Acer Announces 49″, 55″ Gaming Monitors – 4K, HDR, IPS

Woah! a 55″ inch gaming monitor, imagine that!

Acer today at its japan-specific news page revealed the launch of two new desktop monitors that really do defy convention on the real-estate that you can have plopped right in front of your eyes. The new 49″ EB490QKbmiiipfx and 55″ EB550Kbmiiipx displays (ehrm… a little more attention to the naming convention, Acer?) deliver what’s expected to be a sub-par HDR experience (due to their maximum 300 cd/m² brightness), even though they do tout HDR 10 certification. Response times are being set at 4 ms for both models, with a 1,200:1 contrast ratio.

 

The monitors feature blue-light reduction technology, and 2x 5 W speakers are par of the course. “Flickerless” technology points our proverbial ears to some sort of variable refresh rate technology, but nothing else from the translation seems to suggest this. Input listing points to 1x HDMI 2.0 (HDCP 2.2 compatible), 2x HDMI 1.4, and 1x DisplayPort 1.2 ports. Apparently, these will be launched in Asia first, for 70,000 yen (550 EUR/USD) and 100,000 yen (799 EUR/USD) for the 49″ and 55″ panels, respectively, starting on June 21st.
