Here we come up with Acer X27 Predator and the Asus PG27UQ the first G-Sync HDR monitors. The arrival of the first 4K monitors with G-Sync and HDR is just around the corner, these products should have been released last year, but they were delayed because of the difficulties involved in their manufacturing, as it involves adding many features in a fairly compact product.
Acer X27 Predator and the Asus PG27UQ the first G-Sync HDR monitors
Asus and Acer are preparing to announce the launch of their 4K monitors with G-Sync and HDR in May, which is expected in just two weeks. These new monitors will be based on a 3840×2160 pixel panel, with a G-Sync module, HDR10 support and the ability to reproduce 100% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum. For this purpose, it has been necessary to use a 384 LED backlight system and quantum dot technology, which has been very difficult to implement in a device with a measured size such as PC monitors.
For now, the first models will be the Acer X27 Predator and the Asus PG27UQ, the latter is now available in pre-sale for 2556.50 euros, a very high price, which is the price to pay for wanting so many advanced technologies on a PC monitor. For the time being it is not known where exactly the difficulties in its manufacture have been, it could be that Nvidia has been able to obtain unrealistic specifications, or that AU Optronics has had problems in the manufacture of the necessary panels.

In any case, the first 4K monitors with G-Sync and HDR are very close to being sold, although for now, they will only be available to a privileged few, the rest of us will have to wait for prices to fall.
