Acer announced two new series of IPS displays in their recent press conference, the 4k Nitro VG0 and 1080p Nitro RG0.  The VG0 is available in 21.5", 23.8" and 27" models, all of which are available in 4k resolution, Freesync capable with a top refresh rate of 144Hz and a variety of colour management features, from six axis colour adjustment to 11 different black levels.

The Nitro RG0 features a impressively svelte .27" profile on both its 27" and 23.8" displays.  The maximum variable refresh rate is a bit lower, at 75Hz as is the 1080p resolution.  This display is more appropriate for those lacking the GPU power to run at higher resolutions or those who opt for multiple displays.

These Nitro displays offer 72% NTSC colour coverage and ship with a pair of 2W speakers inside the bezel.  HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort connections are available, depending on your preference and they offer a variety of display modes as well as Acer's VisionCare which includes Flickerless, BlueLightShield and ComfyView.  As these are Freesync displays, the pricing is quite reasonable, the VG0 starts at $130 while the RG0 can be yours for $170.

A 21.5 inch 4k 144hz monitor for $130 sounds kinda incredible.

You misunderstood the press release.

From your write up:"The VG0 is available in 21.5", 23.8" and 27" models, all of which are 4k resolution, Freesync capable with a top refresh rate of 144Hz "

From the press release:"The Acer Nitro VG0 series is available with 27-, 23.8- and 21.5-inch panels delivering true-to-life color, and resolutions of 4K UHD, WQHD or Full HD."

And also from the release:"along with up to 144 Hz refresh rates"

It doesn't state what refresh rates go with what resolution/size, you could read it how you interpreted it, however I would wager that a 4k 144hz monitor would get it's own announcement and not be tossed into a line of other monitors. The 144hz refresh rate is for the 1080p/21 inch monitor if I had to guess.

That would make sense, but as it wasn't specifying exactly what the models are I didn't want to make assumptions.   I would guess what you are suggesting is correct but I want to see an update from Acer.

1440p 144hz VRR monitors are still a little pricey, whether green or red flavors(especially the green). with that said, I'd expect the 4k 144hz versions to be quite a bit more no matter what brand.
