After the successful launch of the latest Nitro monitors, Acer is now announcing the release of three new HDR Gaming monitors into their ever-popular Predator gaming portfolio. The new monitors will offer something for everyone, including console gamers, general users, and hardcore competitive gamers.

The three monitors in question are the CG437K S, X38 S, and X28 – all bringing a different set of features, specifications, and benefits to the table.

Predator CG437K S

The first of the three monitors comes in the shape of a massive 42-inch, UHD, G-sync compatible monitor – offering up excellent versatility and flexibility when it comes to user demographic. The large-screen monitor offers up dual HDMI 2.1 ports, allowing console gamers to relish in 4K gameplay @ 144Hz via a single cable. It also offers up a complete USB hub, containing dual USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, not to mention a USB Type-C (PD30W) as well.


Alongside this, the CG437K S also offers up VESA DisplayHDR1000 certification, a 1ms VRB response time, and 144Hz refresh rate. Whilst this monitor does come with local dimming, it isn’t clear how many zones that will cover. That said, users can expect an impressive 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 spectrum – alongside a pre-calibrated average deltaE <1.

The CG437K S will offer a carefully thought-out design that accentuates the size of the panel. RGB lighting strips can be synced to music and media – presumably through some kind of software suite.

Predator Cg437K S Pricing and Availability: Consumers can expect to see the CG437K S hit shelves in North America by November this year, starting from $1,799 (€1,599).

Predator X38 S

The X38 S is an esports-oriented monitor that boasts an impressive 37.5″, UWQHD+ IPS panel which showcases excellent colors and HDR 600 certification. Alongside stunning picture quality, the Acer X38 S will also come equipped with a0 175Hz (via OSD overclock) refresh rate, lightning-quick 0.3ms GTG response time, and 2300R curvature. That’s pretty much everything you could want for an incredibly immersive gaming experience.

For those that like to prioritize color reproduction alongside gaming performance, fear not, the X38 S is pre-calibrated an average DeltaE <2. Furthermore, with a 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, users will be immersed in stunning color recreation right out of the box.

Like all Predator monitors, the X38 S offers a whole host of preset game modes, allowing you to alter the performance and colors of the panel to your preferred choice. Further features include Acer’s Lightsense (auto-brightness feature), Acer Colorsense, and support for Nvidia’s Reflex Latency Analyzer – a revolutionary system that measures the latency between mouse clicks and changes on screen. Lastly, enable G-Sync Ultimate for a smooth, tear-free gaming experience that really doesn’t disappoint.

Predator X38 S Pricing and Availability: Consumers can expect to see the X38 S hit shelves in North America by September this year, starting from $1,999 (€2,199).

Predator X28

Lastly, we have the Predator x28 – a 28″ UHD monitor that is defined by it’s sender profile and even thinner bezels. It will feature a VESA DisplayHDR400 certified IPS panel that has a 155Hz refresh rate, 1ms GTG response time, and G-Sync VRR support – including Esports mode. Like the X38 S, the X28 will also support Nvidia’s Reflex Latency Analyzer feature – allowing users to check input lag as they game.


Further features include Acer LigthSense, ColorSense, and ProxiSense – ensuring that your monitor is always optimized for the lighting conditions you’re working/gaming in. To offer a more comfortable viewing experience, Acer has also equipped this panel with BLueLightShield Pro – reducing any harmful blue light that could be detrimental to your eye’s health.

Predator X28 Pricing and Availability: Consumers can expect to see the X28 hit shelves in North America by August this year, starting from $1,299 (€1,199).
