Today (October 21, 2020), Acer has unveiled its latest gaming monitors. The Predator X34 GS is the likely headline here, as it combines a 34-inch 1900R panel, a UWQHD resolution and a new stand type in one. Then again, the 24.5-inch XB253Q GW is the one with the highest (280Hz) refresh rate here. There is also a new Nitro XV272U KV which offers some attractive specs for a decent price.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

Acer has introduced its latest Predator and Nitro monitors, some of which may appeal most to those who prefer gaming in WQHD or UWQHD. The new X34 GS boasts the latter (3440x1440) resolution, which is paired to a 180Hz refresh rate in a 1900R panel. Its maker asserts that its response time can go down to 0.5 milliseconds (ms) in Overdrive mode.

The Predator X34 GS covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut with NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility and a VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification. It shares these specs with the XB253Q GW, a flat FHD monitor with this new series' highest 280Hz rate. It also has the 34-inch model's minimum possible response rate, and boasts Acer's new Fast Liquid Crystal IPS technology on top of that.

Therefore, the OEM asserts that these 2 new Predators will acquit themselves well in first-person shooters or other action-heavy titles. They also have new and elaborately ergonomic stands, as well as an RGB accent strip along the bottom of the panel in the case of the B253Q GW.

The Nitro XV272U, on the other hand, may also be enough for some. It has a 27-inch Fast Liquid Crystal IPS panel with a WQHD (2560x1440) resolution. Acer has also packed it with its own range of goodies, which include a 1ms response time, a 170Hz refresh rate, 95% of the DCI-P3 gamut and a Delta-E value of less than 1.

Thisi monitor is also TÜV Rheinland- and Eyesafe-certified for blue-light safety. Finally, the XV272U has Acer's LightSense and ColorSense features, and will go for €499 (~US$592) when it is released in the first quarter of 2021 (1Q2021). The Predator B253Q GW will also be available during that quarter, and will cost €449 (~$533), whereas the X34 GS is slated to be on shelves by December 2020 at a price of €1099 (~$1304).

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
