Can someone tell me what the hell fast sync is? I've heard of vsync, gsync and freesync. But this is new lol.

Most of recent games at max settings and 2k resolution will result in 55-80 fps. So, the same will be the monitor's refresh rate in Hz.

It's like playing on an old LCD monitor with max 60 Hz refresh rate, even if you have XB271HU.

Most of people can tell the difference between 60 Hz and 120-165 Hz just by looking at screen and moving the mouse. Low refresh rate is definitely not comfortable for eyes.

That's why Gsync is a stupid technology. It turns your modern 165 Hz display into an old 60 Hz garbage.

I have disabled Gsync completely and now using only Fast Sync at constant 165 Hz

IMO Adaptive Sync (G-Sync/Freesync) is one of the best achievement in the monitor technology and not stupid. It seems you've misunderstood the concept completely.

LCDs are not CRTs anyway, they won't hurt your eyes because of flickering at low refresh rate. Maybe you have defective XB271HU tongue.gif

Yep, agreed about Adaptive Sync technologies. Can't believe it took anyone this long to figure it out. It is only really useful when the engine renders at less than the desired refresh rate and fluctuates wildly. In this situation, which is more common in demanding titles, G-Sync/Free-Sync enables scan-outs to occur naturally without waiting for a hard refresh interval that can potentially add input latency and visual stutter.

Nice find, mate!

I'm in the EU though, so that will set it back to $167 after shipping and taxes. But it's probably worth it, since Colormunkis are ~$199 here.

But on the other hand, it's faster shipping and easier to RMA... but how often do you RMA a ColorMunki? tongue.gif

Indeed. I don't think one G-SYNC monitor has PWM dimming, so they look fine at lower refresh rates. 60 FPS for example is still 60 FPS, whether the refresh rate is 60 Hz or 144 Hz. There will be slightly more motion blur at 60 Hz is all, although the difference isn't as pronounced as expected and it's secondary to screen tearing which is horrible.

An ditch my XB321HK. The pixel density is ofcourse higher on it, but its not THAT bad.

Quality wise the panels seem about the same, calibrating the new one with my current one was no issue at all. No uneven backlight bleed and no weird (sub) pixels biggrin.gif

Would you mine sharing your calibration settings between the two monitors please?

My calibration settings are probably way off the ideal white point due to the lightning in my room (very warm)

This is my experience of pleasant white balance, so you'd probably want to shave the green way back up.

XB321HK: RGB: 100, 68, 81
XB271HU: RGB: 100, 67, 86

Think the red and blue is pretty decently balanced.
Just keep in mind that every monitor/panel can be different.

All the rest of the settings are pretty much fine as they are by default in my experience. If you want so called 100% precision I guess you should just turn on SRGB mode tongue.gif

you can't avoid IPS glow on an IPS panel as far as I know.
