The Armada 25 and Armada 27 are the first gaming monitors that HyperX has ever officially released. In a market where gaming displays appear to be having a moment, this pair of mid-range monitors from the HP-owned business seeks to compete.
The HyperX Armada 25 is a 24.5-inch 1080p gaming monitor on an IPS panel with a 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms GtG response time targeting the competitive gamer that needs to be locked in at all times.
The Armada 27 is a 27-inch 1440p display with a 165Hz refresh rate offering PC users a more wide-screened gaming experience. The Armada 27 shares many of the same desk ergonomics and display features as its smaller 24-inch cousin. In addition, the Armada 27 does offer HDR400 support which isn’t on the 25.
Both of these displays from HyperX are priced in the midst of a competitive sector that also includes Asus, Acer, and Dell products. Though it should be noted that the Armada monitors don’t appear to have built-in speakers, so if you want to avoid donning a headset, you may need to spend money on a respectable set.
