Acer Group has introduced one of the world’s first displays featuring AMD FreeSync technology that supports 144Hz refresh rate. The new monitor could become a good choice for gamers looking for AMD FreeSync tech and extreme refresh rates.
The Acer XG270HU uses 27” TN+film panel with 2560*1440 resolution with up to 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. The monitor has one HDMI 2.0, one dual-link DVI and one DisplayPort 1.2a connectors as well as two 2W speakers. The display features very thin bezel and therefore will also become a good choice for those, who plan to build multi-monitor configurations.
Since the XG207HU uses a TN panel, do not expect truly good viewing angles or the best possible colours; however, low response time and up to 144Hz refresh rates should be excellent for gaming.
The new display from Acer is the first 120Hz/144Hz monitor to support AMD’s FreeSync technology, which dynamically synchronizes refresh rates of displays to the frame rate of AMD Radeon graphics adapters to reduce input latency and reduce or fully eliminate visual defects during gaming or video playback.
Pricing of the Acer XG270HU is unknown, but do not expect it to be very high.

KitGuru Says: If you are a gamer who prefers AMD Radeon graphics cards and you are looking for a monitor that supports FreeSync, then the XG270HU is worth considering, especially keeping in mind the fact that at present it is the only FreeSync-supporting display with 144Hz refresh rate. Still, its rivals are going to emerge soon from other manufacturers pretty soon.
