Acer debuts the XR341CKA gaming monitor
Modern gaming is not all about the video card that sits inside your PC – what good is the latest 3D graphics card when you don’t have a monitor that is sophisticated enough to display all the eye-candy the video card is capable of? This is exactly the point where Acer strikes with its new and very impressive XR341CKA gaming monitor.
The new Acer XR341CKA offers full 34-inches of gaming goodness and as if this is not enough the monitor is also curved and has support for NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology, which might as well make it the world’s first monitor that combines all these features in one place. The display offers IPS technology and 4K resolution at 3440 x 1440 pixels (21:9 aspect ratio) and 75 Hz of maximum refresh rate. The display has 100 per cent coverage of the sRGB color space and uses the innovative ZeroFrame technology that makes bezels almost non-existent. Moreover the XR341CKA comes with an aluminum stand that allows users to tilt the display between -5 degrees and +35 degrees for optimal viewing angles. The included G-Sync technology provides gamers with smooth gameplay as it synchronizes the frames that come from the video card with the monitor refresh rate.
Acer has not forgotten the expected connectivity options and the XR341CKA offers HDMI and DisplayPort inputs as well as several USB 3.0 ports. The display comes with two 7W integrated speakers too so you have a choice whether to use your own speakers of the ones integrated in the monitor, although we doubt they will be able to offer high sound quality.
All is good, isn’t it, but there’s something that you will not like – the XR341CKA will be commercially available this fall, likely in September, and will sell for USD 1300, which makes the monitor a viable option for people with big wallets. In any case, however, the XR341CKA is a very fine piece of hardware.
