Dell has introduced the Alienware AW2523HF, a gaming monitor that will be available from next month. Equipped with a 24.5-inch IPS panel, the Alienware AW2523HF offers 400 nits of peak brightness, HDR10 support and a 360 Hz refresh rate at 1080p, among other features.

Dell has presented the Alienware AW2523HF, one of two new Alienware-branded gaming monitors that it has introduced. Joined by the similarly-named Alienware AW2723DF, the Alienware AW2523HF relies on a 'Fast IPS' panel that measures 24.5-inches across. Unsurprisingly, Dell has applied an anti-glare finish across the display to diffuse reflections when gaming. Additionally, the Alienware AW2523HF utilises an LED edge light system for its backlight technology.

According to Dell, the Alienware AW2523HF supports up to a 360 Hz refresh rate. However, this is only true when connecting the monitor to a device via DisplayPort 1.4. Otherwise, the monitor peaks at 255 Hz using HDMI 2.0. It is worth noting that the Alienware AW2523HF lacks HDMI 2.1 ports, although the panel only operates at 1080p (1,920 x 1,080). Incidentally, the monitor offers a 1,000:1 contrast ratio coupled with 400 nits of peak brightness, 0.5 ms GtG response times and AMD FreeSync Premium or VESA Adaptive Sync.

Moreover, the Alienware AW2523HF boasts 99% sRGB colour space coverage, has an adjustable stand and supports several preset OSD modes, including FPS and SPORTS. Unfortunately, Dell decided against integrating AlienFX lighting. The Dell Alienware AW2523HF will be available in the US on September 7 for US$449.99. While Dell intends to start selling the monitor in other markets this autumn too, it has not confirmed pricing or exact availability details yet.
