Holy hertz! Our jaws dropped when Asus first announced a gaming monitor with a 360 Hz refresh rate back in January. Alienware, which has already pushed the limits on gaming displays with its massive OLED venture, is also on the 360 Hz bandwagon. Acer won’t be left out of the 360-Hz circle: the Acer Predator X25 announced today will also arrive with the mind-boggling 360 Hz max refresh.

All that said, we’re not sure which vendor will be the first to actually sell a 360 Hz monitor. Acer didn’t share a release date or price for the Predator X25.

We do know that the monitor will be 24.5 inches with 1080p resolution. For those with the best 4K gaming monitors on their mind, that doesn’t sound like a lot of pixels, but this is expected for hitting 360 Hz. The monitor is supposed to fight screen tearing with the help of Nvidia G-Sync. Plus, it’s not like there’s a graphics card that is even close to being able to push 4K at close to 360 Hz anyway.

If a top-of-the-line refresh rate isn’t enough of a premium feature for you, the Predator X25 throws in additional luxuries. With AdaptiveLight, the monitor can project a light onto your light that matches what's on your screen. With LightSense, that light can also sync up with music. The screen can also change its brightness based on the amount of lighting in the room. Meanwhile, Acer’s ProxiSense technology serves as a pseudo-mother, reminding you to take a break from gaming (go out and meet someone nice!) after a certain amount of time.

360 hz refresh rate is for marketing. No one can distinguish between 144hz and 240hz so let alone 360hz. Let alone though, can you tell the difference between 144 fps and 240 fps? I can't.

In some YouTube tests although with few participating in it showed promising results for ESports.
The lower response rate caused by the higher frame per second allowed slightly faster/better detection of target enemy even between 144 hz and 240 hz.
But I personallythink it's nearly useless for non ESports users
