When Acer announced the XG270HU at CES last month, the company billed it as the "world's first gaming monitor with an edge-to-edge frameless display." But Acer neglected to mention the display's trump card: support for FreeSync adaptive-refresh mojo. That omission has now been rectified in a new announcement that plays up the FreeSync support.
Along with the thin bezel and adaptive refresh, the XG270HU features a 27" panel with a 2560x1440 resolution, 1-ms response time, and 144Hz peak refresh rate. Acer doesn't mention the panel technology, which tells me it's probably TN, especially considering the low response. Inputs include HDMI 2.0, dual-link DVI, and DisplayPort 1.2—and the monitor even has a pair of 2W speakers, in case your sound system is on the fritz.
