Taiwanese manufacturer Acer has announced four new monitors in the Nitro XV3 series. These are screens with IPS panels and relatively high refresh rates ranging from 144 to a maximum of 240Hz.
The Nitro XV3 monitors are primarily two 27″ monitors. The Nitro XV273 X has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 240Hz, combined with a gray-to-gray response time of 1ms and a DisplayHDR 400 display. The latter means that the monitor has a peak brightness of at least 400cd/m², the lowest category that the VESA assigns to monitors that can display a minimum acceptable level of HDR.
In addition, Acer comes with the Nitro XV273U S. It has a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and a refresh rate of 144Hz that can be overclocked to 165Hz. The manufacturer does not state any further specifications with this copy. The other two models are 24.5″ monitors with full HD resolutions. Of these, the XV253Q X has a refresh rate of 240Hz, while the XV253Q P is stuck at 144Hz.
The four monitors also have the necessary similarities, such as the display of 99 percent of the sRGB color space, and the support for Nvidia’s G-Sync and adaptive sync. Acer does not report at which refresh rates the number of images per second is synchronized with the output of the GPU.
The XV273U S will be released in Europe in January next year for at least 649 euros, while the XV273 X should already be available this month for a starting price of 519 euros. The two 24.5″ models are cheaper; the XV253Q X will be available in Europe from November for prices starting at €419 and the XV253Q P will be available from October for €329 or higher.
