Acer Predator X34P: 100Hz Curved UltraWide IPS WQHD G-SYNC Gaming Monitor

best gaming monitor

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.

    Near perfect. 120hz is the goal! Wonder if the price will start to go down.

  • boe_d

    XB321HK to a higher refresh rate as well. A 34″ version would be nice.

  • Thomas

    At 144 it’s a no brainer. Now it’s just be able to not sucomb for it

  • Monitorm

    Hz has a diminishing return somewhere between 100-120 with most of the benefit of a higher refresh rate monitor between 60-100. Anything over 120 is a marketing gimmick, so not really a no brainier. Lastly 100hz with G-sync is better than 120 without so I agree with Tyrann, near perfect.

  • Thomas

    Depends on the person. Before I got a real keyboard I had the Logitech G19 and with Fraps I could see live fps on the screen of the keyboard with a grafic ligne. When I went from 120 to 115 I could see it evely. Every time I looked down to the keyboard is was right. I guess I’m doomed to have too sensible sight. 144 is what I need. I mean it’s not game breaking it’s just annoying to me. Deconcentrates me.

    Edit: I never tested g-sync so I can’t know how it feels. Heared it was eye porn haha

  • xostrowx1991

    Well luckily this monitor doesn’t JUST come at 100hz out of the box but can STILL be overclocked as well! Acer said that 120hz or so at least should be obtainable with overclocking; but if you consider that the 60hz original X34 OC’d to 100hz, i’m betting more like 135-140hz will be possible.

  • Thomas

    That’s awesome news!

  • FU googlplus

    Thats until you test and long term test 144+ hz. Higher hz does make all input and motion on the monitor more smooth. Can easily see and feel the difference between 120 and 144hz on my xl2411z. FPS and hz is not in sync during normal use and here the higher hz is welcome as there wil image tearing visible even at 100/144 hz no matter the fps. Sure g-sync is great, but its not perfect either, it does include some added input lag.

  • Pistol Pete

    Not possible to OCable to 135-140hz, LOL. There is not enough bandwidth in Displayport 1.2.

  • Patrick Dorsman

    A guy for ACER said this one “should be able to be overclocked” so you might actually be able to get it to 120 hz. Im crossing my fingers because I want to buy this new model

  • Tyrann

    Nice, hope to see some reviews up soon when these are on the shelves.

  • Salad Fingers

    Will this have ULMB?

  • Salad Fingers

    G-Sync has nothing on a constant, high refresh rate. All G-Sync does is eliminate tearing on those fps dips you might get. Higher refresh rates with strobbing techniques look immensely smoother and more “alive”. 120+strobbing > 100+G-Sync and if you think otherwise, you haven’t experienced it. 144 is even smoother. The only catch is that you have to make sure your fps doesn’t dip bellow 100. One would think buying such expensive monitors one would have the appropriate hardware to let it run above 60fps…

  • Salad Fingers

    Even 120hz at 1440p isn’t possible with DP1.2. But, I’m pretty sure releasing a new, top end monitor in late 2016, when the new GPUs support DP1.3, it will be DP1.3 as well.

  • vor24

    Don’t the pascal cards already support new DP? like 1.3?

  • jt3z

    Heard someone say its being released in Dec.

  • Salad Fingers

    Yes, I wasn’t very clear with what I said. I meant, that since the new generation of cards (pascal) does support DP 1.3, a top end monitor that would be released in late 2016 should also very likely support it.

  • Hank

    As far as I can tell, the x34 had a curvature of 3800r. But this and every other other x34p articles say “increased to 1900R from 2200R”. Where is everyone is getting that 2200 number?

  • Hank

    If you’re not using g-sync you noticed it going from 120 to 115 because you had screen tearing, not because you could see the difference between 115 and 120. Your monitor wasn’t displaying 115 fps.

  • jt3z

    Not sure did the X34a go to 2200R?

  • Slobodan

    The release date has been pushed to 2017

    …but will require DP 1.3 or better due to bandwidth limitations of DP 1.2…

  • Iluv2raceit

    Source?

  • Iluv2raceit

    All new Pascal GPUs support DP 1.4 😉

  • Martin van Capelleveen

    I called acer Today and they told me that the x34p won’t get into production. At least not within any planned range.

  • Jeremiah O’Callahan

    any updates on this monitor release?

  • Ninjawithagun

    Strobing has a side affect that affects a small percentage of people most don’t bring up in conversation – epilepsy. There is always a pro and con approach to any type of technology implementation. Regardless, I agree with you in that these high end monitors should have all of the features gamers want 😉 For example, why can’t we use BOTH G-Sync and strobing at the same time? This hasn’t changed since the initial introduction of G-Sync. It’s one or the other 🙁

  • Ninjawithagun

    Did you ask them why the fuck did they show it off at CES if they don’t plan to make the damn thing? Absolute dumbass CEO that’s running Acer.

  • Ninjawithagun

    120Hz 4K monitors were announced at CES 2017. Both Acer and Asus will be initially releasing a 27 inch 4K 120Hz G-Sync HDR monitors using DisplayPort 1.4. Other variants will follow later. IMHO, 27 inch is just too small for a 4K monitor. I own an Acer XB321HK and it is the absolutely perfect size for a 16:9 4K monitor 😀

    Here’s the link – make sure to scroll down and you’ll see the monitors:

    Wall of text coming 😛

    Yes, that is a problem for some people, but hey – if you got a condition with light you’re probably already aware and know how to protect yourself. Thankfully strobbing can be turned off.

    I wouldn’t mind a monster monitor that has all technologies, but some of them won’t ever be used at the same time so it might be pointless. To use your example, G-Sync can not be enabled at the same time with strobbing. It’s more of a technology limitation than anything, but it’s also a little pointless in real life – think about it. Having a high refresh rate (above 100) and being able to maintain it means G-Sync would almost never kick in anyways. Now, if the fps drops more often than not, G-Sync would work beautifully, but then you’re not really taking advantage of the high refresh rates of the monitor are you?

    Surely G-Sync/Freesync will become better. I dream of the day where anything above 120 will be standard and those vsync technologies will be more tuned into eliminating tearing at the 120-165 range. But at those numbers tearing gets less and less noticeable, especially if there is no frame skipping.

    When is this monitor suppose to be out, I just want to know if the release date is close or not so i can decided to wait or just buy the asus rog.

  • wargamer1969

    4k 144 hertz over 32 inches or nothing.

  • Munchy

    I basicly reied 80 hz and then 100 and then 144, I noticed the difference all the way to 100hz only, I aM GUESSING IF YOU SAW 120HZ NOT MORE, I SAW 100 NO MORE THEN SURELY THERES PLENTY OF OTHER PEOPLE THAT MIGHT SEE FUTHER LIKE 144. ISNT IT SUBJECTIVE?

  • Munchy

    PERSONALLY EVEN WITH A 1080 I DONT SEE GAMES RUNING ON A X34 3440 resolution on ultra, not at least for a few more years yet, I’m happy to move from 60 to 100 and gsync. Just wish the x34p had a lesser curve like its earlier model.

  • Munchy

    still not released it and its august 2017

  • Saki

    This monitor still not released? September 14th 2017?
