If you've recently been building a 4K Ultra HD-ready gaming PC, Acer's latest gamer-oriented 4K display might be of interest to you. The imaginatively-named XB280HK from Acer is a 28-inch 4K panel that most importantly packs Nvidia G-Sync technology, which was announced back in October of last year.

G-Sync allows the display's refresh rate to sync with the graphics card's render rate, eliminating screen tearing and stutter at lower frame rates, while also reducing input lag. The technology does require an Nvidia GeForce GPU to function, as you'd expect for a proprietary Nvidia solution.

Aside from G-Sync support, the XB280HK packs an LED-lit LCD panel with a resolution of 3840 x 2160, 170-degree viewing angles, DisplayPort 1.2 input as well as four USB 3.0 ports. It also comes with Acer's low dimming technology, which turns down the brightness to just 15% while in low light conditions.

For those of you who are environmentally conscious, the XB280HK is made with recycled plastic and is reasonably energy efficient. It comes with an ergonomic stand, labeled "ErgoStand" by Acer, that supports height adjustment and 40-degrees of tilting.

The XB280HK, part of Acer's XB0 line of gaming monitors, will be available sometime in Q2 in the Americas, EMEA, Japan and Taiwan for an undisclosed price.
