Dell is reportedly launching a monitor for Mac and Windows.
The monitor is codenamed “The Skytrak,” and will reportedly be able to display 3D graphics at 60Hz or even higher.
The specs, if accurate, suggest a 60Hz refresh rate, which will also enable up to four monitors to be simultaneously displayed simultaneously on one computer.
This is significant for a number of reasons, including the fact that gaming monitors like the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Razer Hydra offer a much higher refresh rate than 1080p displays.
The Skytrak, on the other hand, will likely have a lower refresh rate of 30Hz, which makes it more useful for those who want to run their games at 60 frames per second.
It is also notable that Dell is using its own brand name for the monitor.
Dell is not a wholly owned subsidiary of Dell, but its parent company, Dell Inc. is, so the Skytrak is not going to be the first Dell monitor to use the Dell name.
The company has a long history of using its name in its hardware, so this is likely to be a big departure for the company.
In terms of features, the monitor will reportedly include a display and soundbar for gaming, as well as an Ethernet port and HDMI output.
A dedicated display for watching movies and video is also rumored to be included.
Dell did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The SkyTrack will be available in September, though the exact launch date is unclear.
