HP will end the summer and begin in the fall with a bunch of new gaming monitors, each with a 165 Hz refresh rate. This includes the flagship HP X34, which has an ultra-wide resolution of 3440 x 1440 and an attractive price tag of $460.
Ultrawides usually require a premium, especially if you want 1440p The same is true for resolution and speed. E.g, BenQ’s Mobiuz EX3415R, It has the same resolution and size as X34, but the current 144 Hz refresh rate is lower 1,000 USD.
We have seen ultra-wide screens in the HP X34 price range before, but they usually come from budget brands and have a lower refresh rate, such as 144 Hz Viotek GNV34DBE, The price is 450-500 US dollars. It’s nice to see the more well-known brand appearance makes the ultra-widescreen more affordable for gamers, while still providing speed, and hope to provide a high-quality panel.

We are happy to see three will In the past year and a half, due to the shortage of various PC components, IPS monitors have received intense attention. All VA panels announced today have a 1500R curve and claim that their contrast ratio is three times that of the new IPS display. We believe that contrast has the greatest impact on image quality; although, the IPS screen is slightly brighter. Their colors are also negligible, but we don’t think the difference will be obvious.
An HP spokesperson told techy’s points that the brand chose VA, like many curved panels, because they “helped to reduce white light from a perspective, while also producing deeper blacks and higher contrast. Produce an impressive color depth and further contribute to an immersive viewing experience.”
Not long ago, 144Hz was considered the upper layer of the game, only The best gaming monitor Movement at this speed. Today, 360 Hz is good enough. Although 144 Hz is still fast enough, it is closer to the middle ground in terms of speed, because the 165, 180, 240, and 280 Hz options all work.
“In the past, 144 Hz seemed to be the standard we thought of gaming monitors, and we are surpassing this standard with our entry series, and offering gamers seven choices of 165 Hz monitors,” said Eric Galyean lead of HP Gaming Monitor NPI, via The news materials said. “For gamers who haven’t changed their monitors for a while, this is definitely an upgrade.
Each display also has a 1ms overspeed or 1ms GTG low response time.
