ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 58

post #571 of 3066
Thread Starter 
I'm buying another one today just to see if acer really did address the WFS issue. Microcenter here is holding me the only one that came in the past week. I have to admit playing on my 4k monitor sucks after a month with the acer. Too bad acer cant make the tech come together. I'm honestly expecting the worst because my old monitor only had WFS issue.

I really would like to see these scanlines first hand. I don't doubt they don't exist but my old monitor didn't have them. I could only replicate a scanline'esque picture with a phone camera and it was pixilation, not scanlines.

I was really hoping the Asus would have been released by now but they are stalling probably because they are having similar issues.

They have a 30 day return policy.

I didn't return mine, but they seemed like they would accept a return without question. When I went to pick up my monitor another guy was returning a similar one, and the process went smoothly.

You got no data to back up your 'The vast majority of people buying this monitor are pretty much having the same experience' claims now. When you are happy with yours why are you telling people here what to do?

I bought this because of people like you and I can say that I am more than disappointed. Also you are going on my Ignore list.

These types of posts have infested these X34 threads since release. Anyone who makes a claim that "the vast majority of this that or the other" without any relevant proof is just spouting off nonsense and wasting space.

Its unfortunate that you are disappointed. I'm one of the lucky ones in that mine is in very good condition and I don't suffer any real major issues.. but it seems more that obvious that problems are affecting many people who purchased one of these monitors. Its ridiculous to think otherwise, the same as its ridiculous to assume anything without any hard numbers.

It's important, when posting, to be respectful of other people and their personal decision to keep the X34 or to return it.

We all spent a lot of money on this monitor, and we all work hard for our money. The people returning their monitors will obviously be a little out of sorts. Telling them they didn't have a problem with their monitor, when they clearly did, is not the way to proceed.

Likewise, a person who has paid this much money for the monitor, and has decided to keep it, doesn't want somebody constantly in their face, telling them their product sucks, and that it's going to fail soon, and that they're idiots for buying it.

If you can't be respectful of other people, and their own decisions, then maybe you shouldn't be posting here to begin with.

I was happy with mine as well until I started to notice that the skies in my games were looking cartoonist with yellow bands. I started digging and found out that the yellow bands are because of the blue gradient banding..

To those ones who have it a couple questions. Do you LOVE the ultrawide? How much more taxing on games is this monitor than a reg 1440p?
post #577 of 3066
Thread Starter 
Not much more taxing. It's virtually the same as far as I can tell comparing 100hz 3440x1440 to 144hz 2560x1440. Actually locking 144fps on 2560x1440 may be just slightly more taxing than 100hz 3440x1440.

It is more taxing.. it cant not be. Youre goin from 2560 to 3440 horizontally.. the difference in some games isnt enormous but its definitely noticeable.

1440p is 2,560×1,440×144
=530,841,600 pixels/s.

3,440×1,440×100
=495,360,000 pixels/s, so while it is very close and even a bit easier to drive the x34 if you only count pixels, the x34 is still going to be more demanding,especially cpu wise.

The x34 has a 34% wider fov, which if the game allows, requires much work to be done by the cpu with shadows and other things, even if gpu requirements are similar.
You are rendering the same scene but 34% wider, so more models shadows etc etc require cpu that don't even exist in the standard 1440p resolution.

I have been running 5760*1080 for many years and it is so often cpu that bottlenecks.

tldr; gpuwise its a wash, but x34 also requires more cpu.

Why are you multiplying by 144 and 100?
