With overclocking turned on and G-Sync turned on the lines happen even at 60Hz. It does seem WORSE at 100Hz than 60Hz though. I didn't test anything in between. Turning either G-Sync off OR turning overclocking off solves the problem. Using them together is the source, just as smoobandit said.

The problem is subtle but really annoying once you see it. I actually noticed it the first time I fired up DayZ the day I got my monitor but dismissed it as something to do with the anti-glare coating - it is almost like a static overlay on the screen, when you move the camera around there is a parallax type effect.

I tried to get some more good photos of it but I couldn't get another one that showed it clearly.

Thanks for that update. What could be the solution to this? If G-sync ON and OC mode ON produce the lines, one could speculate that it can be fixed with later Nvidia drivers. But that won't happen unless everyone with the monitor has the same issue. Or if it is on the panel side when turning on OC mode, then nothing but an RMA and replacement can solve it, I suppose.

Some pic's... I will say that my first impression after unboxing was that I found the monitor not as big as I expected... comparing it to my old HP LP3065, 30" with big borders around the screen, it especially looks kind of "narrow"... but the picture quality is great and the width really adds to immersion. Not mentionning the 100 Hz (reached without any issue), compared to my former 60 Hz...




You are sit in a salad bowl bros! Nice layout BTW!

They are asking $1700.00 at newegg.ca ! Seriously? This is overpriced for anything Acer but probably still buy one! That would be a blast with anything sims.

Just set mine up.

Cant find a single thing wrong with it.

Just plugged it in and it worked.

100hz no issues, no coil wine, and i cant find any blacklight bleed at all.

Ill have a better look tonight when the lights are off.

But for now im very happy

Thanks guys, I guess salads are happy living in an ergonomic bowl then !

BTW I'm a bit surprised not to suffer from any significant performance hit compared to my old 2560x1600 - although there are more pixels, right? Almost a million or +20% roughly? Maybe not enough to limit a dual SLI Titan X setup, beyond the game optimizations?

(Unrelated to topic): How's your experience with SLi on titan X? Thinking of adding one more to my system.
post #67 of 3061
My experience is great in Windows however I would need the latest games to compare since I seem to max out any of the games I own... except 3d-Marks, my latest bench on firestrike ultra 4k sets me in the top 9%; but I haven't worked out on over clocking yet (i7-5960X running at 3.54 GHz only).

On linux I'm less impressed I can't max out everything in X-Plane without going down to 25-30 fps but I suppose this is a very demanding sim... anyway it's not optimized for SLI AFAIK.

I also bought a cheapo GT 730 as a third non-SLI gpu to drive my 5" internal vga monitor and now-retired-to-office-portrait-use 30" HP 2560x1600. No performance hit that way on the Titan X's (maybe an impact on the driver ?), and I have to set it that way if I want the X34 to be my main monitor (otherwise the way nvidia gpu's seem to work they give priority to dvi - hdmi - dp).

Aww man, I feel heartbroken.

I didn't think Newegg would have them til December so I bought it last week from NCIX for $1800... I should have waited one more week and ordered it from Newegg so I could return it until I had a perfect unit. I'll have to be more careful when I get a new monitor in 6 years I guess. This unit is probably as good as it's going to get anyways.

Yep, this problem sucks and makes this panel not so worth the money. I'm noticing it more and more, but it's always present on one side of my screen. I hope Acer and/or Nvidia become aware of this issue but I doubt they will fix it - it was present on the Swift as well but subtle underneath the inversion. It makes GSYNC look like a bad joke, and kills the purpose of having an OCable panel to 100hz with an added $200 GSYNC module. With these kinds of effects, there shouldn't be an added cost.

Hello Guys

was any of you able to define new customer resolution on this monitor ?

I mean, resolution for "upsampled-screen-taking"

like 4k 21:9
or
2880p etc...

if you achieve a good results, pls post here your monitor timings (CRU tool ?)

thanks

Just a question for you x34 owners.

Im currently running x34 via Display Port 1.1 at 50 hz, connected with my laptop with 680m and Intel HD integrated graphics 4000.

I can put max 50 hz in settings, and when im going advanced settings, i can find that acer x34 Location: on Intel HD Graphics 4000.
Can i change that so monitor can work from my 680m GTX somehow? and will it affect my hz in a positive way? to make it at least 60 hz?

I cant seem to find where i can change that, if at all. Thank you
