Nixeus Introduces The EDG34 A 34″ 3440×1440 144hz Ultrawide Gaming Monitor
Nixeus was one of the first to market with a wide range Freesync panel with the NX-VUE24 and the industry setting 30-144hz range and they're back but this time to bring their talents to the ultrawide scene. The Nixeus NX-EDG34 is the Baldwin Park based display makers first foray into the 21:9 aspect world and if their past endeavors are anything to go off of then this should be a home run.
One of the most obvious features would be the sharp curve, rather than go with the typical 1800R curve that most panels go with Nixeus has gone with a 1500R curve which is a bit more aggressive of a curve. The EDG34 features a 34" 3440x1440 VA panel that features a native 144hz through Display Port 1.4 but only 100hz through HDMI 2.0. Through the Display Port 1.4 line you'll have access to the 48-144hz Freesync range, and while that's not quite the 30-144hz the VUE24 and the EDG27/24 deliver it's still a nice wide band that gives you access to Low Framerate Compensation.
The Nixeus EDG34 comes in two flavors, one with a tilt base and another that has a fully adjustable stand. The EDG34S with the stationary stand is pictured below and features a headphone/headset stand at the top and it shows off the light bars behind the panel.
