Acer has 3 new OLED gaming monitors, including one with a 480Hz refresh rate


At Computex 2024, Acer unveiled an impressive array of monitors, with a particular focus on their new OLED models, which promise to catch the eyes of many gaming enthusiasts. The standout among these is the Predator X27 F3, a gaming monitor that combines a WQHD OLED display with a remarkable 480Hz refresh rate. This combination ensures that gamers no longer have to choose between sharp visuals and high refresh rates. However, this cutting-edge technology comes with a hefty price tag.

The Predator X27 F3 features a 26.5-inch screen with a resolution of 2560×1440, a response time of just 0.01ms, and the ultra-fast 480Hz refresh rate. This OLED panel is designed to deliver vibrant colors, deep contrasts, and stunning visuals, making it a top choice for gamers who demand the best performance and image quality. Despite other manufacturers offering similar specs, the Predator X27 F3’s compact size makes it particularly appealing for esports, where large displays can sometimes be a disadvantage.


Acer plans to release the Predator X27 F3 in North America in the third quarter of 2024, with a starting price of $1,200.


In addition to the X27 F3, Acer announced two more OLED monitors: the Predator X32 X3 and the Predator X34 X5. The X32 X3 is a 31.5-inch display with a 4K UHD resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate, and a response time of 0.03ms. It also offers dynamic frequency and resolution options, allowing users to switch between 4K UHD at 240Hz and 1080p at 480Hz, catering to different gaming preferences, from esports to immersive RPGs.

The X34 X5 is a 34-inch ultrawide monitor featuring a UWQHD resolution (3440×1440), a slight 1800R curvature for enhanced immersion, a 0.03ms response time, and a 240Hz refresh rate. This model is designed to provide a more immersive experience with its curved display and wide aspect ratio.

Both the X32 X3 and X34 X5 are expected to hit the market in the final quarter of 2024, with the X32 X3 priced starting at $1,200 and the X34 X5 at $1,100. This pricing positions them competitively, especially considering Asus’s recent announcement of a $750 OLED gaming monitor with similar specs.

Beyond the OLED models, Acer also introduced new smart monitors from the Acer DA1 and Nitro GA1 series. These monitors range from 27 to 32 inches and are geared toward both gaming and general workstation use. They are priced more affordably, starting at $330, and are set to launch in the fourth quarter of 2024.

Acer’s latest offerings at Computex 2024 showcase their commitment to pushing the boundaries of gaming technology, delivering high-performance monitors that cater to a variety of needs and preferences. Whether you’re an esports competitor or a casual gamer, Acer’s new lineup has something to offer.
