While the other two monitors are hardly slouches, the real difference with the X301CT is the Tobii Eye Tracking. But what is Tobii Eye Tracking?

The Acer Predator Z301CT Display is the pinnacle of gaming immersion, as evidenced by its win as the CES 2017 “Best of Innovations” award in the computer peripherals category. The monitor’s eye-tracking adds to a gamer’s arsenal, helping them intuitively aim and target faster than competitors who only have a keyboard and mouse. It taps into the gamer’s innate cognitive processes, providing insight into subsequent actions. Camera angles rotate as gamers focus towards the screen’s sides. Characters and game environments react as gamers look around. The ultra-wide Full HD and 1800R curved screen with a rapid 200Hz refresh rate deepens immersion.

The Predator X310CT will be available in February, with an MSRP of $899.
