Acer Offers New XV272UX – A Fast IPS 240Hz Monitor

A new page on Chinese site Taobao has listed a new monitor from Acer, the XV272UX. The monitor in question appears to be a new 27-inch IPS monitor, running at 240 Hz with a WQHD resolution of 2560×1440.

This new model appears to have adaptive-sync support through AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible Mode. So far, it’s believed that the monitor has a 1ms response time, which is believed to be a GtG response time according to PCMonitors.

DisplaySpecifications has said that they believe the previous model of this monitors sports an Innolux panel, but the 240Hz IPS Innolux panels and LG 240Hz IPS panels will only be available after the third quarter of the year. This goes hand in hand with the information that the monitor may only be available around August.

It’s going for around 5,499 Chinese Yuan which works out to around $770.

SPECS SUMMARY – Acer XV272UX

  • 27-inch IPS Display
  • 2560×1440 at 240 Hz
  • 1ms GtG Response Time
  • AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible

I don’t understand this highres-highrefresh craze. You can count on your fingers the modern games that run at 240hz even at 1080p. Unless UE5 really proves to be what they made it seem and the games get released I don’t think this has any actual use.

There are many benefits of high-Hz, including the ability to eliminate motion blur without using strobing.

You might want to read Blur Busters Law: The Amazing Journey To Future 1000Hz Displays as well as the upcoming GPUs that will be able to do more frame rate more cheaply, Frame Rate Amplification Technologies.

You do need to upgrade refresh rates geometrically, however (60Hz -> 120Hz -> 240Hz -> 480Hz -> 960Hz) for the benefits to remain human noticeable, until the vaninishing point of the diminishing curve (at the extreme, it can be quintuple digit for a 180-degree FOV retina resolution VR display).

4K displays were a $10,000 curiousity twenty years ago. Today you can buy 4K televisions from Walmart for $299. Tomorrow, native true high refresh rates will be inexpensive inclusions in future displays, so the refresh rate race will continue for a long time as there is human benefit.

CRTs did not need it because they strobed naturally. But real life doesn’t strobe, and is an equivalent of infinite Hz. And the only way to eliminate motion blur strobelessly is ultra-high-Hz. The increasing need for displays to emulate real life (3D graphics, virtual reality) has put a lot of pressure on the refresh rate race. Refresh rates will now continue to double once every 5-10 years all the way to quadruple digits because there is definite visible humankind benefit.

Anyone can help me I’m using Acer Kg271p for Xbox one X. I’m playing at 120hz which gives lower input lag. However not sure about overdrive Freesync and MPRT. I’m not sure what’s best yet. What should be on or off. And does those introduce input lag ?

$770 for a 144p 240hz MAYBE 1ms, no hdr monitor…. they are our of their goddamn minds…..

the samsung odyssey g9 has been leaked to be $1700…. however, you get ultra wide 5120×1440, 240hz, 1ms, hdr1000, in a 1000r curve….. that makes sense. considering how much you are getting, also considering its samaungs VA panel which theyve been doing a killer job with.

if im not mistaken, the alienware is sporting a “fast ips” and turns out, because its IPS, STILL has ghosting issues at lower framerates….. if that panel is similar to the ones going into the lg/acer/eve monitors, no thanks. IPS may have the best colors but it has the WORST performance for gaming.

granted, wish i could get a high resolution high refresh OLED at a reasonable size (27″ for 1440p and 32″ for 4k)…. maybe Sony will make some monitor/tv setups to be sold along with the ps5 that fits the bill….. but a part of me doubts it

Haha oh boy the amount of misinformation in this post is alarming. The Samsung G9 doesn’t have the HDR1000 spec made by VESA, its just a bad attempt made by Samsung so they can throw the HDR sticker on the monitor because it doesn’t use local dimming zones therefore isn’t a true HDR experience.

Also I think you are unfortunately mistaken IPS panels are not the worst for gaming that would be VA panels. Just look it up, there’s a reason 240hz IPS panels have been a thing for a while now and VA hasn’t and that’s because IPS has fast enough pixel transition time.

How is the smearing on Samsung VA panels? I thought high refresh rate VA panels looked horrible, but maybe they found a way around that.

I’ve had Samsung CRG9 and Acer XB273K P for a week. Both quoted as 4ms GtG, Samsung had much less motion blur. In terms of motion blur Samsung CRG9 looked to me as fast as LG 27gl850-b (with fast overdrive, not the fastest overdrive which is horrible), while having much better picture quality.
That’s why wee need to look at MRTP, OLED TVs have 0.1ms GtG, while being more blurry than 1ms TN Monitors.

Interesting. I currently have an Asus MG279Q (1440p 144Hz IPS) that I want to demote to second display and my plan was to buy the LG 27GL83A-B…
You made VA panels sound like a good alternative, but I don’t want a curved monitor. Is there any manufacturer that produces flat 1440p 144Hz VA Monitors without smearing?

No idea, man. From my experience the best way to buy monitors is to order the ones you’re interested and return the ones you like the least. I did have LG 27GL850-B on my table for a week and to me it looked as fast as Samsung CRG9, while LG had worse picture quality and contrast.

did you see an actual samsung panel? or other brand touting va? generally cheaper brands with va suck….. but samsung makes their own panels. i have the chg70 27″ right now, compared to a 4ms asus ips 165hz, the samsung is way nicer. the asus ips blur is so fucking bad….. granted its an older ips, but also compared to an older samsung va…..

i got a buddy who bought the new Alienware IPS, he ended up going back to his Aliemware TN 240hz because the IPS blur was so bad….
