ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 224

post #2231 of 3075


That's the old Maxwell TITAN X, he's talking about the NEW Pascal TITAN X that just came out two days ago. I got my TITAN X Pascal yesterday and my Acer X34 arrives tomorrow, so i'll be able to do some teests then; i'm working on a general video review that should be done by this Saturday (day after tomorrow). Sadly i won't have my MSI Gaming X GTX1080 anymore once the Acer X34 comes, i wanted to test the 1080 at 3440x1440. I've already finished some moderate testing of the 1080 using Far Cry 4, Dark Souls 3, and The Witcher 3 at 1440p and 4K respectively; going to run those same tests in 3440x1440 Ultra-Wide on the X34 with the new TITAN when i get the monitor.

Yes that is the wrong Titan X you linked Buellersdayoff. I haven't seen any 21:9 benchmarks of new Titan X yet. I swear I HATE Nvidias naming scheme on the new Titan card! WTH were they thinking, so confusing! Would it be that hard to make the name XP, or anything, crap.

Anyways congrats on the Titan + X34 Darkideas, that is one killer combo!! I'm a little jelly. biggrin.gif

Just look at the 4k benchmarks using this scale: 4k 60fps = Ultra-Wide 100fps
50fps = 80-90fps
30-40fps = 60-75fps

Your best bet for a cheap one is Acer's refurb store for $999, they have a 30 day return policy and 90 day warranty on those I think.

Most people here are either satisifed or returned theirs for blb or other issues, not any monitor to upgrade toonce you go 3440/100Hz(people have already passed on 4K/60hz if they choosed this over that).

I'm looking to spend 700$, so it might be a while before I find a used one for that price.

Here(http://www.woot.com/offers/acer-predator-x34-34-curved-led-lcd-monitor-1) is what I recall a user here found one for either $699 or $799 I think. Might want to check when they have any in stock . But The chance you get one for that price without blb or dead pixel imo is quite slim. Maybe later in Q3 or Q4 when new SKU come out to drive price down you might have a remote shot.

So either wait and pray or give up G-sync(Free sync version is like $850 new, used for $700 might be found) or just get a 27"/144hz.

I am looking at the freesync version, however, have a 780ti, is that problem? I did see that people were overclocking it to around 85hz, which isn't far off from my 96hz I'm used to. Is that enough? Does going from 85 to 100 really make a big difference? I've heard that it doesn't and the main difference can be noticed going from 60 to 80-ish.

Ya that's a problem. A main benefit from these monitors is G-sync or Freesync. With having a Gsync enabled GPU and a Freesync monitor you would not be able to use either one. Either get an AMD GPU with Freesync or the other route with Nvidia.

Not your fault. I blame Nvidia for their naming the new card the same as the last gen. It's confusing for everyone.
