Acer Predator X34 Curved G-SYNC Monitor Review

If you’re a PC gamer or into enthusiast computing, how would you describe your ideal monitor? For many, it might go something like a 32 – 34-inch IPS panel with a high refresh rate of 100Hz plus, 4K resolution, along with NVIDIA G-SYNC or AMD FreeSync technology. And with displays this big, adding a slight curve might be high on your wish list as well. The good news is, with the recent advancements in display technologies, that “holy grail” set of specifications is beginning to take shape, as display manufacturers like Acer, ASUS, Samsung, Dell and others begin to build all this great new tech into bigger and better high-end displays.


In fact, the new Acer Predator X34 series captures three out of four of those “ideal” spec check box items, maybe hitting all of them, depending on your perspective. Acer offers two variants of curved 34-inch IPS panels with adaptive refresh technology, a FreeSync version known as the XR341CK and a G-SYNC-enabled version called the Predator X34 that we’ll be digging into here. This panel also has a 100Hz overclock setting, a fast 4ms pixel response time and 100% sRGB color gamut capability for gaming geek nirvana as well as productivity and content creation fidelity. The native resolution for the Predator X34 is 3440X1440 in a 21:9 aspect ratio.
