Acer has revealed three new Predator gaming monitors and one new gaming notebook with a curved screen.
During today’s IFA conference in Berlin, Acer detailed its new line of Predator gaming devices that each have integrated eye tracking hardware from Tobii. The company showcased three new gaming monitors: the Predator Z27IT 27″ Curved Screen Gaming Monitor, the Predator XB251HQT 24.5″ Flat Screen Gaming Monitor, and the Predator XB271HUT 27″ Flat Screen Gaming Monitor, as well as the world’s very first curved screen gaming notebook, the Predator 21 X.
The Predator 21 X will sport a 21″ curved G-Sync enabled display powered by dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 in SLI and five fans, as well as a 7th generation Intel Core processor.
These additions to Acer’s well-respected gaming brand are the first to include the eye tracking technology that allows gamers to interact with their environments more seamlessly, allowing players to look around freely in any direction without having to change their character’s camera perspective.
Although eye tracking has yet to be widely adopted in games, there are over 40 Tobii Eye Tracking enabled games already on the market, including The Division, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Master of Orion. We’re told that Tobii is actively seeking out PC game developers and studios to expand the technology’s presence in the gaming landscape. According to the company, they’re expecting over 100 eye tracking enabled titles by the end of 2017.
Whether the Acer Predator 21 X is the right gaming monitor for you depends on your needs and the type of games you’re playing.
