If you are on this forum and in this tread and you say "feature I wouldn't use" then that is like cursing in a Church. You obviously do not understand what G-sync is doing for the gamers. It is the single most important graphical hardware component and solution in decades. 3D isn't it, g-sync is. 3D is only going to work if the upcoming Valve or Oculus products get it right, and that will eliminate the need for surround vision because it will be built in, and I am sure that 2D vision will work as well with surround in them products.

Hey, I'm not trying to argue here, I'm just asking a question. I don't want to use G-Sync because I find lightboost to be more useful and tearing really just doesn't bother me, hence the question: "Does anyone know if they'll do a version without G-Sync?"

Well, if lightboost is what you are looking for, then try this. Maybe it will work on the monitor you have now.

There really is no reason why Asus can't release a non-gsync version of this monitor as well.

Even without gsync, this monitor has features a lot of users would like.

But it's not 120Hz and doesn't have lightboost. If I wanted a cheap 1440p I'd just go with a Korean panel. I want 1440p 120Hz strobed, which is why I asked if there was going to be a cheaper version without G-Sync. If not, maybe BenQ will get it right and get my money again.

Exactly, shame we don't know if they'll do this or not. Waiting sucks.

WQHD @ 120-140Hz is still new stuff, perhaps Q3-Q4 will have better options for this.

You need a GSYNC enabled monitor though for Lightboost 2.0, aka ULMB. Maybe they will make a non GSYNC version of this monitor, it most likely would come with 3D capability so the Lightboost hack could work.

ULMB has a 85 Hz setting, so all you would need is a solid 85 frames or more, which I imagine would be a feat in Surround.
