Acer has added a quartet of G-Sync monitors to its Predator lineup at IFA in Berlin.
The Predator XB1 series consists of a trio of models. The XB271HK and XB271HU each have IPS displays that Acer claims can reproduce 100% of the sRGB spectrum. The XB271HK has a 4K panel, while the XB271HU has a 2560x1440 pixel array that supports refresh rates up to 144Hz. The third XB1 display is the 28" XB281HK, which has a 4K panel with a 1-millisecond gray-to-gray response time, which probably indicates it's a TN panel. Acer says all three Predator XB1 models have "edge-to-edge" displays with thin bezels.
Acer also popped the cork on a 35" 21:9 monitor, the Predator Z35. This display has a relatively low 2560x1080 resolution, good for 80 PPI. Given its size, you'll probably want to sit back and play, anyway, so the low PPI might not be so big a deal. Acer claims that the Predator Z35 can be overclocked up to refresh rates as high as 200Hz. An LED array below the screen can light up the display's surroundings.
These monitors should be available soon. The Predator XB1 monitors will start at $799 when they arrive in November, while the Predator Z35 will be $1199 when it debuts in December.
