The Acer Predator gaming monitor lineup expanded this week with some eye-safe features and super-smooth visuals. The Predator XB273U NX works with a 27-inch WQHD panel with 275Hz refresh rate (overclocked), and NVIDIA G-Sync, while the Predator XB323QK NV sports a 31.5-inch NVIDIA G-Sync compatible panel with 144Hz image refresh rate. The third monitor revealed this week, Nitro XV282K KV, was aimed specifically at the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, complete with 120Hz variable refresh rate right out the gate.
The Acer Predator XB273U NX is a 27-inch monitor with WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixel) resolution and an overclocked refresh rate of 275Hz! This monitor also delivers up to a 0.5 ms response time (G to G) right out the gate.
The NX works with Acer Agile-Splendor IPS technology for the widest of viewing angles, as well as the newly launched NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer. This system measures the time it takes between a mouse click and the resulting pixel result on the screen. That’ll be interesting to measure given the NVIDIA G-Sync tech built in to this panel.
