Acer has started shipments of its ConceptD CP7271K P professional monitor designed for developers of fast-paced color-critical HDR content such as animation, games, and movies. The monitor brings together a 4K Ultra-HD resolution, an accurate color reproduction, a 144 Hz refresh rate, VESA’s DisplayHDR 1000, and Pantone Validated certifications as well as NVIDIA’s G-Sync Ultimate (former G-Sync HDR) variable refresh rate technology.

Aimed at color-critical workloads, the ConceptD CP7271K P uses a premium 27-inch IPS panel of a 3840×2160 resolution that features 600 nits native brightness, 1000 nits peak HDR brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 4 ms GtG response time, 178° viewing angles, and a variable refresh rate of up to 120 Hz (that can be overclocked to 144 Hz). The professional monitor comes factory calibrated to a Delta <1 accuracy, it can display 1.07 billion colors as well as reproduce 99% of the AdobeRGB and 93% of the DCI-P3 color spaces (required by professionals working with today's digital content). In addition, it is Pantone Validated.

Gaming displays supporting NVIDIA’s G-Sync Ultimate technology feature a quantum dot-enhanced full-area local dimming (FALD) backlighting for ultimate color clarity and high contrasts. For some reason, Acer does not advertise either technology in case of the ConceptD CP7271K P (which does not automatically mean that it does not use similar technologies). Meanwhile, the monitor carries VESA’s DisplayHDR 1000 badge, so it has to feature not only 1000 nits peak brightness, but also at least 0.05/0.10 nits blacks (corner/tunnel) that require some kind of local dimming, according to VESA.

There is one important thing to point out about NVIDIA’s G-Sync Ultimate implementation on modern monitors. Formally, all of the displays carrying this badge support a 4K (or similar) resolution and an up to 144 Hz variable refresh rate. Meanwhile, since these displays connect to host PCs using a DisplayPort 1.4 interface with its bandwidth limitations, chroma subsampling is required beyond 98 Hz for 4K HDR content. That said, although G-Sync Ultimate LCDs feature a 120 Hz or 144 Hz maximum refresh rate, colors will not look best at these rates.

When it comes to connectivity, the monitor has a DisplayPort 1.4, an HDMI 2.0 input, and a five-port USB 3.0 hub. In addition, it has two 4 W speakers.

As with virtually all professional displays, the Acer ConceptD CP7271K P can be adjusted to its user’s environment and comes with a stand that can regulate height, tilt, and swivel. Furthermore, to guarantee consistent color quality, the LCD comes with a lighting hood.

    Gamers don't need 100% Adobe RGB coverage and Delta <1 color accuracy
    Professionals don't need 144Hz@4K

    So who is this for? I'd rather buy a calibrated 4K monitor AND ultrawide gaming monitor for much less money than this. (And I already did)

    This is for who wants best of both worlds. A 120/144hz is more pleasant and smooth to look than 60hz. Also a perfect multiple of 24. Reply

    As it was said in the article. Video and animation editors... so this is a workhorse and They cost more... this is not for Gaming. Ofcourse you can game with this, but... why?
    If your daysalary for making high guality videostaff is something like $1000-2000, this will be cheap investment! Pixar and companies like that definily would use so,thing like that.

    Why? Because games are not only about framerate, beautiful color reproduction also enhance the experience. Reply

    Video and animations don't need 144hz, let alone 100hz
    Games do not need precise color nor >sRGB color space

    They might not all *need* >sRGB but it is a desirable feature now, and pretty soon it will be standard. Even if many monitors cannot display it - because the high-end does. Reply

    Some people do both color accuracy requiring work and game on a single PC... You can look on that as well as saving desktop space, make use of one side of features for work and other for fun... Reply

    With that money I can buy TWO monitors that are better at each worlds. That's what I call the best of both worlds. Reply

    This is a great monitor. I'm glad to see IPS panel and controller that can do what this does. The problem though is the 27" size. It's too small for content creation, and if I'm spending the money, I would want at least 32" 34" preferable. Reply
