Acer refreshes its Predator gaming monitors

Acer unveils its new Predator Z271T and Predator XB271HUT gaming monitors

Acer unveiled two new Predator gaming displays at IFA 2016, with the Predator Z271T and Predator XB271HUT both being gaming displays with 144Hz refresh rates and NVIDIA G-Sync technology.


Starting with the Predator Z271T, we have a curved 27-inch, VA-based panel with a native resolution of 1920x1080. The Z271T has a 144Hz refresh rate and 4ms response time, with 8-bit color depth, 3000:1 contrast ratio, and 2 x 7W built-in speakers. We have DisplayPort and HDMI connectivity, too.


Acer's new Predator XXB271HUT kicks things up a notch, with a 27-inch flat TN-based panel and a native resolution of 2560x1440. We have a 1ms response time and 144Hz refresh rate, with 8-bit color depth and 1000:1 contrast ratio. Acer also includes 2 x 2W built-in speakers, you know - just in case.

Acer has worked with NVIDIA and used its G-Sync technology for a while now, with both of the new Predator monitors featuring G-Sync technology sprinkled on top of the 144Hz refresh rate. Both of the new Predator monitors also feature Tobii eye-tracking technology, which will have support in the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and has already reached gamers in Assassin's Creed, and The Division.
