Acer already sells a 34" curved FreeSync monitor, the XR341CK, but a G-Sync equivalent has been absent until today. The Predator X34 combines a curved 21:9 IPS display with Nvidia's take on variable-refresh-rate technology.
Much like the XR341CK, the Predator X34 is built around a 3440x1440 IPS panel that covers 100% of the sRGB gamut. The panel's 75Hz refresh rate can purportedly be turned up to 100Hz with built-in overclocking settings. Acer claims the Predator's thin ZeroFrame bezel is especially good for multi-monitor gaming. The X34 connects to PCs with HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2a ports.
The Predator X34 isn't just about its wide IPS display, either. The monitor includes an integrated four-port USB 3.0 hub, a headphone jack, and a pair of 7-watt DTS-certified speakers. A customizable RGB LED array can light up the desk or table beneath with an ambient glow, too. Newegg already has the Predator X34 listed for Acer's $1,299 suggested price, though it's currently out of stock.
