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)
I'm on a gtx780ti and even at 1280x960 with all settings on low, I can't get crysis3 to not dip below 120fps. Which every time causes a massive stutter.

Everyone here seems way to optimistic about which frame rates they will be able to get with modern games.

HardOCP says otherwise, As does Anandtech and Tomshardware


Sounds like CPU binding there in your case

CPU?

Also, Crysis 3 has some spots where it's terribly optimized and even the highest of end rigs will dip pretty far.

Yes I believe it's an optimization issue. My fps sits at around 200 if uncapped. But pretty much all the time it dips.

Crysis 3 isn't that greatly optimized, and there are several major dips in performance in the game. The same thing can be said about a lot of AAA titles. A very large portion of AAA title budget is in marketing, and I find that complete optimization isn't really on the table for them.

I typically see better optimization out of smaller games than big major block busters.

Yes I fear optimization became too time consuming and complex for game studios. So I take that into account when thinking about performance.

It's not the avg fps that matter (unless you are in G-Sync mode) but the min fps.

I'm using an Asus VG278HE, so honestly is it worth it to go for this?.

It all depends on which games you play and which hardware you have or plan to acquire.

Also do you use the lightboost hack?
If you are not bothered by motion blur and you don't use or like strobbed backlights,
then you don't need to have your fps always above your refresh rate.
Because the Rog swift will have a variable refresh mode that will allow a fluctuating framerate to feel decently smooth.

Yeah 1440p with no aa is still vastly superior to 1080p with full aa. Probably get around the same frames per second in both scenarios generally as well.
