Acer Predator X38 Curved Gaming Monitor

The company's new high-end gaming displays bolster its already-strong line-up.

At CES 2020, Acer unveiled three new massive monitors under its Predator moniker for gaming hardware.

Acer's Predator CG552K is the first of the lot and is the largest monitor in Acer's entire line-up. It's got a 4K display that measures a whole 55 inches across. It comes packed with a super-fast OLED panel which runs at 120HZ and has a 0.5ms (GtG) response time. The display boasts VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification and is compatible with Nvidia's G-SYNC anti-tearing and artifact minimising technology.

Gaming monitors of this size aren't new, but they certainly aren't commonplace. It seems like Acer could be playing off the hype and emphasis that Nvidia placed on what it called "Big Format Gaming Displays", monitors that are over 48 inches in size.

Second off the block is the Predator X38, which has a 37.5-inch curved IPS display with a UWQHD+ (3,840 x 1,600) resolution. Acer hasn't provided information about the panel's base refresh rate but says that it can be overclocked up to 175Hz. As well, the display features G-SYNC and sports a VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification.

The Predator X32 might be the smallest of the bunch, but it still packs a punch. The 32-inch 4K monitor has a refresh rate of 144Hz. It's also equipped with G-SYNC Ultimate variable refresh rate technology to minimise artifacts and screen tearing.

While it's built for gaming, the monitor can easily be used for creative workloads. The panel covers 99% of the Adobe RGB colour space and has VESA DisplayHDR 1400 certification.

The X32 and X38 are expected to launch in April, and the larger CG552K should hit store shelves in the second quarter of this year. There's no word on Australian pricing and availability yet.
