Alienware has launched a new 4K monitor to compete with its $1,000 Alienware X51 laptop and the $1.99 Dell XPS 15 laptop, which both come with 4K screens.
The company is using the Alienware 17K and Alienware 16K monitors as its benchmarks.
The Alienware monitor is the first 4K gaming monitor to hit the market, and it features a 2560 x 1440 panel.
Alienware says it is using its own proprietary “gaming engine” to run at 4K.
It is also using its patented 3D Engine, which runs at an ultra high resolution of 2560×1440.
The monitor supports up to 120Hz, but it uses an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card and has a refresh rate of 144Hz.
The Dell Xps 15 laptop uses the AlienWare 15K and 16K models, which offer a similar performance, but the 16K model has a resolution of 1920×1080.
Alienis new 4k gaming monitor will be available in December and can be purchased at $1 the Dell Xp 15, Alienware.com article The Alienis Alienware 13.5″ 4K laptop offers a refresh-rate of 120Hz and comes with a 2566 x 1440 resolution.
Alien is using a 3D engine, but there are no details on what that engine is.
It’s unclear whether the monitor is 4K or 1440p.
The laptop comes with an Intel Core i7-4710HQ processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.
It comes with Windows 10 Home.
Alien has also launched a 4K TV, the Alien TV 4K, for $1999.
It will have a 30″ screen, but Alien is offering the AlienTV 4K for $999 as well.
Alien’s $1 million price tag on the Alien 4K was also $1K less than the Alien XPS 17K.
We tested the Alien 13.2″ gaming monitor with its 2560 X 1440 panel at 1440p with an ASUS VG248QE monitor.
The panel was quite dim, but we could see pixels in the darkest areas of the screen.
There were also very few drops and smudges when using the monitor with a pair of headphones.
It looked pretty good, especially with the 2x HDMI out ports.
We didn’t notice any colour bleeding when playing Battlefield 4 at 4k resolution.
The image quality is also good.
At 1440p, the panel was bright and crisp, although there was some graininess.
We saw a small amount of black in darker areas of images.
At 1920×1200, the picture looked great, but this could be attributed to the pixel density.
There is also a little noise in the image when playing games, but no artefacts were visible.
The video output is also decent, with a frame rate of 60fps.
This is higher than the Intel Core M processors, but still not as high as the Nvidia GeForce 8500GTX 1080 graphics.
Alien did not offer us an overclocking guide, so we won’t be going over every possible option.
The Asus VG248 QE monitor has an IPS panel and supports up in the range of 120 to 120-140Hz.
Alien says it uses its proprietary 3D engines to run 4K games at 120Hz.
There are two models, the 13″ model with a 1920 x 1080 panel and the 16″ model that offers a 1920×1050 panel.
The 13″ panel is supported at 60Hz, while the 16 and 16.1″ models support 60Hz and 120Hz respectively.
We did not see any colour bleed, but if you use a pair or three of headphones, the image quality will be poor.
Alien also offers a USB-C 2.0 Type-C port for charging and charging your devices.
The USB-A port is a headphone jack, but is only compatible with HDMI 1.4 inputs and is not supported with Type-A inputs.
We also tested the Dell Alien Xp laptop with a 27″ 1920 x 1200 panel, and the Alien 16K 16.4″ gaming laptop with an Nvidia GTX 1070 GPU and an AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics card.
Both the laptops were powered by Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980 graphics, but only the AlienXp laptop offered 4K resolutions.
The XPS17K offers a resolution up to 2560 × 1440.
