Acer is one of the most prominent brands in the gaming industry. The company offers a whole range of gaming hardware, from laptops to mice. The company recently announced a whole range of mid-range (Nitro series) and high-end (Predator Series) gaming monitors available either at the end of the current or at the start of the coming year.
Predator X34 GS
The Predator X34 GS offers a 34-inch curved ultrawide IPS panel that supports VESA DisplayHDR 400 and covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The QHD display can be overclocked to run at 180Hz with only 0.5ms of response time. It is actually one of the affordable models in the 1440p high refresh ultrawide range as it is expected to cost around $1100 when it launches in December this year.
Other than that, the monitor is G-sync compatible, which means the gaming experience will be smooth with little to no jittering. Lastly, the monitor comes with two 7W speakers.
Predator XBU232U GX
The Predator XBU232U GX offers mostly similar specifications compared to Predator X34 GS but only costs $900. The screen is a little smaller at 32-inches and features a flat display. Other than that, it offers up to 270Hz refresh rate with half a millisecond response time. It also features local dimming zones, which output deep blacks and maintain a high contrast ratio.
Predator XB273U NV
The Predator XB273U NV features Acer’s new VisionCare 4.0 tech, which automatically adjusts the brightness and color temperature. It is a flat 27-inch QHD IPS panel capable of refreshing up to 170 times per second with 1ms response time. It also supports DisplayHDR 400 and covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Acer did not disclose the G-Sync functionality of the monitor. It will cost $550 when it launches at the start of 2021.
Nitro XV272U KV and XV272U LV
These are the mid-range offerings for the upcoming year. Both monitors feature a 165Hz refresh rate, but ‘KV’ offers it at 1440p resolution while ‘LV’ only features a 1080p panel. Other than this, the ‘KV’ model also supports VisionCare 4.0. The XV272U KV costs $400, and XV272U LV only costs $280. Lastly, both monitors cover 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and will be available in December.
