Page 1: Reviewed: Acer Predator Z35
The Acer Predator Z35 provides not only a large diagonal width of 35 inches but also a solid curve and G-Sync support. Whether that’s enough to make the model stand out in the extremely competitive gaming market, we’ll find out in our test today.
Acer offers the Predator X34 as an absolute high-end gaming monitor with a size of 34” and a resolution of 3440 x 1440. Making it really stand out as a gaming monitor, though, is the 100 Hz refresh rate and G-Sync support. Another gaming model that stands out from Acer is the Predator Z35 which comes in 1 inch larger, but, offers a lower 2560 x 1080 resolution. Of course, this isn’t a complete disadvantage as one of the benefits to the lower resolution is the fact that less GPU power is require to get a silky smooth gaming experience. Something else that stands out is the fact that while most 34” monitors offer a refresh rate of up to 100Hz, the Z35 goes as high as 200 Hz. While the default Hz is 144, with the use of an NVIDIA card and G-Sync, you can overclock that to 200 Hz.
Interestingly, another fact that stands out if the curve. While the current gaming 34” model offers an LG Panel with a radius of 3,800 mm, the Z35 uses a 2,000 mm curved panel resulting in a much larger curve. Ultimately, one of the benefits to this is the added immersion you get. On the topic of curvature, the recently reviewed LG 34UC98-W carries an even stronger curve of 1,800 mm.
