There are some good news for AMD GPU users wanting a 1080p 144Hz gaming monitor with FreeSync. Such displays already exist, like the Nixeus NX-VUE24 for instance, but it’s always good to have more displays to choose from. Acer is soon releasing the Acer XF270H, which is essentially the FreeSync version of the XB270H. Specifications will be almost identical, except the Adaptive Sycn technology they support, of course. No details yet on FreeSync range.
Acer has not yet made a product page for this display yet, but it is already available for pre-order on a wide variety of online retailers. An unconfirmed release date is beginning of December 2015, in the middle of the Christmas shopping season. A release date later than Christmas would result in much fewer sales of the monitor. Acer confirmed to us that the Acer XF270HU is the FreeSync version of the XB270HU and that it will soon be released along with a product page on the official Acer website and on those grounds, we assume the same applies for this monitor.
The Acer XF270H will adopt a 1080p resolution with a TN panel. This allows for a 1ms response time, which eliminates ghosting effects and a crisper gameplay. An incredible 144Hz refresh rate is supported by this monitor, which will result in a much clearer and smoother gameplay, and will give you an advantage of non-144Hz gamers, as your screen will refresh faster. The TN panel will, however, give bad viewing angles and bad color accuracy.
You probably already know of the AMD FreeSync technology that this monitor supports via the DisplayPort. By syncronizing the refresh rate of your monitor to the amount of frames per second that your GPU renders, screen tearing is eliminated without the cost of any performance. Other noteworthy features include VESA mount support, Flicker-less Technology to prevent eye strain after longer periods of usage and an ergonomic stand with tilt, swivel and height adjustment options.
On the back side you will find a DP port, DVI-D (double-link) connector and a HDMI port. The DisplayPort has to be used for AMD FreeSync to function.
