On paper, Acer's X27 display has everything you want, plus a fan to cool the controller when you are displaying HDR content. The 144Hz GSYNC display is 4K and sports a DisplayHDR 1000 rating, but there are of course limitations. For instance 4:4:4 RGB at 4K is limited to 120Hz in the SDR and 98 Hz in HDR mode thanks to the bandwidth limits of DisplayPort, if you want to max out your refresh rete you are reduced to 4:2:2.
"Well, the Asus isn’t the only such monitor on the market. The new Acer Predator X27 uses the same AU Optronics panel, so they’re both equipped with the same specifications, but that doesn’t mean they perform the same as I’ll discuss a bit later."

We're one step closer to the official launch of G-SYNC HDR displays with the official announcement of a release window and pricing from ASUS for their PG27UQ 27" G-SYNC HDR Display. While the Acer Predator X27 was put up for pre-order last week and is set to ship on June 1st, this is the first indication of release details we have for the ASUS PG27UQ.
ASUS is touting the PG27UQ as the first "gaming monitor" to achieve VESA's DisplayHDR 1000 certification. While we've seen the announcement of another DisplayHDR 1000 monitor, the Phillips Momentum, it comes in at a TV-sized 43 inches.
DisplayHDR 1000 certification is achieved through the utilization of a 384-zone 1000cd/m2 peak brightness backlight as well as a quantum dot layer which allows the IPS panel to support 97% DCI-P3 and 99% AdobeRGB color gamut.
The PG27UQ also features ambient lighting controlled by their the ASUS Aura Sync software. A built-in ROG Light Signal will allow users to cast the ROG logo on the wall behind their monitor if they so choose.
The ASUS PG27UQ will be available in North America for a price of $1,999.99 starting in late June 2018.
