ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 92

post #911 of 3066
Since Nvidia released the driver allowing Gsync in Window Mode (last summer if'm right), we need to enable Vsync on NVCP and for those using SLI, enable "Vsync ON - Smooth".
This way, FPS are systematically capped to the max display's frequency.
If you let these options OFF, then FPS will go higher and you'll get tearing.
So there is no need to use FPS limiter such as Riva Tuner etc.

Also, from my experience, enabling Vsync (in Gsync mode) do not bring more input lag.

I am running SLI and did just this, I haven't seen any hit to performance with V-Sync on. The website does say you will take a hit though, given that I'm running 2 980 TI I'd imagine I'll never notice it

What is Smooth Vsync?
Smooth Vsync is a new technology that can reduce stutter when Vsync is enabled and SLI is active.

When SLI is active and natural frame rates of games are below the refresh rate of your monitor, traditional vsync forces frame rates to quickly oscillate between the refresh rate and half the refresh rate (for example, between 60Hz and 30Hz). This variation is often perceived as stutter. Smooth Vsync improves this by locking into the sustainable frame rate of your game and only increasing the frame rate if the game performance moves sustainably above the refresh rate of your monitor. This does lower the average framerate of your game, but the experience in many cases is far better.

Also February 1 ship date


Worth waiting then!

Quick question... Can I use this monitor at 144hz 1440p with black bars or is 100hz the limit with G-sync?

100hz is the limit of the panel

Just damn, I want to give acer my money but they apparently don't want it lol

Thing is waiting for the Asus version, I'm not sure I want to dive in as first batch of owners given the problems.

Here's my main question, and only reason I keep asking stuff is because I just can't order it yet else it'd of been done lol but my question is this, is this probably one of the better current monitors you can buy to sort of future proof yourself awhile in that department? With games utilizing that resolution more and pascal cards coming, I'd like to think this resolution at 100hz should be a solid upgrade for a nice few years.

Not sure you can really future proof anything that said its a 34" 21:9 IPS display with 100hz, it's really more than most people even need and 100hz is plenty. I'm not sure why people wait the Asus model when it's the exact same LG panel. The difference will the bezel

Bandwidth limitations of display port 1.2 will keep this current generation mostly where it is, where the next DP generation takes us will probably be higher resolution 4k monitors moving faster than 60hz

Yes I just mean more or less a worthy upgrade that will always get boosts with upcoming gpus. Just somethin that will give one satisfaction for the time being, that's what I sort of look for.

Yea the Asus model doesn't tempt me, I just want to order the x34 already

My 2x 980ti are frequently maxing out most this on this panel so I'm happy with it as far as that goes. I'm sure as games become more demanding it'll have diminishing returns but your GPU will be the biggest purchase towards future movement not your panel.

Heck these 100hz 3440x1440 monitors are already obsolete. Dell has a 4k 120hz amoled monitor now that's the cutting edge. In the next 5 years I'm sure we will have 8k 144hz 21:9 amoled monitors at the forefront.

In all honesty I'd say right now is the worst time possible to try to buy a monitor to "future proof" since the big boom on tablets and smart phones are pushing panel technology at such a huge pace at the moment and the ceiling on resolution seems to be at the very least 8k.

That said, when you want/need/can afford an upgrade, you should do it. If you wait for things to level out, you are in for a long wait.

The next batch of X34's post recall is supposed to ship on the 18th, so the difference between the Acer now or the Asus later is 2 weeks or less.
