Acer Announces 4 New OLED and MiniLED Monitors, Sizes up to 57 Inches

The emerging trend of promising high-quality displays with MiniLED and OLED is gaining traction. Acer doesn’t want to be left behind. The Taiwanese manufacturer recently introduced several new gaming monitors with these two panel types.

One of them, the Predator Z57, is noteworthy for offering a very large size with a 57-inch diagonal screen. Its resolution reaches 7,680 x 2,160 pixels (aspect ratio 32:9) with a high refresh rate of 120 Hz.

The Predator Z57 is a curved widescreen monitor with a curvature degree of 1000R. Its panel type is MiniLED with a DCI-P3 color space coverage of 98 percent and a maximum brightness level of 1000 nits.

Acer has also equipped this jumbo monitor with a DisplayPort 1.4 connector and two HDMI 2.1 connectors that support game consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. There are also a pair of 10-watt speakers and a USB-C 3.2 hub.

Outside of gaming, the Predator Z57 features a productivity feature called picture-by-picture, which divides the screen display into two to show output from two different sources simultaneously.

Acer’s new MiniLED monitor lineup also includes other models of a more “normal” size, such as the Predator X34 V3 with a 34-inch diagonal (3,440 x 1,440, 21:9) and a curvature degree of 1500R.

This particular gaming monitor is promised to have a 1 ms Grey-to-Grey (GtG) response time with a refresh rate of up to 180 Hz to minimize ghosting effects during fast-paced gaming.

The Predator X34 V3 is capable of displaying DCI-P3 color space with a coverage of 94 percent and is equipped with DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1, and USB-C connectors with 90-watt PD support.

Predator X39 and X34 X with OLED Panels

Different from MiniLED, which actually uses LED panels but with small LED backlighting, two other new monitors from Acer have OLED panels where each pixel can be individually turned on or off. Therefore, the Predator X39 and X34 X duos also have very fast response times, up to 0.01 ms. These two OLED monitors are similar but differ in size as their names suggest. The Predator X39 has a diagonal of 39 inches, while the X34 X is 34 inches.

Both have the same UWQHD resolution (3,440 x 1,440 pixels) with a curvature degree of 800R, a DCI-P3 color space coverage of 99 percent, and a refresh rate of 240 Hz. The provided connectors include DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1, and USB-C (90-watt PD).

All new MiniLED and OLED gaming monitor models from Acer support AMD FreeSync Premium technology to prevent tearing.

Acer has not detailed when the Predator Z57, Predator X34 V3, as well as Predator X39 and X34 X monitors will be available in the market. Compiled by Bellagionailsinc from Tom’s Hardware, Wednesday (31/1/2024), these products are expected to be available in the second quarter of 2024.

As for the prices, the Predator Z57 is the most expensive with a price tag of $2,499, followed by the Predator X39 at $1,499 and the Predator X34 X at $1,299, then the Predator X34 V3 at $899.
