The Acer Predator X32Q is a fresh new 4K 144Hz+ gaming monitor on steroids. Its not OLED, but its mini LED array should make up for the disadvantages it has versus the popular panel type. We know everyone has their hearts and minds set on OLED monitors as an upgrade for next year, but if the price is right, then mini-LED models like this are still very viable in the near future.
Acer Predator X32Q – Tale of the Tape
The Acer Predator X32Q starts just like any typical 4K gaming monitor with a 32-inch panel, a 3840 x 2160 resolution, and a 150Hz boosted rate. Acer confirmed that this model is using a new IPS module from BOE and their IPS-ADS technology. It also promises a 1200:1 contrast, and it will include a potent 1152-zone mini-LED backlight.
That FALD unit is touted to produce up to 1200 cd/m2 peak HDR luminance and up to 99% Adobe RGB coverage. The previous model, the X32 FP, only has 576 zones, but it has a slightly higher 160Hz overclocked refresh rate. This monitor is certified for HDR 1000, so it is also going to support 10-bit color processing for more vibrant images.
The Acer Predator X32Q will also ship with sought-after hardware in the form of connectivity ports. It will use DisplayPort 1.4 DSC as the primary, but it also includes two HDMI 2.1 ports and a 65-watt USB-C slot for work laptops. You also get a host of USB ports and KVM support which will enable seamless multi-device uses across the board.
These, along with a full-adjustable stand and 7-watt speakers make it a formidable pick for gamers who want top-shelf performance without paying OLED-levels of money. Unfortunately, in-depth information, pricing, and US/global availability are still up in the air. Information only came from Chinese retailer Taobao, so nothing is final yet, at least for the US and the rest of the Western hemisphere.
