In letter : We often see gaming monitors and TVs with gaming-oriented features like variable refresh rate, but gaming projectors aren’t that common. However, Acer is changing that by launching two 4K gaming projectors with native support for the new consoles, allowing users to play at 1080p with a 120Hz refresh rate on the PS5 / Xbox Series X | S.
Acer’s two new gaming projectors are the GM712 and GD711. The first is a lamp projector that offers 4K resolution output for watching high resolution content or 1080p at 240Hz resolution suitable for fast gaming. Thanks to the variable refresh rate mode, users can also play games on their consoles at 1080p with 120Hz refresh rate smoothly without image tearing.
The screen can expand up to 300 inches diagonally, but Acer recommends 75 inches at 2m for the best experience. In addition, the projector has a maximum brightness of 3,600 ANSI lumens, support for HDR10, a contrast ratio of 10,000: 1 and DynamicBlack technology to preserve detail in darker scenes.
Like many other gaming displays, the GM712 has several game modes (color profiles) that users can choose from. The device also includes the Aptoide TV app store, an antimicrobial remote control, a built-in 10W speaker, and wireless connectivity to easily pair with other devices. This projector is ready for use 24/7 with a lamp life of up to 15,000 hours when activating the eco pro mode, which dims the lamp by 30%.
As for the GD711, this LED gaming projector shares a lot with the GM712. For example, it has a variable refresh rate mode and the Aptoide TV app store, and displays videos up to 4K or 1080p resolutions at 240Hz on PC and 120Hz on current generation consoles. . This projector also supports HDR10 content, 24/7 use and wireless connectivity, offers multiple color profiles, and comes with a built-in 10W speaker and antimicrobial remote control.
Although it is capable of displaying a 300 inch image, Acer recommends that you use the projector 2 m from a wall to display a 74 inch screen. Maximum brightness is rated at 1450 ANSI lumens, which is way lower than the GM712, but that’s probably because it’s an LED projector. For this same reason, however, this projector has a longer lifespan, reaching up to 30,000 hours with the eco mode enabled.
The contrast ratio of the GD711 is rated at 2,000,000: 1 (dynamic), which allows this model to cover up to 95% of the REC. Color gamut 709. For connectivity, the GD711 has 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, one audio out port and 3 USB-A ports.
The GM712 will be released in January for € 1,399 and the GD711 in December for € 1,499. Acer has not disclosed when the US region will have these projectors.
