The Acer XR341CK, or the Acer Predator XR341CK as it is often referred to, is now available for purchase in various retailers. The retail price of this monitor is $1099, which is lower than expected. You can buy the monitor by clicking on the link below.
The monitor itself is a 34-inch screen and features an IPS panel that allows for superior color reproduction and viewing angles. In return, they offer slower response times than TN panels, but it is very minor and for a majority of gamers, this won’t be an issue at all. Furthermore, the monitor boasts an incredible 3440 x 1440 resolution, because of the 21:9 aspect ratio. Monitors with this aspect ratio, also called UltraWide monitors, are gaining more and more popularity among gamers. It allows for a greater field of view in practically every game, which gives you a closer and better gameplay than if you had an 16:9 monitor. One other noteworthy thing about this monitor is the 75Hz refresh rate. This is not 144Hz like we would have hoped for, but this is simply not possible due to the fact that such a panel has not been invented yet.
And probably the most important thing of all: this monitor is fully FreeSync supported, meaning that if you have a compatible GPU, you can enable the technology from AMD that synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the FPS that your graphics card is outputting, which effectively eliminates screen tearing and stuttering. It also eliminates the added input lag you would get if you just enabled V-Sync. You need to use DisplayPort if you wish to use FreeSync.
The FreeSync range of this monitor is 30-75Hz, meaning that it is actually possible to go higher than the 75Hz refresh rate, as it is the case with some other monitors that we have looked at previously.
Connectivity options include HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort. You will also find 4x USB 3.0 ports on the monitor and integrated 7-Watt speakers, which can be useful in many scenarios.
The release date of the G-SYNC version, the Acer XR341CKA is still unknown, but according to some reputable sources we have, it will also soon be on sale.
