Predator X27

The Predator X27 seems to have found a great balance between image quality and speed. At the very least, it is the first 4K monitor with HDR support running at 144Hz. It also supports G-Sync for smooth game play with compatible Nvidia GeForce graphics cards and GPUs.

If it's brightness you crave, the Predator X27 is rated to hit 1,000 nits courtesy of 384 individually controlled LED zones. Most monitors offer a brightness level of between 250 and 350 nits.

Beyond the brightness level, Acer says its panel offers up 99 percent coverage of the sRGB color space. It also features Quantum Dot enhancement film technology, 178-degree viewing angles, Nvidia's ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur) technology, and Tobii eye-tracking technology.

This ULMB with FALD is going to be VERY exciting! :shock:

Pretty exciting.
Eye tracking is an interesting feature to add. I wonder how much this will cost.

The 4K 144Hz scanning-backlight locally-dimmed monitors will be exciting to see arrive on the market!

- Acer Predator X27

This is going to require mondoo GPU power for good-looking blur reduction. I hope they keep them capable of ultra-short strobe lengths, with all that extra nits -- because 4K is going to benefit much more hugely from <0.5ms MPRT persistence capability. At 144 strobes per second and 1000 nits, you can get a comfortable (for gaming at night) a whopping 100 nits at 0.69ms persistence (6.9ms refresh cycle = 0.69ms strobe flash for 90% motion blur reduction). Scanning-backlight light leakage between segments will fudge this around somewhat and lower efficiencies, but hopefully not too much. And if you want 300 nits during ULMB, that's plenty bright for daytime gaming.

(Remember, readers, MPRT(persistence) is different from GtG(response), even though they are milliseconds measurements. MPRT can be faster than GtG -- breaking the GtG barrier, essentially -- since strobe-based blur reduction means GtG is kept in dark in a different phase of the refresh cycle, and MPRT is the strobe pulse width as the visible part of refresh cycle which can be shorter than GtG)
