The highly anticipated Acer Predator X34, which was previously named the Acer XR341CKA, is now available for pre-order at various retailers. There has been much hype about this monitor in 2015 and the fact that it’s a 75Hz G-SYNC IPS 1440p UltraWide gaming monitor, where the G-SYNC feature is overclocked to allow you to enjoy up to 100Hz, makes this the ultimate gaming monitor in 2015. The monitor is also going by the name Acer Predator XR34 and you can already pre-order it at Newegg or see if it’s available on Amazon by clicking on the links below:

We would like to describe some more details about this 34-inch monitor, and we’d like to start out with the resolution. At 3440×1440 resolution, this monitor adopts the UltraWide (21:9) aspect ratio, which adds a lot of screen estate to the width, which results in a more immersive gaming experience. Furthermore, the screen boasts an IPS panel, which is much better than TN panels and will give you superior colors and viewing angles. As far as refresh rate goes, this monitor runs at a maximum static refresh rate of 75Hz. The twist, however, is that this monitor is a G-SYNC monitor, which will eliminate screen tearing without the cost of any performance whatsoever, and with this feature enabled, the monitor can reach a staggering 100Hz on the maximum supported resolution! The display also has in-built stereo speakers with DTS.
The downside? Price. For a price of $1299.99 or 950£, you can purchase this monitor. That’s the equivalent of the rest of the PC for many people, which is why this monitor will probably only be bought by the most dedicated players, who want the best money can buy right now. The Acer Predator X34 can at the moment be pre-ordered at Newegg in the United States and it is likely that Amazon will soon follow. The link will auto-update in such case, so it will lead to the correct product once it is put on sale. Release date of the Predator X34 is October 13, 2015 on Newegg.
We are very excited about this monitor and have been waiting for it for months. We will try to see if we can get hold of a review copy, so we can see if it lives up to our expectations.
