[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 483

post #4821 of 6126
So in my service menu it says my "die temp" is 79c.

My monitor also seems to be rather warm... Anyone else?

Update after owning this for a few days now. I freaking love this monitor, even with the minor issues. My only complaint is that more games don't support it out of the box. I was really getting into Diablo 3 this season, but without 3440x1440/21:9 and gsync together it's a bit hard on the eyes. Otherwise I love everything about it, even the tacky Predator logo has grown on me. I could not be happier... until dp1.3 lands of course. biggrin.gif

Hell, I even like the OSD now as it has a lot to play with, and a lot of "secret" functions.

To everyone with KEPLER Nvidia GPUs

here are the results of all my tests

1) configuration
2x GTX 670 SLI + Gsync on
X34 OCed to 95 hz (maximum for Kepler GPUs)



2) game testing / drivers
read the following line as
[Nvidia Driver] - [Max Desktop refresh] - Max FPS [Tomb Raider Underworld] - [DragonAge Origins] - [Starcraft 2 HotS] - [Witcher 3]

337.50 - 60 hz - 60 - 60 - 60 - 24
353.06 - 95 hz - 85 - 63 - 95 - 33
353.62 - 95 hz - 95 - 63 - 95 - 45 --> Best drivers
355.98 - 95 hz - 8 - 8 - 8 - 8 (A)
358.59* -95 hz - 8 - 8 - 8 - 8 (A)

* - HotFix version
(A)
disabling SLI restore FPS to normal for a single card
disabling GSync restore FPS to normal SLI value but refresh is locked

I hope my testing is useful for other in the same situation

Regards

You should post this in the owner's thread. It's really useful! Good testing :thumb:

Clearly the panel in the PG279Q/XB270HU suffers horribly, the X34 less so (based on pictures I've seen) which uses a different panel made by a different manufacturer. The characteristics of each panel will always vary somewhat.

The Asus PG348Q as you say will use an identical panel to the X34, so as to the earlier poster who brought it up, there is no hope in hoping this will be 'better'... you may prefer the look of it, and it may have certain OSD features and other minor aspects that would make you choose it over the X34, but don't think that the panel or it's tendency for glow and/or BLB will be any less, because they won't. Plus Asus QC really is no better than Acer.

I still stand by my statement, "Using an IPS panel you are guaranteed IPS glow but it will very on intensity from display to display." You most likely had an IPS panel that exhibited very little which is as I said very much possible. There are a few factors that are going to determine your view of IPS glow as well. My x34 set to 80 Brightness does have IPS glow but if I lower it to 35 it goes away and I see none at all. Would it be fair to say my panel has none, imo NO. I too have owned IPS panels throughout the years and all have had IPS glow to some degree. Some were very faint and some were obnoxious to the point where I had to RMA.

In case anyone is interested Acer did receive back a display that had a half lit screen when resuming a computer from sleep at 30 percent brightness. Acer sent off that monitor to Nvidia for further testing.

I'm following this thread closely as I'm hoping to buy one of these in Dec/Jan.
