Models and Features
Armada monitors release includes two consumer-choice models: 25-inch and 27-inch. Both promise high resolutions and support for NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology, which seeks to reduce “dropped frames” when the frequency between the video card and the monitor is different.

It delivers Full HD resolution with an emphasis on displaying vibrant colors and details on 24.5-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS panels, intended to gain a competitive advantage during matches.
In turn, the Armada 27 It brings a clearer picture, with a higher resolution, 27-inch IPS QHD widescreen, 2560 x 1440 resolution and VESA HDRTM 400 display, which promises more clarity under different types of light. It also offers a response time of 1ms while the refresh rate is 165Hz.
