It wasn’t too long ago that Taobao unveiled the complete specifications for Samsung’s updated Odyssey G9 monitor, but the Chinese electronics retailer has now listed Acer’s equivalent: the EI491CRG9, a 49-inch ultrawide display that appears to leverage the Odyssey’s exact same 5120 x 1440 VA panel with 240 Hz refresh rate and Mini LED backlight with 2,048 local dimming zones. Acer’s EI491CRG9 also boasts NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility and VESA DisplayHDR 2000 certification, which means that it can achieve intense brightness levels of up to 2,000 cd/m2 with HDR content. U.S. pricing is unclear, but the display will cost 14,999 RMB ($2,300) in China.
The screen has a native 240Hz refresh rate which is supported through and to help support the high resolution and refresh rate, the screen is listed on Taobao as being G-sync Compatible which means it uses adaptive sync for VRR from both AMD and NVIDIA systems. The NVIDIA G-sync Compatible certification is presumably pending given it’s not yet listed on NVIDIA’s website as it is so new. AMD FreeSync Premium Pro certification is also listed and expected.
