Acer has shown this week its new 4K monitor Predator XB280HK at gamescom 2014 in Cologne. The 28-inch display supports Nvidia G-Sync technology, which games should always be shown smoothly even with fluctuating frame rates. From the end of September 2014 Acer wants to sell the XB280HK also in Germany.
Originally Acer had roughly the second quarter of 2014 as specified delivery date for his new, particularly high-resolution screen. But this time window could not quite keep the Taiwanese manufacturer, which possibly may be due to the XB280HK to be sold at an aggressive price point. Acer’s recommended retail price is 599 euros, which the monitor with G-Sync support costs only slightly more than similar models without the Nvidia technology.
The Predator XB280HK offers a 28-inch TN panel with UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, which works internally with a refresh rate of 144 Hertz. Thanks G-Sync technology, the refresh rate is, however, dynamically adapted to the currently achieved frame rate of the graphics card while playing, what is to prevent unsightly image artifacts and stuttering.
The new 4K monitor from Acer via display port and the device is connected to the graphics card provides four additional USB 3.0 ports. The manufacturer also highlights that the display surface is dull and the entire screen height adjustable and can be rotated to portrait mode. An efficient power supply that comes with the Acer Predator XB280HK also intended to compensate voltage fluctuations and reduce flicker.
