Acer announced yesterday their new Predator X25 gaming monitor. Following in the footsteps of Asus and Dell who have previously announced similar models of their own, the X25 will feature a 24.5″ size IPS panel, with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a 360Hz refresh rate. The screen uses a Native G-sync hardware module to support variable refresh rates. It’s response time performance will need to be very good to keep up with this super-high refresh rate.
Some other specs are provided by Acer for the X25 including a 400 cd/m2 brightness, 16.7m colour depth and 99% sRGB colour gamut. The Predator X25 can also adjust brightness and color temperature automatically based on environmental light. With LightSense, the Predator X25 detects the amount of ambient light in the viewing environment and automatically adjusts brightness settings to maximize viewing comfort. AdaptiveLight automatically adjusts the monitor’s backlights to suit the ambient light in the room, while ProxiSense reminds gamers to take a break after a set amount of time. Ergonomic, the monitor is adjustable with -5 to -25 degree tilt, +/- 30 degree swivel, up to 4.7 inch height adjustment and +/- 90 degree pivot.
For connectivity there are expected to be 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 4x USB 3.0 ports and an audio out.
The Predator X25 will be available in North America in November, starting at USD 1099.99; in EMEA in November starting at EUR 1,139; and in China in October, starting at RMB 7999.
