Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved G-sync and FreeSync Monitors

 

Acer's Predator XR341CK 34" 3440x1440 Curved IPS display will be available in G-sync and FreeSync flavors, costing around £999 and £899 respectively according to OverclockersUK. In the US these displays will cost $1299 and $1099 for the G-Sync and FreeSync compatible versions of the display respectively. 

The two versions of this monitor should be available in late July or early August this year and should be available for Pre-order soon. According to Overclockers UK there should be 500 of these displays getting delivered to the UK, should be considered in short supply. 

Here is what Acer's American Product Manager, Charlotte Chen had to say about these displays. 

 

“This killer new monitor makes game play incredibly realistic,”

“The ultra-wide curved design, stunning image quality and dynamic audio take the thrill of gaming to a new level.”

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.

Is there any technical reason why a manufacturer couldn't put both G-Sync and FreeSync into a single monitor. I realise you would need to double up on some components as G-sync only supports a single input. I just find it ridiculous that there is now another component which will tie you to the red or green side, and with monitors it could be for a very long time as not many people change the screen as often as their graphics cards.Quote

If they made a smaller screen size they could probably get the refresh rate up a tiny bit as 75hz is little low. I run my 1080p monitor at 75hz(OC'd) and tbh it's not that noticeable of a difference.

There is a technical reason. One requires a custom scalar.. that's it. It's not designed to run FreeSync. And no you won't be tied down with AMD, at least in the future. Just Nvidia. Nvidia can support Freesync but they won't. FreeSync is open standard and anybody can use it. Heck LG could put Adaptive Sync(Freesync) into an 80" TV if they wanted too. Freesync has the best chance of lasting longer.Quote

Tempted to get the Freesync version even though I have dual Nvidia GPU's. Monitors do last longer than my average graphics card and $200 US (about $260 Australian) price difference buys a lot of other fun parts. I wonder if you can just set it to run at 75hz and leave it at that?Quote

What's the purpose of getting it thenQuote
