Posted February 14, 2018 05:16:33 The Acer Predator XB270HU is a 144Hz gaming monitor that looks like it could be the future.
The monitor uses AMD’s CrossFireX technology, which is designed to enable multi-GPU setups to work smoothly.
It comes with an AMD CrossFire-X bridge, which allows two GPUs to share a single GPU while the other is used for video playback.
The company also offers a special Nvidia GPU bridge, the Nvidia SLI bridge.
If you’re planning to build your own gaming PC, it makes sense to pick a monitor with Nvidia SLI support.
The Predator XA270H is also an Nvidia SLI monitor.
Its price tag is $150.
If that’s too steep, the Predator X-A270 will run you $100 more.
We’ve had some success with Nvidia-compatible monitors, but the Predator’s CrossfireX technology will make it much easier to build and maintain.
If the Acer PredatorX is too expensive, the XB250HU will be your best bet.
The XB230HU, which features a 144 Hz refresh rate, also has Nvidia SLI.
It will run $150 more than the XA250HV and the XE230HV, but it has a wider viewing angle and the CrossFire bridge makes it easier to add other GPUs.
The Acer Predator has a $149 price tag.
We’re sure you’ll like it, but we’ve yet to try it out ourselves.
