In addition to plenty of new notebooks and the Predator 21 X behemoth, Acer also announced three new gaming monitors at IFA 2016 show in Berlin, all with Tobii eye-tracking technology and Nvidia G-Sync support.

A research note from IDC said that PC shipments in the EMEA region accounted for 16.1 million units in the second quarter of this year.
