The image quality and response time characteristics of OLED monitors make them attractive for entertainment uses, including gaming. The Acer Predator X32 X3 combines a high resolution with high refresh rate, with additional lower resolution and even higher refresh rate operating mode. The monitor has aggressive ‘gamery’ styling, with dark grey coated metal tripod-style stand base and mixed grey and black elements along the neck. The top and side bezels are dual-stage, with slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen plus thin hard plastic outer part. An ‘active area’ (overprovisioning of pixels) between the image and panel border is used for the ‘screen move’ feature, one of the ‘OLED screen protection’ mechanisms. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick beneath the centre of the bottom bezel.

Aggressive styling

A 31.5″ 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) LG Display WOLED panel is used with up to 240Hz supported at the native resolution and up to 480Hz at 1920 x 1080 (Full HD or 1080p). An improved RGWB subpixel layout is included, designed to reduce text fringing. VRR is supported via Adaptive-Sync (and presumably HDMI 2.1 VRR), allowing technologies such as Nvidia ‘G-SYNC Compatible’ and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro to be used. A matte anti-glare screen surface is used whilst a 1.5m:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles and 10-bit colour are specified. The screen is flicker-free with 99% DCI-P3 colour gamut specified alongside peak brightness values of 275 cd/m² (SDR typical), 450 cd/m² (SDR peak, with ABL) and 1000 cd/m² (HDR peak, 3% window). A ‘Constant Brightness’ setting can be activated which avoids distracting ABL (Automatic Brightness Limiter) behaviour under SDR. A factory calibration is included with specified DeltaE <1.

HDR10 support is offered with per-pixel illumination as well as the 10-bit colour capability and generous DCI-P3 gamut being put to work. The monitor can output decent bursts of brightness under HDR, too. A 0.03ms grey to grey response time is specified – pay little attention to the exact figure, though OLED technology is known for its exceptional pixel responsiveness. The stand attaches centrally via a quick-release mechanism and offers full adjustability, including a generous 150mm (5.91 inches) height adjustment and pivot into portrait. Provision for 100 x 100mm VESA mounting is also included. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), 2 HDMI 2.1 ports, DP 1.4 (with DSC), USB-C (90W PD, DP Alt Mode, upstream data), a 3.5mm audio output, USB-C (downstream), 3 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports and Type-B upstream. KVM is supported for easy sharing of connected USB peripherals and display input switching between 2 systems. 2 x 5W speakers are included for potentially fairly rich sound output.

Further details can be found in this press release. The monitor is due Q4 2024 for ~$1200 USD (€1400).
