Acer Predator X34 X, an improved OLED gaming display with a refresh rate of 240 Hz, was previewed at CES 2024
Acer had earlier announced the Predator X39, but now it has unveiled the Predator X34 X, a more compact model. To put things in perspective, Acer also sent the Predator X34 V3 and Predator Z57 to CES 2024 in Las Vegas in advance of their later-year releases. Regarding the Predator X34 X, it seems to be an update to the Predator X34 V, which Acer revealed nearly a year ago.
The 3,440 x 1,440 (UWQHD) resolution of the Predator X34 V is retained by the Predator X34 X, on the one hand. But instead of sticking with the latter’s 1800R curvature, Acer has adopted an extremely aggressive 800R curvature. In order to reduce image tearing, both monitors also have 0.01 ms reaction times and 99% DCI-P3 color space coverage with AMD FreeSync Premium support.
However, the Predator X34 X is 65 Hz faster than the Predator X34 V thanks to its 240 Hz refresh rate. In addition to being VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 certified, the former should guarantee a 50x increase in dynamic range and a 4x improvement in rise time over DisplayHDR 1000 certified displays. Regretfully, this also only promises a peak brightness of 400 nits.
Furthermore, it is not apparent at the time of writing if Acer has incorporated HDMI 2.0/HDMI 2.1 TMDS or HDMI 2.1 FRL connectors this time; the HDMI ports on the Predator X34 V could support up to 1440p and 100 Hz. After the Predator Z57 and Predator X39, the Acer Predator X34 X will be the second-cheapest monitor that Acer brings to CES 2024. It will be available in the Eurozone starting next quarter (Q2 2024) for €1,299 only.
