Not much was heard regarding Cooler Master’s curved gaming display since it’s first teased back at Computex 2019 until it recently made its appearance on Cooler Master’s official website as the GM34-CW.
If you’re a 21:9 person and the flat display on the Acer Nitro XV340CKP just isn’t your thing and you prefer to have a curved 21:9 display instead, the GM34-CW might be a worthy option to consider for. Although 16:9 displays are still the most popular of all the aspect ratios available, it’s a pretty ballsy move for Cooler Master who decided to go with a 21:9 display as its debuting product as it enters the display market.
The GM34-CW sports a VA Quantum Dot curved panel with 1500R curvature, 144Hz refresh rate with 1ms response time, and support for FreeSync2 and HDR10 of up to 400 nits of peak brightness. As for the inputs, the monitor comes with two DisplayPort and two HDMI inputs that support 144Hz and HDR10. It is still unknown if the GM34-CW is G-SYNC Compatible like those in the list, but you will still be able to experience a smooth, tear-free gaming experience with FreeSync2 using an AMD Radeon graphics card.
The stock stand is surprisingly good in terms of the customization it offers – height adjustment, tilt and swivel, which is more than enough for most end-users. The monitor also supports VESA 75×75 pattern holes for users who prefer to have a more flexible monitor arm to work with.
Unlike the existing Cooler Master products with RGB and ARGB lightings, the GM34-CW only features purple lighting at the back of the monitor. Then again, since it’s still unreleased, who knows Cooler Master might change its mind and add in ARGB lightings at launch? We’re not really a fan of all these fancy RGB lightings but we’re good with everything as long as it can be disabled via physical button of software control.
We have yet to see any official announcement on its pricing and availability from Cooler Master but there are chances that we can expect to see it in the market soon. Well, you don’t just list a product on your official site, leave it there and call it a day, right?
