aren’t too far apart in price, costing $449 and $499 respectively. Both seem like a good deal, considering they include monitor arms, which are usually for about $100 or more are sold. Aside from size and resolution, there aren’t too many specification differences between the two either. Both have matte textured IPS panels with slim bezels and could reach 400 nits of peak brightness. They both have a 1ms response time and Nvidia G-Sync compatibility to handle adaptive synchronization with Nvidia GPUs. Their ports are also identical, consisting of one DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.0 ports. (HyperX includes HDMI and DisplayPort cables, which Sony couldn’t bring itself to for its $899 InZone M9.)

As for how they differ, the Armada 25 has a faster refresh rate of 240Hz compared to the 165Hz rate of the Armada 27. The Armada 27 features VESA Display HDR 400, meaning HyperX claims it has a peak of 400. nits for HDR content, which isn’t very bright (HyperX confirmed that the Armada 25 Display doesn’t support HDR 400). Both monitors claim to have decent color accuracy for the price, although each has a different color gamut. The Armada 25 claims to support 95 percent of the sRGB color gamut, while the Armada 27 claims to have 95 percent coverage of the DCI P3 gamut.

Each Armada monitor comes with a desk mount and arm, although these components can be purchased separately.

Specifically, HyperX makes the monitor mounts available separately, and they have a VESA mounting plate with four screws. The Armada Single Gaming Mount (as attached to the monitor in the photo above), which comes with each of the new monitors, costs only $109.99. If you already have a single mount but want to add more monitors to your setup, you’ll need the Armada Addon Gaming Mount, which costs $79.99. HyperX says up to four 25-inch monitors can be installed via these add-on components on a Single Gaming Mount or up to two 27-inch monitors.

It’s cool to see that HyperX’s debut gaming monitors aren’t just good value-wise, too. (Ironically, they’re much more interesting than what I’ve seen so far from parent company HP.) While panel technology may be nothing new, the inclusion of monitor arms and mounts with each model gives the company an advantage over most other companies. that make comparable monitors cannot match.
