Acer introduced six new monitors focused on games. This means that they arrive with IPS technology and a high frame rate, above 170 Hz, contributing to the response time for games.
But before we talk about each of the new models, you need to understand how Acer nomenclatures work. The brand has two lines for gamers: Predator, focused on cutting-edge technology, and Nitro, which works as the most basic version of the two (although still with a high level).
The line has four new devices. Below, you can check from the most powerful to the least, differentiating your specifications. It is important to keep in mind that the entire line has G-Sync from Nvidia and IPS, ensuring a high response rate.
Predator X 34 GS
The device arrives with a 34-inch IPS screen and ultra-wide QHD definition (3440 x 1440). According to the company, the model can achieve up to 180 Hz update and is compatible with VESA DisplayHDR 400. The monitor still has 7 W speakers.
This new Predator should be launched in December this year in the United States for US $ 1,100, equivalent to R $ 6,150.
Predator XB323U GX
This version is very similar to the previous one. It maintains the model with QHD, but without being ultra-wide. Thus, it is a 32 inch screen that can reach up to 270 Hz of update. With a response time of 0.5 ms, it is also compatible with G-Sync.
The model is scheduled to launch in January 2021 for US $ 900, equivalent to R $ 5,050.
Predator XB273U NV
Still on models with QHD IPS, this device is smaller, with 27 inches. It reaches 170 Hz with 1ms response. The monitor also comes with the VisionCare 4.0 system, a sensor capable of automatically adjusting brightness and color temperature according to the environment.
It is scheduled to launch in January 2021 costing US $ 550, equivalent to R $ 3,070.
Predator XB253Q GW
Finally, this is the most basic model in the line. It is the only one of the four to achieve only 1080p on its 24.5-inch IPS screen, reaching a 280 Hz update, which is ideal for games with a high response demand.
The model is scheduled for launch in January 2021 for US $ 430, equivalent to R $ 2,400.
Now, let’s go to the entry-level gamer models. Here, there are two very similar versions, both 27-inch:
This 27-inch IPS monitor has QHD definition, reaching up to 170 Hz update and 1ms response time. It also comes with VisionCare 4.0 technology to automatically adjust to the environment.
The device costs US $ 400 (equivalent to R $ 2,250), with launch in December.
Finally, the most basic model presented by Acer is this one. It has 1080p definition on its IPS screen, with a refresh rate of 165 Hz. The company has not given further information about the device, as yet.
This monitor should also hit the market in December, for US $ 280, equivalent to R $ 1,570.
