Acer is a well-known brand in the computer market. In particular, it offers screens. Here is also a new reference, cut this time for gamers … on console.
Acer is a well-known brand in the computer world. We owe him computers, desktop or laptop, but also a number of peripherals. Including screens. It’s the latter category of interest to us today with the announcement of a new monitor that may appeal to gamers. But not necessarily to PC gamers, more to console gamers.
Acer unveils monitor for console gamers
When we think of video games on console, the most classic configuration is certainly one in which the console is plugged into a television. This is explained in particular by the larger screen diagonal – compared to the asking price for the same diagonal on a PC screen – but also by the fact that consoles are more designed to be used in a living room, precisely near the television. .
With HDMI 2.1 to be able to play in 4K at 120 fps
That being said, if you are playing in your bedroom or in a room that is not large enough to accommodate a large screen, you might be interested to learn that Acer has just announced the entrance to its catalog of a new benchmark, the Nitro XV282K KV, a monitor that specifically targets console gamers. Its main feature is to be compatible with the HDMI 2.1. This will allow gamers to enjoy their games in 4K and 120 fps.
HDMI 2.1 is a fairly common feature in the television market today but still too rare in the computer monitor market. It’s a good thing to see Acer entering this niche. And even if you’re not gaming on a console, the Acer Nitro XV282K KV is still a pretty good display. With a diagonal of 28 inches, a definition of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, a refresh rate of 144 Hz, a DCI-P3 color gamut coverage of 90%.
This Acer Nitro XV282K KV monitor will retail for $ 900, which is not that expensive after all given these specifications. Especially since it is compatible with AMD FreeSync Premium technology. The screen should be available sometime in May. Still a little patience.
