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:


- IPS 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD), 144Hz

- Brightness: 600 nits / 1000 nits (Peak)

- 4ms (GTG) Response time

- HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, USB 3.0 x 4

- Predator Shield, Light Sensor

- Swivel, Rotate, Height Adjustments, VESA

Acer's Predator X27 4K Gaming Monitor is now available for pre-order at an MSRP of $2,000. Shipments are scheduled for June 1.

And in addition to the 27-inch model, Acer is also expected to release its first Big Format Gaming Display, or BFGD for short, this summer. The upcoming 65-inch monitor also offers 4K HDR support with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, along with NVIDIA SHIELD media player capabilities. BFGD models are set to be available from ASUS and HP as well.
