Acer to join ASUS with a 2560x1440, 144Hz G-SYNC capable monitor

Acer to launch its own QHD 144Hz G-SYNC monitor early next year

Acer and ASUS have been the two big manufacturers standing behind NVIDIA's G-SYNC refresh rate technology, with Acer and its 4K 60Hz G-SYNC monitor, and ASUS and its 1440p 144Hz G-SYNC monitor, but according to new reports, Acer is preparing its own 2560x1440, or QHD 144Hz G-SYNC gaming monitor.




The QHD monitor would use the same AU Optronics 'M270Q002' panel that is baked into the ASUS ROG Swift, which means it'll bring along most of its features, too. So we should see Ultra-Low Motion Blur (ULMB), 8-bit color with 16.7 million colors, a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 350 nits of brightness, 170/160-degree viewing angles, and W-LED backlighting. Acer will provide its 'Eye Care' technology, which uses flicker free light, being better on your eyes.


We should see Acer unveil the monitor at CES 2015 in January I'd say, with a release schedule of Q1 2015.
