The Acer Predator XR341CK 34″ ultra-wide 21:9 curved gaming screen with G-SYNC will be arriving Q2 2015, and will provide a new option for gamers who do not want to purchase multiple monitors for surround gaming.

The resolution is a whopping 3440×1440, which pushes the limits of DisplayPort 1.2. A lower resolution model is also rumored, with 2560×1080 resolution. No word on Ultra Low Motion Blur yet (ULMB) strobing yet.

    DisplayPort 1.2 has supports 17.28 Gb/s minus packet headers and DP 1.3 supports 25.92, where this monitor needs about 17.12 Gb/s at 24 bpp.

    DP 1.3 theoretically supports full 16:9 UHD@24 bpp at nearly 130 Hz and the display above at ~218 Hz.

    The TFTCentral news item points out that this is supposed to come in a G-sync version, which should be further confirmation that it’s only DP 1.2 (plus Nvidia proprietary extensions).
