Yes, I agree.

However, from what I've read in this thread, all the most noticeable sellers are experience same shortage of stock lately so, good luck.

Of course, this doesn't excuse their wrong doing and false advertising, and you should say it in your feedback. imo.

I did a quick search but I couldn't find the information I was looking for: what are peoples' experiences with running these monitors @ 1080p and overclocking? Are higher overclocks achievable with reduced resolution? Thanks.

Why you would get a 1440p monitor to play @1080p is something that escapes me...
However, I can tell you how the games look like when I first load them on my QNIX and coming from a 1080p res. The image seams just like when I scale the games down to 720p on my ASUS 1080p monitor. Exact same feel of blurry and awkward... is hard to describe... sorry. Same thing with monitor overclocked or not. And for me anyways, overclocking isn't affected by resolution: stable 110Hz no matter what. @ 120Hz flickers

Im about to pull the trigger on this X Star going for 289. Is this the correct one to get if i want to try and overclock i dont want to get stuck with the one that has input lag(hdmi dp version) i believe this is the correct DVI version. Anything else i should know about this monitor before i buy it thanks alot.

I only use triple monitors for racing games. 95% of the time I'm concentrated on my center display. Right now, I'm running a G-Sync center with 70Hz sides. I don't have time to appreciate the difference in motion performance between the displays when I'm trying to keep the car on the track going 100mph through a corner side-by-side with another racer.

If I step up to 27" I would likely buy a 1080p G-Sync center and go with Korean side displays because of their overclocking ability. In general, I agree running monitors at their non-native resolutions is silly, but for my side displays I'd rather go with $300 27" Korean displays @ 1080p @ 120Hz than standard $300 27" 1080p @ 60Hz displays.

Anyways, just to confirm: you experienced no difference in overclocking ability going from 1440p to 1080p on your Korean display? Thanks. thumb.gif

Yes, they are. The moment I add higher refresh rates @ 1440p, they are available for 1080p as well. The monitor lacks a scaler so the graphics card will be responsible for upscaling the image back to 1440p and that means you're still sending a 1440p signal to the monitor. Same overclock limits apply and all selecting a lower resolution does is get the graphics card to only render at a lower resolution.

Thanks for the response. Can you get higher overclocks though compared to 1440p or just the same clocks?

I'm aware I would have to let the GPU do the scaling. That's what I'd like to do. Render in 1080p and scale to 1440p for the performance advantage.

Yes that's the correct one to buy and will overclock.

Hey guys, just got my display today, and I am loving it. A small amount of light bleed from the bottom 2 corners, but its still miles better than my Acer 3d monitor.
