Acer today introduced the world’s first curved monitor with NVIDIA G-Sync technology. The XR341CKA is a 34-inch UltraWide monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio and QHD 3440 x 1440 resolution.
The main highlights of the new monitor from Acer are a zero-frame design with an aluminum base, ambient lighting options, DTS Sound, and two integrated 7W speakers. Since the monitor has almost no bezels, you can easily configure it in a multi-monitor setup.
The monitor uses an IPS panel with a claimed 100% sRGB color gamut coverage. Thanks to the high color gamut coverage and accurate color reproduction, Acer claims the monitor can even be used by design professionals and photo enthusiasts.
Acer XR341CKA comes with a few impressive features targeted at gamers as well. Users will be able to choose from three different aim-point icons and take control of the 6-axis color adjustment enabled by NVIDIA G-Sync. The monitor also displays the refresh rate on-screen. When the NVIDIA G-Sync technology is enabled, a red ambient light will glow at the lower edge of the monitor.
The curved monitor will go on sale in North America by September this year for a price-tag of $1,299. It has been priced at €1,399 for the EMEA region and ¥8,999 for the Chinese market.
