Acer Announces Predator X25 Monitor: 25", 1080p, 360 Hz

Acer today announced one of the world's highest refresh-rate monitors in the form of the Predator X25. Joining in the likes of Alienware and ASUS, who have already announced their own 360 Hz in the form of the AW2521H and ROG Swift 360, respectively. The Predator X25's über-high refresh rate will leave players out of any excuses so as to why they weren't able to react in time to a threat.

The 360 Hz refresh rates comes with compromises (resolution is only 1080p), and there will be NVIDIA's G-Sync on-board (but a graphics card and CPU combo that can push those 360 FPS to really make use of this refresh rate... Hmm. That's a tougher deal). Alienware has confirmed their AW2521H monitor uses IPS panel technology, and it would thus seem likely that Acer also makes use of that particular panel technology on the Predator X25. However, we'll have to wait and see. The monitor brings some quality of life technologies, such as ergonomics tilting (25 degrees backward, 5 degrees forward), swivel (30 degrees) and height adjustment (4.7 inches). The monitor also features an RGB lighting on the back of the monitor that can light up according to scenes being rendered or according to music you're playing, there's automatic brightness exposure, and a friendly reminder schedule that pops up a warning for users who have been using the monitor for too long, reminding them to take a little walk. No pricing or release date were available at time of writing.

1080p is absolutely fine for gaming and I would mind owning one of those 1080p 240/360.not on my priority list but man,1080p 240/360 is a million miles better than owning a 60hz 4K.
this must be fun for shooters and parkour games,I bet dying light be the zombie mode plays ridiculous on this.

I honestly don't understand people who see this and curse ppl who are interested.why ? not interested then get out.there'll be people who are cause they understand that pushing pc gaming experience is not just about more pixels.

but I guess that's the type,they think 1080p is stupid and then see this and say "I would like to pay a grand for that"

1080p is stupid when you have a 2080Ti for example attached to it.

What is the point of it being ridiculously fast on 1080p? Why not actually upgrade the pixels to get more out of the GPU? Whats the point of playing a game at 300FPS?

I thought that was the point of a discussion? Is it not? Maybe im just that "type" of person...

I grasp that idea. Youre the one being a jackass and being condescending. But maybe youre just that "type" of person.

But at certain point, having too many frames per second is a diminishing return on 1080p. But maybe you cant grasp that idea.

Wow, you're pathetic at backfiring. Like cucker tarlson said - not interested then leave instead of bashing other people. Disgraceful attempt at desperately desiring attention...

Lol thats not what this is. I didnt bash anyone in this thread. He made a passive aggressive post towards me and I responded. Thats all this is. Youre the one desiring attention by putting your nose into our conversation.

Good luck trying to get 240 or even 360fps even at 1080p.
This thing makes no sense whatsoever.

Dont let cucker tarlson or Obifrost here you say that. The latter will think youre desperately desiring attention. :laugh:

It'll be good for those CS:Go players that play at 640x480 at least!

Your opinion. Not everyone agrees. In fact, most people do not agree. Perhaps you are the one doing something wrong...

No, I agree with him, before I consider 300fps to be of any benefit, I want to see scientifically controlled tests that prove an AVERAGE human can even distinguish the difference between 240hz and 360hz

I sure hope this doesn't go main stream & I hope there is a option to shyt-can this, I have enough pop up errors, notifications & crap going on all day that this thing will shut off cuz it "thinks" I'm on too many hours........pass
