The first 4K gaming monitor is finally about to become reality, though it has a serious price tag to match. It’s more or less the same story as the 1440P monitors when they first launched with their high refresh rates and notably high price to match their performance.

Gaming is constantly progressing with the ever more powerful graphics cards, so it is time that the monitor tech caught up a little. Acer is one of the first to get to the pre-order stage with their X27 4K monitor that features a full 4K UHD resolution with 144Hz refresh rates, and, HDR to make it even more enticing. Furthermore, it has a peak brightness of 1000 nits, roughly 100 nits more than other 4K monitors currently on the market that support HDR.

Here are some of its key specs:

  • IPS 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD), 144Hz
  • Brightness: 600 nits / 1000 nits (Peak)
  • 4ms (GTG) Response time
  • HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, USB 3.0 x 4
  • Predator Shield, Light Sensor
  • Swivel, Rotate, Height Adjustments, VESA
