Acer rolls out new XBO monitors with 4K resolution and more

There are two new technologies that shape the world of monitors and they are 4K and NVIDIA G-SYNC. Unfortunately in most cases you end up with the first or the second technology and not both.

This isn’t going to happen if you choose the hot new Acer 28-inch XB270H monitor that combines both 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) and NVIDIA G-SYNC along with a 60 Hz refresh rate and a fast 1 ms response time. The new Acer device is accompanied by the XB270H monitor, which is its smaller sibling that offers 27-inches of size, Full HD resolution and 144 Hz of refresh rate. The XB270H also has a 1 ms response time and NVIDIA G-SYNC.

“We’re excited to bring these first-rate gaming displays to gamers in the United States and Canada,” said Ronald Lau, Acer America business manager. “The incredibly sharp and smooth images provided by NVIDIA G-SYNC technology are sure to thrill the most avid gamers. Combined with Acer’s highly flexibly ergonomic stand, non-glare ComfyView panel and low dimming technology, users are assured long hours of both comfortable and visually stunning game play.”

In case you do not know what G-SYNC is, here’s what it does – it makes sure that frames rendered by the GPU are synchronized with the monitor’s refresh rate. This eliminates screen tearing and minimizes display stutter and input lag for an overall smooth and fast gaming experience without dealing with any complicated monitor settings.

Both of Acer’s XBO monitors sport a multi-function ErgoStand that tilts from -5 to -35 degrees, is height adjustable by 5.9 inches, and rotates 120 degrees from left to right. It also pivots from horizontal to vertical (landscape to portrait).

The new Acer XB270H is now available for USD 599 MSRP, while the XB280HK will arrive in October for USD 799 MSRP.
