Acer: new monitors, pre-assembled and portable

Acer: new monitors, pre-assembled and portable
Acer has presented some other novelties of its lineup between 2020 and 2021, once again taking advantage of the network to highlight some details of new computers and monitors that are included in the offer partially unveiled in October. The component that interests us most as gamers is that of gaming monitors, with six models divided into the Predator and Nitro lines, with the first aimed at those who also spend 2000 euros for a PC and the second designed for those who choose configurations between 800. and 1500 euros. Instead, the Concept D speaks to the creators, even if it is undoubtedly a device capable of giving great satisfaction in the game thanks to the RTX 3070. Instead, it is aimed at companies, albeit with more power under the hood of the previous series, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513, not surprisingly also available in a version with an Enterprise operating system.

The new Acer Predator gaming monitors

Arriving between December and January, the new Acer monitors include the Predator XB273U of the XB3 VisionCare line, a monitor with 2560x1440 resolution, 95% DCI-P3 color space coverage and 170Hz refresh, in overclocking, which looks at gaming with attention to visual comfort, thanks to the Eyesafe standard. In fact, it filters blue light and also adjusts settings based on ambient brightness using the LightSense, AdaptiveLight, ColorSense and ProxiSense technologies that make it peculiar in the panorama of gaming screens that will enrich in January with a recommended price of 549 euros.

Let's go back to 1080p, however popular with many competitive gamers, with the Predator XB253Q pushing up to 280Hz refresh, promising a half-millisecond gray-to-scream response time. Numbers from the TN panel for an IPS monitor that, while not focusing on extreme color coverage, is undoubtedly able to guarantee a better image than that of gaming monitors based on the old Twisted Nematic technology. Additionally, the package includes G-Sync support and responsive lighting designed to synchronize with the sound of music and games. However, it has a price that in January will start from the recommended figure of 449 euros.

Let's go back to the 2560X1440p but we remain in the field of monitors with an extreme refresh with the 270Hz of the Predator XB323U GX, a 32-inch with NVIDIA G-Sync and IPS is always assumed, even if the press release does not specify it, given the response time here too of 0.5 milliseconds. Also noteworthy is the 99% Adobe RGB color space coverage that allows you to use the monitor even in the field of video editing, making it versatile as it is gaming oriented. Of note, among other things, is the HDR600, limited but probably quite effective given the local dimming, and not even the high ergonomics that complete a potentially very interesting picture near Christmas, given the arrival on the market in December. , despite the not exactly low price of 999 euros.

With the Predator X34 GS we are faced with an ultra-wide option, obviously curved, which aims to offer wide horizons, engaging gaming experiences and space plenty to work with. Compatible with G-Sync technology, presumably thanks to Adaptive Sync, it combines the 3440x1440 format with a 180Hz refresh, always combined with a GtG response time of only 0.5 milliseconds. It is also the most bodied also from the point of view of colors, with a coverage of the DCI-P3 color space of 98%. It also does not lack all the ergonomic options, from rotation to tilt, and two 7W speakers that should be fairly powerful by completing the equipment of an inevitably expensive monitor, even if the price seems decidedly commensurate with prominent features. In fact, we are talking about € 1099 starting price, with the release set for December.

Gaming and more

For the cheaper Nitro series there are two options with the first, the Nitro XV272U, which still features remarkable features. We are talking about an overclocked 170Hz 2560x1440p IPS monitor that offers 95% DCI-P3 color space coverage. Among other things, the margin of error is low, with a Delta E <1, and the declared GtG response time is 1 millisecond. All this for 449 of starting price when it will be available, already in December.

Also in December we will also see the Nitro XV272, also 27-inch and always equipped with an Agile-Splendor IPS screen, but more limited in the resolution, which drops to the classic 1080p, and in color coverage, albeit still good, with a percentage of 90% of the DCI-P3 color space always coupled to a Delta E <1. It is therefore not surprising that even cheaper, it is still destined for a recommended price starting from 319 euros.

With 50% of users interested in versatile solutions capable of combining gaming and professional sphere, Acer has also focused strongly on the segment creator who in the ConceptD 300, arriving already during this month with a base price of 1999 euros, will find an object designed to marry design, high features and low noise, winking at professionals such as the architect. Specifically, we are talking about an 18-liter case, high-quality materials and ventilation capable of staying below the 40 decibel threshold. This while mounting 10th generation Intel Core i7, an RTX 3070 and 64GB of DDR4 memory at 2666MHz functional for professional use in editing or graphics in general. Among the options there is also the possibility to mount a mechanical disk up to 4 TB and a PCIe SSD up to 1TB. Finally, connectivity includes USB 3.2 ports, SD card reader, a Type-C port with support for the video signal and a 10G port. The ConceptD 7 and ConceptD 7 Pro notebooks have also been updated with the latest generation processors, Vortex Flow cooling and new features.

The last in line is the Chromebook Spin 513, arriving in different variants starting next January, with the basic model from 429 euros. The goal of the series is to combine the power of the latest CPUs with integrated graphics with the quality of the brand and the portability of the format, guaranteeing all the necessary functionalities to work comfortably on the move. The Enterprise version will arrive in February for 699 euros and during the first quarter of 2020 variants with LTE connectivity will also arrive, designed to guarantee 360-degree self-sufficiency. We are talking about audio for the Acer Halo speaker which in December will add a pinch of smart home and surround sound to the Acer lineup, taking the field with a recommended price of 119 euros.
