Yep, I've been quite busy lately and the few times I checked around the shops I usually use always had it listed as a pre-order. I even forgot to subscribe to the other thread talking about it, I guess I have some catch up to do :p

My PG348Q is affected as well as 5 previous X34, so I'm a bit skeptical.

Thanks wink.gif

edit : damnit, wrong thread. biggrin.gif

Yes also please post a picture of your monitor on a black screen with "NO backlight bleed" I don't believe it.

So who has scan lines since the monitor release, have they got any worse since the release
post #6074 of 6126
So I currently have a great Dell U3415W that I bought used off Amazon for $663.91 and was wondering from all owner of this monitor, do you think its worth spending an extra $600+ to get this and sell my Dell 34? I'll be running on an i7 2600k @ 4.6Ghz EVGA 980Ti FTW SLI. I like this monitor for its higher refresh rate and G-Sync. Will running at a higher refresh rate degrade the monitor after a period of time?

Yes, as much as I liked my LG 34" ultrawide I sold it a week after getting the X34, high refresh rate and G-Sync makes for a significantly better gaming experience.

As for OC degradation, to be honest it's impossible to say. I haven't noticed any ill effects from running it @ 100 Hz for 10-12 hours a day the past two months, but who knows what will happen further down the line. Based on other components I've overclocked, I'm not too worried.

Thanks, shame Amazon doesn't have stock or I would pull the trigger.

Anyone running 3x 980 ti SLI? If so, how's the performance and is it worth it over a 2x SLI?

It's not worth it at all. I had 3 and sold off a 980Ti after a month. Spend the money on Pascal if anything.

Does anybody know if it is possible to overclock an XR341CK past 75hz?

Also, I did some quick google searching, and will continue to do so, but just thought I'd ask here too. Is it possible to use my NVidia cards and utilize freesync? Are there any confirmed "hacks" for it?

No, you get frame skipping if you try to do that (refer to my review). Nvidia cards do not support Adaptive-Sync, which is what is used on the monitor side to allow 'FreeSync' to be used. FreeSync is purely an AMD technology.

Not worth, 2 cards in SLI is the sweet spot. Anything more and you just spend a lot of money without gaining much more.

Yes, some of those monitors overclock past 75 Hz. Linus overclocked his sample up to 85 Hz for example.

 

Other than that DO NOT use the FreeSync version with a Nvidia card, the TFTCentral review of the monitor too revealed that Nvidia cards have a frame skipping problem with it. And Acer never got back to them, so we can assume they haven't fixed the issue yet. Also Adaptive-Sync is not supported by Nvidia (as PCM2 already mentioned) so it would be a waste of money together with the frame skip issue.
