Not at this time.

Is it possible to have a Gsync monitor and something like lightboost for making the image less blurry? Not for 3D though. I mean like the Eizo FG2421 does.

They have a "improved lightboost" called ULMB, however it is currently G-SYNC or ULMB not both.

Who does?

Which one would you guys prefer? Better light-boost or G-Sync?

I wonder if they could eventually put both in one monitor.

This monitor has both, you just cannot use G-SYNC and ULMB at the same time..

Oh right! Ok. Looking forward to this monitor now then. Anyone have a release date? I hope the colours and black level are a bit better than normal TN's.

The two niggles I have with monitors are black level and colour. I need a good contrast ratio. I bought the Eizo FG4241 but it sadly had it's own issues. But for the most part it's blacks were incredible (VA). Also the colour was better than TN.

I am now on a QNIX overclocked to 96hz. It's good but you do get some ghosting and the black level is about on par to a TN (being almost the same tech and all).

I'm looking, like most of us, for something better. It's this or another FG2421.

No release date on it, at this rate I am guessing the day they announce a release date is the day they start shipping, which is pretty common.

As for the panel itself, it is a new high end TN that was designed for this application. According to Asus it is a true 8-bit TN, compared to the normal 6-bit TN that every other TN display uses. Nav from Digital Storm, in this thread, said it was pretty nice looking. Others in the industry have said it looks close to IPS and/or VA panel in color reproduction, basically that it looks nothing like the average TN.

Now, as for G-Sync or ULMB; as the others have said it is one or the other right now. I believe Nvidia said they would eventually like to see BOTH work at the same time, but that just isn't the case. Personal preference, if the game you are playing can maintain 100+ FPS, then use ULMB. If you are dropping below that, use G-Sync.

I wonder if it's possible to set automatic software profiles for different games. With BF4 multiplayer I would definitely like to use ULBM but something like Metro:Last Light would benefit from G-Sync.
