Acer Unveils Predator CG437KP monitor: 43" VA, 4K, 144 Hz, Adaptive Sync, 1000 nits

(UPDATE: Acer has now launched the monitor) Acer at a special event unveiled their upcoming monitor that blurs the line between a television and a PC monitor. The Predator CG437KP makes use of a 43" VA panel (90% DCI-P3 coverage and low Delta E<1 color accuracy) with a 4K resolution. As if the size wasn't an impressive spec alone, Acer really have gone out of their way to make this a veritable Predator monitor, with 144 Hz refresh rates. The monitor also comes with Adaptive Sync support for both AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync and over HDMI for compatibility with current and future consoles. There's a maximum 1000 nits brightness, which brings VESA's DisplayHDR 1000 certification to the table.

I/O stands at 3x HDMI (likely to support all of those consoles users that are looking at this diagonal size might have), 2x DisplayPort 1.4 for actual Active Sync users, 1x USB 3.1-C, 2xUSB 3.0 and 2xUSB 2.0. There's even a remote control. The Acer Predator CG437KP is now available in the US at $1,499.99 MSRP.

1,500.... bwahahahahahahha. Drug addicts are supposed to lower their prices to get their fix.

Might as well buy OLED TV.

I could do without fast refresh (I don't really game anymore), but I'd like a good 32" 4k HDR600/1000 monitor instead.

We're both in for some waiting :D
This and next gen VR HMD.
I mean VIve is nice. But using it for coding and text processing all day is not fun due to the low resolution

This costs just as much as a brand new latest and greatest 55 inch OLED display WTF. LG's 48" OLED is expected to cost even less than that next year, which will be the BEST gaming monitor display for PC and console at a stupidly affordable price point.

Would be handy if one of its HDMI ports was ARC for audio passthrough but i see no mention of it anywhere. Might as well wait for the LG C10 OLED which will probably be out in late february if this year's C9 release date is anything to go by.

no display stream compression? that means that quality will be lowered if HDR is enabled, because chroma sub sampling will be required to use it at a high refresh. wait for DSC.

At 120Hz at 8bpc with HDR you have 4:4:4 with no image compression. Sure it's not 10 bit HDR (but it is processed on monitor side as such probably using some LUTs. But then again it's not losless i mean "visually losless by as judge by untrained people" image compression. DSC for now is a mystery to me on how that will affect image quality. stretching HDR on 8bpc is something i get and won't be a big issue.

Oleds for PC use.... you'd better prepare couple of them in a line for burn in.

Yeah for8 coding reverb might hit the spot with resolution but for prolonged use i think form factors will have to change significantly. I mean i could do over 10h stretches on rift it was comfy but that was with gaming and moving my head about not same consistent pressure in the same spot all the time.

Don't get me wrong i love OLED but for PC use with burn in issues it's a no-go for me. As a dedicated movie display ... sure as a multifunction PC display no... at least not yet. And while this won't have the contrast of OLED VA panels have significantly better static contrast ration to IPS. For me this display hits the spot with size , pixel density , refresh rate and HDR.

It will replace my dual display setup and will provide a better movie watching experience after work.
