Acer has just joined the Large Format Gaming Display (LFGD) game with its new Predator CG437K P available in the US for $1499.
The new Acer Predator CG437K P is a larger-than-life 43-inch monitor with a native 4K resolution, so we're looking at 3840 x 2160, with a super-fast 144Hz refresh rate. Acer is also providing DisplayHDR 1000 certification on its VA panel, with the native 120Hz refresh overclockable to 144Hz.
Acer supports both NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync/Adaptive Sync with the Predator CG437K P, with G-SYNC supported over the DisplayPort cable while Adaptive Sync/FreeSync is offered over the HDMI connection if you want to plug in an Xbox One console.
It wouldn't be a new Large Format Gaming Display if it didn't have RGB lighting, right?! That's where Acer's new Predator CG437K P has four magnetic (you can take them off) LED light strips that can be programmed with up to 9 operating modes. Not bad.
We have 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, 2 x 10W speakers, 2 x DP 1.4 ports, 3 x HDMI ports, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, and a USB-C connector.
Acer's new Predator CG437K P is available now for $1499.
I've got the ASUS variant in my lab right now and have just moved houses (again), so expect my re view on that in the next week or so. It's a magical display, something that I thought I'd love when they were announced and now that it's on my desk... wowzers.
Acer's new one however, is 144Hz compared to 120Hz with ASUS -- something I want to try and have a side-by-side battle with in the coming months.
