CES 2021 is days away, but Acer has gotten ahead of the new tech announcements with one of its own. The company unveiled its May lineup of gaming monitors, including one that boasts HDMI 2.1, the technology that the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S both use to output 4K and 120Hz. The Acer Nitro XV282K KV will be the company’s first HDMI 2.1 gaming monitor, and among the first to release in general, as the technology is just now being adopted by monitors.
The HDMI 2.1-capable Acer Nitro gaming monitor features a 4K resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and $900 price tag. While the PS5 and Xbox Series X may be more widely used with this monitor, users who are able to snag an RTX 3000 series graphics card will also be able to make use of the HDMI 2.1 tech. And while HDMI 2.1 offers its own VRR (variable refresh rate) technology, it will also support FreeSync Premium for PC gaming with DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0 cables–though your features will be limited with the latter. Potential buyers can also expect HDR600.
