Acer XR341CKA, The First Curved Gaming Monitor with G-Sync Technology
The one thing that every gamer would want is an engrossing experience, and Nvdia’s groundbreaking G-SYNC technology is the one that promises to deliver such experience by eliminating screen tearing and stutter.
While there are a ton of G-Sync enabled gaming monitors out there, the Acer XR341CKA is the first curved display that comes equipped with this ingenious tech.
G-SYNC synchronizes the monitor refresh rate to the output from Nvdia GeForce GPUs, often referred to as variable refresh rate. As a result, images are displayed when they are ready, thus improving input lag.
The Acer X34 boasts a refresh rate of 75Hz, but with G-Sync enabled, the display refresh rate can be varied from 23Hz to a whopping 100Hz.
As for the specs, the monitor features a 34-inch IPS display with an ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio. It packs a pair of 7W speakers for sound, a built-in USB 3.0 hub, DisplayPort as well as HDMI inputs.
Further, it has a 3,440-by-1,440-pixel resolution, and a response time of 4ms. Along with offering a more immersive experience, Acer claims the curved display will also reduce eyestrain. The curve actually “puts every corner of the screen at the same distance from the customer’s eyes,” offering a wider field of view.
The Acer XR341CKA is scheduled to be released in September. About pricing, the monitor might seem too pricey for all as it is expected to cost around $1249.
