We brought you news about a couple of the most exciting new models from Acer showcased at IFA this year, the 27″ XV273 X and 24.5″ XV253Q X with 1080p 240Hz refresh rate IPS panels, some of the first models to market with this high a refresh rate from IPS panel technology.
There were also a couple of other models showcased which are also interesting and part of their Nitro gaming lineup – the 27″ XV273U S and 24.5″ XV253Q P. These models have a lower refresh rate (165Hz and 144Hz respectively), but still fall in to the bracket of high refresh rate displays and are worth looking at.
The Nitro XV273U S is 27″ in size and offers a 2560 x 1440 resolution IPS panel, native 144Hz and overclocked 165Hz refresh rate. The Nitro XV253Q P on the other hand is smaller at 24.5″ and has a lower 1920 x 1080 resolution with 144Hz refresh rate.
NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible, the new Nitro monitors enable Variable Refresh Rates (VRR) by default when connected to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series and GeForce RTX 20-Series graphics cards to support dynamic refresh rates, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing lag. These new IPS monitors also feature Adaptive-Sync technology to satisfy gamers’ need for high resolution gaming through a blisteringly fast response time of up to 1ms and Visual Response Boost (VRB) for smooth, tear-free gameplay.
The Nitro XV3 series feature Acer’s latest Agile-Splendor technology, which utilizes panels with both fast liquid crystals as well as 99% sRGB wide color gamuts.
Both monitors feature Acer Game Mode, eight preset display modes to optimize the visuals for different types of content: Action, Racing, Sport, User, Standard, ECO, Graphic and Movie. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu. The built-in black boost enables gamers to select from 11 black level options to optimize visual advantage and clearly spot enemies, duck for cover, or navigate curves on a race track.
Acer VisionCare™ with Flickerless, BlueLightShield, ComfyView and low-dimming technologies make viewing more comfortable during long periods of gaming. The Acer Nitro XV3 series also has an ergonomically-designed stand with 20° swivel and tilt so gamers can always find that ideal viewing position. A quick-release design lets you separate the monitor from its stand so it can be VESA wall-mounted to free up desk space.
The Acer Nitro XV273U S will be available in January 2020 in EMEA starting at EUR 649; in North America starting at USD 589; and in China starting at RMB 4,129. Pricing and availability for the 24.5″ XV253Q P was not provided. More info on this and specs when we get it.
