Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 86

post #851 of 1116
So is this not the LG panel in the catleap and such anymore? Would it be worth me removing the anti glare coating or should I think about returning this one and ordering from Korea?

I was kind of hoping for that panel but I do like how this one can get 75Hz, can't seem to get it working though

As far as I know these accept a 75hz signal, but according to tests it's only physically showing 60

I have made a custom resolution in Nvidia CP to 75hz, when I run a game with vsync enabled the FPS are capped at 75....they wont go over 75.

Doesn't this mean the custom resolution is working at this refresh rate ?

No, that means that the computer is sending a 75hz signla to the monitor and it's accepting it. It's a matter of what is being displayed. Vsync is simply capping frames at what your computer is telling the game that they're sending the monitor.

So how do you know its running at 60hz, I ran that tool on one of the previous pages and it said 75hz, unless I didn't do it right.

This also means Nv software is bogas ? Or maybe I'm not understanding how to read or use the tool.

I couldn't either, and actually took the time to build a Windows Device metadata package for it (including an icon).

You can download the file here, and then dump it in this directory:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceMetadataStore\en-US

Then, go to your "Devices and Printers" folder within your control panel, hit refresh, and you should be good. This isn't a *driver*, but it will at least give you a thumbnail with more accurate metadata other than "Generic PnP"

Alternatively, if anyone cares to author their own metadata package, here is the .ico file.

Cheers

I stopped by Microcenter today, they had one hooked up in the Mac department - just looking at it, it is absolutely a wide-gamut panel. Going to a website like CNN - the banner is intense red, almost pushing toward hot pink. With the 27" Apple display sitting next to it the difference is obvious. I expect it is 8-bit+FRC, like the Dell u2711.

And I hate to say it, but the black levels did indeed seem a bit washed out. I didn't spend a ton of time tweaking, but I did play with it some in both hardware and the Mac calibration tool, and could not get it looking as good as the Apple monitor. Even with pro calibration tools, I'm not sure it could be tweaked to be correct - it just seemed - off - somehow. The AG in itself didn't bother me so much, but I'm used to it from other displays.

Suffice to say, the matte version has absolutely nothing in common with the glossy version, other than resolution and the hardware menus. Completely different animals. They must have used up all the LED panels and bought up Dell overstock/rejects instead. Maybe they will switch again in the future. If someone has the matte version and they are happy with it, that's great - it certainly isn't awful for the price. But it is a letdown compared to the awesomeness of the glossy one. Based on my limited time with it, I would absolutely look to an eBay model if I were shopping around.
______________

All that said - if someone has the matte version and is running a Radeon card with it, check in the CCC panel under color temperature for a "use EDID" checkbox. I'm running a 6870 with an HPzr30w and that little checkbox completely fixes the wide gamut issues. Not sure if it would work the same for the Auria or not. As far as I know there is no equivalent for nVidia.

Well for 400 bucks you can't go wrong, I'm coming from a life of TNs and I'm very happy with it....just need to get a PCB and OC it.

Totally different PCB than in the Catleaps.I don't think the catleap one would fit.
