Alienware Introduces Cheaper Gaming Monitor: AW2524HF

Alienware, a leading brand in gaming technology, has released a new monitor targeting gamers on a budget. The AW2524HF, priced at $649.99, is a more affordable alternative to the highly regarded AW2524H, which costs $180 more.

While retaining the impressive 24.5-inch 500Hz IPS panel, the AW2524HF has made a few changes to meet the lower price point. One notable difference is the inclusion of AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, replacing Nvidia G-Sync found in the AW2524H. Additionally, the port selection has been adjusted, with the AW2524HF offering one HDMI 2.1 port and two DisplayPort 1.4 ports, compared to two HDMI 2.1 ports and one DisplayPort 1.4 port in the AW2524H.

Besides these alterations, the AW2524HF lacks the DisplayHDR 400 certification and the AlienFX RGB lightning found on the back panel of its more expensive counterpart. However, the AW2524HF maintains the familiar specifications of a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 480Hz native refresh rate (overclockable to 500Hz), 0.5ms gray-to-gray response time, and 99 percent coverage of the sRGB color space.

Gamers looking to make a decision between the two monitors should consider if the omitted features in the AW2524HF are worth the significant discount. Nevertheless, those with a powerful gaming setup capable of utilizing a 500Hz refresh rate monitor may not be concerned with the $180 price difference.

The Alienware AW2524HF is now available for purchase on for $649.99. Additionally, the AW2524H is currently on sale with an $80 discount, bringing its price down to $749, resulting in a difference of just $100 between the two models.
