Predator X25 monitor
The Predator X25 is a 24.5-inch 1920 x 1080 monitor that boasts a blazing fast 360Hz refresh rate and Nvidia G-SYNC capabilities. The Predator X25 can also adjust its 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 its 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.
Predator XB3 Series monitors
In addition to the X25, Acer is launching four Predator XB3 series monitors: the 31.5-inch Predator XB323QK NV, the 27-inch Predator XB273U GS and Predator XB273U GX, plus the 24.5-inch Predator XB253Q GZ. All four are certified as Nvidia G-SYNC compatible with up to 240Hz refresh rate and up to 4K UHD resolution.
The new line of monitors delivers silky-smooth gameplay and wide 178-degree viewing angles. DisplayHDR 400 supports stunningly bright images with high contrast and color accuracy, while up to 0.5ms (G to G) response time in overdrive drastically reduces motion blur in fast-moving images. The new line includes Acer AdaptiveLight, helping gamers stay comfortable during long gaming sessions. All are ergonomically designed, 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.
