Regarding the WQHD 27 inch displays and "2b" models

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, I've just started researching those 27 inch WQHD monitors today and I have swallowed A LOT of information.

I'll make my stance simple and hope that someone can help me here. From everything I read on this forum today, it seems there's a vast amount of helpful people here with extensive knowledge of these monitors.

Basically, I am looking to purchase(as early as tomorrow) one of these monitors.

Ideally, I'm looking for a 27 inch 2560x1440 that can handle 120hz.

From what I've read, there seems to be a specific model(2b?) that is out(or coming out?) that handles 120hz? It seem all the other models weren't able to do that.

Is this THE monitor to get out of all of the similar kinds?

Lastly, I read something that said you shouldn't have an NVIDIA card if you want to do 120hz. I currently use the GTX 570 -- am I going to be unable to do 120hz?

I appreciate any help at clarification.

Cheers.

You're not going to be able to do 120 FPS in games with that GPU. You need more horsepower for that, more likely GTX 670 SLI minimum. However, SLI is limited to 100hz due to SLI briddge physical limitations (if you believe NV tech support) or more likely, driver limitations.

Alternatively, if you go with Crossfire, you need to use modded catalyst drivers to hit 120 hz in games, which means you have trouble with video playback due to unsigned drivers.

You also need to make sure you have a high quality DVI-D cable. The cable that comes with the catleap is reported to give out at around 110 hz.

I figure I probably won't be able to maintain 120fps, but wouldn't I at least see a benefit as long as I'm getting over 60fps? I'm not ready to upgrade my GPU yet, so if there's no benefit for me unless I'm maintaining 120hz, then I'll abandon my stance on the 120hz.

If it ends up being that way, then I'll have to rephrase my original question.

So -- is there at least some benefit in having a 120hz monitor in my situation?

Thanks!

To answer your question
2b are from February , They appear to be a Error Batch, Found about by accident or Trial & Error
They are no longer being Made


There is a website that CLAIMS that they are going to recreate them
I believe that this is a scam
" Yeah, Yeah" I saw the YouTube video
I still say it is a Scam, they guarantee nothing & the sell date keeps being pushed back
But if they do start to sell them, Please be the first to send money and prove me wrong

So between the two comments left so far, it's looking like a regular 60hz monitor might be best for me.

I actually forgot about one of my biggest requirements -- wall mountable. Do most of these 27 inch panels have this capability, or only a specific few?

Thanks again.

All those korean monitors are VESA compliant, if you are planning to wall mount your monitor then DON'T get the Yamakasi Catleap because it would require you to remove the back panel in order to wall mount the monitor.

Crossover monitors have the best build quality and the same panel; are made of metal. Probably best to go for one of them.

Crossovers do have the best case but at least when I looked they were also I little more expensive than the Catleaps and Shimians. I purchased a Shimian just because I wanted to save a couple bucks and I happy enough with stand... Nothing impressive but it works.

So it sounds like if I want to wall mount, I would ideally get a Shimian or a Crossover?

On the topic of my original post -- are any of those models able to get higher than 60hz? I have read a bit about some people overclocking certain models.

Thanks!
