We've heard rumblings about Acer's curved, 34" G-Sync display since January, and now it's official. The XR341CK sports a 21:9 IPS panel with a 3440x1440 resolution, and it'll be available in September for $1,299.
Although the XR341CK supports variable refresh rates, it tops out at 75Hz, probably due to the IPS panel. The upside is that the display is rated to reproduce 100% of the sRGB gamut, which could make it good for both gaming and graphics editing. The G-Sync module is also said to enable "6-axis color adjustment."
In the "hope there's an off switch" department, Acer says there's a red ambient light on the bottom edge of the display that pulses with variations in the G-Sync refresh rate.
As might be expected of a premium monitor like this one, Acer sweetens the deal with integrated 7-watt stereo speakers and an aluminum base with height and tilt adjustment. The display supports both HDMI and DisplayPort input, and the backlight uses flicker-free tech for reduced eye strain. There's also a USB 3.0 hub onboard, and gamers can choose between three reticle overlays.
