Last April, Acer promised the world an outstanding monitor named Predator X27, which according to the company would possess a “jaw dropping showstopper” display. You would have agreed the same looking at the initial specification sheet that was provided by them. However, Acer promised the consumers that they will bring Predator X27 monitor out this year, but now it looks like the fans will have to wait till next year to get their hand on this brilliant display screen. Acer has postponed the launch of Predator X27 until the first quarter of the next year, i.e. 2018.
If you have been waiting for ROG Swift PG27UP gaming monitor, we have another bad news for you. The Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ was announced by the company almost at the same time when Acer Predator X27 was announced, but after delayed the launch of their beastly monitor, Asus also updated that they are planning to release their super monitor next year as well.
Both of the companies, i.e. Asus and Aced did not provide any specific reason for the delay. Not only that, they do not have any fixed released date for the monitors as well. So, all you can do is wait till next year to get these monitors included in your gaming setup.

In case you have very less idea about these upcoming monitors from Asus and Acer, they will feature a huge 27 inch IPS display panel with 4K resolution, as expected. The screen will have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 with super-fast 144Hz frequency. Apart from this common spec, there is a list of other features that Acer is planning to offer along with its monitor which includes:
• Support for HDR10
• The users get support for Nvidia G-Sync
• The Acer monitor will possess Tobii eye-tracking technology and Nvidia Ultra Low Motion Blur
• There will be 384 LED lighting zones which will be individually controlled
• 1000 nits of brightness
• There is 100% sRGB color space coverage
• A response time of 4ms.
There is no doubt in the fact that these monitors will offer outstanding visuals to the gamers with well-defined whites, spectacular color reproduction as well as dark deep blacks. However, we will have to wait and test whether these specifications actually matches the real-time performance of the monitors. Still, we can predict that with 4ms response time and inbuilt Nvidia G-Sync support, gaming on them are going to be ultra-smooth.
Since, both the Asus and the Acer monitors have similar specification sheet, we think that both the giants are getting the monitor panel from the same manufacturer and then putting the additional specification and firmware on top of it. In addition to the release date, they have also not hinted the price of the monitors. But we expect them to fall somewhere between $1000 to $1500 tag which is quite expensive but that hardly matters when it comes to HD gaming experience.
