Acer delays their 4K 144Hz HDR X27 G-Sync display until 2018

 
Acer announced that their Predator X27 4K 144Hz HDR Ultra display will be released in 2018, which means that consumers will be unable to buy Acer's latest Quantum Dot display with Nvidia's G-Sync HDR technology until next year. 


The X27 is one of the world's first displays to fully utilise DisplayPort 1.4, offering support for HDR10, 4K resolutions and an ultra high 144Hz refresh rates. Thanks to the displays dynamic backlight ultra deep blacks are possible as well as ultra bright images, making this a true HDR display which offers full support for the modern standard.

This display also comes with Tobii Eye Tracking, allowing your PC to know exactly where your eyes are focusing on inside supported games, allowing you to interact with the environment faster and potentially gain an advantage over your opponents without even clicking a button. Sadly this feature is not supported by many games, but it is available on some of today's most popular titles.

 

This display is designed to get the most out of High Dynamic Range content (HDR), with a maximum brightness of 1000 nits and 384 dynamic backlight areas, allowing this display to deliver unparalleled levels of contrast and allow both bright and dark content to be equally visible on this 4K monitor. 

The Predator Z27 will also come with a refresh rate of 144Hz, using the full bandwidth of DisplayPort 1.4 to provide both a high resolution and a fast refresh rate, delivering gamers the best of both worlds. 

 

  

At this time the exact pricing and release date of this display is unknown, though it has been confirmed that this display will launch in 2018.

Good thing anyway as there isn't a GPU out yet that can nicely power 4K 144Hz.Quote

Well maybe they should've though of before actually going into making reality of the idea?

This isn't surprising though, since they seem to like postponing their monitors, as they did the same with the Predator X34P.Quote

People in my experience hold onto monitors longer than most other bits of hardware so 4K 144hz will be relevant for a very long time yet, despite that obvious issue that nothing can really power it to it's full potential yet.

I'd rather a product be delayed a few months and be quality than released early and full of glitches. Think back to the first line of Swift monitors and how many people complained about those.Quote

It's still 27", which is still too small for 4K. Sigh, when will they learn.Quote
