@SkyPC, sorry man, not too much of a gamer due to workload this time of year (hence the 2 doc pics tongue.gif) ...
I just fired up ME2 (loved mass effect 1 and did not play mass effect 2 until now so I figured since 3 is out, I might as well play 2... tongue.gif )
I also tried the Skyrim just to see how it looks on 1440p...
Hopefully I'll get a chance over the weekend to kill a couple of hours but I would think that 5850 CF without AA+AF would be fine. In the 10 mins I bothered with ME2+Skyrim i didn't see anything that would let me think otherwise....

I sometimes have a similarly problem with my asus v245h, basically the monitor goes into sleep mode with no input and it will be a few seconds before anything gets displayed, typically missing my bios.

Somebody mentioned it would not be possible because the monitor didn't have a scaler and to be honest, I'm not that technical when it comes to monitors nor did I research much on the topic but, wouldn't this prove otherwise? Sound off and tell me what you think. Also, apologies for the crappy quality of my pictures. My little MetroPCS cel its doing the best it can.

I purchased this monitor from dream-seller for $427.00 a week ago. Since then it has been creeping up and it sits at $499.00 as of this writing. The seller green-sum still had it at ~ $430 until today when he priced it up $100 more! YIKES! All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with the monitor. For the price it can't be beat. smile.gif Hope it helps those who are considering between models.
P.S.: Oh yeah, the speakers are not worth it on this thing. Of course I wasn't expecting Dolby here... tongue.gif

Interesting! You're making me wish I went with a multi-input model now tongue.gif I can live with the input lag as long as it's not incredibly overbearing.

"Dear Mr. C W,
Thanks for your email.
I confirm again with our technical staff today, was told that the model with 2560x1440@120Hz has been stopped production from now on, since supporting 120Hz drive board that we used to import from South Korea can not be found now.
The model with 2560x1440@120Hz use the panel with LVDS Logic board which has two screen lines to connect the drive board and panel to achieve 120Hz refresh rate.
Now what we can supply is 2560x1440@60Hz, this model use the panel with DP logic board which has only one screen line and consequently support 60Hz.
I apologize for my mistake, I did not get the updating news from our technical department as I was busy with the preparing for the Canton Fair next month.
Attached is the panel data for your reference, hope it is helpful for you to make your decision.
Best regards,
Josh
"
Doesn't sound like our chances of finding the board are so good.


Here's hoping it's laziness in not being able to find a replacement.  Although I am not sure they are talking about the same thing since 120hz has never been possible with these monitors (another hope they are confusing our boards with some other board.)  Moreover, I am not talking to suppliers in South Korea - all Chinese (were the boards apparently originated from.)  I have been in contact with Witech the Catleap manufacturer and they are looking into it (I think they are simply searching other sources just like we are.)  If those boards are truly no longer being manufactured there has to be a similar replacement?  Worst case is if your monitor was repaired they would dump all the internals and put 60hz internals in.  That would suck.  Since there is no direct board replacement any board capable of OC would need all new internals.  As I type I get the sense there was some confusion and this isn't the same board (hope, hope, hope. rolleyes.gif)

Ok I just read that post and it has nothing to do with the Catleap monitor.  It has to do with a completely different set up.  So I am now not believing it has anything to do with the boards we are trying to source.  

 

Here is the monitor it is in reference to:  CLICKY

 

I don't buy these are the same thing since ours are tuned from the factory at 60hz and not rated at 120hz.  Furthermore, we could never get 120hz out of these things.  I may be stubbornly optimistic, but there.

If the video cards weren't limiting the pixel clock, they could most likely do 120hz, or if a DP to dual channel LVDS board were used.

He may be right, but the point still stands that as the Catleaps are not advertised as 120Hz their DVI boards are necessarily different, at least in terms of EDID programming (and potentially more). That itself is reason enough to believe it may still be possible to source the boards Yamakasi was using to convert DVI-LVDS on those earlier variants. I also found out that STMicroelectronics makes a *very* nicely specced chip for displayport to LVDS conversion that would be more than capable of driving these monitors to the required refresh rates (100Hz+), at least for the LVDS variants (or eDP versions that have had their timing controller replaced with the LVDS one). I contacted them to see if they have an evaluation board available for the chip, which could serve as a controller board.

Got my Catleap Q270se today from green-sum. (Dual Link DVI input only)

After some poking around with the old cable for my monitor that was 10ft long and LOOKED like it was Dual Link, I eventually moved everything closer together and used the cable it came with, and it works great now. Also took me a while to realize only one of the two DVI outputs on my Radeon 6950 is dual link-enabled.

It has zero dead pixels, and no noticeable backlight bleed. There are some color uniformity shortcomings in the center of the screen, where it's noticeably more yellowish than the sides, but it probably wouldn't be caught by a regular person. For the price, I can't complain.

It's a 2C version, of course, so no super high input frequencies allowed, but it's hard to complain given the price. I have a PCBank version on the way too that hopefully will arrive soon. We'll see what the innards of that one look like...

If you don't have one of the "supported video cards" listed in DreamSeller's listing, you will not be able to see the BIOS or initial windows startup screen at boot. Nothing will show until the video drivers are loaded. Keep a second monitor handy for if/when you need access to the BIOS.

How curious. My HD 5770 manages to work with this thing in BIOS. However, maybe because I'm running a U2312hm alongside it? Regardless, during POST and during Windows startup, I do see everything as normal. Actually, it "responds faster" than my displayport U2312hm setup. Ie, i see the image on the Catleap before the Dell.

My 4870x2 works just fine during boot/post as well, despite not being on the approved list at all. The Parade documentation (the timing controller in the non-OC models) lists the following:
Quote:
A scaler function is included to provide a full screen display for lower resolution video that may occure during Safe Mode or other DOS modes. Full screen display is supported for input modes such as 640×480, 800×600, and 1024×768.
So it seems like the controller at least should be able to scale just fine from low-resolution modes.
