Linus was able to overclock his review monitor to 85 Hz I believe, other than that I have not followed much the freesync version. I don't think it will be able to hit 100 Hz though, most likely they are using the better panels for the g-sync version. The monitor is sold as being able to hit only 75 Hz after all.

Let your monitor sleep overnight. When you turn your PC on if it fully lights up on boot before the windows splash screen, then you don't have it. If half the screen is black until windows loads you have wfs issue.


Yeah, I don't really know if monitor or computer going to sleep, but after a while, when one of either is waking up 1/2 or a third of the right of the display is black or very very dark. I am just restarting the monitor, and AT LEAST it's a very quick one! Not like some other monitors or TV's I met that takes twice the time.



Do you guys, as I do have some small defects/issues? What you gonna do about it? Acutally, since it's passed 3 months already now since I first got it, but started to use it now, I don't care. It's sich a pity problem - and overall it's working good.


Found a good Video 21:9 extension for chrome, which you probably already have, but anyway, here you go smile.gif

Acer will fix that for you. It is a hardware/firmware fix. Well documented.

As far as I'm aware, it has nothing to do with the panels rather than G-Sync itself which is able to push it that high. So take G-Sync out of the equation on a panel that was hitting 100Hz, and you wouldn't no longer be able to achieve that with the same panel minus G-Sync.

Well yes, but there are still panels that are better than others. Just take as an example all the ones that reach only 95 Hz and not 100 Hz. Those are problems with the panel itself. Or just look at all the korean monitors using "B grade" panels that the other manufactures have rejected (not sure how they call them exactly).

Though it's worth noting, when an AMD card is hooked up to the X34, the panel is still able to run @ 100 Hz. TFTcentral review confirms this.

But since G-Sync has a hardware component it may still be doing something when an AMD card is connected, I guess.

Yeah, the g-sync module is basically the monitor scaler. Thus it is always active.

 

Not to be confused with "g-sync mode" which gets enabled only for nvidia cards :p

Actually, my guess is that for the "Predator X34" G-sync displays the OEM panels have been specially tested to achieve 100Hz. In other words, it's not the G-sync module that provides the extra speed, it's the fact that Acer is buying premium panels for that particular monitor. That is part of the extra cost vs the Freesync model. The Freesync model gets panels that don't quite make it to 100Hz.

I say this because Freesync supports over 200Hz officially, and even Acer's XZ350CU supports Freesync up to 144Hz.

For us AMD owners, it would be nice to pay a premium for extra Hz, but I realize that's not profitable for Acer at this time. At least Freesync gets 75hz vs 60Hz, and a decent range down to 30Hz. AMD has implemented low framerate compensation in their latest drivers so even below 30Hz there should be no additional stutter.

Mine has some minor problems, but I just don't care anymore, I just want a nice monitor and cannot even bear to go back to my 20" monitor while waiting for a replacement, that will be more likely to be worse than better....

Overall this is not perfect, but its the best out of 3 I tried, so the probability of a replacement being better is less likely than the replacement being the same or worse.

Overall this monitor is great, obviously I would prefer it was OLED and 200hz, or had absolutely zero issues and was perfect, but I don't think that even exists and out of what is available this is easily the best monitor.

I want to buy this monitor (X34 Gsync) but Amazon.com says 1-2 months, Newegg says out-of-stock and B&HPhoto says coming soon. I bought from Amazon.com today even though it says 1-2 months because I know Amazon in these cases says that long but ships way sooner and I'm on the notify-me list in Newegg and B&HPhoto. All last week the X34 in said stores has been in OUT OF STOCK condition. As I know this is common with this monitor I would like to ask you that already have it, when you were in the same situation (waiting for restock) how long does your waiting took? Thanks!
