Alienware announce 360hz gaming monitor
Dell has introduced a new gaming monitor, bringing a gaming monitor called the Alienware 25 AW2521H to the Alienware series, not to be confused with the AW2521HF of the same name. Dell is now tight-lipped and only mentions the new monitor in a recent Alienware Arena blog post.
We were looking for a 24.5-inch IPS panel display with native Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, an incredible 360Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms GtG response time. The slim-looking bezels mean they need to stack well for use in multi-monitor setups.
As indicated only by the refresh rate, Alienware's goal is to provide a butter-smooth gaming experience and fast response through the Alienware 25 AW2521H. Alienware promises "Almost no screen will tear or blur, and have consistent colors from all angles." The
display itself runs with a response time of 360 Hz, while maintaining compatibility with Nvidia GSync Ultimate due to the integrated GSync module. The monitor also has 99% sRGB color coverage. Alienware has not revealed the contrast, connectivity and brightness specifications, so we don't have a clear picture yet, but it looks promising. The only real disadvantage of
360Hz is that users cannot use the maximum resolution of 1080p. On the other hand, since we are firmly focused on the e-sports market, 1080p is the overall standard because gamers prefer frame rates to details. Except "later this year",
Alienware did not provide much information about the launch window, but we think it is unlikely that the Alienware 25 AW2521H will arrive before Q4 2020.
Price wise, we think its price will be significantly louder than the 240Hz AW2521HF model, which retails for around $ 500. Dell promised to provide more details soon, though it revealed that the Alienware 25 AW2521H will provide the dark side of the moon's color scheme.
