Acer releases 34-inch curved ultrawide QHD display with G-Sync

Acer has launched its new curved ultrawide monitor with NVIDIA's G-Sync adaptive refresh technology, offering a powerful display for enthusiast builds.


Acer's Predator X34 sports a 34-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 3440 x 1440. Touting tear-free gaming, the premium display has a super wide 21:9 aspect ratio that aims to replace multi-monitor setups, and its 60Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 100Hz to power serious builds.

The Predator X34 is the first curved display in the U.S. that supports NVIDIA's G-Sync variable display rate tech, Acer affirms, making for "buttery smooth" gaming with zero screen-tearing and minimal stuttering. Just in case you feel like spending almost $3,000 on displays, the Predator X34 supports Acer's ZeroFrame tech, which affords for seamless multi-monitor displays. "ZeroFrame design makes multi-monitor setups more immersive. Can you handle gaming at 10k? We tried it. It's awesome."

As far as quality the Predator X34 sports a 100% sRGB color gamut. The monitor's onboard GameView functionality lets users adjust and fine-tune color and dark levels, and even adds an on-screen aim point for hip-firing in FPS games.

Acer's curved Predator X34 features single HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2 ports as well as four USB 3.0 ports and two 7W onboard DTS Sound speakers. Ultrawide QHD screens aren't cheap to begin with, and the added G-Sync chip boosts the total cost of the display up to a staggering $1300.
