Acer has revealed two new gaming monitors the Nitro VG0 and RG0 series monitors at this year’s Next@Acer event.
The two gaming monitors are IPS monitors with AMD Radeon FreeSync with what Acer says is a fast response time of up to 1ms with visual response boost (VRB). Acer says VRB decreases blur in fast moving images to achieve the effect of a 1ms MPRT, along with up to 144 Hz refresh rates.
The integrated 6-axis colour adjustment lets gamers fine-tune colour, hue and saturation to best suit the game at hand, while built-in black boost enables gamers to select from 11 black level options.
The new Nitro RG0 series’ 1920×1080@75Hz is aimed at 1080p Full HD gaming, multimedia, and productivity applications, including Blu-ray Disc console gaming and widescreen cinematic playback.
The IPS panels provide accurate views even at wide angles of up to 178 degrees horizontally and vertically. For optimum viewing angles, the monitors can tilt from –5 to 20 degrees [–5 to 15 degrees for RG0 series].
The monitors have two 2W stereo speakers installed.
The Acer Nitro VG0 series is available with 27-, 23.8- and 21.5-inch panels with resolutions of 4K UHD, WQHD or Full HD.
The thin Acer Nitro RG0 series has a .27-inch thin profile and comes in two sizes, 27- and 23.8-inch models.
The computer giant has integrated its Acer Game Mode into the monitors which has eight pre-set display modes to optimise visuals depending on the type of content being displayed. Display modes include Action, Racing, Sport, User, Standard, ECO, Graphic and Movie. Settings are easily accessed through a hotkey or the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu.
Both of these models have won 2018 Red Dot Design Awards.
Australian pricing and availability is still to come.
