I bought this monitor and have been using it for a few weeks. I love it. But it's missing one feature that would make it perfect. I think the Acer Predator X34 GS would be the perfect gaming monitor if it supported a 16:9/5:9 Picture-By-Picture Mode.
It's my hope that the Acer Predator team takes notice and considers how useful this feature would be for gamers.
Hopefully other members will see this and add their comments to gain some traction.
Here's why - The use case is a Twitch/Youtube etc. game/desktop streamer:
As someone coming from a 3 monitor setup, moving to a single 34 inch ultrawide has freed up an immense amount of desktop space. And I love it.
The extra width has helped me in my video production work but the *only area* that I find it a bit difficult to work with is when I'm streaming 16:9 games.
It's ideal to have OBS (Opern Broadcast Software) with chat apps open beside a full screen game so that you can monitor your stream as well as keep up with the chat.
Of course one could use PiP instead of PbP but it's much more clunky and demands relying on zoning apps that aren't pixel perfect.
**The Best Solution** would be to have your monitor in Picture by Picture mode with the game running in fullscreen 16:9 on one side while the other side in 5:9 has your streaming software (OBS in my case) and chat/browser apps etc.
2 desktops combined into one with aspect ratios that are useful for running a 16:9 game in fullscreen while still being able to view your game streaming software and chat apps.
This would be the ultimate game streaming monitor if only the X34 GS Predator supported this mode in the OSD. It would be so much more useful than an equal split down the center of the monitor.
Is it possible for the Acer Predator Team to add this to a firmware update for the X34 GS?
