Acer is pushing the limits of refresh rate with its new gaming monitor. Until now, a 360Hz refresh rate was the highest we have ever seen on gaming monitors, but Acer decided to go beyond by launching the XV252Q F, pushing its refresh rate as high as 390Hz through overclocking.
Like other Acer XV2 monitors, the XV242Q F features a simple design with black with red accents. It comes with a 25-inch AUO AHVA (IPS-like) panel with a FullHD resolution, a 0.5ms G2G response time, and a 360Hz native refresh rate and a 390Hz maximum overclock. This panel supports Adaptive-Sync, including AMD FreeSync Premium with VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and LFC (Low Frame Compensation).
The 400nits of brightness and 1000:1 static contrast ratio combined with an 8-bit colour depth allow the monitor to cover 99% of the sRGB gamut. The XV252Q F monitor comes with VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, allowing users to play games or playback videos with HDR enabled, and VRB (Visual Response Boost), which is basically Acer's strobe backlight technology.
The fully ergonomic stand allows users to tilt, swivel, pivot, and adjust the height. There's also a set of VESA 100x100mm mounting holes in the back of the monitor. Video outputs include 2x HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort 1.4. Moreover, there's a pair of 2W speakers and a 3.5mm audio jack.

KitGuru says: A 390Hz refresh rate might not be for everyone, but those who have the PC for it will probably be delighted with the experience. Do you have a PC capable of outputting 390FPS at 1080p?
