A worldwide leader and innovator in gaming displays, Acer today announced the expansion of its Predator monitor line-up in the United States with a new 24-inch flat-screen model featuring WQHD (2560x1440) resolution in a ZeroFrame design for seamless viewing in multi- monitor set-ups.

Aggressive aesthetics feature a sleek black frame with sharp angles and bold red accents. Outfitted with NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology and a quick 1ms response time, it renders fast- moving actions and dramatic transitions without smearing or ghosting for ultra-smooth game play. The Predator XB241YU delivers superb color accuracy with support for 100% of the sRGB color gamut, while NVIDIA® ULMB™ technology1 reduces motion blur. Its fast 144Hz refresh rate can be overclocked up to 165Hz, speeding up the frames per second for gamers who like to push their limits.

“We believe this powerful WQHD monitor in a ZeroFrame design and NVIDIA G-Sync offers a compelling feature set for gamers, including those competing in eSports,” said Ronald Lau, Acer America director – stationary computing. “The ZeroFrame design makes it a perfect choice for those wanting to create an immersive multi-monitor setup, while the fast refresh rate and support for changing settings in-game, gives gamers a competitive edge.”

Featuring GameView technology, gamers can swiftly toggle between three customizable display profiles to tweak settings while gaming without the need to navigate the OSD menu, a benefit when every second counts. Special settings include dark boost (black level adjustment) to see every threat, aim-point assistance for getting a jump on opponents and perfecting the shot and selecting the on-screen refresh rate.

Outfitted with Acer Eye Protect, the Predator XB241YU utilizes flicker-less, blue-light filter, ComfyView and low-dimming technologies to help safeguard the eyes from blue light emissions, which may help reduce eye strain and fatigue for a more comfortable gaming experience. The adjustable stand provides height adjustment up to 5.9 inches and a quick release design easily disconnects the display from the stand for VESA wall mounting. It also provides handy cable management to keep the desk free from clutter. Powerful connectivity includes HDMI, DisplayPort v1.2 and a USB 3.0 hub (1 up/4 down), while two 2W stereo speakers deliver quality audio.
