Elite XG341C-2K: ViewSonic unveils ultra-wide gaming monitor with 1,400 nits peak brightness and a 200 Hz refresh rate
ViewSonic has introduced the Elite XG341C-2K, a gaming monitor that relies on a 34-inch VA panel with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 1500R curvature. As such, the ultra-wide monitor has a stretched native resolution compared to its flat counterparts. Specifically, the Elite XG341C-2K operates at 3,440 x 1,440 pixels, which it complements with a 200 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response times (MPRT).
Additionally, ViewSonic has included AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support to avoid image tearing and boasts that the monitor covers 97% of the DCI-P3 colour space. Similarly, the Elite XG341C-2K should reproduce 99% of the NTSC colour space. Arguably a highlight of ViewSonic's latest gaming monitor is its Mini LED backlights, of which there are 1,152 local dimming zones. Incidentally, these have resulted in the Elite XG341C-2K receiving VESA DisplayHDR 1400 certification, which ensures 1,400 nits of peak luminance when viewing HDR content, or a still impressive 720 nits in SDR content.
Separately, the Elite XG341C-2K has two HDMI 2.1 ports, DisplayPort and a USB Type-C port. Moreover, ViewSonic has equipped the monitor with a USB Type-A hub that supports the USB 3.2 standard. For reference, the Elite XG341C-2K has stereo 5 W speakers and an adjustable stand. The Elite XG341C-2K is available to order now in the Eurozone for €2,309, including VAT.
