Just in time for E3 2017, Alienware is taking the wraps off of some new monitors and accessories just for gamers. Not only does each new offering look pretty slick, but there's plenty to like from the gamer's perspective.
First up is a pair of new Alienware 25 gaming monitors. Each is 24.5-inches, with only a 1080p TN display. What each monitor lacks in resolution, however, it makes up for in refresh rate. The Alienware 25 hums along at a speedy native 240Hz, leaving plenty of headroom for exorbitant frame rates. A brightness of 400 nits and 1 millisecond response time should also mean a crisp picture and low latency.
Though each monitor carries the same specs, which one is for you lies in your choice of graphics card manufacturer: NVIDIA or AMD. For $499, you can pick up the version equipped with AMD FreeSync and a silver rear covering. For a slightly higher $699, you can grab the NVIDIA G-Sync model, which features a slightly darker back and accents. Both will do the job of smoothing out frame rates with a compatible graphics card, but the G-Sync model is slightly more expensive due to licensing fees with NVIDIA.
If you're looking to up your accessory game, Alienware is also introducing two new keyboards. Called simply the Alienware Advanced Gaming Keyboard and Alienware Pro Gaming Keyboard, both feature backlit keys and mechanical key switches.
Game-centric features like anti-ghosting and macro commands are present here as well. The Advanced Gaming model will be available for $89, while the Pro Gaming model steps things up to $120 for an upgrade to full RGB backlighting, onboard memory, and a dedicated volume roller.
Rounding out Alienware's new batch of accessories is a pair of mice. Designated the Alienware Elite Gaming Mouse and the Alienware Advanced Gaming Mouse, both are stacked with features you'd expect like programmable buttons, RGB lighting, and DPI switching. The Advanced model comes in at $49, while the Elite model moves up to $90 for the luxury of being able to adjust its weight in four different zones.
The new accessories and monitors are all set to go one sale from Dell starting June 13.
