The previous version of lightboost required an Nvidia gpu and was not AMD compatible (but you could make it work with toasty x's program). The new ulmb feature is part of the gsync board so I don't think AMD cards will be officially supported.

Properly calibrated ... a good TN panel can look almost as good as IPS/PLS ... my 24" Benq 120hz (at right) looked god awful out of the box ... I mean not even tolerable ... but once I calibrated it, it looks darn near as good as my Samsung s27850D (at left). Really the best TN panel I've ever owned....

I expect this new Asus panel to be just as good, if not better, once calibrated.

The picture is only as good as the monitor it is displayed on, but I can see your point. On my screen - BenQ G2220HDA - your BenQ looks a bit saturated.

I have to say I kinda prefer the one on the right...

What am I supposed to be looking for that's superior, for the one on the left?

Of course, at this point we're dealing with translation from your camera taking the picture, the image type you uploaded, and the crappy piece of crap work monitor I'm looking at it with, but still...

Neither is really superior and of course it's a photo of monitors ... but so often you hear about TN panels being horribly "washed out" ... etc. ...; and in fact that Benq really was horrible straight out of the box ... I was actually appalled but then again, I'd been using the PLS screen for good while. But calibration totally transformed it in to one of the best screens I've owned.

And it is a bit over saturated in that shot because I had it on one of the more contrasty settings ...

Super curious to see how this new Asus monitor stacks up ... 1440p with all the snap and no lag will be to die for. I'm always switching over to the Benq when playing and FPS game at all as the PLS screen is just downright handicapping with the lag and what not ... Hawken is going to rock at 1440p ...

And as far as 3D Vision goes, this is something that 1) should have been part of the info released in January, and 2) goes to show that the more technical aspects of the monitor are still not solidified. They're going out of their way to string us along, and I want to know what the hold up is.

Still going for Gold I see....way to not pay attention to anything, or ignore more information because it suits you.

The 3D Vision being 1080P was known at its unveiling at CES, it is far from new or a surprise. The same issue is had with the current 3D Vision displays, just because you refuse to acknowledge it doesn't mean they are hiding anything.

As for "what the hold up is", again, just read the damn information about the panel. Asus has already stated it is due to material shortages, pretty much the same reason many technology products are in shorter supply than previous years. All of the technical specifications are completely solidified, and were before CES, again, something you have to be choosing to ignore.

The one aspect of it, and far from technical, that hasn't been solidified is if it will be Gloss or have an AG coating on it. Asus even held a poll on the matter via their Facebook page; To Gloss or Not to Gloss.

I honest to god have no idea how you can say the things you are saying, and not know these things. The only possible answers are...

A) You have read nothing of the panel and are just ranting to rant and bash on a product you actually know nothing about.

B) You do know these things but are willfully ignoring them, to feel justified in your attempt to bash the product.

"A" is easily remedied by simply reading this thread and the other 400 articles on the display dating back to the CES reveal. "B" is your own personal problem and we can't help you with that, so I would suggest you find another thread.

EDIT:

Oh, and just to make sure I am not ignoring your opening line....

The link I gave you of the quote completely destroys your "Near Vaporware" statement, as we have a confirmed release of it. The original release window was Q2, which June falls within as well. So, connecting the dots...

Asus says Q2, but misses early Q2 due to materials supply. Asus then says "June" for EU and the US more than likely being in that...both statements still putting the display in Q2.

Yup, proper calibration of ANY display can make a huge difference in how it looks. That is why I have a SpyderPro3, I use it to calibrate my PCs and my TVs, the difference is night and day.

People think displays of any kind are ready to go right out of the box, not realizing they are WAY off in their calibration. The exception to this being very expensive pro displays that are calibrated at the factory!

I have 2 IPS monitors...60Hz is not worth it just for color depth...oh god how not worth it.

I have a Samsung 700D 120Hz and I would never ever go back to IPS.

60Hz is annoying now.

Where is all this extra info? Serious question. I've read every post in this thread and you seem to have more info than me.

And really, the June remark by the ASUS rep is what angered me most. It seems unprofessional to officially claim that there's no new information in one breath, and then to hint at a possible release date in the next. If it's June, go on the record and say June.

Even the GOOD ones, like my 2410 need some calibration, Thing pushed red HARD out of the box FFS! stuff like Chrome and OCN had a noticable red tint to the white bits..

Of course my spyder got it all right, Love this thing...

I hope I don't get shot for asking this here, but how do you guys typically calibrate your monitors?
