Dell is releasing two new Alienware-branded monitors this fall. Before you ask, they don’t feature QD OLED panels like the drool-worthy ones. The more interesting of the two new monitors is the 27-inch AW2723DF. It features an LG Nano IPS panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440, a native refresh rate of 240Hz and a claimed 1ms grey-to-grey response time.
With a factory overclock, you can increase the refresh rate for games such as B. increase to 280 Hz Brave and Counter Strike Global Offensive. For more immersive gaming, the monitor offers support for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and NVIDIA G-Sync. It doesn’t feature local dimming, but for what it’s worth, HDR performance was good enough for the AW2723DF to earn VESA’s DisplayHDR 600 badge.
Alienware offers the AW2723DF as the perfect monitor for gamers who create content on the side. The AW2723DF’s screen covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. A switch in the monitor’s OSD menu lets you switch to sRGB when working for the web. As with most monitors manufactured by Dell, the AW2723DF leaves no ports open. In addition to the usual DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 ports, the monitor has multiple USB 3.2 Gen 1 inputs, as well as a headphone jack and audio output. Only one more is missing. New to the Alienware design is a retractable headset hanger. The stand offers swivel, swivel, tilt and height adjustment. You can also mount the AW2723DF via VESA if you want to use it with a monitor arm.
For the ambitious gaming audience there is the AW2523HF. It is equipped with a 25-inch LG IPS panel that offers Full HD resolution, 360Hz refresh rate and up to 0.5ms gray-to-grey response time. The screen covers 99 percent of the sRGB color space and is FreeSync Premium Pro certified. Like its brother, the AW2523HF features a retractable hanger for storing your gaming headset. The AW2523HF also comes with a hexagonal stand instead of the V-shaped stand found on most Alienware monitors. Dell says the design gives the AW2523HF a smaller footprint.
Of the two monitors, the AW2523HF will arrive first. It will go on sale September 7 for $450. Meanwhile, the AW2723DF will cost $650 when it hits shelves on October 6th.
