Ron Perillo / 6 years ago
During E3 2017 in Los Angeles, gaming system manufacturer Alienware unveiled their latest Alienware 25 240Hz gaming monitor. The panel is the very first display offered by the company, and signals their expansion to providing more hardware solutions. They have been around for many years but have only been offering pre-built systems and laptops until now. The Alienware 25 is designed deliberately with gamers in mind having a 240Hz panel that boasts a 1ms response time. Despite the 25-inch size however, the gaming display’s maximum resolution is only up to 1080p.
G-Sync or FreeSync? Your Choice
What the Alienware 25 does offer is the option of either NVIDIA G-Sync or AMD FreeSync. NVIDIA’s solution requires additional hardware and as such, costs $200 premium. The FreeSync version (model AW2518HF) costs $499 while the G-Sync version (model AW2518H) costs $699. The cheaper FreeSync version also offers 2x HDMI 2.0a input aside from a single DP1.2. The more expensive G-Sync version however, only has a single DP 1.2 and a single HDMI 1.4 display connector.
The Alienware 25 is designed to be fully adjustable. This includes swivel, tilt and pivot, giving users the ability to be as comfortable as possible while gaming. It also has a fully customizable RGB lighting system which users can sync with the in-game action.
Other than the display and audio ports, the Alienware 25 monitor features a single USB 3.0 upstream port and three USB 3.0 downstream ports. It even supports a super-charging feature in one of these ports.
