Acer has been really hitting its groove in the UltraWide display market, and now we have the introduction of their latest and greatest 21:9 display - the Acer XR382CQK.

Acer's new XR382CQK is a 38-inch UltraWide monitor with a native resolution of 3840x1600 (compared to the 3440x1440 on 34-inch UltraWide displays) - with AMD's FreeSync technology offering up to 75Hz. We also have DTS Sound with 2 x 7W speakersr, and Acer's impressive ZeroFrame design. Here's the full run down of what to expect:

  • AMD FreeSync™ renders smooth, stutter-free gameplay
  • Ergonomic stand promotes optimum comfort with adjustable tilt, swivel and height
  • ZeroFrame design affords maximum viewing area and near seamless multi-monitor setups
  • Dynamic sound effects thanks to DTS® Sound and two 7W speakers
  • Excellent multitasking capabilities via picture-by-picture, picture-in-picture and daisy chaining

Display connectivity includes 1 x DP, 1 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C, and 4 x USB 3.0 ports.

I think the additional pixels on the XR382CQK will be interesting to see, with 3840x1600 being a nice addition to the 3440x1440 native res I've come to know and love over the years. The 75Hz refresh rate is a little disappointing, as we're in a world of 3440x1440 monitors with a native 100Hz refresh rate. But still, 75Hz with FreeSync will be great for UltraWide gamers who aren't playing twitchy first-person shooters.

Acer's new XR382CQK is available at US retailers for $1299 right now.
