There hasn’t been much fuss made by Acer about this new display, which appears to be an update to the previous Predator XR342CK. The new XR342CKP offers an increased native refresh rate compared with the old model, boosting it from 75Hz to 100Hz now. That seems to be the main change with the P model, as it remains similar in other specs and features.
The XR342CKP is a 34″ curved ultrawide screen with a 3440 x 1440 resolution IPS panel. As we said earlier it has a native 100Hz refresh rate this time, and supports AMD FreeSync for variable refresh rates. There is a 1ms MPRT spec quoted which implies that there is an added motion blur reduction mode on this model, although the spec pages from Acer don’t make this clear. The screen also offers a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 172/178 viewing angles, 1.07b colour depth and standard sRGB colour gamut.
Connectivity wise there are DisplayPort, HDMI and 5x USB ports provided (1 of those we suspect is the upstream, again not clear from the spec page). There are 2x 7W integrated speakers on this model and we expect also a headphone output. Tilt, height and swivel adjustments are offered from the stand.
The XR342CKP is listed on Acer’s website now with a RRP of $1799 USD. This is $100 more than the older XR342CK is listed at.
