Acer gaming products includes the two 4k projectors, the GM712 and GD711. The GD711 gaming projector that is the one Acer choose to share the most information on and it will be one of the first projectors to support variable refresh rate (VRR) mode.
It is an LED projector that boasts up to 1450 ANSI lumens of the brightness with HDR10 support. This supports the 4K resolution in standard mode but it stands out with the variable refresh rate mode, that will display a smoother image as performance fluctuates in powerful consoles and it includes the Xbox series X and fast personal computers.
In this mode the resolution down from 4k to 1080p resolution, but boosts the refresh rate to 120 Hz for consoles or up to 240 Hz for the personal computers and notably can dramatically shift refresh rate as needed. PS5 supports up to 120 Hz at 1080p but there is not working yet with VRR.

There are no projectors in the markets that supports the variable refresh rate so it seems like the big feature that Acer has in it court, and it differentiate itself from other models. GD711 gaming projector by Acer has the wide range of possible throw sizes as it recommends a 100 inch screen thrown from 8.85 feet away.
This model having the 2 HDMI 2.0 ports with audio out port and three USB A ports. The expected life span is approximately 30000 hours in Eco mode and up to 20000 hours in standard mode. for US Acer has not shared the expected release window but it is set to land in China in November for, 11999 Chinese Yuan and in Europe it will release in December.
Coming to GM712 it is a lamp based 4k gaming projector and that is far brighter than GD711 having 3600 ANSI lumens of brightness and it is little more affordable. In November it is coming to China for 10,999 Chinese Yuan. It is cheaper in Price than GD711 and it is heavier and has more limited life span at about 5000 hours in standard mode and up to 12000 hours in Extreme Eco mode. it does have many of the features that are same to GD711, with variable refresh rate, HDR10 and support for up to 240 Hz refresh rate.
