I am in the same boat mate, I wanted to upgrade around December to Ultrawide (already got buyer for my XB271HU), then I heard about X34P that is coming out. Now it was delayed till Q1 2017 (I hope it is January...), and I have to wait, and waiting is painful frown.gif

Yeah, the X34P is due around Q1 next year, Acer has been silent since it was revealed.
I don't believe 4K is worth it unless you're running a Titan or 2x 1080s and don't mind 60Hz.

I had an ultrawide monitor for a couple of months but desired more Hz and G-Sync. I'm really hoping I can find an X34 on sale for Black Friday / Cyber Monday next month.
The X34P doesn't offer anything extra that I want and I don't want more curvature.

The only thing that ever bothers me with 21:9 is the black bars in cutscenes and some games are broken.

"rescale hud" anyone ?

If you can wait for the X34P then do it. They made some major improvements to the physical monitor/stand as well.

Since i've never seen a curved gaming monitor in real life i have to ask. Can i gaming monitor be to much curved? smile.gif
I mean the old one has 3.800R and the P-model 1.900R. Those number does not tell me much tongue.gif

Which is only an option in a few games.

Not sure what the fuss is about the X34P. It's identical to the X34 but with a slightly increased curve radius. Both 34" 3440x1440 100 Hz IPS.

I went from a 120Hz Qnix to the LG 34UC88-B (3440x1440, 75Hz *Freesync/AMD ONLY*, 1900R Curve, IPS) and I'm pretty happy with it. The curve will probably feel distorted for a few days, but your mind quickly turns the curved lines into straight lines since that's what human brains do.

As mentioned, the only drawbacks of 21:9 ratio is that not all games fully support it, but for the games that do, it is pretty damn nice! Lots of recent films (2013 and newer) tend to be close to a 21:9 ratio, so you can actually get a very immersive experience watching them compared to a 16:9 monitor. I wouldn't recommend 4K gaming unless you are able to run with 2x high-end GPUs and deal with any potential CF/SLI issues.

The panel might be the same but some of the bugs are probably removed smile.gif 100Hz are now native refresh rate so you wont get stuck at 90-95Hz as some has.
Also the OSD menu are faster and the buttons has a new look and placement.
The problem with x34 is that you still has the risk to get hold of a old batch with all freaking bugs.

Believe i have to see one of them before i decide how much curve i want smile.gif

The back of the panel isn't a glossy plastic anymore and they also added a swivel to the stand. I'd rather wait to get full 100hz out of the box then play the lottery like so many people did with the x34 and PG348Q.
