Acer’s most badass, feature-filled PC monitor ever built is almost here. After teasing it January this year, the PC maker finally pulled the curtain on the beastly Predator X27 at its Next@Acer event in New York on Thursday. It is tipped to become the “perfect” monitor for gaming for those who don’t like ultra wides, at least.

Specs

The Acer Predator X27 is the company’s take on Nvidia’s prototype HDR monitor design first revealed at the Consumer Electonics Show 2017. It boasts a 27-inch 16:9 panel, 4K UHD resolution, HDR, a wide color gamut, local dimming backlighting, and an ultra-fast 144Hz refresh rate. It also supports G-Sync for super-smooth variable refresh rate gaming, so rest assured it can play games at a crisp resolution and run next-gen titles fluidly.

The gaming monitor, according to its press release, is based on the same quantum dot technology Samsung utilizes in its 4K televisions. In Acer’s case, Predator X27 features its own 384 individually controlled LED zones which give deeper black levels and better colors. It also has impressive 178 degrees by 178 degrees viewing angles and a built-in Tobii eye-tracking hardware.

Apart from those, the Predator X27 also offers extreme brightness of up to 1,000 nits and supports 99 percent of Adobe RGB color space. Check out the basic Acer Predator X27 specifications below, courtesy of CNET.

Price & Release

Acer has not disclosed the pricing details at this point. But given the boatload of features specified, gamers can expect a hefty price for this one. Initial estimates reveal it will be more expensive than the predicted $2,000 of the XB272. The model in question is a 27-inch curved monitor Acer unveiled alongside X27. It is the first curve to incorporate the Tobii eye tracking technology.

The company has yet to reveal the official release date of its new monitors either. No estimate is currently available, but we’ll be sure to let you know here, at The Bitbag, once a new update arrives. In the meantime, tell us what you think of Acer Predator X27.
