Alienware has announced two new gaming monitors for the eSports community. It has some nifty features that might put it on our best gaming monitor list. The Alienware AW2523HF debuts with a 25-inch panel, while the AW2723DF is slightly larger at 27-inch.
The smaller of the two monitors is the AW2523HF, featuring a 0.5ms Full HD IPS panel running up to 360Hz (no overclocking) over DisplayPort 1.4. Dell introduced AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and HDR10 support in his AW2523HF. The monitor also covers 99% of the sRGB color gamut.
The monitor has a black design and is not very noticeable. The only extra touch is the number 25 embellished on the back of the monitor to indicate screen size. One nice feature is the headset hanger that extends from the top left of the monitor. When not in use, it can be stored in the monitor’s housing.
The larger monitor is the 27-inch AW2723DF, which uses LG’s Nano IPS panel. It features a Quad HD resolution with a native refresh rate of 240Hz, but can be overclocked to 280Hz for game addicts. To keep frames in sync, the AW2723DF supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and is compatible with Nvidia G-Sync. This monitor is DisplayHDR 600 certified and covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color space. AW2723DF replaces the black motif with white and has the number 27 in yellow on the back. It has the same retractable headset hanger as its smaller sibling.
HDMI 2.1 isn’t part of the equation, but both monitors have a dash of HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 ports.There’s also a USB 3.2 Gen 1 upstream and four USB-A ports downstream. Both have line-out and headphone jacks, but don’t include USB-C if you’re going with newer accessories.
According to Dell, the Alienware AW2523HF will be available on September 7th for $449.99. His larger Alienware AW2723DF won’t arrive until Oct. 6 and costs $649.99.
