Alienware unveils first 500Hz LCD Monitor

Alienware AW2524H


Alienwares monitor is a G-Sync screen with an anti-glare coating, two HDMI 2.1 ports alongside its primary DisplayPort 1.4 connector (over HDMI you are limited to 240Hz), four 5Gbps USB-A ports, customizable RGB backlighting, a pull-out headset hanger, and a pair of 3.5mm audio-out jacks in addition to Nvidia’s Reflex Latency Analyzer.

Alienware AW2524H,

There’s a standard VESA 100 x 100 mounting pattern, and it also comes with a USB-C to DP cable if you plan to connect a laptop. Lastly, there’s a DisplayHDR 400 certification, though, in our experience, that simply means it can reach 400 nits of brightness, not that it has any amount of HDR worth writing home about.

The downside, as you might expect for an ultra high-refresh-rate screen, is that you’re limited to 1080p resolution, which translates to just 90ppi on a monitor this size.

Dell to release more details closer to the shipping date later this month.
