Acer America announced the new Nitro XZ2 Series monitors offering gamers smooth and immersive gameplay with AMD Radeon FreeSync, VESA Certified DisplayHDR 400 and up to a fast 1 ms response time with prices starting at $199.99. The series includes the 31.5-inch Nitro XZ322QU and 27-inch Nitro XZ272 supporting up to a speedy 165 Hz refresh rate and the 23.6-inch 144 Hz Nitro XZ242Q. Thanks to Visual Response Boost (VRB), they deliver up to a 1 ms response time, resulting in smoothly rendered images with less noticeable blur in fast moving scenes.
“Our newest Nitro series monitors combine speed, FreeSync and curved panels to offer fun and exciting gaming at a great value,” said Ronald Lau, Acer America director – stationary computing. “The fast performance and affordable pricing make the Nitro series ideal for a wide range of gamers, particularly for first-person shooter and racing games where fluid visuals are key.”
The Nitro XZ2 series monitors support DisplayPort and HDMI on AMD Radeon FreeSync, which syncs the monitor’s and graphics card’s frames to deliver clear and fluid visuals even during the fiercest battles. VESA Certified DisplayHDR 400 provides up to 400 nit cd/m² brightness, a 100 million: 1 maximum contrast ratio and HDR10 support, resulting in brilliant images with true-to-life colors. In addition, the 1500R curved screen increases the field of view and perceived area of peripheral vision compared to a flat display of the same size.
Full HD resolution provides sharp and clear visuals, perfect for gaming, editing photos and viewing movies and videos. Gamers can optimize their visual advantage by selecting from 11 black level options to reveal details often hidden in the shadows, so they don’t miss a thing. In addition, 6-axis color adjustment enables color, hue and saturation to be fine-tuned to suit individual preferences.
Intuitive Setting Control
The integrated Acer Display Widget simplifies modifying settings for creating a profile, organizing the viewing space via screen split and customizing settings for each application. Two HDMI ports and DisplayPort provide fast connection to a host of PCs.
Acer Game Mode has eight pre-set display modes to optimize visuals to suit the content displayed. These modes include Action, Racing, Sport, User, Standard, ECO, Graphic and Movie. Settings are easily accessed through a hotkey or the OSD settings menu.
The anti-glare VA panel provides wide viewing angles up to 178 degrees horizontally and vertically. To maximize viewing comfort, an ergonomic stand with 360° swivel, tilt and height adjustment increases viewing comfort. A quick-release design easily separates the monitor from its stand for VESA wall-mounting to free up desk space for game sticks, mice and more. Acer VisionCare encompasses flicker-less, blue-light filter and ComfyView technologies to help prevent flickering and screen glare as well as decrease blue light emissions.
