HP has recently launched its all-new line of gaming monitors called the X-series. The X-series lineup contains seven gaming monitors that include monitors with flat and curved screens, a high refresh rate, and different sizes and resolutions. However, all the HP X-series monitors feature an IPS LCD panel with a high refresh rate of 165 Hz and a response time of 1ms. Additionally, all the seven monitors feature variable refresh rates, thanks to AMD FreeSync Premium technology. HP has already put up some models of the X-series on sale whereas the remaining models will go on sale soon.
