4K is all the rage these days, no wonder we saw a plethora of relevant products back at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. A similar show is taking place in Taipei, Taiwan and already quite a few products have been unveiled there. Acer is among the companies that have a big presence at Computex and today it has showed off a new 28-inch 4K monitor that comes with NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. G-Sync was first shown off nearly eight months ago.
G-Sync is basically a technology for gaming monitors. It reduces stuttering, screen tearing and lag by syncing the monitor to the video card. So for example the frame rate drops in a complex scene the monitor syncs automatically instead of introducing screen tearing or stuttering.
Monitors with this technology aren’t widely available despite eight months having been passed but it looks like Acer is close to hitting the market. The XB280HK monitor it showed off today has a 28-inch 3,840×2,160 TN panel, anti-glare coating, flicker free backlight as well as 4 USB 3.0 ports.
Acer hasn’t revealed exactly how much this monitor is going to cost, which is probably the question you’re all asking right now. However it did say that the monitor will be shipped in Q2, 2014, so its highly likely that this 28-inch 4K monitor is going to hit the market very soon.
