Acer has officially launched its latest FreeSync 2 HDR monitor; a dual-wide monitor that offers support for almost anything a user will want. From high-refresh rates to Adaptive-Sync compatibility and HDR support, it has all. The Acer EI491CR Pbmiiipx, a 49-inch 3840×1080 monitor supports both FreeSync 2 and VESA DisplayHDR 400.
The title already hints most of it, the Acer EI491CR is one of the most breathtaking monitors to grace the side of 2019, ticking most boxes considered relevant for a great gaming experience. Looking at this monitor’s specifications, we can see that FreeSync 2 HDR is supported alongside 120Hz refresh rates over HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2, though 144Hz refresh rates are also possible when using this screen’s overclock mode. Acer also lists a variable refresh rate range of 48-120FPS, which should expand to 48-144Hz on overclock mode.
Acer EI491CR monitor will enable ultra fluid gaming, especially when paired with FreeSync 2 with the most magnificent experience. FreeSync 2 also makes an appearance in the monitor’s display of HDR content, via its VESA HDR 400 certification. On the Typical contrast, it stands at 3000:1 and with a typical brightness of 400 cd/m² with color coverage.
The majestic resolution and aspect ratio of this Acer EI491CR display makes it equivalent to two 1080p monitors set side-by-side, which makes it look like a single screen alternative to a dual-monitor setup, indeed great news for the ultra-wide game lovers. Mostly, such a structure with two displays have a bezel in-between the twinned monitors, making it unusable for most modern games; Ultra-wide Acer monitors mitigate this issue entirely.
Acer has listed its 49-inch EI491CR Pbmiiipx display with a price tag of $1199.99 (Rs. 83,453) in the US.
