Like the Nitro model above, it also has a wide color gamut coverage of 90 percent DCI-P3. First up is the Predator XB323QK NV, a 31.5-inch refresh of one of our favorite monitors of the past few years, the Editors' Choice Acer Predator XB3. VisionCare 4.0 provides a mix of technologies including; LightSesnse brightness adjustment, AdaptiveLight, ColorSense, and ProxiSense.

If you've moved beyond 1440p, Acer also unveiled a pair of 4K displays with speedy 144Hz refresh rates.

Both are among the first monitors in the world to be TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe certified.

This sort of monitor is built for no-compromises twitch gaming, and as such, Acer baked in Nvidia's new Reflex Latency Analyzer technology. The 27-inch monitor comes with a WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS panel along with a 240Hz refresh rate that can be overclocked to 275Hz, and a 0.5ms response time (G to G), for an immersive and smooth experience. On top of the buttery smooth visuals that this technology entails, games look pleasantly vivid with the vibrant range of colors offered by the monitor's DCI-P3 90% Wide Color Gamut.

It supports HDMI 2.1 and VisionCare 3.0 with a TUV Rheinland Eyesafe certification so there's less strain on your eyes while gaming over longer periods of time. It also features Acer Agile Splendor IPS and VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification.

With the Chromebook Spink 514 being a suitable device for possible users who would then be inclined on working form home because of the "new normal", or by just streaming different kinds of content, Acer would also offer new monitors which are more induced for gaming purposes.
