Acer Expands Its Predator Gaming Portfolio with Three New HDR Monitors
- Three new Predator monitors offer something for everyone, from console enthusiasts to the most hardcore of FPS fanatics, all VESA DisplayHDR™ Certified
- The Predator CG437K S is a massive 42.5-inch UHD gaming monitor that supports HDMI 2.1 and can be used for both PC or console gaming

- Predator X28 is a 28-inch TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe®-certified gaming monitor with a 155 Hz display (overclocked) and Delta E<1 color accuracy
TAIPEI, TAIWAN (May 27, 2021) Acer has expanded its line of Predator gaming monitors with three new VESA DisplayHDR™ -Certified models: the Predator CG437K S, Predator X38 S and Predator X28. The new monitors target different niches by offering something that will excite a wide variety of gamers, whether weekend warrior or seasoned professional.
Predator CG437K S
The Predator CG437K S is a massive 42.5-inch NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ Compatible gaming monitor with a UHD (3840x2160) display that strives to provide players with the most flexible experience possible, containing a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports that support the latest game consoles and allow for 4K 144 Hz with VRR using only a single cable. A USB hub offers a USB-B port, a pair of both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports to support an array of peripherals, plus a USB Type-C (PD30W) port for good measure. Additionally, a built-in KVM switch simplifies the lives of those who juggle multiple PCs. Once users are all set up, the monitor’s 144 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms VRB response time provide satisfying gameplay.
The monitor’s VESA DisplayHDR™ 1000 Certification ensures that games look excellent for enthusiasts and that footage appears true-to-life for content creators. Outstanding local-dimming, peak 1,000 nits brightness and high contrast ratios help all of the details come to life, while the monitor’s Delta E<1 rating and 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut provide highly accurate color representation. Completing the experience, NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatibility keeps the monitor and GPU in lockstep, allowing for buttery-smooth gameplay with no stutters or tearing.
A monitor that makes statements, the Predator CG437K S comes with RGB lighting strips that can be synced to music and media. It also features a range of thoughtful technology that allows the monitor to adjust to each user’s environment: Acer ColorSense adjusts the screen’s temperature to match the ambience of the environment, Acer LightSense detects ambient lighting and adjusts the monitor’s brightness settings accordingly, and Acer ProxiSense automatically wakes the monitor when users are nearby or dims it when they aren’t.
Predator X38 S
The Predator X38 S is a 2300R curved UWQHD+ (3840x1600) monitor boasting a DCI-P3 98% wide color gamut, Delta E<2 rating and VESA DisplayHDR™ 600 Certification, qualifications that allow for breathtakingly realistic images. Bright scenes glimmer while dark ones retain the rich shades of black that make little details—and hidden enemies—pop out, even when shrouded in shadows. A 175 Hz refresh rate (overclocked) and response time as low as a 0.3 ms G-to-G let players jump right into the action without worrying about ghosting, while the display’s 37.5-inch Agile-Splendor IPS display ensures that everything looks great, even at wide viewing angles.
Predator Game Mode offers players eight pre-set (customizable) display modes to suit different genres of content, while Acer LightSense and Acer ColorSense make automatic adjustments to screen brightness and color temperature based on the environment. NVIDIA G-SYNC Esports Mode is a display preset designed for competitive gaming that ensures the lowest possible latency by turning off variable backlight and makes it easier to distinguish objects in dark areas by increasing black levels and fine tuning gamma levels.
The Predator X38 S also includes the NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer, a revolutionary system latency measurement tool that detects clicks coming from the mouse and then measures the time it takes for the resulting pixels (i.e., a gun muzzle flash) to change on screen, while NVIDIA G-SYNC ULTIMATE enables smooth, fast-paced gameplay by eliminating screen tearing, minimizing display stutter and cutting down on input lag.
The Predator X28 is a 28-inch UHD (3840x2160) monitor defined by a slim profile and narrow bezels that give it a refreshingly clean look. Its VESA DisplayHDR400™ Certified Agile-Splendor IPS display offers a 155 Hz refresh rate (overclocked) with a 1 ms G-to-G response time, all super smooth thanks to NVIDIA G-SYNC and G-SYNC Esports Mode. The monitor also features the NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer.
Acer LightSense, ColorSense and ProxiSense ensure that the monitor always look as good as possible, in any lighting. To offer a more comfortable viewing experience, BlueLightShield Pro manages high-energy wave lengths in order to selectively filter out blue light emissions while maintaining Delta E<1 color accuracy.
The Predator X28 is a TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe®-certified gaming monitor.

They’re backed by the NVIDIA Studio ecosystem, as well as exclusive driver technology that enhances creative apps for optimal levels of performance and reliability.
The new ConceptD 5 notebooks also include a 16:10 16-inch display, providing enough space for content creators to view their videos and edit tracks without having to resize taskbars or hide preview windows
“Our innovative ConceptD PC line has been extremely well received by content creators around the world,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “We’re pleased to expand our offerings, working with Intel and NVIDIA to support extremely talented creative professionals with even more powerful tools that bring efficiency, value and usefulness to their workflows.”
ConceptD 5 and ConceptD 5 Pro Notebooks
Designed for 2D and 3D design workflows, Acer’s all-metal ConceptD 5 notebooks (CN516-72G) pair the new 11th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series processors with up to an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3060 Laptop GPU. A ConceptD 5 Pro (CN516-72P) is also available, featuring either the NVIDIA® RTX™ A5000 or NVIDIA® RTX™ A3000 Laptop GPU, for creators looking for best-in-class performance and capabilities. The RTX A5000 Laptop GPU empowers creators with the ability to bring ray tracing and AI to the largest rendering, 8K editing, and multi-app workflows.
With up to 64 GB of DDR4 3200 Hz memory and 2 TB of PCIe Gen 4 M.2 SSDs in RAID 0, they provide all the power and storage creators need for handling 4K video, multiple monitors or 2D and 3D software rendering applications. Acer’s Vortex Flow, a triple-fan cooling layout (including a 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fan), is strategically organized to provide additional cooling to the CPU and GPU, allowing a bit more performance to be eked out under particularly demanding workloads.
Complementing all this power is a beautiful 16-inch 3K (3072x1920) PANTONE®-Validated display that supports 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, plus a color accuracy rating of Delta E<2. Its narrow bezel design provides an 87% screen to body ratio, while a 16:10 aspect ratio offers many benefits to professional creators. When compared to the more widely used 16:9 ratio, it is noticeably taller, giving creators more screen space for monitoring videos or utilizing multiple tracks without having to hide taskbars or resize preview windows.
The notebooks include a broad array of connectivity options: dual USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt™ 4 support, HDMI 2.1, an SD card carder (SD7.0), and more. A silent keyboard and touchpad designed for noise reduction removes one further small distraction that could interrupt a user’s creative flow, and the 6-inch wide Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchpad features a fingerprint reader for more convenient and secure logins.

In addition, the newest models include dual Thunderbolt™ 4 ports that offer 40 Gbps bidirectional bandwidth, quicker transfer speeds, and the ability to connect up to five Thunderbolt devices—all with only one port. Lastly, a new ultra-responsive Corning Gorilla Glass touchpad makes navigation smooth and effortless.
Other key features include a brilliant 15.6-inch 4K PANTONE-Validated touchscreen display that covers 100% of the Adobe® RGB color gamut and has a color accuracy rating of Delta E<2. Its adjustable display is enhanced by Acer’s innovative Ezel Hinge design which combines the familiarity and comfort of a traditional laptop with float, share, pad, stand and display modes that facilitate efficient and productive collaboration. It also includes a Wacom EMR pen, highly valued by artists who rely on the precision of a digital pen for sketching, animation and 3D modeling.
