Acer announced the release of another FreeSync monitor to their lineup. The Predator XR343CKP offers a 34″, ultrawide, curved IPS panel with a 3440 x 1440 resolution. Being an IPS panel, the 1 ms response time (with MPRT, so, an added blur reduction mode is taken into account for this response time) is a premium specification. It features an up to 100 Hz refresh rate with FreeSync technology enabling variable refreshes without screen tearing.
The panel offers a typical 1,000:1 contrast ratio with a relatively low 350 cd/m² typical brightness, 172/178 viewing angles, 1.07 billion color depth and standard sRGB color gamut. Display Inputs include HDMI, DisplayPort, and 5x USB ports. All of this can be available for the modest amount of $1799… Which isn’t at all the number I expected to be quitting based on the specs alone, and looking at other market offerings. But that’s what’s being shown on Acer’s page – though some retailers, such as Amazon Germany, are offering this for some €893 (~$1000), which is much more realistic.
