A new Alienware gaming monitor boasting a 0.5ms response time is on its way, the AW2523HF. It packs several additional features that could make it an extremely desirable display for competitive gamers, including a Fast IPS panel that supports refresh rates up to 360Hz.

While its 25-inch 1080p 360Hz panel should offer excellent motion clarity, FreeSync Premium will help keep stuttering and tearing at bay for a more enjoyable gaming experience. It’s also one of the few monitors on the market today to have received the VESA AdaptiveSync seal of approval, meaning you can expect great out-of-the-box performance.

The AW2523HF also has some welcome creature comforts, including a new ‘Legend 2.0’ design that sees the intrusive wide feet of other Alienware monitors swapped out for a hexagonal base. You’ll also have somewhere to hang up the best gaming headset in your arsenal, thanks to the new integrated retractable headset.

You’ll be able to pick up the AW2723DF for $649.99 USD / $829.99 CAD from October 6, while the AW2523HF comes in at just $449.99 USD / $569.99 CAD and will be available starting September 7.
