Acer Releasing 49-Inch Ultrawide VA Monitor with 2,048 Local Dimming Zones and DisplayHDR 2000 Support

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.
