Acer announced the availability of the Predator Z301CT monitor, the world’s first 21:9 monitor with Tobii eye-tracking functionality. Acer also unveiled two Predator XB2 Series models, the Acer Predator XB252Q and Predator XB272, featuring 24.5- and 27-inch flat screens with a blazing fast 240Hz refresh rate. All three new models feature aggressive aesthetics via a sleek black frame with sharp angles and bold red accents and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology for ultra-smooth gameplay.

Acer Predator Z301CT – First Curved Monitor with Eye-Tracking

The Acer Predator Z301CT is a 30-inch curved monitor that won the CES 2017 “Best of Innovations” award in the computer peripherals category. The monitor’s integrated Tobii eye-tracking technology adds to a gamer’s arsenal of control tools, helping them to intuitively aim, shoot and explore. Tobii eye tracking uses the gamer’s eye movement to create a new input modality and complement existing gaming technologies. Pairing eye tracking with mouse and keyboard or gamepad controls give gamers a richer, more immersive experience as they are able to mimic actions that occur in real life, such as aiming at a target or looking for cover. Camera angles also automatically rotate as the gamer’s eye focuses on the edge of the screen, while characters and game environments react as the gamer looks around. Tobii eye tracking functionality can be found in over 45 game titles. The games’ sounds and graphics will dynamically adapt depending on where the gamers look. In addition, the ultra-wide Full HD (2560 X 1080) and 1800R curved screen makes gaming more attractive and powerful.

Other key features of the Acer Predator Z301CT include 4ms response time and a fast 200Hz refresh rate with wide 178-degree viewing angles and an extreme-narrow frame provide maximum viewing area. For optimum comfort, display of the Acer Predator Z301CT can tilt and swivel -5-degrees to 25-degrees and reach 4.7 inches (120mm) up and down for providing the most comfortable viewing position. Two 3W speakers with DTS Sound deliver superior quality audio for deepening the immersive experience.

New Predator XB2 Series - Acer Predator XB252Q and Predator XB272

Acer built the Predator XB2 Series monitors from the group up with gamers in mind that demands display that can handle fast-paced, tournament-grade intensity. The Acer Predator XB2 Series features a swift 1ms response time and 240Hz refresh rate, thanks to NVIDIA® ULMB™ technology. The Acer Predator XB252Q 24.5-inch monitor and Acer Predator XB272 27-inch monitor promises to deliver an incredibly realistic in-game experience with fast-moving action, sharp edges and dramatic transitions rendered smoothly without smearing or ghosting.

Superb picture quality is made possible with a Full HD 1080p resolution and a sharp 1,000:1 contrast ratio. The ZeroFrame design is ideal for multi-monitor setups and an ergonomically-designed stand lets gamers find the perfect viewing position with -5 to 20 degrees tilt, +45 degree swivel, 90 degrees clockwise pivot and height adjustment up to 4.5 inches (115 mm).
