The gaming monitor category is highly competitive, with a huge variety of shapes and sizes to choose from to suit your individual needs. HyperX is the latest to enter the field with the Armada 25 and Armada 27 for eSports gamers, which could challenge the best gaming monitor list.
The Armada 25 kicks things off with a 24.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS panel with a 1ms response time and 240Hz refresh rate. The Armada 27 is slightly larger, with a 27-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) IPS panel with a 1ms response time and 165Hz refresh rate.
With a few exceptions (which we’ll get to later), the new monitors share specs. The Armada 25 and Armada 27 have 400 nits of brightness (the latter is VESA Display HDR 400 certified), are compatible with Nvidia G-Sync, feature a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and are equipped with 8-bit panels. . HyperX claims 99% sRGB coverage for the Armada 25, while the Armada 27 hits 95% in the DCI-P3 color space. In terms of connectivity, there is one DisplayPort 1.4 connection and two HDMI 2.0 ports. Neither monitor has speakers and both have displays with a matte finish.
Interestingly, HyperX sells both monitors in an all-in-one package that includes an Armada Single Gaming Mount for desk mounting. The mount he is VESA 75mm and 100mm compatible and supports monitors up to 32 inches and weighing up to 20 pounds. The mount can be attached with a C-clamp or grommet and the monitor connects to the arm with a quick release system. The Armada Single Gaming Mount is also available separately for $109.99. There’s also the $79.99 Armada Gaming Mount Addon, which allows you to mount up to four 25″ monitors or two 27″ monitors simultaneously on your desk.
According to HyperX, the Armada 25 and Armada 27 will be available next month for $449.99 and $499.99 respectively. The Armada Single Gaming Mount and Armada Gaming Mount Addon will also be available to him in September.
