During the recent [email protected] Global Press Conference, Acer unveils new additions to its award-winning gaming monitor portfoilio. The new Predator and Acer Nitro monitors sport a TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe certification—a first of its kind. These monitors are also designed to selectively filter out blue light while still maintaining crisp and vivid colors.
The fresh batch includes the new Predator XB3 series, a line of FHD (1920x1080) or QHD (2560x1440) displays that feature high refresh rates and VESA DisplayHDR™ certifications. From there, each monitor has been optimized around different criteria: The XB273U NV is Eyesafe-certified, the XB253Q GW boasts an impressive 280 Hz refresh rate (overclockable) and 0.5 ms (G to G) response time, and the XB323U GX is remarkably color-accurate with 99% Adobe® RGB coverage.
Next up is the Predator X34 GS, a monitor that extends users' peripheral view with a giant 34-inch curved UWQHD (3440x1440) screen, working in tandem with an Agile-Splendor IPS panel that delivers clear images even at wide viewing angles. NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible, it renders smooth action illuminates the finer details to create sharper images, so no important targets or details are missed, while 98% DCI-P3 spectrum coverage brings images to life in vivid color. Two integrated 7 watt speakers eliminate the need for external speakers.
Two new 27-inch Nitro series models were also launched; the Acer Nitro XV272U KV and Nitro XV272 LV. The two are ideal for casual gamers who want to get their money’s worth. Both are Eyesafe-certified to help prevent eye fatigue and further viewing comfort, and an ergonomic stand lets gamers find just the right viewing angle.
Planet9’s In-Game Live AI Translator with Game Jargon
Planet9 is a next generation eSports platform, partly competitive and partly social, designed to provide an open community for casual and amateur players who want to improve their skills and take steps towards going pro. The platform helps players to connect with others, via teams and social clubs; to improve their skills, via in-depth feedback on gameplay in the form of statistics and, soon, coaching; and to experience organized gameplay, via casual or ranked scrimmages and competitive tournaments for most games. In-game overlays will be supported for League of Legends on launch in late 2020 or early 2021, and support will be made available for additional titles in the future.
Adding to the excitement is the SigridWave, an In-Game Live AI Translator for Planet9. This leverages deep learning technologies to break language barriers and facilitate communication amongst gamers around the world. Integrated into Planet9’s desktop client, SigridWave is booted up while in a game lobby and then functions as a customizable in-game overlay. When in-game, SigridWave employs Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology to recognize utterances and convert them into strings of text. This text is then ran through a Neural Machine Translation (NMT) technology, which has so far been trained with over 10 million bilingual sentence pairs, enabling it to understand the terminology associated with specific games (such as “ADS” or “camping”) and learn how players express themselves.
SigridWave will have a closed beta in Q4 2020, during which time it will be available for two-way translation between English and Mandarin in a number of major FPS titles such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
