There are plenty of incredible monitors, TVs, and other displays being revealed during CES 2024, but Alienware's new line up of monitors certainly cater to the gaming audience.

Currently seen at the showroom floor in Las Vegas for CES, the latest pair of monitors from Alienware include the AW3225QF, a 32" monitor in 4K, and the AW2725DF, a 27" monitor in 1440p, both of which feature QD-OLED panels that make this an exciting second-gen of QD-OLED Alienware monitors.

Attempting to take the top spot on our best gaming monitors list is the Alienware 32" 4K QD-OLED Gaming Monitor. This new monitor from the company is said to offer refresh rates of up to 240Hz, as well as featuring Dolby Vision HDR and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400. It also arrives with a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection and two HDMI 2.1 ports.

While the second monitor in the line up, the Alienware 27" 360Hz QD-OLED Gaming Monitor, was meant to be the first 360Hz QD-OLED monitor in the world, Samsung's new Odyssey range beat it to the punch. However, considering the new Alienware monitors are using Samsung displays, we think it's still an exciting time to be in the market for a new monitor.

As for specs, the second monitor also offers VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400, but doesn't feature Dolby Vision HDR. However, it is not a curved monitor like its bigger brother, which may appeal to some gamers who prefer playing esports games. Fortunately, the larger option will be incredible for those looking to experience cinematic single-player games.

Both feature a rapidly fast 0.03ms grey-to-grey response time, with the top model delivering Nvidia G-SYNC compatibility, while the 27" monitor delivers AMD FreeSync compatibility. As for prices and release dates, both monitors will launch on January 11 for US cusomers, with the AW3225QF priced at $1,199, and the AW2725DF selling for $899.99 respectively.

Personally, as a curved 1440p monitor user, I'm very excited to experience either of these monitors when we test them. The range of monitors being unveiled at CES 2024 is certainly exciting, and the high refresh rates coming from QD-OLED displays should make for some incredible gaming experiences.
