Acer XB280HK World’s First 4K UHD Display with NVIDIA G-Sync Technology

Good news for gamers who are planning to get into 4K UHD display, Acer has recently announced the world’s first 4K Ultra HD display featuring NVIDIA G-Sync Technology – the Acer XB280HK. If you can remember, Asus was the first to sell monitors with G-Sync technology. But they were only 1080p displays. Now G-Sync is coming to 4K UHD displays as well, starting with Acer’s XB280HK. The XB280HK is a 28-inch LED backlit display with an exact resolution of 3840×2160. Aside from G-Sync, it also features Flicker-less technology, Low dimming technology and ComfyView technology. There’s a lot of technology used in this monitor. I’m pretty sure this is going to be one expensive monitor. Check out the rest of its features and specifications from Acer’s official release below.

The Acer XB280HK 4K UHD Display with G-Sync Technology

Acer announces the new Acer XB280HK gaming monitor as the world’s first 4k2k display featuring NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology to provide stunning, ultra-smooth, tear-free imagery and rich colors for outstanding gaming experiences.

Part of the new XB0 line of large gaming monitors, the Acer XB280HK is intended to be paired with enthusiast PCs for immersive, ultra high-end gaming. It features a spacious 28-inch LED backlit display with 4k2k Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) that’s four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD, and presents stunning high quality images for outstanding visual enjoyment.

With a GeForce® GTX™-powered PC, NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ display technology synchronizes the display’s refresh rates to the GPU to eliminate screen tearing and minimize display stutter and input lag to deliver smoother, faster, more breathtaking gaming experiences. Scenes appear instantly, objects look sharper and more vibrant, and gameplay is more fluid and responsive providing gamers with significant performance advantages.

The Acer XB280HK builds in several features that take into consideration prolonged usage by heavy users such as programmers, writers, and graphic designers:

  • Flicker-less technology – stable power supply eliminates screen flicker particularly beneficial for heavy users by helping to reduce eye strain.
  • Low dimming technology – adjust to as low as 15 percent brightness in low light environments to make it easy on the eyes. Standard monitor settings start at 30 percent brightness level.
  • ComfyView technology – the non-glare panel reduces reflection from light source.

The Acer XB280HK features 170/170 degree viewing angles so that brilliantly-colored images can be seen from almost every angle. DisplayPort™ v1.2 transmits video signals and four USB 3.0 ports are conveniently located at the side and bottom of the display for connecting to keyboard, mouse or mobile devices.

The Acer XB280HK monitor is made with post-consumer recycled plastic and features a distinctive red ring on the base stand. The multi-functional ErgoStand allows the screen to tilt from -5° to 35° to ensure the best viewing angle; the base rotates 120° from left or right for easy screen sharing; the panel height can be raised by up to 150 mm for optimum comfort; and the screen pivots from horizontal to vertical for more viewing perspectives.

This eco-friendly monitor features a mercury- and arsenic-free panel, LED backlighting for reduced power consumption, and is ENERGY STAR®(1) qualified.

The Acer XB280HK starts shipping in Q2 in Pan America, EMEA, Japan, and Taiwan.
