Alienware 500Hz Gaming Monitor (AW2524H)

In all the joy of CES, it’d be simple to miss a product as we have a look at 1000’s of pitches. Nevertheless, it’s unusual, however not unparalleled, to see 500 and Hz collectively in monitor specs, so we needed to take a more in-depth look.

Dell/Alienware has launched a brand new 500 Hz 24.5” FHD gaming monitor. With that sort of refresh price, you actually need a tear-free expertise. Luckily, this monitor is appropriate with NVIDIA’s G-Sync, in the event you even have a appropriate NVIDIA GPU.

This monitor is match for avid gamers who wish to have the sort of {hardware} skilled gamers use in a gaming competitors. The 24.5” measurement matches the field of regard the place you’re essentially the most centered, and the excessive framerate ensures the monitor gained’t restrict the interplay loop between you and the sport. The retractable headphones hanger is a pleasant contact too.

Extra doubtless, it will be the GPU or CPU that turns into a limiting issue. Sure, these two very costly objects ought to go together with the sort of monitor except you play the unique Minecraft at a excessive framerate (I don’t decide). If there’s latency, look elsewhere, and you should utilize NVIDIA’s Reflex Analyzer to seek out it.

Different technical knowledge for this monitor embody a VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, 99% sRGB coloration gamut, and a few blue-light discount options generally present in costly trendy shows.

The 0.5 ms (milliseconds) response time (GtG) is greater than sufficient to react even to a 500Hz refresh, which is about 2 ms between frames.

Design-wise, the monitor is agreeable, with a low-footprint hexagonal stand (intriguing look!) that appears to depart loads of room in your desk. The rear appears to have a 100×100 VESA plate, however we can not confirm it now.

There’s competitors on this area, together with ASUS (RoG Swift 540Hz monitor) and BOE, a big show producer. BOE demonstrated 500 Hz shows final 12 months and a 16-inch 600 Hz laptop computer monitor only a month in the past.

Avid gamers may rejoice, however GPU distributors like AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel are even happier since you want a linearly extra highly effective graphics processor to realize larger framerate. With fancy, AI-based, upscaling applied sciences, rendering in 4X decision may solely require 1.6X extra computing energy.
