Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Display will have G-sync and FreeSync Models
Acer's Predator XR341CK 34" 3440x1440 Curved IPS display will be available in G-sync and FreeSync flavors, costing £999 and £899 respectively.
The two versions of this monitor should be available form August this year and should be available for Pre-order soon. The UK should be getting around 500 of these displays, so they will be sure to sell out soon after launch.
The two versions of this display will be the XR341CK, with AMD FreeSync support, and the XR341CKA, which has NVIDIA G-sync support. Both monitors will have the same silver and black design with a "zero-frame" ultra thin bezel.
These displays will be using a LG IPS panel which will support refresh rates of up to 75Hz. Other specs include a 4ms response time and a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 172/178 viewing angles and 72% sRGB Gamut coverage. At this time it is unknown at this time what this monitor's "FreeSync range" will be.
The XR341CK (FreeSync version) will have Displayport, Mini Dispayport and an HDMI 2.0 inputs alongside a 4 port USB 3.0 hub. The G-Sync version (the XR341CKA will include a Nvidia G-Sync v2 module and will include a single HDMI 1.4 connection alongside it's single displayport connection. The G-Sync version will also include the 4x USB 3.0 hub.
The Screen is VESA mount compliant and will include 2x 7w internal speakers, though with a monitor this high end we recommend that you use dedicated speakers.
This is the first time we have seen a monitor which has both FreeSync and G-Sync models, definitively telling us the FreeSync compliant monitors are in fact cheaper than G-Sync monitors when all other possible variables are the same.
