4K monitors are great and all, but you need some serious horsepower to drive 60FPS on them at 3840x2160. NVIDIA's G-SYNC is the perfect technology to help that, with Acer unveiling its new XBO series of monitors, with the first being the XB280HK, a 28-inch 4K-capable monitor at 60Hz, with NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology.

The other, is the XB270H, which is a 27-inch monitor with a Full HD resolution, but a 144Hz refresh rate. Both displays have a 1ms response time, NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology, "comfortable ergonomics and excellent connectivity". Both of the new XBO series displays feature DisplayPort connectivity, and multiple USB 3.0 ports.
