Acer Predator X38 S improves upon the original Predator X38 with VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification and built-in NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer
Alongside the Predator CG437K S, Acer also showed off the Predator X38 S gaming monitor at its next@acer event earlier this week. The Predator X38 S is a successor to the Predator X38 that was launched during CES 2020 as the world's first UWQHD+ monitor (3,840 x 1,600) and a 175 Hz refresh rate.
The Predator X38 S is pretty much the same model as the Predator X38 but with a few changes. This year, the Predator X38 S gets VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification and comes with the built-in NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer that can measure system latency from the time the mouse is clicked to the time the character reacts on the screen.
The rest of the specifications are identical to the last gen Predator X38. This includes the 37.5-inch 2300R curvature UWQHD+ panel with 98% DCI-P3 gamut coverage, a delta E of less than 2 for accurate color reproduction, and an overclocked 175 Hz refresh rate. The Predator X38 S offers a 0.3 ms gray-to-gray response time to prevent ghosting in high-paced scenes.
The Acer Predator X38 S also comes with a decent software suite to make the most of the hardware. This includes Predator Game Mode that offers eight presets to cater to different content types, Acer LightSense to make automatic brightness adjustments, and AcerColor Sense for automatic color temperature adjustments depending on ambient lighting. The monitor offers NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultimate to eliminate screen tearing and also comes with a G-SYNC eSports mode that ensures the lowest possible latency. G-SYNC eSports mode turns off the variable backlight and increases black levels to better distinguish objects in dark areas.
The Acer Predator X38 S will be available in China in July starting at RMB 14,999 and in North America and EMEA in September starting at US$1,999.99 and €2,199, respectively.
