Acer has announced two new gaming monitors, the Predator XB273K LV, and Nitro XV272U RV. They have a diagonal size of 27 inches and feature AMD FreeSync Premium and WQHD (or UHD) resolutions. Both models must be very fast and colorfast. The UHD model uses HDMI 2.1.
Predator XB273K, LV
Acer Predator XB273K LV gaming screen uses a Agile Slendor IPS panel measuring 27 inches with a UHD resolution (3,840 x 2,160 pixels). Acer calls screens “Agile Splendor” because they are optimized for quick response times. This is the Predator XB273K LV. It has a response time (GtG), of 0.5 ms, and a variable refreshrate of 160 Hz.
DisplayHDR 600, HDMI 2.1
The monitor supports AMD FreeSync Premium. It is also certified to VESA displayHDR 600. This certification ensures that the monitor can deliver a minimum brightness of 600 cd/m2 for certain areas. The monitor uses two HDMI 2.1 ports as well as one USB Type C port to transmit image signals at this resolution and speed. The integrated KVM switch allows peripherals to be connected to the monitor and switched to other PCs. Acer has set the Delta E 1 as the maximum color deviation. This would indicate an inaudible deviation to the human eye. Acer uses the “Ergostand”, which allows for adjustment of the screen’s alignment. Additional technical data and details are still not available.
For 850 Euros starting October
The Acer Predator XB273K LV will be available starting October for a suggested retail price 849 euros.
Acer Nitro XV272U RV
Acer Nitro XV272U reliant on WQHD resolution at 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. This is combined with a variable refresh rate (overclocked) of 170 Hz and a response speed of 1 ms for GtG. The monitor supports AMD FreeSync Premium and also features an “Agile Slendor IPS panel”. It is VESA DisplayHDR400 certified and anti-reflective. The panel covers 95 percent of DCI-P3’s color space. Acer praises this model for its incredible color accuracy, Delta E 1. The stand allows you to adjust the position of the monitor, just like the UHD model. Acer has yet to provide further information about the presentation, including the type and number of video inputs.
Starting October, 400 Euros
Acer Nitro XV272U U RV will also be available in stores starting October for a suggested retail price 399 euros. ComputerBase received information from Acer about this item under NDA. Only one requirement was that the publication date be as soon as possible.
