240Hz Monitors

Gain every advantage with a 240Hz monitor

When every millisecond counts and sharper gameplay is the key to victory, a 240Hz monitor gives you the upper hand. A higher number of hertz means that users get a higher number of images per second, offering a smoother imaging experience. A faster refresh rate minimizes input lag and delivers vibrant visuals with no screen tearing. And quicker IPS enables 1 ms gray-to-gray to eliminate blur so you can see the field more clearly.

Alienware Gaming monitors provide blazing-fast 240Hz refresh rates. With iconic design, optimized ventilation, and intense color coverage from any angle, Alienware 240Hz monitors offer a seamless gaming experience that delivers a competitive edge.

Benefits of a 240Hz monitor

As a dedicated gamer, you want every advantage you can get. Clearer images and faster response times can be game-changers, and a 240Hz gaming monitor delivers both. Increasing the refresh rate – the number of times per second an image is refreshed – by 4x over 60Hz monitors, a 240Hz display produces a smoother, more fluid appearance while enabling faster reaction times in competitive multiplayer environments.

Fast reaction times
240Hz monitors allow gamers to spot and track targets more easily and react more quickly. This is critical for gamers that want a smoother display and a more fluid gaming experience. In gaming, seconds can make a critical difference.

Sharp images
A higher refresh rate reduces the blur of moving images on the monitor. A refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that a display “refreshes” its image. Gamers can notice and benefit from a higher monitor refresh rate, and your brain will perceive the image as “sharper” and less blurry.

Eliminate screen tearing
Screen tearing happens when a video card produces images at a frame rate that is beyond the refresh rate of the monitor. The result is a screen that appears to show images from multiple frames, with an obvious split. The faster refresh rate of a 240Hz monitor addresses this issue.

Reduce input lag
Refresh rates can also have a huge impact on input lag. A 240Hz monitor has a lag that is half of a 120Hz monitor, and one-quarter of a 60Hz display.
