ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 84

post #831 of 3057
I tried 3-4 different cables, but they are Cablematters, so not so great. They worked fine at 4k 60Hz though. I ordered an Accell cable and it gets delivered tomorrow.

I have the scanlines in the pendulum demo with gsync on. I notice it in very low FPS games but I really have to look very very close in order to notice it. I don't have any in games at 60+FPS. Other than only 95Hz overclock, thats the only issue I have had. Mine has a November manufacture date on the box. ProVantage says they are getting their next shipment before the 20th.

Unless I'm missing something it doesn't say anywhere that the monitor will ship by default at 100 Hz.

I have a November built unit and it only OCs to 95 Hz. Anything higher results in flickering/black screen. Also has coil whine on white pages and BLB which is a little worse than my earlier October built unit. Looking to swap it out one last time at Microcenter and hope I come out a winner.

Only reason I am tempted to keep playing the lottery is that I got monitor at a deep discount which will be near-impossible to replicate at another retailer.

We both bought ours from NCIX. Were from Canada, and they were in stock with them for about a month leading upto Xmas. It was my first time dealing with them, but have since bought a few different things. I haven't checked the manufacture date yet but I will do so and get back to you.

I can't find a speck of info anywhere that says you have to overclock it, or that it is a 60Hz display by default other than here. Asus simply says it's 100Hz from their official sources. The Acer always has "overclocked" around their 100Hz marketing. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part though.

It's definitely an overclock, no difference from the X34 in this regard.

The OSD is shown in this video, near the end you can see the "Over Clock" menu item, just like the PG279Q : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5lef-d65z4

That is an old video, that could have changed during development

That's awesome it has the joystick on the back like the Samsung TVs. Far superior than a row of buttons. That right there is a good enough reason to get it over the X34.

I agree, the OSD controls on the X34 are awful, worst I've ever used.

Would be tempted to wait on the Asus model if it didn't have that abortion of a stand.
post #840 of 3057
Does anyone know why scaling doesn't work in some games? Doesn't matter what I have set in the nVidia control panel it seems like only blizzard games will properly scale the image with black bars at 2560x1440.

Alien Isolation, Crysis 3, Need for Speed, pretty much every game I set to 2560x1440 will stretch across the whole screen.

Neither aspect or 1:1 change a thing when I set them in the OSD.
