[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 418

post #4171 of 6126
Just watched new Star Wars trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGbxmsDFVnE&feature=youtu.be

And then I was thinking, maybe I don't need to visit the cinema and pay 10 pound/14 euro for a ticket if I get this monitor in November rolleyes.gifjerry.gif

No issues with the default cable other than it's quite short. If your tower is next to the monitor, it'll be more than enough, but it won't reach MUCH longer than that. Same with the USB cable.

Try to look at it this way: early adopters finance the development cost of the monitor, so that normal consumers can buy it for little bit more than the cost of material and assembly later.

You're welcome biggrin.gif

Sorry for the delayed reply. The desk is ~54" wide and as a corner desk it is about 32" deep with another 12" for the keyboard/mouse area.

It's a Mayline, an older model of this one but I got it for $150 when the Steelcase pyramid had it's contents sold to a friend of a friend and I got to do a walk through and pick up some awesome stuff for dirt cheap (including a couple Steelcase Leap chairs for $250!).

This desk is absolutely perfect for the X34 I think. smile.gif

Its like comparing Major league baseball to T ball.

Good to hear; I'm exploring upgrading from my LG, which I absolutely LOVE.

I'm very unimpressed with 100Hz+G-sync compared to regular 60Hz. Maybe I've configured something wrong?

On NVidia control panel:
- Gsync always on, full screen + windows
- VSync always on on
- Render max 2 frames ahead always

The rest is application controlled.

I'll admit, it is hard for me to tell how much I like G-Sync vs. how much I like 100Hz. To me it is undeniably better but I'm not sure why having not seen either before. However, for low frame rate things like DayZ - subjectively things seem smoother, nothing dramatic, but somewhat, and that is all I was hoping for. Again, that could be mostly the higher refresh rate though (pro-tip, to get DayZ to run at 100Hz you have to manually edit your cfg file, it won't pick it up by default).

Edit: So doing some reading it looks like the 358.50 driver was a really bad time to experience G-Sync for the first time. There is a 358.59 hotfix out that is supposed to fix a lot of the issues of it not performing as it should, I'll check it out tonight.

Same here man, I hate that Canada is always so close, but late to the party.

On the bright side, Acer is expecting to have a "meaningful update" for the sleep issues come Wednesday, according to their community manager... Hopefully all the kinks are worked out by the time stock is more readily available.
