With the AW2524H, Alienware is announcing a new gaming monitor with IPS panel and 500 Hz variable refresh rate at CES 2023, which is achieved when overclocked – the standard is 480 Hz. The maximum refresh rate can only be used via DisplayPort; if HDMI is used, up to 240 Hz can be used.

24.5 inch with 1 ms and Nvidia Reflex

The display of the AW2524H is 24.5 inches and uses the Full HD resolution of 1,920 × 1,080 pixels. The pixel density is therefore 90 ppi. Alienware specifies the response time as 0.5 ms grey-to-grey (GtG), which is supposed to be the minimum response time, but 1 ms GtG is typical. The new monitor is also equipped with Nvidia’s Reflex Analyzer (test), so that players can view the delay between command input and image output directly on the display. In addition, and as a prerequisite for Reflex, the monitor is equipped with Nvidia’s G-Sync module, so that the image output can be synchronized with an Nvidia graphics card to prevent tearing.

DisplayHDR 400, 2x HDMI, 1x DP

The panel is said to cover 99 percent of the sRGB color space and is certified according to VESA DisplayHDR 400, i.e. it shines with at least 400 cd/m² in certain areas, which Alienware also specifies as the typical brightness of the monitor. The contrast should be 1,000:1, which is typical for IPS. Two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort are offered as video connections – Alienware does not name the exact standards. In addition, four USB ports are available, all of which have a maximum speed of 5 Gbit/s and one of which is intended for use with the Nvidia Reflex Analyzer. A line-out and a headphone output are also available. A joystick placed in the middle of the lower frame is used to operate the OSD. The on/off switch is positioned separately at the bottom right.

AlienFX RGB, headset holder and new stand

The monitor is therefore aimed at competitive gamers, although Alienware would like to have incorporated the feedback of these gamers into the design of the monitor. The fold-out headset holder on the left side of the frame of the display and the smaller, hexagonal base that takes up less space on the table are therefore also new – alternatively, a VESA mount can also be used. The display can be adjusted in height by 110 mm, tilted by -5 to 21 degrees and rotated by 20 degrees. Pivot is also supported.

On the back, the monitor has customizable RGB lighting called AlienFX Lighting, which illuminates the Alienware logo, among other things. Alienware specifies the maximum power consumption of the entire monitor as 86 watts.

The display, which weighs 9.9 kg with the stand, has dimensions of maximum 500.51 × 555.14 × 243.71 mm (H×W×D).

Alienware AW2524H pricing and availability

At CES 2023, however, Alienware does not officially name a price or a specific date for the AW2524H, but only announces the first quarter of this year as the release period. However, March 21, 2023 is planned for North America, while February 8 is already planned for China.

ComputerBase has received information about this item from Alienware under an NDA. The only requirement was the earliest possible publication date.

Next Generation EU 03

The third edition of the report has already been published “NextGenerationEU Guide, for the industry to better understand and take advantage of its opportunities”. As usual, it has been published by the EAIC (European Association of Innovation Consultants), of which FI Group is a part.

The report, which once again included the participation of the FI Group, explains how each of the 24 European countries distributes the almost 326 billion European aid granted in their National Recovery and Resilience Plans.

The latest update of the report highlights the maximum financial contribution that corresponds to each Member State, calculated taking into account the growth in real GDP in 2020 and the accumulated growth in real GDP in the period 2020-2021.

Most Member States saw their maximum financial contribution in the aid component of their Recovery plans decrease, due to changes in the calculations made in June 2022, based on real GDP growth data. The only countries that saw their funds increased were Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria Y Portugal.

Main updates and news reported by Member States

  • The implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Plans is in full swing: calls have been launched to receive proposals, projects are being evaluated and aid agreements are being signed.
  • Member States have started work on the review of plans, following the decision made on June 30, 2022 on the final distribution of funds; some of the new plans are still being evaluated (for example: more funds in Lithuania to boost energy independence, renewable energy and cybersecurity).
  • The report also highlights the main calls for proposals launched in each of the 24 Member States (for digitization, innovation, circular economy, etc.), both those active right now and those planned soon.
  • Some of the Member States (Finland for example) have already distributed all the funds allocated to them in their Recovery and Resilience Plans.

Alejandro Álvarez, Grants Director at FI Group, as well as a member of the EAIC Board and coordinator of this report, highlights that it is a unique initiative at a European level. “We have been following the development of the Recovery and Resilience Plans since the start of the negotiations and have managed to offer comprehensive information on the opportunities that are emerging across Europe. Building on the success of this pioneering initiative, we are looking to broaden the focus of the report to provide an even more valuable overview of the opportunities for all key players in the industry.” explains Alvarez.

ovhcloud demanda microsoft ue

OVHcloud has recently included the option to use Bring Your Own License or BYOL in its portfolio of Nutanix on OVHcloud solutions.

The Nutanix users they can now bring their existing Nutanix Cloud Platform licenses to dedicated OVHcloud Hosted Private Cloud infrastructures, making it easier for them to transition to the cloud. OVHcloud, which recently received the Nutanix EMEA Service Provider of the Year award, continues to expand its offer of Nutanix on OVHcloud solutions with the addition of the BYOL offer to complement the existing pack offer.

Existing Nutanix customers and partners can now bring their Nutanix Cloud Platform licenses to Nutanix-certified High Grade HCI Intel dedicated servers, benefiting from license portability and application migration transparency. Customers’ Nutanix hyper-converged environment (HCI) is pre-installed in just hours and ready to use with their custom infrastructure.

The Nutanix on OVHcloud solution enables a faster migration of on-premises applications to the cloud, while benefiting from OVHcloud infrastructures. With a low carbon footprint and best-in-class PUE and WUE indices, the OVHcloud infrastructure stands out for its global sustainability, thanks to a circular group approach that allows for maximum optimization of the server’s life cycle. In addition, OVHcloud data centers meet high data protection and security standards.

“We are delighted to continue our strong partnership with Nutanix, addressing new use cases and providing new business opportunities for our ecosystem partners”says Sylvain Rouri, Chief Sales Officer at OVHcloud.

User needs

This new offering allows OVHcloud to meet the needs of users, covering seasonal peaks in infrastructure demand and developing disaster recovery plans (DRPs), all while providing a cost-effective solution. Like the Nutanix on OVHcloud bundle offer, the BYOL offer consists of 27 variants of dedicated servers and Nutanix High Grade HCI certified servers based on Intel processors and includes inbound and outbound traffic, helping to improve OPEX for significant savings compared to non-hyperconverged infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

“As a company, we continually demonstrate the power of strong partnerships. OVHcloud already has an excellent understanding of our technology with its existing Nutanix on OVHcloud solution. For this reason, it makes sense for us to expand our relationship to include a BYOL offering.”says Dom Poloniecki, Worldwide Sales Chief of Staff and Head of Sales Strategy & Operations at Nutanix. “The real winners here are our common customers and partners who are looking for cost-effective ways to scale to an OPEX model in the cloud, but who, to date, have not yet made the switch from an on-premises environment. With OVHcloud and Nutanix, they have the best of both worlds.”

The Nutanix on OVHcloud solution is a scalable and ready HCI platform to use that is offered both as a pack and BYOL, and is based on a dedicated Hosted Private Cloud OVHcloud infrastructure certified by Nutanix. It is now available online in EMEA and Canada, with data centers located in Canada, France, Germany and the UK.

How to choose hosting and domain for my website

hosting

The digitization in small and medium-sized companies it is no longer just a trend, but a necessity. And the first step for those who continue to lag behind is the creation of a website. But where to start? Part of the aid from European funds is destined to the development of this type of tools where, in addition to an innovative design, you will need a good hostingso that everything works perfectly.

The hosting provider: what should you demand?

The hosting provider is something like the home where your website is cared for and protected. Therefore, it must be reliable and secure, but for businesses with less budget, it also cheap. Your digital project must also have a domain, the obtaining of which falls within the responsibilities of this provider. If all these concepts are new to you, don’t worry, here we help you with some tips:

  1. That the hosting is hosted in Spain. This will allow you minimize costs but without having to give up offering your visitors a good user experience. When you have your data in the country, all the traffic you have from here (the vast majority) will enjoy minimal latency, and optimal loading times, they will not have to wait several seconds for the web page to load, and they will not experience very marked delays when interacting with her.
  2. That he Technical support is in Spanish and with 24/7 coverage: If you run a small business or a personal project, you know that work and problems can arise at any time. Having support in your own language and that is available will always help you a lot in your project.
  3. Servers with NVMe SSD drives: this is essential for your project to load faster and for it to offer the level of performance that your users deserve.
  4. Hacking and cyberattack prevention services: essential for your website to be safe and protected.
  5. Flexibility and scalability: The hosting you choose should give you the possibility of adapting it to your needs, and to the changes that occur in your project. If your idea is to grow, it is essential that the hosting do it with you.
  6. Possibility to try it for free: This is important because it will allow you to discover if the hosting you have chosen is really the right one for you, and without you having to spend a penny.

An example of hosting that meets all these requirements is Axarnet which, for a price starting at 2.49 euros, has all the features described above. Also, you can try it for free for a month without having to enter any payment method. It will also allow you to register your domain for free in annual contracts, and you will enjoy a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate at no cost.

In the event that you already have a domain, you can always transfer it to Axarnet hosting and in a very simple way. What are you waiting for to have your own web showcase?
