XR382CQK

ACER £1,200

PC GAMER (UK) - - HARDWARE -

If your mantra for dis­plays is to go big or go home, Acer hears you. Its XR382CQK is a mas­sive 38-inch curved screen that looks stun­ning. It fea­tures a QHD ultrawide (UW) panel with a 3840x1600 res­o­lu­tion, and an as­pect ra­tio of 24:10 that’s slightly wider than the ‘stan­dard’ 21:9 AR seen on other UW dis­plays.

Not con­tent to end there, the dis­play also fea­tures FreeSync with up to 75Hz vari­able re­fresh rates. If you’re look­ing for some­thing to turn heads, this is the best ultrawide gam­ing dis­play.

For games that prop­erly sup­port ultrawide res­o­lu­tions, the sur­round ef­fect of the XR382CQK is in­cred­i­bly im­mer­sive – sit­ting at your desk, the 38-inch panel com­pletely fills your field of view.

The cost for the best ultrawide dis­play is steep, but at least you won’t need to up­grade again for many years. £1,200 for the XR382CQK may be a bit­ter pill to swal­low, but the beauty of this screen will wash away the nasty taste in your mouth the in­stant you boot up your favourite games in 24:10 glory. And bar­ring to­tal hard­ware fail­ure, this dis­play should keep you gam­ing hap­pily for years to come.
