CES 2022 was one of the best events to date and had some huge announcements in the world of TVs and gaming monitors set to release this year, but it's the new ultrawide entry from Alienware, the AW3423DW, which has us very excited indeed.

Some elements of this mysterious monitor are still yet to be revealed, but here's everything we know so far.


Alienware AW3423DW Release Date

So it looks like the Alienware AW3423DW ultra-wide gaming monitor will hit shelves in late March.

It's said to be hitting China earlier on March 2, but will then head to North America on March 29, followed by EMEA on April 5.

Alienware AW3423DW Price

We're yet to get a price on the Alienware monitor, however, we're expecting it to be well over $1000.

Alienware is a more premium brand that ticks off both design and performance boxes, so it makes sense that it could tip the scales.

How it'll stack up against the current best ultrawide gaming monitors will be interesting to see.

Size: 34 inches | Resolution: 3440 x 1440 | Panel: QD-OLED | Curve: 1800R | Refresh Rate: 175hz | Response Time: 1ms GTG Colour: 99.3% DCI-P3 | Brightness: 1000 nit | Features: Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate

Some of the standout specs and features here are the much more subtle 1800R curve, which should make this monitor great for both gaming and productivity.

It also packs a 175hz refresh rate which should make for some ultra-smooth gaming when combined with Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate and its true 1ms response time.

Interestingly, they've omitted the HDMI 2.1 ports on this model, which isn't a huge deal in our books as we think the majority of owners will use the DisplayPort connection over HDMI anyway.

Plus, at 1440p, HDMI 2.1 isn't essential anyway, we'll leave that to some of the larger 4K OLED displays on their way this year.

Of course, you can't miss the big draw for the monitor which is the QD-OLED panel. This should provide true blacks and incredible brightness (up to 1000 nits in this case).

This is said to be the same panel as the impressive Samsung Odyssey G8QNB packs, which has caught some attention for being the world's thinnest monitor at just 5.9mm!

It's got a 3-year warranty should you fear the old 'burn-in' scenario, which is comforting for anyone investing in an OLED display.

Check back in with soon for all the latest tech news, and don't forget to check out some of the other upcoming ultrawide monitors, like the fantastic Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 and the massive Samsung Odyssey Ark, both of which are set for release this year.
