If you are in the market looking for a high-resolution Gaming Monitor, which also supports high refresh rates, then the Acer’s new XV282K KV 28 inch Monitor might suit your needs. The Acer XV282K KV, which belongs to the ‘Nitro XV2’ series, combines a 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) resolution with 144Hz refresh rate and a number of other attractive features.
This appears to be the first gaming monitor from Acer with HDMI 2.1 support. HDMI 2.1 is a new display standard, and will have a wide adoption rate once RTX Ampere GPUs and RDNA2-based graphics cards, and also next-generation gaming consoles come to the market. This 28-inch 4K panel (3840×2160) with 144 Hz refresh rate was manufactured by Innolux, and carries the label M280DCA AAS (which means Azimuthal Anchoring Switch), and it’s an IPS-like technology from Innolux (a subsidiary of Foxconn and CMI).
The XV282K KV monitor supports Adaptive-Sync as well as AMD FreeSync with a 48-144Hz variable refresh rate, and the usual accompanying LFC support. A 1000:1 static contrast and 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles are specified, whilst 10-bit colour is also supported. A flicker-free WLED backlight is employed, offering a 98% DCI-P3 colour gamut and 550 cd/m² of typical maximum luminance.
The monitor responds to HDR10 content, offering VESA DisplayHDR 600 support. This allows the generous colour gamut and the 10-bit colour reproduction to be put to good use.
Local luminance pulse of 600 cd/m2 is also expected since this monitor has VESA HDR600 certification. The monitor is equipped with a single DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC support, and two HDMI 2.1 connectors. It also comes with 4 USB 3.0 ports and an audio jack output. The monitor is also equipped with dual 2W speakers.
Further information can be found on this page from Chinese shopping website Taobao. It’s listed there for 8499 Chinese Yuan, which roughly converts to $1248 USD. The seller has started taking pre-orders and the monitor is expected to ship in January 2021.
