If you’ve felt the need for gaming speed, Acer’s trio of ultra-fast high-resolution monitors might just catch your eye. Announced ahead of CES 2021, all three also offer adaptive sync technology for buttery-smooth, tear-free gaming experiences, as well as TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe-certified screens designed to emit less blue light than standard LCDs. Maybe that’ll help you get to sleep more quickly after a long, late-night gaming session.
The most interesting display actually rocks the lowest resolution. The 27-inch Predator XB273U NX pictured above features a 2560×1440-resolution IPS display—PC gaming’s sweet spot—but pushed to insane speeds. It hums along at a blistering 265Hz when overclocked, with a 0.5-millisecond grey-to-grey response time. Acer said the monitor is “HDR capable” without offering more detailed specifics (don’t expect true 1000-nit HDR visuals) and says the screen covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 spectrum.
