Acer, a leading innovator in the world of gaming monitors, has recently announced the launch of its new OLED gaming monitors and ‘smart’ monitors equipped with Google TV. This exciting development was unveiled at Computex 2024 on May 31.

The new lineup includes three OLED gaming monitors: the Predator X27U F3, Predator X32 X3, and Predator X34 X5. Each model boasts impressive specifications designed to cater to the needs of gamers seeking high performance and stunning visuals.

The Predator X27U F3 is a standout with its 26.5-inch WQHD OLED display. It offers a remarkable 480Hz refresh rate. This makes it one of the fastest monitors on the market. Gamers can enjoy crisp visuals without sacrificing speed. The monitor also features a response time of 0.01ms. This ensures smooth and uninterrupted gameplay.

The Predator X32 X3 is a 31.5-inch 4K UHD OLED display. It combines a 240Hz refresh rate with a 0.03ms response time. This monitor provides an immersive gaming experience with its large screen and sharp resolution. Additionally, it offers dynamic frequency and resolution options. Gamers can choose between a 4K UHD at 240Hz or a full HD at 480Hz.

The Predator X34 X5 is a 34-inch ultrawide monitor. It features an OLED panel with a slight curvature. This enhances the gaming experience by providing a more immersive field of view. The monitor supports a UWQHD resolution, a 0.03 response time, and a 240Hz refresh rate.

These monitors are not only about speed and performance. They also deliver brilliant colors with 99% DCI-P3 color gamut support and true 10-bit depth. This reduces image banding. The monitors are compatible with both AMD FreeSync Premium™ Pro and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™. This eliminates stuttering, flicker, and visual artifacts for a smooth and tear-free experience.

In addition to the OLED gaming monitors, Acer has introduced a new series of smart monitors. These include the Acer DA1 and Nitro GA1 series. These monitors are designed to enhance productivity and provide entertainment options through Google TV.

The Acer DA1 Series offers screen sizes of 27- or 31.5-inch. They come with a 4K resolution at 60Hz. The monitors are perfect for work and entertainment. They feature Google TV. This gives users access to streaming apps like Netflix, Disney+, and more.

The Nitro GA1 Series monitors are available in the same sizes. They offer a QHD resolution with a higher refresh rate of 144Hz (HDMI) or 180Hz (DP). These monitors are ideal for gamers who need a high refresh rate and also want the benefits of a smart TV.

Acer’s smart monitors are equipped with various ports. These include HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4, and USB-C with 65W PD. They also have USB 2.0 ports and a 3.5mm audio out. The monitors support AdaptiveSync and AMD FreeSync (Nvidia G-Sync compatible). This ensures a tear-free gaming experience.

The introduction of these monitors marks a significant step forward for Acer. It showcases the company’s commitment to innovation. Acer is blending the lines between traditional gaming monitors and smart TVs. This provides consumers with versatile options that cater to both work and play.

The Predator X27U F3 will be available in North America in the third quarter of 2024 starting at $1,200. The Predator X32 X3 and Predator X34 X5 will arrive in the final quarter of 2024. The X32 X3 will be priced at $1,200 and up, and the curved X34 X5 will start at $1,100.
