The massive monitor is even larger than the 35-inch HP Omen X 35 and comes with many of the same features including full sRGB coverage, UWQHD resolution, and a similar $1300 USD asking price.

Gaming monitors seem to be getting larger and with more packed features than ever. The upcoming Acer XR382CQK is a 37.5-inch curved monitor with the following core specifications:

  • UltraWide 21:9 IPS display
  • Full sRGB coverage
  • AMD FreeSync compatible
  • 300-nit backlight
  • 75 Hz refresh rate
  • 5 ms black-white response time
  • DisplayPort, mini-DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0, MHL 2.1 (up to 1080p), USB 3.0 hub
  • Stereo 7 W speakers

Interestingly, the Amazon listing for the monitor is claiming a native resolution of 3840 x 1600 pixels while the official Acer US website is claiming 3440 x 1600 pixels. Based on the aspect ratio of the display, we're more inclined to believe that Acer US has made the specification error.

Other features include Picture-in-Picture, EyeProtect to eliminate flickering, and Blue-light Filtering technology to reduce the intensity of blue light for extended gaming sessions.

The pre-order price for the Acer XR382CQK is a hefty $1300 USD. The availability of this gaming-centric Acer monitor comes just weeks after HP showed off its Omen X 35 gaming monitor with both G-Sync and full sRGB coverage for the exact same retail launch price of $1300 USD.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
