Acer has launched a new monitor that PC gamers are going to love. The Acer XR341CKA is a 34 inch UltraWide curved monitor with Quad HD 3,440×1,440 pixel resolution and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, which reduces screen tear and stutter. It also has two 7W speakers and DTS sound and is supported by an aluminum base.
The XR341CKA monitor has a 21:9 UltraWide Quad HD resolution IPS display panel that delivers up to a 178-degree viewing angle. That broader view should give users a more immersive experience with entertainment and gaming for sure.
Since the screen is curved, every corner of the screen is at the same distance from the user’s eyes, so it is said to be a uniform viewing experience. You can even configure it in a multi-monitor setup for an enhanced gaming.
It comes packing NVIDIA G-SYNC technology that enables 6-axis color adjustment and the monitor can also display the refresh rate on-screen. Users will get three different aim-point icons to choose from. A red ambient light at the lower edge of the monitor shows when G-SYNC mode is on. It has the usual HDMI and DisplayPort inputs and the XR341CKA also has a built-in USB 3.0 hub which also supports high-speed charging of smartphones and other devices.
The Acer XR341CKA monitor will be available in North America this September starting at $1,299. That’s a decent price.
