Acer has announced a pair of gaming monitors, beginning with their first curved NVIDIA G-SYNC monitor, the Predator Z35.

This 21:9 UltraWide display features a 2560x1080 resolution and supports overclocking for up to 200 Hz refresh. The Predator Z35 certainly looks the part, with angular styling and a dramatically curved (2000R curvature) screen that promises to help provide immersive gameplay.

Next up is the Predator XB1 Series, which consists of both 27-inch and 28-inch models.

All monitors in the Predator XB1 Series feature NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, with resolution the differentiating factor between the two 27-inch models.

From Acer:

The 27-inch models (XB271HK / XB271HU) feature a ZeroFrame edge-to-edge design with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) or WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS panels that support 100% of the sRGB color gamut, while the XB271HU supports NVIDIA ULMB and refresh rates of up to 144Hz. The 28-inch model (XB281HK) features a 4K UHD panel that has a fast GTG (gray to gray) response time of 1ms, rendering fast-moving actions or dramatic transitions smoothly without smearing or ghosting. 

Pricing for the Predator Z35 will be $1199, with XB1 starting at $799. The Z35 will be available in the U.S. in December, while the XB1 will be available in November.

Wow! I was going to buy xb270hu next week, but xb271hu looks so much better! Same great ips panel and 144hz but now with matte finish and cool stand. Damn, have to wait till november now.

Okay, I'll give you the matte finish is better, but this stand is in no way "cool"

It looks much better than what xb270hu has anyway.

I'd like to know why this is called the "XB1" line.

The XB(27)1HU -

The 27 represents the size of the screen while the XB and the 1 represent series and generation respectively.

Right now the XB270HU is out - that means it's XB series, 27'' screen, 0 is first gen.

That part make sense. XB1 just looks like XboxOne. This is why I find it strange to name this like XB1.

Ill be blunt... This seems too good to be true.

WAY too good. Overclocking to 200hz?? Are you crazy.. The color loss must be significant. Or The Response rate gets hit hard

I mean I honestly was hoping for a 32" Gsync 1440p 144hz 1ms delay and 99% IPS RGB... < GOOD enough for a HXC gamer. Around $1000

This idk.... I guess Im a year or so off for my 32" dream... Why 28"? the hell why not 30" instead????
