Acer announced a range of new gaming monitors during its [email protected] event. They are not only more affordable than the previous ones on the market but the company has worked hard to include some nifty new features in new Acer XB3 Series gaming monitors. The displays come in a range of models from the Acer Predator XB25, XB27, XB32, XB34.
The most interesting new Acer gaming monitor is the Predator X34 GS. This is a 34-inch ultra-wide curved QHD 3440×1440 IPS display. It features NVIDIA G-Sync and is overclockable to 180Hz. In addition, Acer claims the monitor features a very fast half-millisecond response time. It is also built for the future with VESA DisplaHDR 400 and includes a 98% DCI-P3 colour spectrum. This is not Acer’s first ultra-wide display, the company claims it is cheaper than its previous models. It is set to launch in December
If ultra-wide is not your thing then the company also announced a range of smaller, feature-packed monitors too. The 24-inch Acer Predator XB25 display includes an RGB LED strip under the display that can illuminate to your music and react to what you are playing. It is a 1080p display with NVIDIA G-Sync and is overclockable to 280Hz. It also features the half-millisecond response time. It is set to launch in January.
One of the most striking displays is the Acer Predator XB27 which is a 27-inch QHD, 2540×1440 monitor. It has a 1m response time and a 170Hz refresh rate. However, Acer has built-in an RGB strip at the back of the displays. This strip syncs with your games and content you are viewing and glows in a similar set of colours depending on what you are doing. Acer has designed the RGB strip to “extend” your display by shooting colours and lights out of the back of the monitor. Similar to some Phillips Hue devices on the market.
Acer has implemented a few eye care options into each new display with their new AcerVisionCare 4.0. This is their most advanced version of the lighting solution and includes different ways to protect your eyes from strain while gaming. Some monitors reduce blue light, some have no flicker and others adapt to your environment to reduce bright scenes. You can read all about the new AcerVisionCare 4.0 here.
Unfortunately, we don’t any local pricing and release dates yet for these monitors. However, they are set to launch in December in the US so expect them in 2021.
