Alienware's new devices that feature fast refresh rates and retractable headset hangers are coming to the market later this year.
Manufacture of gaming laptops and desktops Alienware has introduced a new series of gaming monitors. The line includes two models – a 25-inch monitor with a 360Hz variable refresh rate and a 27-inch monitor that can be overclocked to 280 Hz.
Both devices feature a more compact design than other Alienware models due to their smaller bases. Monitors are also equipped with retractable headset hanger which extend from the top-left side of the monitor. The company notes that this design should free up space on gaming desks allowing users to have more real estate for massive desk pads and full-sized keyboards.
The smaller model (AW2523HF) is done in a minimalistic design and is made of matte black plastic. It has the Alienware head logo and "25" lettering on the back. The monitor features a 0.5ms Full HD IPS panel that runs at up to 360 Hz (without overclocking) over DisplayPort 1.4. AW2523HF supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro as well as HDR10. The company also claims that this monitor covers 99% of the sRGB gamut.
The 27-inch model (AW2723DF) is DisplayHDR 600 certified and adds the Creator Mode option that covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum as well as full sRGB color space. The monitor uses a Nano IPS panel with a native refresh rate of 240Hz, however, it also gives users an opportunity to overclock it to 280 Hz. As well as the 25-inch model, AW2723DF includes AMD FreeSync Premium Pro certification but unlike the smaller model, it also has NVIDIA G-Sync support.
