Announced today as part of their Computex line-up is the new Acer Predator X34 X5. This is a 34″ ultrawide OLED gaming screen offering a 3440 x 1440 resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate. It has a subtle 1800R curvature and is built around the recently produced Samsung Display QD-OLED panel, offering an alternative to models from MSI and Gigabyte which have previously been announced using this panel. This is an updated panel from the first gen 175Hz QD-OLED panel that has been widely used in the 34″ OLED market to date.

Acer Predator X34 X5 Specs

The screen is built around a Samsung Display QD-OLED panel. It offers a 1800R curvature, 3440 x 1440 resolution, 0.03ms G2G response time spec, 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio, 250 nits typical brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, a 10-bit colour depth and a wide colour gamut covering 99% of the DCI-P3 reference space. The screen should have the standard semi-glossy coating finish of these QD-OLED panels.

The 240Hz refresh rate is supported by adaptive-sync for variable refresh rates (VRR) from compatible systems, with the screen being certified under the AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and NVIDIA ‘G-sync Compatible’ schemes.

For HDR the OLED panel offers the usual per-pixel level dimming, true blacks and basically infinite contrast ratio (subject to ambient lighting conditions). Acer list a peak brightness spec of 1000 nits (3% APL).

Connectivity and other features

For connectivity the screen has 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC), 1x USB type-C connectivity (with DP Alt mode, data and 90W power delivery) and 2x HDMI 2.1 ports (capabilities not listed). 2x USB ports and an audio output are also offered.

For maximum comfort, the new monitor offers adjustable tilt, swivel, and height, allowing gamers to find the perfect viewing angle for any environment. It also comes with modest 2x 5W integrated speakers, and a built-in KVM switch to effortlessly switch between two PCs with a single keyboard and mouse setup. With eye comfort in mind, the screen features ‘BlueLightShield Pro’, flickerless, low-dimming, and ‘ComfyView’ technologies to help prevent eye fatigue.

OLED Care

Acer has also implemented several OLED screen protection mechanisms to help extend the monitor’s lifespan and maintain image quality; Display Saver (always on) for automatic dimming when the screen is inactive, Constant Brightness (which seems to be a uniform brightness mode), plus Image Retention Refresh and Screen Move (always on) to minimize stuck pixels and images.

Pricing and Availability

The Predator X34 X5 will be available in North America in Q4, starting at USD 1,099.99; in EMEA in Q4, starting at EUR 1,399, and in China in Q4, starting at RMB 7,999.
