Planning to buy a 500Hz monitor before the Counter Strike 2 release date? Well, it’s possible Valve’s multiplayer game won’t fully utilize the new standard, as producing a frame rate to match seems like a chore. That’s not to say you’ll ever have to force yourself to push triple-digit fps in Counter Strike 2, but even the mighty Nvidia RTX 4090 won’t necessarily satisfy fast screens like the Alienware AW2524H.
Counter Strike 2 could become the next best FPS game in the esports scene, so it’s only natural to assume that gamers will be looking for higher frame rates than ever before. Naturally, manufacturers are already gearing up to help the industry reach new levels of performance, with 500Hz displays making their debut alongside GPUs like the one featured in our Nvidia RTX 4090 review.
However, while early previews of the game from Twitch streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek are good, sustaining over 500 fps in Counter Strike 2 could be a challenge. During a recent stream, the Canadian content creator triggered a frame rate counter per post, and the fps seemed to hover mostly between 200 and 400 fps.
For context, Shroud uses a Maingear MG-1 gaming PC, armed with an RTX 4090 and an Intel Core i9-13900K processor. In other words, it’s equipped with the best combination of graphics card and processor on the market, so you’d think that would be enough to match a 500Hz refresh rate. That doesn’t seem to be the case though, and that may mean new fast esports screens are too advanced for current setups.
Of course, this is all pure speculation, and the frame rate situation could change once Counter Strike 2 officially arrives. It is also possible that the Shroud settings are not fully dialed to achieve 500 fps because the transmitter is using a Asus ROG Swift 1440P 360Hz Monitor.
We can’t wait to get our hands on an Alienware AW2524H and Counter Strike 2 monitor, and only time will tell if investing in 500Hz refresh rate panels is worth it. perfectly to the specifications of your gaming PC.
