Acer Predator Z35P 35-inch monitor trades refresh for resolution

Acer

Acer's $1,000 Predator Z35 (£800, AU$1,899) spreads its pixels pretty thin: the 35-inch curved gaming display's 2,560x1,080 resolution means it has a pixel density of 79 pixels per inch. Not the sharpest display in the stable. It's now joined by the Z35P, a new 3,440 x 1,440 panel in a similar chassis, delivering a significant increase to about 107ppi. It also adds a USB hub and tightens the curve a bit, dropping from 2000R to 1800R, the trendy radius du jour.

At $1,100, the Z35P isn't that much more expensive, either. I don't have UK or Australian pricing, but directly converted that's about £850, AU$1,470. The monitor is expected to ship by the end of May.

The increase in resolution should visibly improve the sharpness; as for the rest, I don't know how noticeable you'll find it. There's one notable trade-off, though: the Z35's maximum refresh is 144Hz -- 200Hz with overclocking -- while the Z35P tops out at 100Hz/120Hz. So its G-Sync/ULMB support will probably come in a lot handier on the Z35P.

Otherwise, it looks like everything's the same.
