Acer has announced two new monitors in advance of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the stand-out being the XB270HU which boasts NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology combines with an IPS panel.
All we know about the XB270HU, beyond the G-Sync and IPS inclusion, is that it is a 27-inch monitor with a 2560×1440 resolution and has an adjustable stand. More information may be forthcoming during CES.
Acer has released more information about the second monitor, though. The XG270HU is, according to the manufacturer, the “world’s first gaming monitor with an edge-to-edge frameless display.” Like the previous monitor, the XG270HU has a 27-inch, 2560×1440 resolution display, with a 144Hz fixed refresh rate.
The unit also has DVI, HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs, a flicker-free backlight, a low-glare panel, a blue light filter, and a “low-dimming technology that adjusts screen brightness when working in non-optimal lighting conditions.”
Both displays are due for release in March of this year. Prices for the two monitors have not yet been announced.
