Acer is really kicking some serious ass in the gaming display market, where it will continue to do so with the new Predator XB1 series coming later this month. The last Acer monitor we reviewed was the 34-inch FreeSync-capable CR341CK which we fell in love with.

There will be two models, but both of them are 27-inch displays - one features a 2560x1440 resolution while the other is a 4K display. The 2560x1440 model has a refresh rate of 144Hz while the 4K model sits at 60Hz - both monitors feature NVIDIA's G-Sync technology. Both displays also include HDMI and DisplayPort connectivity, as well as four USB 3.0 ports.

The Predator XB271HU is the 2560x1440 model, priced at $799 while the Predator XB271HK rocks its 4K resolution and a $100 premium at $899. Both monitors will be available later this month.
