Alienware is aiming to appeal to esports players with two new gaming monitors, the AW2523HF and the slightly larger AW2723DF. Both models are slimmer than Alienware’s past designs, prioritize high-speed refresh rates and pack in retractable headset stands to keep desk spaces free of clutter.
The simpler, and smaller, of the models is the 25-inch (610 mm) AW2523HF. Featuring a matte all-black colorway with the company’s iconic logo on the back, the HF sports a 1920 x 1080 resolution Fast IPS panel with a 360Hz refresh rate. It also has a revamped OSD layout to accommodate different gaming genres and adaptive sync support.
The white AW2723DF, meanwhile, stands at 27-inches (686 mm), also with the same updated OSD layout and two USB ports. This model, however, boasts a 1440p resolution with max 280Hz refresh rate. The DF is certified G-Sync compatible, meaning it’s been tried and tested by Nvidia as a top-notch monitor.
Alienware’s new AW2523HF launches on September 7 for $449.99 USD. The AW2723DF will follow on October 6, priced at $649.99 USD.
