The new gaming monitor boasts advanced HDR performance.
According to a recent listing on Newegg, Acer is gearing up to release its new Predator X27 4K Monitor. The advanced gaming display incorporates NVIDIA G-Sync HDR technology.
The monitor features a 27-inch AU Optronics IPS panel with a 4K resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 and a 16:9 aspect ratio. In addition, the display uses Quantum Dot technology with 10-bit and wide color gamut capabilities. HDR support is provided as well with a typical brightness of 600 nits and a peak brightness of 1,000 nits. Likewise, the monitor has 384 dynamic LED backlighting zones. Meanwhile, the panel's 4ms response helps to mitigate motion blur and visual artifacts. Finally, NVIDIA G-SYNC tech allows the screen to synchronize its refresh rate to the game being played, enabling a highly responsive, smooth, tear-free experience.
Here's a full rundown of key specs per Acer and Newegg:
- NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR
