Why is HDMI 2.1 important? Because HDMI 2.1 supports 4K 120Hz over a single cable, something that is required here for high-res monitors over HDMI. The new Acer XV282K KV is a 28-inch IPS-based 4K monitor with a native 144Hz refresh rate.

Acer is providing 1 x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC support to drive 4K 144Hz) as well as 2 x HDMI 2.1 connectors which will be perfect for NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 30 series (which has HDMI 2.1 connectivity), AMD's upcoming Big Navi graphics cards, and the next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

We have VESA HDR600 certification, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, dual 2W speakers, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

We're looking at a price of around $1250 for the Acer XV282K KV, which is pretty hefty considering you can get damn fine alternatives like a huge 43-inch ASUS ROG Strix XG438Q (4K 120Hz HDR600) for $1100.
