HP Announces Seven New Gaming Monitors

The monitors start as low as $259

HP is increasing the offerings of its X monitor lineup, announcing seven new monitors, which include various display sizes, panel types, and resolutions.

HP revealed its seven new gaming-focused monitors on Tuesday, noting that it would start offering some of the new displays on that same day. Others won't be set to release until later in 2021. Of the seven announced monitors, the cheapest options will start at $259.99, according to The Verge. They include the X27c, which features a 27-inch 1080P curved VA display, and the X27, which is priced the same for a flat 1080P IPS display.

All of the new monitors will support 165Hz, which is becoming a standard number in gaming monitor refresh rates, and come in a variety of IPS or VA configurations. The X27q, which is also a 27-inch display, will include an IPS panel, a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440, and will ship for $339.

Next HP has the X32, which includes a 32-inch IPS panel, no curve, and is expected to retail for $389 when it ships later this month. Meanwhile, the X32c will offer a similarly sized display, but with a VA panel situated at 1920 x 1080 resolution.
