Yes, every sample is affected by scanlines if we take for true this explanation given for the X34 which uses basically the same panel (be it an older revision or not):

Quote:
 "scan lines are an effect caused by rapidly changing refresh rate. Variations in the refresh rate create an increased holding time that results in the accumulation of an electrical charge. When this charge is released, it causes small variations in the frame that result in faint horizontal lines."

 

I don't see why they would have to lie about this. And some people reported it gets worse with time, I don't have any exact numbers though.

 

So the main question for me is "will it get much much worse in a few years?". Personally I wouldn't change this monitor at least for another ~5 years once I get it, and there is really no assurance (at least at this point) that it won't get worse.

The real question is why is this monitor effected and other g sync displays aren't.. and what electrical design elements can be changed to stop it.

I have a single 980ti, wondering if I'll have enough power to make the most out of this monitor?

Running 980 ti sli @1380 mhz. Supersmooth smile.gif
Though a single should be OK for most people. You can turn off AA if you like and not have that much jaggies.

I know that some people are really bothered by it, but to me, it is low on my list of concerns considering all the other defects today's displays can suffer from. I'd take the scanlines any day over poor uniformity, pixel inversion, etc

OK, thanks, I see what you mean.
Honestly, I reported that I do not have scan lines as I originally did not really notice those.
At my normal viewing distance of about 60 cm for me barely noticeable. I guess it's a question of eyesight and knowing what to look for.
Let's hope this does not get worse over time. I'm surely planning to keep this for few years.

tranceholic, the manufacturing date is on the little white sticker together with serial number in the back by the inputs.

two questions for your other owner's out there:

1.
the red ROG projection light (Light in motion) doesn't turn on when the monitor comes out of sleep or is turned on by my master-slave electrical socket.
If I go into the settings it is still active, but no light. Turning it on and off again in the settings turns it on, but it just happens again as soon as i shut down/go to sleep.
Anyone else have this?

2.
Also, has anyone tested out the overdrive (OD) function?
So far I haven't seen any difference except that on extreme I sometimes have slight ripples/tearing (but could have been some other issue in the game, not sure yet)


edit: for the list my manu'ftd date is Jan 2016

It's not necessarily a flaw with the display, it's just a very specific set of parameters where you can replicate scanlines.

Is 50-60 really low FPS to you? I can see scanlines watching to the sky in Witcher 3 at 60-65 and sitting a 2fts from the screen.
I understand it's a matter of personal taste but to me, it's even more annoying than 2-3 dead pixels since less noticeable than scanlines wink.gif

Also, it seems all panels are not affected with the same strenght, that explains why some users report no seeing them.
The most important question is how scanlines get worse with time as Asus stated that they will not consider any defect reported when display is overclocked.

from owner to owners , what is your favorite preset for desktop use and color accuracy ? personally I find the movie/cinema as the best for everything.

I go against the current and like my picture bright and colors to pop so I'm using standard mode and backlight at 12 smile.gif
