New monitors from Acer
First up is a new monitor, BM320, for professional users. The 32-inch monitor comes with a “ZeroFrame” design that virtually eliminates the bezel. However, Acer refrains from specifying the width of the bezel and based on past presentations we have learned to take these claims of “zero bezels” with a grain of salt.
Acer’s BM320 offers 3840x2160 resolution and targets photographers and graphic designers. It supports wide color gamuts, including AdobeRGB (100%) and DCI-P3 (90%) as well as standard sRGB. It also has a 10-bit IPS panel and has been pre-calibrated to Delta E<2.
- “The BM320 features a sleek ZeroFrame design which virtually eliminates the screen’s bezel for a seamless visual experience when multiple displays are put together, and adding a touch of modernity to the office,” said Acer.
Acer also unveiled a new massive 38-inch XR382CQK monitor with an ultra-wide curved IPS LCD panel. The monitor has a 3840x1600 resolution and a 2300R curvature. It targets users who prefer lots of desktop space as well as certain gamers. XR382CQK supports FreeSync for gaming but Acer did not specify further details.
Lastly, Acer revealed a new version of its “Predator” X34 model. The new 34-inch X34P offers more a less similar specifications, including 3440x1440 resolution, IPS panel, Nvidia G-Sync, and a curved form factor. The news here is that it should support 100Hz refresh rate for better gaming performance. The design has also been slightly tweaked. Acer X34P should be available in the fourth quarter of 2016.
