Acer announced yesterday their forthcoming Predator XB323QK NV display which is 31.5″ in size and features a 3840 x 2160 (“4K”) resolution IPS panel combined with a high refresh rate of 144Hz. Adaptive-Sync is supported for variable refresh rates, including ‘G-sync Compatible Mode’ (certification pending) and AMD FreeSync, with an assumed 48 – 144Hz (plus LFC) variable refresh rate range.
In other specs the screen offers a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 8-bit+FRC colour depth and 90% DCI-P3 wide colour gamut. An “up to 0.5ms G2G” response time is listed in the press release for the new Predator XB3 series in general so we assume this model will have that spec too – although to be taken with a big pinch of salt of course in reality.
There are DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB type-C, 4x USB 3.0 and an audio output connections provided. The new line includes Acer Adaptive light, helping gamers stay comfortable during long gaming sessions with a stand that features tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment. RGB LightSense lets gamers choose a variety of different lighting effects, including color, speed, duration and brightness, which can be set to react to gameplay, music, or video.
The XB323QK NV is expected to be available in Europe from August 2020 and North America from September 2020. No word on pricing yet, more info when we get it.
