On paper, Acer's X27 display has everything you want, plus a fan to cool the controller when you are displaying HDR content. The 144Hz GSYNC display is 4K and sports a DisplayHDR 1000 rating, but there are of course limitations. For instance 4:4:4 RGB at 4K is limited to 120Hz in the SDR and 98 Hz in HDR mode thanks to the bandwidth limits of DisplayPort, if you want to max out your refresh rete you are reduced to 4:2:2.
"Well, the Asus isn’t the only such monitor on the market. The new Acer Predator X27 uses the same AU Optronics panel, so they’re both equipped with the same specifications, but that doesn’t mean they perform the same as I’ll discuss a bit later."
