I'll set it up tonight and run some tests.

I am so excited and scared right now redface.gif

Please do the Pendulum Gesync Demo detailled above to see if you get horizontal lines.
You can also talked about it at hardware.fr forum since we're both french. wink.gif

One of us should really write to TFTcentral highlighting this problem. Whether they respond or not is a separate issue but we should take an initiative. They made a reference to the coil whine issue in their review which makes me believe they might listen.

PCPer is one of the best in that way because they took the time to investigate the pixel inversion issue with the PG278Q long after its release. I'd have written them myself with the pics provided by you and the three others on this thread but they have not reviewed the X34, only the freesync version.

Well, atleast it has been reported on the ACER forums but I think their To-Do list is massive at the moment.

I'm hoping to receive my monitor on Friday or Saturday and I'll share pictures with G-sync On. If I do not have the problem and can prove it with pictures, perhaps you guys can get your monitors replaced by ACER. And if I do, well, it still doesn't mean all units have the problem; just that I'm unlucky too.

I'm surprised no one who says they do not have the issue has helped by posting some pictures. It would help to know if it is really present on all units or at least to know if the degree to which it manifests is different on each unit.

I sent a PM to Scott at The Tech Report. I host the annual BBQ for TR and actually offered to let him borrow my X34 before I opened it so he could review it but it didn't work out. He's one of those nitty-gritty guys like Ryan at PCPer so I'm hoping he'll poke Nvidia about the issue but I haven't heard back from him yet. I also mentioned he should check for the issue on the PG279Q that he's reviewing. We'll see.

DrFish, looks like you are well connected!
Scott was the first to talk about quantifying stuttering that later went critical when AMD's frame pacing issues were unearthed. It would be sweet if Scott could weigh in on this problem with the X34. I am more curious about the cause of this issue than anything. If possible, keep us updated if it develops further.

We'll see, he's super busy all the time and this could just be a minor issue experienced only by a sad minority (obviously I hope that is the case). However it does seem to me that maybe this is a tip of the iceberg type thing and in that case "enabling G-Sync affects image quality" seems right up his alley. wink.gif

I did the test and did notice horizontal lines.

But i really had to look very closely to recognise it.

If i didnt know what i was looking for i probably would not have noticed it.

Thank you for checking! This furthers my suspicion that it is a "problem" on all or most monitors to varying degrees.

So far the game it showed up the worst in for me was Fishing Planet (don't judge! tongue.gif) when the game was rendering an early morning scene with a lot of mist/fog along with the fine line detail of lots of grass on the shore and the rippling water surface - the lines just really messed with the look really badly. In games like TF2, Rocket League, and Planetbase it really isn't visible at all unless you're looking super, super closely for it.

I tried this and it won't run in my Win 10 environment frown.gif

Is Game mode required to run gsync? What exactly is Game mode? It dimmed my screen alot.

No game mode is NOT required for g-sync to work. G-sync works fine without it being on.

I read the manual and forgot exactly what game mode did as well. Like you said, all I noticed was that it made the screen much dimmer on my monitor too.

Heres a note of interest:

When you go into your nvidia control panel and into the g-sync settings page, there are 2 choices:
Enable g-sync in full screen only
Enable g-sync in full screen and windowed mode only.

I chose the 1st option, enable in full screen only, because I thought "I NEVER game in anything except full screen so why do I want to complicate things by allowing it to work in windowed mode as well?"

Turns out, this actually messed up 2 of my game titles:

Far Cry 4
Arma 3

I am using the latest nvidia drivers and when I try to load Far Cry 4 or Arma 3 with g-sync in full screen only mode, they both crash to a BSOD that says something like "stack_driver_overrun" 100% of the time. If I change that g-sync option to the 2nd choice, work in windowed and full screen, then both titles load fine. I am not sure why this is because in both titles, I obviously run them in full screen mode anyway. Might have something to do with that very beginning of loading where its in "windowed" mode for a few seconds as loading screens are popping up etc. No idea really but its something you might check if certain titles crash.
