FFXIV player here, as well. smile.gif

I'm an ex-FF XIV ARR player, if that counts. I say ex because I'll probably get back into it again at some point ^_^;;; Would definitely be a lot more fun to play it at 1440p on a 27" screen, instead of my current 21.5" displays biggrin.gif

I read somewhere (possibly a few pages back) that even though it's going to retail for $799, it won't actually convert from that to £'s, e.g. £480 for us here in the UK. What are the chances that this will retail here for £799?

Awesome another FFXIV player. As for resizing the UI have you tried using CTRL+Home? It cycles through 3 sizes on the element you have selected at the time. I play at 1440 and enlarged a couple elements but kept the rest their original size. You can resize anything that you can drag around when modifying your HUD.

Oh yeah I used ctr+home and up sized all the huds but it still falls short at up sizing all the menus and since I craft items for everyone for a job it gets too small for me use at high res. redface.gif

Probably not because you're running off DP 1.2.

While DP is limited at WQHD @ 120Hz I don't know how near to the clock ceiling that is, but I'm sure theres' enough margin to allow that.

NEWS.

ASUS ROG Nordic dropped a reply regarding the "release" of the monitor and it states as follow: "The current estimation for the first shipment is in June" - I have included a translated version from the debate group over at www.sweclockers.com
I cannot locate the exact message, but it would be in line with some prior info posted here a while back. 

So, with this info at hand, there is now roughly 3 months to go before we actually start seeing people getting there hands on one and reviews. I will have more than enough time to get my photo editing monitor and for that I am considering Samsung S27A850D, the price for this monitor has dropped a bit and it is also a 27" WQHD (PLS) panel. 

So there you go, happy to contribute ;)

But be aware that it won't do anything to help with the lack of fluidity inherent to low frame rates. Nor will it address the heavy motion blurring. An average of 60fps on a sample and hold display translates to an average of 16.7 milliseconds of motion blur. which is a lot. One way to represent yourself what it looks like is panning in a first person shooter at 1000 pixel per second. In that situation at 60fps you would get approximately 16 pixels of blurring.

That is very dissapointing. If they are gonna delay it that long, they may as well make it 100% glossy biggrin.gif

That's fantastic. Just enough time to save money for two 880's and the Swift monitor! Hellz yeah!

I currently have a Samsung S27850D and love it. It sits dual screen next to a Benq XL2420T 120hz which I'm hoping the new Asus will best. I love the Benq though, that's for sure. Calibrated properly it looks damn near as good as my S27850D and is otherwise perfect (no BLB, etc.)

I happened to get one of the "golden" S27850D's with absolutely ZERO backlight bleed and it's pretty much the most gorgeous screen I've ever owned. I use it for imaging work (visual design), photo stuff, video work and also any game that really benefits from it and that doesn't need lightning fast response times (Dragon Age Origins, Dragon Age 2, Skrim, etc.) are exclusively played on the Sammy 1440p while all my FPS get play time on the Benq.

That's one reason I'm so stoked about this new Asus 1440p monitor ... will be awesome to play FPS games on a 1440 screen that is just as fast as my Benq. I find FPS games totally impossible to be competitive with when using the 1440p Samsung ... just not fast enough and WAY too much lag. So hopefully, the Asus Swift will bridge the gap between my Benq and the Sammy and then I can just put the Benq back in the box for disaster recovery (cause it's so bad ass that no way would I sell it).

Thanks for the info on release date ... saving my pennies.

;-)
