Alienware plans to launch two new high-end gaming monitors later this year, touting that they’ve taken direct feedback from pros about their designs.\n\n\n\nThis year will see Alienware refresh their 25-inch and 27-inch monitors with improved models, offering overclocking capabilities and surprisingly, much lower prices. Known for their laptops and desktop PCs, Alienware has begun to move into different areas of the industry, providing gaming monitors and other peripherals. \n\n\n\nThe Dell-owned company will be refreshing the AW2721D and AW2521H with the AW2723DF and AW2523HF. Outside of the improved specs, it’s notable that both of these monitors will be introduced at much lower prices. \n\n\n\nCurrently, the 27-inch monitor sits at a reduced price of $829.99, and the 25-inch at $679.99. These refreshed versions will launch at $649.99 and $449.99 (official UK pricing is \u00a3519 for the 27-inch and \u00a3399 for the 25-inch model). \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nOn paper, the two monitors look exceptional for the price they’re coming in at. Both also offer a headphone hanger to declutter the desk, which is neat. \n\n\n\nBoth monitors also sport a wealth of ins and outs, including USB 3.2 Gen 1 hubs and charging ports, but neither supports HDMI 2.1. \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAW2523HF Alienware monitor specs\n\n\n\nLaunching on September 7, the Alienware 25-inch monitor (AW2523HF) has said that the monitor is designed with feedback from the pro-gaming scene. It’ll sport a 360Hz panel – similar to its predecessor – and a smaller base design, freeing up your desk. This seems to be where the feedback flows into the design. \n\n\n\nOutside of this, there’s a claim it can hit 0.5ms response time, as well as packing a full HD, IPS panel. \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nKey specs\n\n\n\nScreen size: 25-inchAspect ratio: 16:9Resolution: 1920×1080HDR: HDR10 supportedResponse time: 0.5ms-1msRefresh rate: 360HzPanel type: Fast IPSScreen curve: NoneFreeSync Premium Pro\n\n\n\nAW2723DF Alienware monitor specs\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe bigger of the two, the Alienware 27-inch monitor (AW2723DF) will launch a month later, on October 6. More focused on being an all-around monitor for content and gaming situations, Alienware has fitted this with an upgraded QHD Fast IPS display. \n\n\n\nAlongside both Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync being included, the monitor can be overclocked to 280Hz at 1440p. According to Alienware, this makes it one of the fastest on the market. \n\n\n\nFor content creation, Alienware has included the option to swap between a native DCI-P3 with 95% coverage or sRGB color spaces. This has its own mode called ‘Creator Mode’. \n\n\n\nIt’s rated for HDR600 by Vesa, meaning that your content will be pretty close to color accurate on screen. While not perfect for color grading, video game, and YouTube or TikTok content will be great to edit on this.\n\n\n\nThankfully, as the monitor can be overclocked, it has a complete 360-degree ventilation system to avoid burning it out or starting a literal fire. \n\n\n\nKey specs\n\n\n\nScreen size: 27-inchAspect ratio: 16:9Resolution: 2560×1440HDR: DisplayVESA HDR600Response time: 0.5ms-1msRefresh rate: 240Hz, overclockable to 280HzPanel type: Fast IPS Nano ColorScreen curve: NoneFreeSync Premium Pro and Nvidia G-Sync\n\n\n\nIf you click on a product link on this page we may earn a small affiliate commission.
