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.
