Acer anuncia la sèrie XZ1 de monitors de jocs corbats FreeSync i curvats: VA WQHD, 144 Hz, HDR10 llest


Acer has announced two incoming budget-yet-premium gaming monitors to power AMD's FreeSync-supporting graphics cards. The new XZ1 series will come in 27' (XZ271U) and 31.5' (XZ321QU), thus appealing to two different market segments. The new monitors both sport a 144 Hz, 1 ms, 16:9 VA panel with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. Both are curved affairs; contrast stands at 3000:1; color coverage is at 85% of the NTSC color-space; and we're saying they are HDR10 ready because with their maximum brightness of 250 and 300 cd/m², respectively, they'll never be able to showcase the tiniest amount of HDR10 detail. Like the initial HD ready TVs which only supported 720p resolution but could process higher-density images, so does this HDR10 badge not mean there's an actual ability to properly display HDR10 content as it was meant to be.

La connectivitat es situa en 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 1x mini DisplayPort 1.2 i 2x capçaleres HDMI 2.0. Hi ha dos altaveus estèreo de 7 W i una presa per a auriculars a cada monitor, així com un concentrador USB 3.0 de tipus quad-port. Els estands poden inclinar entre -5 i 25 graus, girar +/- 25 graus i proporcionar ajustaments d'alçada de fins a 120 mm. Els dos plafons ja es poden comprar a Amazon.com, amb preus de 527 i 550 dòlars respectivament (no preus final al detall per a les Amèriques).
