[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 842

post #8411 of 25922
I have a new problem:

After a few hours of use my Windows 7 freezes at about twice a minute for 6-7 seconds - even the mouse pointer is not usable.
What is that? Does anyone had this before?
I will try the new nvidia driver (from today, 2013/10/21) and I will stop all services and processes one after another.

What I changed since the Qnix is plugged in: Nvidia driver, Intel INF update, Firefox 24, the patch for higher frame rates, CRU config.

Have you tried going to the left and the right side of your main monitor to get it to the 2nd monitor? Like just cos your monitor is on the left side doesn't mean it will be to the left side of the main screen with the mouse to get to it, try right side. Told you it was dumb lol.

Gave me a huge laugh guys. Good to know it worked anyways.

Could i just use the Spyder 3 for the colors and do the brightness by hand??
How cheap exactly? The darkening is not brightness loss as much as it is gamma shift. The actual brightness loss is less than a click of brightness, something not really noticeable. Calibrating for brightness (white luminance) is a bad idea as it will block out brighter colors and keep the same black level, reducing the contrast ratio (difference between brightest white and darkest black).

If it's not that cheap compared to a Spyder4Express, save your money, take the time to learn about color calibration (if you opt for the basic packages where it's recommended to use 3rd-party software), then buy a colorimeter. Alternatively, the basic software is enough to get you by for the first calibration but I wouldn't count on its accuracy too much.

Further testing of the panel itself has shown that despite the GPU and software side of things was working as intended (sending 120hz to the monitor) the monitor itself was not in fact displaying 120fps, but rather 60 fps and skipping every other frame.

So pardon my doubt on their results. I until someone captures a valid test (a la http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping), then I will treat any claims of overclocking with a healthy dose of skepticism. Especially since that particular mode of failure (frameskipping of multi-inputs at >60hz signals) is well known, well-documented and very common.

I did notice that the CrossOver Black Tune 2755 thread has some claims of overclocking as well - I intend to investigate that further as one of the members actually has a multi-input "overclocked" monitor - as of now, I will treat that as an unconfirmed report.

The 2735 or 2755 is on its way to being confirmed as frameskipping. I'll link you when I know.

I want the DisplayPort version, as much as I am a DVI+Windows guy, it'd be nice to hook up my work Mac to it. I wish I knew the DP version existed when I bought it..

But it seems like no one can buy the glossy version nowadays? Whenever I try to buy (last time from dream-seller, this time from accessorieswhole), they tell me that there's a shortage, and to try to switch me to matte. Why are their auctions still up? Other people experience this too, right?

This guy even tried getting me to buy a different monitor/panel, but I want the PLS one. Gotta have dat 120Hz (although I probably won't be getting it with the Mac mDP.. 120Hz with only Windows DVI will be fine)

Last time, I said I'd just wait, and it shipped in like 2 days. Not sure if the same thing will happen this time. Should I switch to matte or call his bluff? Honestly, I still want glossy, but my past 10 monitors have been matte and they were fine. I think glossy has an extra punch to it.

I just ordered a glossy X-Star this morning from dream-seller and didn't hear anything about it being out of stock. Maybe I got lucky, or have some bad news coming.

Gsync modules come out next month, Nvidia said it will cost about $79, and some monitors will support a manual install of it as long as you own a modern Nvidia GPU. Anyone here from OCN who owns a QNIX OC'd care to try this mod out and risk the $79 investment?

because if it works out... victory will be mine xD 1440p 108hz with gsync... /drool

I thought it was only compatible on 1080p 120 Hz native monitors? headscratch.gif



Just no way I'm going back to 1080p now that I've seen 1440.

EDIT - Update

Eventually for "Select' monitors and various resolutions.

Q: What are the resolutions of G-SYNC monitors?
A: NVIDIA G-SYNC enabled monitors will be available in a variety of resolutions from 1920x1080, to 2560x1440 to 4Kx2K. The ASUS VG248QE NVIDIA G-SYNC enabled monitor has a max resolution of 1920x1080.
Quote:
Q: What display companies are planning on introducing G-SYNC monitors?
A: Many of the industry’s leading monitor manufacturers have already included G-SYNC in their product roadmaps for 2014. Among the first planning to roll out the technology are ASUS, BenQ, Phillips and ViewSonic.

It's safe to say you can tack on $175 to current monitor prices in addition to their current cost when they come enabled.
Quote:
Q: How much more does G-SYNC add to the cost of a monitor?
A: The NVIDIA G-SYNC Do-it-yourself kit will cost approximately $175.

Doesn't work for all games.
Quote:
Q: Does NVIDIA G-SYNC work for all games?
A: NVIDIA G-SYNC works with all games. However, we have found some games that do not behave well and for those games we recommend that users take advantage of our control panel’s ability to disable G-SYNC per game. Games that NVIDIA discovers that have trouble with G-SYNC will be disabled by default in our driver.

The G-Sync Kit is only for specific monitor you can add on.
Quote:
Q: When will I be able to purchase this?
A: The NVIDIA G-SYNC Do-it-yourself kits for the ASUS VG248QE monitor will be available for purchase later this year. We will have more information to come on how and when to get G-SYNC enabled monitors in the future.

SO it's not for the Korean monitors. Here's the link of FAQ's - http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/g-sync/faq

Does anyone know how the Qnix matte monitors compare to other monitors' matte finishes? Like is the Qnix's light, or slight, or what?

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has tried using a DVI-D dual link to HDMI cable to plug it into a laptop? My friends and I each bought one and two of them are using laptops: Lenovo Y570 and Lenovo Y580 but when they plug it in, it does not display at all. Then they go into Window's Screen Resolution, they try to change the settings but when they try to save, it says "Unable to save display settings". Does anyone know what the problem is?

DL-DVI is incompatible with HDMI. You may be able to run it at a lower refresh rate than 60hz; try 40hz.

Ordered a pixel perfect Qnix from dream-seller (non-pixel perfect was only £10 less so thought why not). I'm in the UK, does it come with a power adapter or do I need to get one?
