Acer have announced the release of their new CP5271U V display in their ‘ConceptD’ range. The naming convention is a little unclear with these new models, but it’s in the CP-5 series and is then 27″ in size. The screen is aimed at both designers and gamers, with a focus on a fairly unique and unusual design. There is a plastic base with wood-grain effect and a contrasting cylindrical silver-coloured stand. The screen has a detachable shading hood as well.
The 27″ sized screen is based on an IPS-type panel offering a 2560 x 1440 resolution. Spec wise the screen offers a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness (600 cd/m2 peak for HDR) 178/178 viewing angles.
For colour accuracy the screen comes factory calibrated offering a DeltaE <2 (<1 according to some material) and includes Pantone validation, 10-bit colour depth support and programmable hardware 3D LUTs for enhanced accuracy and precision. Quantum Dot backlighting is used to offer a wide gamut covering 99% Adobe RGB.
For gaming requirements there is also an overclocked 170Hz refresh rate for gaming needs, supported by adaptive-sync for VRR from both AMD and NVIDIA systems. The response time spec is almost certainly pure marketing with a 0.7ms G2G figure quoted. Take that with a pinch of salt.
HDR is supported to a reasonable level thanks to the VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification, ensuring some form of local dimming backlight is available, and offering peak brightness of up to 600 cd/m2. The screen also has the wide colour gamut and 10-bit colour depth support for colour improvements for this kind of usage.
The stand offers tilt, height and swivel adjustments. For connectivity there are 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.0, 1x USB-C (65W PD and DP Alt Mode), 4x USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5mm audio output. The screen also includes 2 x 4W speakers. There is also an ambient light sensor feature included.
It’s currently listed on this page from Chinese shopping website Taobao at an expected price of ~5000 Chinese Yuan (~$700 USD) with availability expected mid June 2020. More news on regional pricing and release when we get it.
