    Acer Announces 49", 55" Gaming Monitors - 4K, HDR, IPS

    We definitely need DP 1.5/2.0 or whatever & HDMI 2.1 to come sooner than later, 4K + HDR at high refresh rate (120Hz+) can't be done with current standards. Damn even Ultrawide 1440p with HDR can't make it to 144Hz duo to current limited standards.

    In Win Introduces Its A1 Series of Mini-ITX Enclosures
