Acer announced the Predator X27 in April. The 27″ game monitor combines many features of high-end monitors. The screen has a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels at a refresh rate of 144Hz. The maximum brightness is 1000cd/m2 and therefore the screen must be able to display HDR images. The LEDs can be dimmed in 384 zones.

The panel of the Predator X27 has a quantum dot layer. These are nanocrystals that have a favorable influence on the color range. The monitor could display 99 percent of the AdobeRGB color space.
