If there’s one alleged problem with higher-refresh monitors on the market, it’s the fact that the majority of them utilize TN panels, which are criticized for lackluster viewing angles and poor color reproduction. Well, Dell intends to remedy that with the new Alienware 25 – a 24.5-inch IPS display that’s capable of refresh rates of up to 360 Hz.
Alienware and Dell haven’t shared a lot of details on this sexy monitor yet, but it’ll presumably be an ideal pick for competitive gamers who not only want an ultra-smooth image, but more accurate colors, higher contrast ratios, and wider viewing angles as well.
“For gamers who demand an incredibly fast and responsive display, the upcoming Alienware 25 Gaming 360Hz Monitor (AW2521H) in our signature Legend ID will pull gamers right into the action,” wrote Alienware. “This 24.5-inch monitor has a 360Hz refresh rate – three times faster than most gaming monitors – coupled with NVIDIA G-SYNC®. Thanks to fast IPS technology, PC games will run buttery-smooth with virtually no screen tearing or blurring, with consistent colors from every angle. It will be available in Dark Side of the Moon color later this year. More details to come your way soon.”
TFT Central believes that the Alienware 25 utilizes the same panel as ASUS’s ROG Swift 360 Hz. This is a 1080p display that also flaunts NVIDIA G-SYNC.
