Little reminder for everyone already with the monitor: there is an owner's thread available now => http://www.overclock.net/t/1578621/official-acer-predator-x34-owner-club-edition/0_20

 

You might want to post there now instead ;)

Sorry the first shot isn't as in focus as the 2nd, but it gets the point across. So far I've only noticed this in DayZ and Fishing Planet. Going to play around to see if it is a refresh rate issue or maybe G-Sync related. But why would I see it in those games but not others?

Edit: Looks like this isn't new, https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/3q49xb/my_experience_with_the_x34/ & http://community.acer.com/t5/Predator-Discussions/Predator-X34-OC-amp-GSYNC-Scanline-problem/td-p/393009 - will have to keep reading up on it...

Edit 2: LOL right in this thread already, of course. http://www.overclock.net/t/1537403/tftcentral-acer-predator-xr341ck-34-curved-gaming-screen-with-g-sync/4750#post_24551122


Of all the issues reported so far, this one worries me the most. Only three people have reported it so far (Smoobandit, yourself and SmokeyBear).


It's supposed to be due to Pixel Overdrive; anything but off seems to produce it. The reddit thread report and the acer thread report are a repeat of Smoobandit's images. I hope you guys figure out how to solve this and if solving this means an RMA so be it. I wonder if others don't care, don't notice or just don't have the issue.

While Nvidia has said that they do dynamically vary the pixel response time when G-sync is active, the fact that it is the monitor's pixel overdrive function that causes it could mean that this issue cannot be fixed via G-sync drivers.

EDIT: It's reported not due to OD. but due to OC of the monitor. I misunderstood the earlier reports.

Just ordered mine from ncix us. Their site says "pre order" but I called last night and they said some just came in yesterday morning so they should be able to ship mine right out. With shipping it's a couple bucks more than newegg, but it doesn't appear newegg is going to have another back order until mid November.

It does take up a lot of space but I do like the stand. Its much better than the older 3340x1440p or acerXB series stands. They are all starting to look alittle funky but it hasn't moved around unless I wanted it to since Ive had it on launch day.

Is it just DayZ? DayZ is a horrible game to compare anything to and it runs pretty bad on any system. Its pretty much CPU dominant and even with 3 way SLI you wont get a steady 60 fps unless you have a 5960x possibly.
I haven't had anything like that visible on the games I play. I do have dayZ but don't play it because it runs so horrible.

Same here, thanks for posting about your call to them...good to know it could be shipping soon. I ordered mine last night from them. Cheaper for me from them than Newegg.

I know Asus hasn't released "official" final version pics of their 21:9 monitor but in looking at the back of the pics of the prototype I don't see how it can have vesa mount holes....but guess we'll see when that one is finalized. I can't imagine that it wouldn't have that option.

LOL, yeah, DayZ. As a huge fan and hardware nerd I'm well aware of the degree to which DayZ sucks. However this issue has nothing to do with the performance of games so there's no reason not to use shots from it in my explanation of the problem. The main reason I bought my X34 was for DayZ, trying to make the most of the frames I have.

I've got a pretty busy weekend going on but I will collect more examples of the issue from other games and confirm that what smoobandit wants me to check as well. I'm already pretty confident his assumptions are correct. I also think more people probably have this problem than realize it yet.

yeah i was wondering about the vesa mount holes as well.. can't imagine such an expensive monitor not having them though.
