Ahead of CES 2021, Acer already unveiled three beastly gaming monitors for this year — two of which are in line with Predator while the other one is a “budget alternative” Nitro. All three will become available in the US, Europe, and China. If you happen to own a PS5 or Xbox Series X, you may want to check this one.
Starting with the Acer Nitro XV282K KV gaming monitor, the least expensive of the bunch comes at $899.99(~Php43,000), €949, and ¥6,999. The company claims that it’s the best option for new-gen gaming consoles, as it features up to 120Hz VRR in 4K resolution — all thanks to HDMI 2.1 port.
For the spec sheet, you’re looking at a 28″ IPS LCD that actually supports up to 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. Additionally, it’s a color-accurate display, boasting a 90% DCI-P3 color gamut and a 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Lastly, it comes with AMD FreeSync Premium.
In the case of Acer Predator XB273U NX, it puts the price tag up to $1,099.99(~Php52,900), €1,179, and ¥7,999. This gets you a 27″ WQHD panel or 1440p with up to 275Hz refresh rate and an incredible half-second response time. Some gaming features that may put you ahead in competitive gaming are NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer and NVIDIA G-SYNC. It’s an accurate display as well, featuring a 95% DCI-P3 color gamut.
The XB273U NX is going to available at a later date — March in China and May for both the US and Europe.
The Acer Predator XB323QK NV is the most expensive and the largest model out of the three. You’re now looking at a 31.5″ IPS LCD with 4K resolution and support up to 144Hz refresh rate. There’s Nvidia G-Sync for gamers and VESA DisplayHDR 400 for better picture quality, though the quality of the latter varies per game or video content. On the flip end, it still covers an impressive 90% DCI-P3 color gamut.
Getting your hands on an Acer Predator XB323QK NV means spending $1,199.99(~Php57,700), €1,199, and ¥8,999.
There’s no word yet of Philippine availability for the three Acer gaming monitors.
