Acer launches two new Nitro XF2 gaming monitors with 240Hz refresh rateToday, Acer revived the Nitro XF2 series of gaming monitors by announcing two new models with 240Hz refresh rate. In November 2018, Acer unveiled the Nitro XF272U. We've had information for the first new model - Nitro XF272 X - for a month. This is a 27-inch monitor with a TN panel that offers 3 ms response time. The latter can drop to 0.2 ms GTG when using the overdrive mode. The second monitor is the 24.5-inch Acer Nitro XF252Q with 0.3 ms GTG response time in overdrive mode. It was announced back in May.

The rest of the specifications of the two new models are identical - 240Hz refresh rate thanks to AMD FreeSync support, a maximum brightness of 400 nits, 1920 x 1080 native resolution, support for HDR10 content. Gamers and eSports will be happy to know the monitors arrive with a built-in black boost offering 11 levels of optimization, six-colour axis adjustment and six pre-set display modes. Nitro XF272 X will go on sale later in August with MSRP of $449.99. The Acer Nitro XF252Q is already available on Amazon priced at $349. Source
