The highly sought after Acer Predator X34 is getting a newer version – the Acer Predator X34P. This new model features some improvements as well as a steeper curve.
First off, let’s start out with the basics. The Acer Predator X34P will feature a WQHD resolution (3440 x 1440) with an UltraWide (21:9) aspect ratio. Furthermore, a 100Hz native refresh rate is supported. That’s right, unlike the X34, this new display will not require any manual overclocking done by the user. It will come off at 100Hz right from the start, which is pretty cool. Not only that, but the curvature has been increased to 1900R from 2200R. The smaller the number, the steeper the curve, and this amount of curvature will surely be adding to the immersion while gaming. There’s also good news for NVIDIA users,
Looking at the back side of the monitor, you can see some differences between this and the X34 as well. There’s no longer a glossy plastic design, but instead an aluminium finished one. Furthermore, the X34P has a multi-directional joystick at the back, which makes the navigation through the OSD much faster and it’s generally just an intuitive thing.
There’s also good news for NVIDIA users, since the Predator X34P supports NVIDIA G-SYNC technology to help prevent tearing artifacts. Panel type is specified as IPS, just like the X34.
No word on pricing just yet, but we expect it to be similar to that of the X34, which is currently around $1200. We also expect this gaming monitor to be released sometime in Q4 2016. We’ll update this article once we get hold of more information.
