Acer unveiled several gaming displays prior to CES 2024, with the standout being the Predator Z57—a 57-inch, 120Hz curved display boasting a resolution of 7680x2160 pixels. Featuring MiniLED backlighting for enhanced contrast, it is set to release in the second quarter at $2,499.99 in the US and €2,399 in Europe.

The Z57 includes AMD FreeSync Premium for reduced screen-tearing, a 90W USB-C PD port, dual HDMI 2.1 ports, DisplayPort 1.3, and a built-in KVM switch. With 2,304 dimming zones, HDR, and a 1,000-nit peak brightness, it supports simultaneous display of video from multiple sources using picture-in-picture or side-by-side split screen mode.

The display is reported to encompass 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and it is VESA-compliant for wall mounting, requiring a stud finder for secure installation. Acer's latest display features dual 10W speakers and a versatile stand that allows tilting, swiveling, as well as height adjustment.

Comparisons with the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 by Samsung, announced around the same time last year, are valid for the Predator Z57. While both are quite similar displays, there are notable distinctions. The G9 boasts a higher refresh rate at 240Hz, twice that of the Z57, and more dimming zones, with 2,392 compared to Acer's 88 zones. It's worth noting that the Odyssey Neo G9 has recently been on sale in the US for just under $2,000, making it $500 less than the announced price tag for the Predator Z57, at least for the time being.
