ACER Reveal Worlds First Curved Monitor with G-SYNC
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
There are several big innovations happening in the world of digital displays right now, two of the biggest are curved displays and G-SYNC, so why not go for double the fun and create a monitor that sports both of these technologies! Acer has just announced its new 34″ curved 21:9 ultra-wide XR341CKA monitor, making it the first monitor in the world to support both a curved display and the impressive G-SYNC technology.
This is great news for gamers as the 21:9 ultra-wide form factor is excellent for providing extra immersion while gaming, G-Sync will provide you with tear-free performance should your frame-rate take a dive and 34-inch of screen real estate will be fantastic for productivity.
The panel supports a 3440×1440 resolution, an IPS panel, a 178-degree viewing angle, 100% of the sRGB colour gamut; so it certainly ticks all the right boxes for a great monitor.
“Acer continues to showcase its commitment to PC gaming with the introduction of their new NVIDIA G-SYNC-enabled XR341CKA gaming monitor,” said Jeff Fisher, senior vice-president of the GeForce business unit at NVIDIA. “The preferred choice of PC gamers everywhere is a GeForce GTX GPU, which when paired with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology is the only platform to deliver an ultra-smooth gaming experience across the entire spectrum of PC games.”
The monitor will also support a 6-axis colour adjustment, on-screen refresh rate readout, an adjustable stand, DisplayPort and HDMI input, built-in USB 3.0 hub and more. The downside? The monitor will take a chunk of $1299/1399 EUR out of your wallet. The new display is expected to launch in North America in September and Europe in August.
