Why can't we have a 1440p with 24 inch?
Reasons are simple..

For FPS gaming a 24' is enough. (for me, owning a 22' right now)
27' too much for my liking.
1440p + competitive gaming is not really my type of reso.
24' with 1080p is more than fine.
27' with 1080p has rather bad pixel density.
24' with 1440p even better density.
Playing 1440p might be too demanding for now.

Why do i want a 1440p with a 24' than?
Well.. being future proof.

I'd buy a monitor and play my comp stuff comfy at my lovely resos while having 1440p as a backup for the future.
Afterall you buy a monitor to last.

The best option is a Benq XL2420G though having "only" 1080p.

Question: Legit brainstorm or not?

I agree with your brain storming. 24 inch when you are sitting right in front of the monitor is a ideal size. It also cuts down colour shift due to a smaller size screen. 27 inch has more colour shift and maybe gamma shift at least on ips. Also you get less performance so i personally would love to see a 24 inch monitor at 1440 p

Makes sense. But there is a catch. LCD monitors only look nice in their native resolution.
So 1080p on a 1440p screen is not recommended. The scaling will be ugly.

Nearly everything you have said is completely a personal matter, and isn't shared universally.

As for 1440P gaming, we have powerful enough hardware to handle that just fine. My two 7970s easily keep over 60 FPS, well up into the 100+ range. 780 Tis in SLI easily do it as well, and anyone looking at an $800 gaming display is already going to have premium hardware.

Yep, a single r9 290 runs all games @ 1440p just fine. I get around 96fps in everything as long as i turn aa off. 24 inch is to small for 1440p as well without doubt.

VA is slower than PLS/IPS. And TN is faster than all three other tech.

I was under the impression it was TN, VA, IPS/PLS. Turns out VA is just as bad as IPS in terms of response time.

I know awhile back they were talking about S-VA and M-VA panels being much better than standard VA in terms of response time, looks like that didn't work out as well in real life as it did on paper.

The Eizo FG2421 is really the only good VA for gaming, and only with the "240Hz mode" which is apparently about as clear as a TN with 70%LB.

Kudos to you.
Well, was just a brainage. Wasn't sure bout the scaling.

So actually 1080p on 24' is just fine as i take it.
Seems it will be the BenQ upon release. While i have to admit that ROG Swift is effin sexy.

Can't wait to see review comparisons between both. Right now BenQ is a FPS gamers choice and i wonder about the ROGs performance.
Though many serious FPS gamers might be scared away by the 27' size, including me.

When I went and did research, even a GTX 770 can handle 1440p just fine. One thing to watch on benchmarks is the AA level, a lot of the 1440p benchmarks have AA cranked up to its highest level

The biggest thing to keep in mind is you can crank AA down a lot from 1080p and still have it look absolutely amazing, as the higher resolution means AA isnt as essential (and techniques like FXAA dont blur the image anywhere near as much)
