360Hz refresh rates are sooo last year, at least to Acer! We reviewed the first 360Hz monitor to market last September, the Asus ROG Swift PG259QN and were impressed by its gaming performance and high refresh rate capability for high-end gaming and e-Sports users. Acer are now planning to launch the Nitro XV252Q F which takes things a step further, featuring the same sized panel and similar specs to the 360Hz models but offering an overclocking feature up to 390Hz refresh rate.
XV252Q F Specs
Spec wise the new screen offers a 24.5″ sized IPS panel with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 1ms G2G response time (0.5ms minimum also quoted), 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 8-bit colour depth and a standard 99% sRGB colour gamut.
The panel has a native 360Hz refresh rate and supports a decent overclock up to 390Hz. This is supported by adaptive-sync giving VRR support from both NVIDIA and AMD systems. It is expected to carry the FreeSync Premium certification, not clear if any G-sync certifications will be awarded. There is also an added Visual Response Boost (VRB) blur reduction backlight mode available although not at the same time as VRR unfortunately.
For connectivity there is 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0 and a headphone jack provided. There are also 2x 2W integrated speakers and the stand offers tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments.
The monitor is expected to retail for around ~€530, more info on pricing and availability when we get it.
