Acer has launched a pair of new gaming monitors as part of its Nitro XF2 Series. These monitors have a lot in common but vary simply by screen size and pricing. Headline qualities of the Acer Nitro XF2 Series gaming monitors are their 240Hz, FreeSync, 1ms, 1080p, HDR10, TN panels. Thanks to this spec, Acer says that the Nitro XF2 monitors area a great choice for gamers, and multimedia and productivity applications too.
"Boasting a rapid 240Hz refresh rate that shortens frame rendering time and AMD Radeon FreeSync that syncs the monitor's and graphics card's frames, the Nitro XF2 Series are extremely responsive and support stunningly clear and fluid visuals even when the gaming gets frenetic," wrote Acer in a press release.
