Nitro VG0 and RG0 Series Monitors
These new IPS5 monitors with AMD Radeon™ FreeSync1 satisfy gamers’ need for speed with a blazing fast response time of up to 1ms Visual Response Boost (VRB) for smooth gameplay without breaking the bank. The Acer Nitro VG0 series is available with 27-, 23.8- and 21.5-inch panels delivering true-to-life color, and resolutions of 4K UHD, WQHD or Full HD. The ultra-thin Acer Nitro RG0 series boasts a sleek .27-inch thin profile and is offered in 27- and 23.8-inch models. Both models feature sophisticated but functional design that have earned them 2018 Red Dot Design Awards.
Boasting AMD Radeon™ FreeSync, the new Nitro monitor’s frames sync with the graphics card’s frames to eliminate screen tearing and minimize lag, allowing for smooth gaming. Integrated Visual Response Boost™ (VRB) decreases blur in fast moving images to achieve the effect of a 1ms MPRT, along with up to 144 Hz refresh rates. Integrated 6-axis color adjustment lets gamers fine-tune color, hue and saturation to best suit the game at hand, while built-in black boost enables gamers to select from 11 black level options to optimize visual advantage and clearly spot enemies, duck for cover, or navigate curves on a race track.
The new Nitro RG0 series’ [email protected] resolution delivers excellent visual detail, and is perfect for 1080p Full HD gaming, multimedia, and productivity applications, including Blu-ray Disc console gaming and widescreen cinematic playback.
The IPS panels provide accurate views even at wide angles of up to 178 degrees horizontally and vertically. For optimum viewing angles, the monitors can tilt from –5 to 20 degrees [–5 to 15 degrees for RG0 series]. Meeting 72 percent of the NTSC standard and delivering a 250 cd/m2 brightness, Acer Nitro monitors produce vibrant colors and images. Two 2W stereo speakers4 deliver quality audio and HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort ports4 connect to a wide array of PCs to support powerful sound effects.
Integrated Acer Game Mode has eight pre-set display modes to optimize visuals depending on the type of content being displayed. Display modes include Action, Racing, Sport, User, Standard, ECO, Graphic and Movie. Settings are easily accessed through a hotkey or the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu.
Acer VisionCare encompassing Flickerless, BlueLightShield, ComfyView and low-dimming technologies enhance viewing comfort during long gaming periods. Outfitted with a VESA mount, the monitors can be hung on a wall to free up desk space, leaving more room for game sticks, mice and more. In addition, a ZeroFrame design maximizes viewing area and supports near seamless multi-monitor setups
