Gamers rejoice: Acer are releasing a QHD (2,560×1,440) monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate and G-Sync to compete with the ASUS ROG Swift, currently the only NVIDIA G-Sync capable monitor. The Acer XB270HU is set to be part of the company’s Predator gaming range, which includes a series of “extreme gaming” desktop PCs.
The XB270HU is rumoured to be using an AU Optronics ‘M270Q002’ panel, the same screen plate as the ASUS ROG Swift, so should also feature its rival’s Ultra-Low Motion Blur (ULMB) capacity. The screen also features 16.7 million colours, 1,000:1 static contrast ratio, W-LED backlight, 170/160-degree viewing angles, and 250 nits of brightness.
The monitor is set to feature four USB 3.0 ports, full tilt range, height adjustment of up to 150mm, and 100mm x 100mm VESA support included for mounting.
The Acer XB270HU is set for release in early 2015. The price is yet to be announced.
