Acer Launches Predator XN253QX Monitor with 240 Hz & 0.4 ms G2G Response Time

Acer has introduced its new Predator XN253QX display, which is aimed at professional gamers who are looking for top-tier response times. The Predator XN253QX has a maximum refresh rate of 240 Hz, features a response time of 0.4 ms, and support NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology.

The Acer Predator XN253QX monitor is based on an 8-bit TN panel featuring a 1920×1080 resolution, 400 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and so on. The key features of the panel are its maximum refresh rate of 240 Hz, a 3 ms native response time as well as a 0.4 ms gray-to-gray response time. Acer notes that the display uses its “Fast Liquid Crystal” technology, but does not really go into detail about what the technology is.


The latest gaming monitor from Acer also supports NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology with a 30 – 240 Hz range (when operating over DisplayPort), which will certainly please demanding gamers looking for flexibility in their high refresh rate monitors. Like other displays for that market, the Predator XN253QX LCD also has numerous features for gamers, including aim point and dark boost. Last but not least, the display also has an adjustable stand, as well as VESA mounts.

When it comes to connectivity, the Predator XN253QX has a DisplayPort 1.2a as well as HDMI 1.4 connectors. As added bonuses, the LCD also has stereo speakers as well as a USB 3.0 hub.
