Alienware 500Hz Gaming Monitor Specs & Features

The Alienware 500Hz gaming monitor features a 24.5-inch Full HD (FHD) IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Named the “AQ2524H,” this gaming monitor offers you a buttery gameplay experience, all thanks to the native 480Hz refresh rate which overclocks to 500Hz. At present, the fastest gaming monitor available to purchase is capped at around 360 Hz refresh rate. While we are more focused on the refresh rate, we shouldn’t forget that the Alienware 500Hz gaming monitor also comes with a sub-GtG response time of 0.5 ms. The impressive response time should curb the blur and ghosting effect while offering ultra-low latency so that gamers can have a competitive advantage in the virtual battle. However, the main challenge is running a game at 500fps as compared to truly experiencing a 500Hz display. 

Further, the Alienware 500Hz gaming monitor comes with NVIDIA G-Sync certification which ensures smooth and tear-free gameplay, given you have a supported graphics card. Alienware also says that there’s a Reflex Analyzer from NVIDIA as a standard to help you gain a better understanding of your system latency as well as its performance.
