The Acer XV282K KV Appears with HDMI 2.1 Support in 144Hz Monitor

Acer has announced that its new 144 Hz gaming monitor will have HDMI 2.1 support in order to facilitate the use of next-gen consoles, among other things.

The XV282K KV was first noticed by PC Monitors via Taobao, and shows the leaked spec for the monitor. It comes in full 4K at a resolution of 3840×2160, has an IPS panel and runs at a frequency of 144Hz. It also has a 1ms GtG response time, support for DisplayHDR 600 and AMD FreeSync. The 28-inch monitor has two HDMI 2.1 ports, making it the perfect addition to any kind of gaming setup with the hopes of having a new PlayStation 5 or an Xbox Series X or S.

It’s currently listed for around 7000 Chinese Yuan which works out to around $1020 and is expected to launch in January 2021 in China, so should be around us a couple of months following that. This is the first Acer monitor to support the new HDMI standard, one that should become more mainstream with the imminent launch of next-gen graphics cards and consoles.
