AMD Freesync Review

Acer XG270HU

There are a few Freesync supporting monitors and we listed some on page one. For our review we were kindly sent the Acer XG270HU. A fantastic looking monitor with a tiny bezel and positively mammoth screen. Supremely affordable and with the sweet spot resolution of 2560x1440 it ticks every box.

The days of bezels as large as the screen itself are behind us, and the Acer takes this to new heights with a barely visible bezel surrounding 27 inches of Freesync glory. Freesync itself runs through the DisplayPort, but the XG270HU supports DVI-D and HDMI too.

With our regular graphics test rig equipped with the ASUS R9 290X Matrix and plugged into the Acer we're ready to discover if the Freesync really is free from performance overheads and capable of delivering smooth and fast gaming.

That monitor looks much better in more real lighting then all the promo shots made it look. Do want.
Its a shame I'm running a 780Ti. This is pretty much what I want from a monitor (ignoring the TN bit) and I'd grab it if my card was from the red side.Quote
