Acer Announces XG270HU Monitor with Freesync


The Acer XG270HU gaming monitor with AMD FreeSync technology and support for AMD Radeon R-Series GPU eliminates screen tearing and stuttering to offer users an ultra-smooth gaming experience. This 27-inch monitor also comes with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, a fast 144Hz refresh rate, and an edge-to-edge frameless design for enhanced gaming performance and seamless viewing.

With FreeSync technology, the XG270HU monitor's frames are synced with the graphics card's frames to eliminate screen tearing and stuttering. This technology minimizes lag and latency, thereby offering ultra-smooth action sequences that are essential for enjoying the latest games. The XG270HU's edge-to-edge frameless display maximizes the viewing area and affords a seamless viewing experience for multi-monitor setups. Its fast 1ms response time assures that actions or dramatic transitions will be rendered smoothly without smearing or ghosting effects.

The XG270HU is adorned with Acer's characteristic gaming visual identity with a bold orange strip along the bottom horizontal frame and outlines the base stand. For easy connectivity, the monitor includes HDMI 2.0, dual-link DVI, DisplayPort 1.2, and 2 x 2W speakers.

To reduce eye strain and potential eye damage from prolonged viewing, the XG270HU is built with Acer EyeProtect technologies. This includes flicker-less technology that eliminates screen flicker through a stable supply of power; ComfyView which reduces reflection from ambient light sources on the non-glare panel, low-dimming technology that adjusts screen brightness when working in non-optimal lighting conditions, and a blue light filter to reduce blue light exposure.


My Thoughts

This monitor is currently available for Pre-Order on Overclockers uk with the price tag of £429.95, which is exceptionally cheap for a 1440p monitor with adaptive framerate capabilities.

To compare to 1440p 144Hz G-Sync monitors, Acer's own Predator XB270HU is currently selling for £689.99 ans ASUS' ROG Swift monitor is currently selling for £629.99. This gives this monitor an exceptional value proposition as Acer's 1080p 144Hz 27" G-Sync monitor, the Acer Predator XB270HA is currently £389.99, only £40 cheaper than the 1440p 144Hz FreeSync monitor.

Right now FreeSync monitors look like they will be very price competitive compared to Nvidia's G-Sync, we at OC3D really look forward to seeing how the monitor market evolves over the coming months as FreeSync monitors become readily available.
