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.
