Acer's new Predator Z35P monitor is a 35-inch gaming behemoth

Acer has thrown another bone to the gaming crowd with its latest monitor, the Predator Z35 (opens in new tab). The company has just launched the 35-inch curved behemoth (via Anandtech), as an update to the original Z35, offering an increased resolution and more.

Down to raw specs, the Predator Z35 includes a 35-inch curved 3440x1440 (21:9) screen with a speedy 100Hz refresh rate. The VA panel can reach a peak brightness of 300 nits, and features a 4ms response time. Support for NVIDIA's G-Sync tech, which tackles screen tearing by closely managing frame pacing, is also on board here.

Though it's packed to the gills with features that gamers are sure to appeal to gamers, the Predator Z35P comes at a steep price. You'll be able to get your hands on the Z35P in the coming weeks for $1,099, and Amazon is already taking preorders.

  • Meh. Great for productivity, but ultra wides pretty much suck intermittently for gaming. I had two 21:9 monitors and tried to like them, but 4k or even 1080p are better due to games not fully using the monitor edges.
  • Yeah, I agree. A lot of video sites don't use the monitor for its full potential either. I get edges vertically and horizontally when watching cinema style videos on YouTube.
  • Speak for yourself. I game on a z34 21:9 and will never go back. BF1, Titanfall 2, Witcher 3 are all incredible on my monitor. 21:9 native support is becoming a standard option, and even when it isn't supported fully, there are a number of options for dealing with it.
  • One day, one day a decent monitor will come at a more consumer friendly price point. Is this panel 10 bit? Is that question an oxymoron to the statement before it?
  • I have the Acer X34 and absolutely LOVE it! Of course going from a 17" laptop to this, it's difficult to not LOVE it! :-)
  • I'll just get dual 4K monitors Or dual 4k TVs for cheaper. Or even 3 of them :D. If you in the heat of gaming, I don't think color accuracy isn't gonna matter as much as staying alive. Sure 100hz is great, but 60Hz is still very nice. 
  • A single 4k monitor gets you more pixels than this... Not sure why you would need two.
