If you're a gamer, I have some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is that Acer has launched an awesome new monitor for gaming called Predator XB321HK, which will totally blow your mind. The bad news is that unless you're really rich, you will probably never be able to afford it. Since there are very few products on the market that are comparable to its performance, the company decided to set a whooping $1,300 price tag to its newest monitor.
As far as features go, the product looks amazing on paper as well as in real life. Predator HB321HK is a 32-inch screen with a 4K resolution, 60 MHz refresh frequency and astounding 4 ms response time. However, what's really cool is that the device embeds the G-sync technology, so if you have an Nvidia 650 Ti Boost or a newer Nvidia graphics card, the monitor will match its refresh rate to the framerate currently registered by your system. Additional features include two 2-watt speakers, HDMI and DisplayPort 1,2 compatibility, a hub with four USB 3.0 ports, Acer EyeProtect and ComfyView technology. Lastly, the screen allows for a 4.7 inch up-down movement and -5 to 25-degree tilt, so you can easily find a comfortable position.
To be completely honest, this kind of price for a gaming monitor puts the VR market in a totally different light. Since Oculus Rift costs somewhere around $600 and HTC Vive is priced a little under $1000, virtual reality is beginning to look like a much more affordable option.
