I am thinking REALLY late March to mid April launch window, and oh boy, is my wallet ready!

I'm hoping that they will hit late March/mid-April, but I don't have the same faith in the speed of the assembly and coating process to believe they are likely to hit that. I really hope they do though, I'm ready to buy today, but knowing they still don't have a few of the core details worked out makes me a bit sad they won't be coming out next week! biggrin.gif

I have no information yet.

I imagine there's a technical reason, such as:
-- The lack of internal monitor bandwidth to accelerate the scan-out at 1440p instead of 1080p. Good 3D Vision requires lowering strobe crosstalk to an absolute minimum, and this is done via accelerated scanout to create longer intervals between refreshes, to let LCD pixels settle (GtG), before strobing the backlight / opening shutter glasses. Accelerated scanout of the LCD requires increased bandwidth, and they might have found that there wasn't enough bandwidth to pull this off. It is also possible that the strobe crosstalk might be acceptable for ULMB 2D, but unacceptable for 3D Vision.
-- 3D Vision games being designed for 1080p for one reason or another.

It'd be lovely to get an official reason, if this is true.

Could care less if it isn't 3D... I want GSYNC and I want ULMB... and I don't mind switching between the two either.

Just release the darn monitor already... the cash is piling up in front of the screen.

I tried 3D a while back and didn't care for it. GSYNC is all I care about, well and Lightboost would be good too.

Same here. All it did was give me a headache. I'm excited for GSync as well. This cash is burning a hole in my pocket so bad that i think i might get 3rd degree burns waiting for this monitor lol. I would at least be satisfied with a pre-order even without a solid date yet.

I enjoy 3D gaming, except for 3D gaming in FPS multiplayer. It's fun in FPS campaigns. I like to conquer the game first in 2D and then it's fun to turn on the 3D vision for a fun run through with effects. It's not for everyone. It bothers one son in my family and the other just doesn't care for it. However it's a nice perk for those who do like it. smile.gif

The lack of 3D @ 1440p is very disappointing. I played L4D on an Asus VG278H while I was still testing it out and it was amazing. After tasting 3D, I simply cannot play the game without it. When I returned the monitor because of terrible backlight non-uniformity, L4D remains unplayed. My concern is 3D @ 1080p on this monitor will look like crap because it is not at the native resolution.

This. 3D tends to make my eyes hurt after 20 minutes or so if im lucky...

GSync is what grabbed my attention...

I'm dreading the AG coating.

Although I might have glanced a post from HARD forums about a response from an ASUS rep that they MIGHT CONSIDER a glossy panel.

Maybe a later release date? Not sure. Then again, there's always vega to De-mattify the planel.
