[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1052

post #10511 of 25888
Playing competitively and playing professionally are two different things.

These monitors are perfectly fine for competitive gaming.
I honestly do not know anyone who plays professionally (i.e. they are sponsored and get paid for it).
I do know plenty of people who play competitive BF (i.e play in clans and are in various ladders, I've even been on a #1 team in 1942 myself-ancient times) .

I don't think the majority of people who play competitive BF really care about a 1ms vs sub 8ms display. You are always gonna have a "johnny pro gamer" who thinks they are a "pro" and "needs" a 144mhz <1ms display, and honestly if your getting paid to do this and are a pro you should probably have one, however, every one of the ahem... "pro" gamers I have ever seen does not.tongue.gif this is true of BF as really it's netcode and other factors are gonna make that negligible.

As I said, it really won't matter much for most of the gamers, but I'd still get a faster panel if I were a competitive FPS gamer. I mean there is a rather big difference between Qnix and my 2ms Syncmaster for example (for my eye anyway). Telling someone that 8ms vs 1 or 2 ms does not make a difference is like saying that 120hz doesn't make a difference over 60hz. And like I said, I personally love the monitor and it's overall the best monitor I've ever had, but I've had better gaming monitors for sure and I can tell the difference quite easily. Just like you can tell the difference between 120hz and 60hz.

Now I just need to open the monitor and put something below the panel as it sits couple pixels too low in the bezel and the picture is cut a little bit. Not bothering me enough to make me open the monitor, but once I can find a decent stand that doesn't cost a fortune I shall do it at the same time. So can anyone recommend a good VESA mounted stand for this monitors? It should be a regular stand that sits on the table and should have a height and tilt adjustment.

Yeah, this is the very first time I'm buying a TOTL graphics card. I'm feeling that the computational power of single GPU's is finally able to pretty much run anything at 1440p at high settings, with > 60 fps. I feel that, for the current gaming dogma (high res, single monitor, no 3D) these cards are everything we need. Something has to change pretty drastically in order to need better GPU's.

I'm coming from the ati HD6870, which barely managed 40fps on high with BF3. I actually bought the R9 280X, and found out this card is everything you need for full hd gaming, but won't get you passed 40 fps running 1440p with demanding games. I figured, why the heck would I spend ~ €270 on something that's already lacking! The R9 290X also didn't quite catch my interest, since I would need an active displayport adapter for my third screen. The adapter + the 290X was coming dangerously close to the GTX 780 in terms of price, so I just went for easymode nvidia.

The GTX 660ti will run most games just fine on 1440p. I'm even able to run skyrim + 2K textures on 1440p with the HD6870 (I do get bad frame drops though). If you're a competitive BF3-BF4 player, and you want to play on high, you will need something better. But you probably already know ALL of this.
I have considered the r9 290 since the price is so good. But your comment of easymode nvidia sums it up for me. Had a 7950 and it just seems like a lot more hoops to oc. 780 seems like it has a ton of power. Hopefully I can gather the funds. I will probably go used if I can find one.

I have a syncmaster as well, and it indeed feels a bit lighter. But the difference between 60hz and 120 hz is way, way bigger. Not necessarily in response time, but the fluidity makes such a big difference (if you actually generate 120 fps). I guess it all comes back to what you're planning to do with the monitor. The lower response time would definitely be beneficial for the hand eye coordination. But, even with the syncmaster I'm quite awful at that redface.gif

At 60hz the colors are completely solid throughout as they should be.



60hz:



120hz:
I have the exact same issue with my Qnix, is this considered a normal behavior with this monitor ?

I don't mind having darker screen, but losing consistency is a bummer...
post #10518 of 25888
From tests taken the 120hz vs true 120hz witb lightboos is about 20% I prefer a 20 loss for more screen real estate and a more professional panel vs a washed out tn panel my friend has the 278H and I brought my xstar over we didnt see to much of a diff. So hes returning hia and getting a qnix. He lives on bf3 and bf4

Just chiming in thats all not saying ones better than the other.

Ok so its def a color dif all 4 others show the same color set gonna try calibrating if not ill return it my gloss obe is still sharper than the tempered lol its noticeable so im still betting matte.

Linus (yes I'm quoting youtube benchmarkers, I think he's quite good) actually tested the R9 290X watercooled, and it did surpass the GTX 780 on air. I guess you could watercool the R9 290X, with a cheap cooler, and go slightly over the cheapest GTX780's price. I'd still go with the GTX 780 though. If I pay premium, I want the premium drivers & UI!
I've actually had quite few problems with the ati drivers. But the interface is just ridiculous. I actually wasn't able to press the freaking apply button for multiple months!

I think it's fairly normal yeah. I haven't paid much attention to the inconsistency, but it is a bit too dark for me. I actually like 96hz a lot. I actually like 96hz more than 60hz, but that's probably just because I calibrated it at 60hz redface.gif
