Acer has unveiled a host of new products in its expanding Predator and Nitro gaming portfolio with the launch of four new gaming monitors that bring games to life, a next-level gaming chair and a complete set of gaming gadgets. “Our battle-tested Predator gaming monitors have proven their quality and reliability as a top choice of pro-gamers and tournaments around the world,” said Victor Chien, President, Digital Display Business, Acer Inc. “We’re now waterfalling our experience and technology to our Nitro series to make premium gaming experiences more accessible to users.”
The Predator XB273K Monitor
The new Predator XB273K gaming monitor is for gamers looking for an incredible gaming experience. It brings games to life in ultra-high definition (3840×2160) immersion and features a rapid 144Hz refresh rate that provides wonderfully smooth images and tear-free gameplay when fast-moving objects buzz across the screen. NVIDIA G-SYNC eliminates screen tearing by adapting to the framerate of the outputting device, resulting in buttery smooth gameplay that offers an unparalleled gaming experience.
The IPS3 display panel features a wide colour gamut of 90% of the DCI-P3 colour space for vibrant colours that pop out and deeper blacks. For enhanced colour vibrancy, VESA DisplayHDR™ 400 certification ensures better contrast and colour accuracy so customers experience AAA games as they were meant to be. The Predator XB273K is ideal for users who want to be engrossed in gaming worlds.
The Acer Nitro XV273K Monitor
The new Acer Nitro XV273K monitor delivers extremely high refresh rates and ultra-high resolution, offering outstanding casual gameplay at affordable prices. These new IPS UHD monitors with AMD Radeon FreeSync satisfy gamers’ need for high-resolution gaming through a blazing fast response time of up to 1ms and Visual Response Boost (VRB) for smooth, tear-free gameplay that doesn’t break the bank.
The Acer Nitro XV273K 27 inch monitor delivers true-to-life colour, and resolutions of 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) for a totally immersive gaming experience with ultra-wide viewing angles. Boasting AMD Radeon FreeSync, the new Nitro monitors’ frames sync with the PC’s graphics cards to support dynamic refresh rates, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing lag. Integrated Visual- Response Boost (VRB) decreases blur in fast-moving images to achieve the effect of a 1ms MPRT (Moving Picture Response Time).
The Predator Thronos Gaming Chair
The all-new Predator Thronos reimagines the gaming chair for a new level of gamer. Its steel structure is 1.5 meters tall and comes in menacing dual-tone black with white or blue accents. It puts the gamer in the game through deep impact vibration, where the chair vibrates upon in-game impact. The chair is adjustable and includes an ergonomic seat design, footrest, and a cabin that reclines up to 140 degrees. The overhead brace supports three 27-inch gaming monitors and a space for a Predator gaming PC. Integrated with a Predator PC and triple Predator monitors plus gadgets, the Thronos becomes more than a gaming chair—it’s a gamer’s cave.
