After many delays, the first G-Sync, high refresh rate, HDR monitors are here by Nvidia. The very first is the Acer Predator X27, which is already available for preorder, the cost of this monitor is around $1999 according to Newegg lists and the delivery will start from 1st of June.
The monitor was first showcased at CES last year, these monitors were supposed to arrive from Nvidia in partnership with Acer and Asus in 2017 but due to major delay they were pushed back and now recently Nvidia confirmed that the displays would launch this month, but still the pricing of these devices are not confirmed.
On several European retailers, the preorders for both the Predator X27 and the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ went live last month, with the price ranging from $2500 to $3000, which is quite expensive when compared to $2000 Newegg price.
At Newegg the monitors have been limited to one per customer, it seems that the cost of the display hasn?t bothered the gamers as they are already out of stock.
Acer Predator X27 specs:
- AHVA panel
- 3840 ? 2160 (4K) resolution
- 178?/178? horizontal/vertical viewing angles
- 4 ms GTG response time
- 600 nits native brightness

The main issue with this type of display most people know, is that even a GTX 1080 Ti isn?t enough for 4K at 144Hz refresh rate, Nvidia’s upcoming GTX 1180 (Rumoured) might solve this problem.
