The Hilton Hotel in Panama features an insane Alienware gaming room


The next time you’re on vacation in Panama City, you may not have any time for sightseeing at Casco Viejo or the Balboa Avenida walkway. This particular Hilton Hotel not only offers free W-Fi, but Room 2425 has been turned into the ultimate gaming getaway, courtesy of Alienware.

PC Gamer expanded on some of the details of the high-end setup, which was originally highlighted with a gallery of drool-worthy images at Xataca. Once you check in, you’ll be greeted with beefy Alienware gaming PCs, high-definition displays, booming surround sound, and even a virtual reality (VR) setup with an Occulus Rift headset.

Echale un vistazo al #Alienware Room ???? ???? en el Hotel @HiltonPanama ¡El primero de su tipo! ????

Alienware Latinoamérica shared some of the images of the room on Twitter, which showcases the futuristic sci-fi styling and amenities such as beanbag chairs and Alienware-branded pillows and tissue boxes.

‏As to the hardware itself, you’ll have no problems staying cool in the racing simulator chair with upholstery designed using NASA’s Outcast technology, which protects astronauts from temperature fulgurations. Then you can boot up your favorite shooter on a 4K 65-inch OELD TV using a PC loaded with an Intel Core i7-8700 processor and a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.

For lighter fare, there’s also an Alienware 15 laptop on the desk powered by a Core i7-7700HQ processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 GPU.

For added ambience, the room features lighting that responds to the game you’re playing using the immersive Alienware AlienFX technology, as well as peripherals too numerous to list.

Hilton has been experimenting with smart room technology for some time, but this new partnership with Alienware is taking things to the next level. Juan Carlos Garcés of Intel told the website Homecrux, “With this unique offer in the market, once again the Hilton Panama Hotel is consolidated as a hotel that focuses its tourism offer on providing unique and memorable experiences to its customers, guests, and visitors.”

The room runs $349 per night and features a fantastic view of Panama City beaches and the Pacific Ocean, but most visitors staying in Room 2425 will probably spend their entire vacation with the curtains drawn. Just be sure the minibar is fully stocked beforehand.

I tested Nvidia’s new RTX feature, and it fixed the worst part of PC gaming
A Hallway in Portal Prelude RTX.

You wouldn't suspect that a mod like Portal: Prelude RTX would debut such a major piece of kit for the future of PC gaming. But lo and behold -- it's the first game we've seen with Nvidia's new RTX IO, a feature that was announced nearly three years ago.

It's not as flashy as ray tracing or DLSS, operating in the background and offering a slew of benefits without drawing attention to them. But according to my testing, RTX IO may have a bigger impact on PC gaming than any other RTX features.

Alienware just invalidated its own high-end esports monitor
Overwatch 2 running on the Alienware 500Hz gaming monitor.

Alienware has a new batch of 27-inch monitors it's releasing, but one of them stands out from the rest: the AW2724HF. It's a 27-inch, 1080p display for $460, but it comes with a 360Hz refresh rate, which could make it one of the best gaming monitors on the market.

The big reason why is that Alienware released its AW2524H just a few months ago. That 1080p display with a 500Hz refresh rate costs almost twice as much as the AW2724HF. Although the difference between 360Hz and 500Hz sounds like a lot for competitive gaming, it's really not.

Why new OLED gaming monitors still can’t beat the best from last year
alienware 34 qd oled aw3423dw review 4

OLED gaming monitors are all the rage this year. I've reviewed nearly all the best of them, and although we're getting more, I have a pretty good idea about what 2023 holds in this developing space.

And yet, I still haven't found a display that trounces last year's Alienware 34 QD-OLED. I'm not going to pretend it's perfect -- I've complained about its insistent burn-in prompts in the past, for example. But it's the gold standard, and as I'll explain, its strengths go beyond what you can see on a spec sheet.
It's not a TV, it's a monitor
