Alienware is preparing its fastest desktop gaming monitor ever, according to a new leak.Twitter’s Chi11eddog today shared images of the alleged Alienware AW2524H. This is an IPS monitor with a claimed 500 Hz refresh rate. The veteran leaker added that this attractive and stylish gaming monitor will be officially unveiled at his CES 2023 which kicks off next week.
There is not much additional information available for Alienware AW2524H. Sources share the biggest news. So this is a “Fast IPS” panel packing monitor with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. As for the main refresh rate, this monitor is claimed to hit 480 Hz natively on the DisplayPort connector, but with moderate overclocking it can also reach 500 Hz on the same connector.
Alienware monitor terminology indicates that the AW2524H uses a 25 inch (probably 24.5 inch) display panel. Most of the company’s currently available monitors contain the next two digits after ’23’, so it’s reasonable to assume that his new AW2524H will be on the market soon and will stay current until 2024. It seems. Finally, Alienware stands for “D” in the model name for curved monitors, so this is definitely a flat display. The “H” suffix may indicate a very high refresh rate.
The Alienware AW2524H design as pictured by Chi11eddog looks very similar to the current AW2523HF we reviewed in October, although the logo text on the back appears to be a different color/LED backlight. Available for around $400, this model also features a fast FHS IPS panel, which scored well in our tests. However, the new model bumps the top refresh rate from 360Hz to a magical 500Hz. Mainstream gamers may shrug off the jump from 360 Hz to 500 Hz, but Alienware’s upcoming gaming monitors could excite serious esports gamers with powerful PCs. .
Back in May, we reported on the Asus ROG Swift 500 Hz G-Sync monitor shown at the Nvidia Computex event. However, the Asus model is built around a new 24-inch 1080p ‘E-TN’ eSports TN panel that may not offer compelling color characteristics or viewing angles. It’s worth taking a look back at this news as we’re focused on explaining the appeal of 500Hz monitors in gaming and the competitive advantage they bring. Nvidia sums up the appeal of ultra-fast-refresh monitors like the ROG Swift 500 with the phrase “frames win games.”
CES 2023 officially opens on Thursday, January 5th. Many PC technology treats are expected this year, with most of the big name PC and component companies lining up to give presentations and new products.
