Gaming monitors usually focus more on fast refresh rates and low response times with color accuracy and high resolutions being mostly an afterthought. The latter are the realm of monitors that cater to creative pros who generally prefer color accuracy and details over high refresh rates. Acer seem to have taken cognizance of this fact and has introduced three new Predator monitors with a host of features that should please both enthusiast gamers and a majority of creative pros alike.

Predator CG552K

The Predator CG552K is a 55-inch 4K OLED panel with VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification. The CG552K offers a fast 144 Hz refresh rate and a 0.5 ms GTG response time making it ideal for fast-paced PC and console games. It also supports HDMI variable refresh rate (VRR) and Adaptive Sync for smooth, tear-free visuals. Acer is touting the Predator CG552K as a highly color-accurate display with a delta E<1 and 98.5% DCI-P3 coverage. Connectivity options include three HDMI 2.0, two DisplayPort, one USB Type-C, two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports. The panel also features two 10W speakers, customizable light bars, ambient light sensor, and a proximity sensor to switch automatically between power and standby modes. 

The Predator CG552K is expected to be available in Q3 for US$2,999.

Predator X32

The Predator X32 is a 32-inch 4K NVIDIA G-Sync Ultimate 10-bit IPS display that supports local dimming with 1,152 zones and is VESA DisplayHDR 1400-certified with a peak brightness of 1440 nits. Acer is targeting the Predator X32 at streamers with the monitor covering 99% of Adobe RGB and 89.5% of Rec.2020 color spaces, while offering a smooth 144 Hz refresh rate with wide 178-degree viewing angles. The monitor supports HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 1.4, and three USB 3.0 connections, and also includes two 4W speakers. 

All these specs come at a high asking price with the Predator X32 expected to be available in Q2 for US$3,599.

Predator X38

The Predator X38 is a 37.5-inch UWQHD+ 2300R curved G-Sync panel that is DisplayHDR 400-certified.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
