Today Acer announced the expansion of its Predator gaming monitor lineup with two new series featuring NVIDIA® G-SYNC™, namely the curved Predator Z and the flat-panel Predator XB1. Providing a best-in-class gaming experience inside-and-out, both series build on Acer’s industry-leading display technology, which has been widely praised by gamers worldwide, combined with bold and angular Acer Predator design language and bright red accents.
Curved Gaming at Full Throttle: Predator Z35
The Predator Z35 is the first product of Acer’s Predator Z Series curved gaming monitors with NVIDIA® G-SYNC™. Its 35-inch 21:9 UltraWide Full HD (2560x1080) panel features a curvature of 2000R for immersive, wraparound gaming. The Predator Z35 incorporates NVIDIA® ULMB™ (Ultra Low Motion Blur) technology1, reducing motion blur by delivering sharp edges in fast-paced gaming environments. It also supports overclocking to a lightning-fast 200Hz refresh rate, so gamers can find their enemies before they spot them and enjoy crystal clear turns on the racetrack, and features powerful audio with DTS® Sound, 9Wx2 speakers and Acer TrueHarmony technology.
Pixel-Perfect for a Competitive Edge: Predator XB1
The Predator XB1 Series features the latest NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology, giving gamers an advantage with incredibly detailed images and smooth visuals. The 27-inch models (XB271HK / XB271HU) feature a ZeroFrame edge-to-edge design with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) or WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS panels that support 100% of the sRGB color gamut, while the XB271HU supports NVIDIA® ULMB™ and refresh rates of up to 144Hz. The 28-inch model (XB281HK) features a 4K UHD panel that has a fast GTG (gray to gray) response time of 1ms, rendering fast-moving actions or dramatic transitions smoothly without smearing or ghosting.
In-Game Advantage with GameView
The new Predator gaming monitors feature GameView technology, which allows gamers to swiftly toggle between three customizable display profiles, tweaking settings such as Dark Boost, Overclock, and aim-point assistance to suit a wide gamut of games. It allows quick display adjustment while in-game without the need to navigate through layers of OSD menus, a significant advantage when every split second counts.
