Acer oznamuje série XZ1 FreeSync, Curved Gaming Monitors - VA WQHD, 144 Hz, HDR10 Ready

Acer has announced two incoming budget-yet-premium gaming monitors to power AMD's FreeSync-supporting graphics cards. The new XZ1 series will come in 27' (XZ271U) and 31.5' (XZ321QU), thus appealing to two different market segments. The new monitors both sport a 144 Hz, 1 ms, 16:9 VA panel with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. Both are curved affairs; contrast stands at 3000:1; color coverage is at 85% of the NTSC color-space; and we're saying they are HDR10 ready because with their maximum brightness of 250 and 300 cd/m², respectively, they'll never be able to showcase the tiniest amount of HDR10 detail. Like the initial HD ready TVs which only supported 720p resolution but could process higher-density images, so does this HDR10 badge not mean there's an actual ability to properly display HDR10 content as it was meant to be.

Konektivita je na 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 1x mini DisplayPort 1.2 a 2x HDMI 2.0 záhlaví. Na každém monitoru jsou dva 7 W stereofonní reproduktory a konektor pro sluchátka, stejně jako rozbočovač USB 3.0 Type-A pro čtyřport. Stojany se mohou naklápět o -5 až 25 stupňů, natáčet o +/- 25 stupňů a zajišťovat nastavení výšky až 120 mm. Oba panely lze nyní zakoupit na, přičemž ceny jsou stanoveny na 527 USD a 550 USD (nikoli na konečné maloobchodní ceny pro Ameriku). Sources: via AnandTech, Acer XZ271U, Acer XZ321QU
