The technology would use Autopilot sensors to determine when drivers are going to make a turn and signal automatically.
Look, you shouldn’t preorder anything technology related. Not games, not Teslas, and definitely not bleeding-edge computer hardware, which usually debuts with bleeding-edge quirks only made apparent after reviews hit. I shouted that opinion from the rooftops when AMD’s Ryzen CPUs launched with okay gaming performance. And the very day that Nvidia announced its new GeForce RTX graphics cards, I said you shouldn’t preorder those, either.
What tears couples apart isn’t always the Big Things. Often, it’s the everyday things, the stuff that you feel like you should be able to brush off, but trying to do so only makes you angrier, and so you brew resentment in silence until one early morning when some unrelated annoyance makes you explode with the words…
Consider the 60Hz barrier for ultra-high definition screens officially broken. Acer announced not one, but two new 4K, 144Hz gaming monitors at IFA in Berlin on Wednesday for folks who like their frame rates high and temperatures low. One, the $1,299 Predator XB273K, supports Nvidia’s gameplay-smoothing G-Sync technology. The other, the $899 Nitro XV273K, plays nice with AMD’s rival FreeSync tech.
On paper, the Predator XB273K matches many of the key specifications of Acer’s Predator X27, a $2,000 display that we dubbed the Holy Grail of gaming monitors in our review. It’s got 4K resolution, a blazing-fast 144Hz maximum refresh rate (though that’s probably when overclocked), G-Sync, and even DisplayHDR 400 certification.
