Original news piece published 24 June 2020, now updated
Acer announced back in June 2020 their new Predator X25 gaming monitor. Following in the footsteps of displays like the Asus ROG Swift PG259QN that we have reviewed, the X25 will feature a 24.5″ size IPS panel, with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a 360Hz refresh rate. The screen uses a Native G-sync hardware module to support variable refresh rates. It’s response time performance will need to be very good to keep up with this super-high refresh rate. It is reported that the screen will also now feature NVIDIA’s Reflex Latency Analyzer technology as well.
Some other specs are provided by Acer for the X25 including a 0.3ms G2G minimum response time (take this with a pinch of salt of course), a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 16.7m colour depth and 99% sRGB colour gamut.
The Predator X25 can also adjust brightness and color temperature automatically based on environmental light. With LightSense, the Predator X25 detects the amount of ambient light in the viewing environment and automatically adjusts brightness settings to maximize viewing comfort. AdaptiveLight automatically adjusts the monitor’s backlights to suit the ambient light in the room, while ProxiSense reminds gamers to take a break after a set amount of time. The screen will also apparently come factory calibrated with a dE <1.
For connectivity there are expected to be 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 4x USB 3.0 ports and an audio out. There are also integrated speakers.
The Predator X25 was originally touted to be available in North America in November, starting at USD 1099.99; in EMEA in November starting at EUR 1,139; and in China in October, starting at RMB 7999. This has obviously not been achieved and we are waiting on an update on official release dates.
