A few weeks ago, the gaming world got to enjoy the first glimpse of a new generation of gaming monitors from Sony.
Now, we’ve got our first look at a brand new, very competitive line of gaming displays, from ASUS.
It’s called the ASUS P25E Gaming Monitor, and it features a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 2580 x 1440 resolution and a 2550 x 1440.
All of these displays are also designed to run at 120Hz, which is very much an evolution from the 27″ gaming displays we saw on the Dell Precision 2970.
The 2560 panel has a very nice, full-color, glossy look to it, while the 2580 and 2550 are slightly more subdued.
All these displays have been designed to be very competitively priced, with the 2560 offering a price tag of $1,699 and the 2550 and 2560 coming in at $1.299 and $1 (US) more, respectively.
There are a few differences between the two models, however, and we’ll get to those in a moment.
The specs on the P25 E and P25M models are pretty similar, but there are a couple of key differences.
The P25P has an IPS panel, whereas the P26 and P27 models both have a TN panel.
In fact, the P27M is more of a full-spectrum TN panel, while its predecessor, the 30E, has a TN display.
This means that you’ll be seeing more colors on these screens, which may make them a little less saturated.
They also have the same specs as the other models, including a 2ms response time, a 2xMSR refresh rate and a native resolution of 2560×1440 pixels.
The price difference is also very small, at $499 and $799.
That’s actually a lot less than the $799 price of the Dell Predator 2970, which had a TN screen.
If you’re interested in these displays, ASUS has some really nice reviews and even has an ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor that’s very similar to the P23E model.
The new models will also come in different color choices, with both 2560 and 2580 offering blue, red and gold options.
All the screens are listed on Amazon.
The model we’re most interested in is the P28E, which features a IPS panel.
We have a couple more impressions of the new displays, so check out our full review here.
