Acer kunngjør XZ1-serien med FreeSync, buede spillmonitorer - VA WQHD, 144 Hz, HDR10 Ready



Acer has announced two incoming budget-yet-premium gaming monitors to power AMD's FreeSync-supporting graphics cards. The new XZ1 series will come in 27' (XZ271U) and 31.5' (XZ321QU), thus appealing to two different market segments. The new monitors both sport a 144 Hz, 1 ms, 16:9 VA panel with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. Both are curved affairs; contrast stands at 3000:1; color coverage is at 85% of the NTSC color-space; and we're saying they are HDR10 ready because with their maximum brightness of 250 and 300 cd/m², respectively, they'll never be able to showcase the tiniest amount of HDR10 detail. Like the initial HD ready TVs which only supported 720p resolution but could process higher-density images, so does this HDR10 badge not mean there's an actual ability to properly display HDR10 content as it was meant to be.

Tilkoblingen står på 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 1x mini DisplayPort 1.2 og 2x HDMI 2.0-headere. Det er to 7 W stereohøyttalere og en hodetelefonkontakt i hver skjerm, i tillegg til en USB-type med USB-type Type A A med fire porter. Stativene kan vippe mellom -5 til 25 grader, svinge +/- 25 grader, og gi høydejusteringer på opptil 120 mm. Begge paneler kan nå kjøpes på Amazon.com, med priser satt til henholdsvis $ 527 og $ 550 (ikke endelig detaljhandelspris for Amerika).
