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.
