When it comes to console gaming, a lot of times console gamers tend to favor TVs. This is because you can get a bigger TV for a cheaper price compared to a monitor with similar specs, plus the way consoles are designed, they’re typically played in the living room where the TV is kept anyway.
However, if you play in the bedroom or the study and don’t have the space or a need for a massive TV, then you might be interested to learn that Acer has since announced their new Nitro XV282K KV monitor which appears to be aimed at console gamers. This is thanks to a key feature in the form of support for HDMI 2.1. This will allow gamers to enjoy their games at 4K and 120 fps at the same time.
HDMI 2.1 is a pretty common port when it comes to TVs, but less so for monitors for computers, which is why it’s good to see Acer offer that option. Even if you’re not necessarily a console gamer, the Acer Nitro XV282K KV monitor could make a good PC monitor anyway. It will feature a 28-inch sized display with a 3840×2160 resolution. There is also a 144Hz refresh rate, 90% DCI-P3 wide color gamut coverage, and like we said, a HDMI 2.1 port.
It will be priced at $900, which is actually not too bad for a monitor with these kinds of specs, and there is also support for AMD’s FreeSync Premium. It is expected to be released in May, so do keep an eye out for it if this sounds like something that you might find useful.
