    In a bit of a surprising move, Acer last week announced that its 4K HDR Predator X27 gaming display would be delayed to Q1 2018, missing the important holiday sales season. The monitor, based around an NVIDIA reference design for a G-Sync HDR display that was in turn revealed back at CES 2017, has been eagerly anticipated, and until now was expected by the end of this year. Meanwhile, ASUS's ROG Swift PG27UQ, which features virtually the same specifications, has also been delayed to 2018.

    There is talk that the implementation of the HDMI 2.1 standard is what's holding up not only these displays potentially but some of samsung and LG's as well as others. But i'm curious... being g-sync, they won't have HDMI inputs (which kinda sucks)... so that wouldn't make much sense, since HDMI 2.1 makes VRR manditory which is Freesync.

    No way am I dropping the funds to push 4K @ 144Hz on a 27” monitor.

    It's better to wait for 4K to become more mainstream then do that.

    But by then 8K will be all the rage.
