Nvidia loyalists may be despondent about the limited selection of monitors with Nvidia's G-Sync adaptive refresh technology compared to the seemingly geometrically-increasing number screens with the red team's competing FreeSync. Those folks can take some solace in Acer's release of the 24" Predator XB241YU 2560x1440 monitor.
The XB241YU has a standard refresh rate of 144Hz, which Acer says can be "overclocked" up to 165Hz. The company says the response time on the display's TN panel should ring in at 1ms, and that screen brightness can reach a maximum of 350 cd/m². Inputs are limited to DisplayPort and HDMI.
The monitor's housing is decorated in a gamer-bling black and red color scheme, with a bezel that Acer calls a "ZeroFrame" design. The stand has a swivel, and is also adjustable for both tilt and height. A fully-adjustable stand, a four-port USB hub, and a pair of 2W stereo speakers round out the Predator's feature set. The Predator XB241YU is available now for $500.
