ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 93

Lol I knew I shouldn't of used the term future proof.

I upgrade stuff every 2 years or so. And I'm not one that believes in chasing the wind with pc parts..

No matter what someone lists as a great purchase, the day it releases somethin better is in the works..i just look at it in incremental windows, what is something I don't have that I can enjoy for a year or two or three until I'm itching to buy yet again something new.

That's my goal and how I've rolled since building pcs starting in early 90s

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.


I guess it's how you view your purchases, that dell monitor has no adaptive sync.. and good luck hitting 120hz in 4k I have the Acer 4k 60hz panel and with 2 980 I still struggled to get 60FPS constantly in high end games.

I've also owned a 144hz TN ROG panel, the big leap between that and the new generation was IPS display vs TN. I can honestly say I don't notice a difference of 100hz to 144hz

Buy what makes you happy man, I mean I totally get it as someone who has upgraded their 4k TV twice in the past year and half.

No, the Dell UP3017Q is not out yet and probably won't be until the end of the year 2016. Most likely because it will require DisplayPort 1.3 in order to achieve those kind of refresh rates @ UHD resolution (3840 x 2160). There is no guarantee that Nvidia and AMD next-gen cards will have DP 1.3 output, so don't hold your breath. Also, it does NOT have any kind of dynamic refresh rate technology (G-Sync or FreeSync). That means this monitor is a 'no go' for most gamers tongue.gif

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

Why would you want to get the ACER Predator X34 with all these issues. The ASUS PG348Q has had a longer production time, so most of these issues will be fixed, also it seems the ASUS PG348Q is 100hz out of the box. You get 3 years warranty as well, the panel is not the problem it is ACER QC

I don't think even DP 1.3 can hit 4k 120hz with 10-bit color. I never would have thought cable technology would be the one to hold back the industry, but here we are.

they are literally the same parts. Any problem one of them has, the other will also have.

The only real difference will be the bezel and the stand.

Kind of like how a Chevrolet 1500 and a GM 1500 pick-up truck are the same thing with different badges.

In my experience both vendors are panel lottery, I have a perfect X34 so why would I want to play the panel lottery with Asus? Where have you read that PG348Q is 100hz out of the box? My understanding was it's overclocked the exact same was as the X34. As an original adopter of the ROG swift I had horrible problems with Asus QC as well.

Acer also provides a 3 year warranty as well.

But I am by no means advocating one or the other, I personally like the overall aesthetics of the X34 more than the PG34

ACER has a two year warranty in the UK, it was on PCPER podcast about the out of the box 100hz, also every article on the ASUS PG348Q does not say anything about overclocking (CES 2016) unlike the ACER Predator X34

The panel is not the problem, it was ACER QC, why is why they managed to fix the wake up issue.

acer is nothing but problems, and the pg348q will come clocked out of the box at 100hz. i sent the acer back for a full refund i don't play this change out game. acer is trash and if asus pg348q have the same problems then it will be trash also. then i will wait for the 4k 120hz dell. my asus pg278q tn is doing just fine with no problems.

https://pcmonitors.info/asus/asus-pg348q-100hz-curved-ultrawide-ips/

That states it's a 60hz monitor with 100hz OC capability, didn't see out of the box 100hz

I'm quite literally surprised that a selling point is that they've pre overclocked the panel to 100hz.. It literally is opening up the OSD and switching it to 100
