I am guessing it will retail for over $700, so you'll have to do some number crunching to see if it will be worth it at a dollar to performance ratio.

If you wait for new cards, you'll likely be waiting until 2014 so it's a matter of how quickly you want to do some higher framerate gaming.

Whats your FPS in games?

BF3: 50-140 fps with most things on ultra (this is the worst, since the game is so highly CPU dependent, GPU usage isn't even maxed out)
Far Cry 3: 80-150 fps, all highest
BioShock Infinite: 100-130 fps, all mostly highest
Max Payne 3: 100-140 fps, all highest

These are the more modern games I have been playing recently. Also being stuck on the 320.xx drivers due to the Korean panel bug in 326.xx, there are probably more improvements that will come about once the 326.xx WHQL are released.

I'm running 326.41 and it's been working fine

If your card has 2 DVI-D (dual link) or DVI-I (dual link) - or 1 of each - it will work.

"DVI Output : Yes x 1 (DVI-I), Yes x 1 (DVI-D)"

Sweet, thank you!

HI, I forgot to put up the image as required:

post #5538 of 25905
Just wanted to say that I received my Qnix 2710 glossy from green-sum and am extremely satisfied. I am coming from my Crossover 27Q which after about 11 months got a red line through the panel.

OC'd straight to 120hz with no problems and omg so much smoother!!! First time ever seeing 120hz for myself, it'll be weird coming into work next week, the mouse will feel so laggy! tongue.gif Haven't tried any games just yet.
One issue was the colour accuracy at 120hz, but I used the 120hz icc posted by dascth from a matte monitor (tried about 10 others, yours looked the best - thanks man! Wish you had a glossy though! tongue.gif) except I'm at ~18 clicks from min for brightness, not 12 as suggested. Also one issue with 120 is the top right of the screen is a little dimmer than the rest of the screen - not sure what to think of this, but it's not really bothering me.

0 Dead/stuck pixels, and very minor BLB in the top right and panel squeeze bot mid that I have since rubbed out. Price was 280USD + an unfortunate $53 duties from DHL... (I live in Toronto).

Now for the good stuff:

Comparison vs Crossover 27Q:

- First thing I noticed was how light the Qnix was... it's very light compared to my Crossover (though my Crossover has the Pivot stand) - maybe twice as light in fact!
- My Crossover had 2 dead pixels and the BLB was a little worse than this Qnix, so I'm really happy that I got a good egg this time around. I got my Crossover from bigclothcraft and even had to return it because the first one had a lot of issues and a giant purple blob in the middle of the screen.. Much better this time around.
- Qnix is running @ 120hz!! That alone justifies the price-point, especially with Crossovers going for $100 more!
- The Qnix stand I found to be okay but it'll be annoying that I have to take the monitor apart to remove the neck to put my vesa pivot stand on which I will steal from the Crossover.

Question: Can these monitors do LightBoost or something similar? Also, 96hz does look better than 120hz in terms of pictures and videos; I would prefer to just keep it at 120hz but is there any updates on whether or not 120hz is more deteriorating to the pcb than 96?


Cheers,

My post on calibration is http://www.overclock.net/t/1397938/my-spyder4elite-monitor-calibrator-loan-thread/160 scroll down a bit and you'll see it.

See if that helps fix your reddish hue problem.

Edit: the i1 display pro (xrite photo/display iirc) should be used with "LCD Adaptive HiRes" mode, not "LCD generic".

Ok, so I followed your settings exactly but I kept white point to as measured. All I can say is I wish I had done this earlier. I could probably debezel the monitor entirely, hang it on a wall and pass it off as a poster picture. Simply amazing.

Thanks and repped thumb.gif

Also, to everyone who was checking to see 120Hz on the blurbusters browser test, turns out you have to detach all other monitors in order for it to work. Otherwise, the composition rate of Windows stays at 60Hz and reports the wrong refresh rate to the browser even if it's running on a 120Hz monitor.

Also, although I haven't tested this, running multiple 120Hz monitors in a multi-monitor setup will probably show 120Hz in the blur busters test since the composition rate will be the same for all three monitors.
