Acer has a monitor that supports variable refresh rates

Acer Predator's gaming lineup now includes two 4K monitors, the GM712 and the GD711.

The company initially focused on the GD711 to share the most information, which is an LED display with a brightness of 1,450 ANSI lumens (or 4,000 LED lumens) and HDR10 support.

GD711 supports 4K resolution in standard mode. However, it has a Variable Frame Rate (VRR) mode. This provides smoother picture and choppy performance on high-performance platforms (including Xbox Series X and Fast PC).

In this mode, the device downgrades the resolution from 4K to 1080p. But it can increase the platform refresh rate to 120Hz or the computer refresh rate to 240Hz. In particular, it can change the refresh rate dynamically as needed.

The PlayStation 5 platform supports 1080p to 120Hz, but this does not yet apply to VRR.

And it's hard to find another monitor in the market that supports VRR. So this seems to be a huge advantage that distinguishes Acer from other models.

The company said the GD711 has a variety of possible projection sizes. However, it recommends using a 100-inch screen at a distance of 2.6 meters.

The device has a built-in Aptoide TV app store. This model has two HDMI 2.0 ports, an audio out, and three USB-A ports. The average life expectancy in eco mode is about 30,000 hours, in standard mode it can reach 20,000 hours.

The company has not announced a planned launch date in the United States. However, it is slated to arrive in China in November and will be priced at CNY 11,999. It arrived in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in December at a price of 1,499 euros.

Acer announces 4K projector

Coming back to the GM712, this is a 4K pear-based gaming projector that's much brighter than the GD711 and has a brightness of 3600 ANSI lumens.

It arrived in China in November at a price of 10,999 yuan, and then arrived in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in January 2022 at a price of 1,399 euros.

Even if the price is a little cheaper. But the GM712 is heavier than the GD711. It also has a longer life, around 5,000 hours in Standard mode and up to 12,000 hours in ExtremeEco mode.

The device has many features of the GD711, including variable refresh rate, HDR10, and supports PC refresh rates up to 240Hz.
