HyperX surprised many at Gamescom the other day when they unveiled their first gaming monitor lineup, the HyperX Armada, so we visited the manufacturer’s booth to learn more with Senior Screen Manager Tiffany Rodriguez, demonstrating the features in the video showed below.
Beyond the usual details and specs, Rodriguez recalls that “they’re the very first gaming monitors to feature an ergonomic arm system,” admitting that the most interesting possibility is that “you can actually expand the system to to add multiple displays on one monitor arm”.
Regarding the two products available, she recommends the more compact and faster “for eSports users, it’s 240Hz refresh rate, a bit smaller screen size so you don’t have to turn your head” while the larger size and resolution variant including HDR more “for immersive games, MMO RPG or maybe just watch Netflix, movies, things like that”.
When asked about the chance of seeing even larger panels (let’s say 32 inches) in the future, Rodriguez says HyperX is completely open to the possibility “since Armada is meant to be an ecosystem”.
HyperX Armada 25: 24.5 inch IPS FHD panel, 240Hz, 1ms response. DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0.
HyperX Armada 27: 27-inch IPS QHD HDR 400 panel, 165Hz, 1ms response. DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0.
