Maxwell is not the same jump as prior architecture changes, using past as prologue is not as likely to be the case this time.

In any event, we'll know for ourselves in a week I'm betting. GTC keynote should be entertaining.

And I'm saying I don't think they'll hit 30% improved efficiency over 780 Ti with a 7B transistor 2014 Maxwell chip.

I would much rather have this monitor be 60hz ips instead. With the same resolution and gsync

I don't get this. What's the point of G-sync if the monitor would be mediocre for gaming anyway?

Because it's still better than not having G-Sync.

There will be G-Sync IPS displays.

But who in their right mind would use a 60Hz IPS for gaming?

Lots of people do. You can knock their logic all you want, but it's hardly uncommon. Many people get IPS for reasons other than gaming, and then choose to still use it for gaming despite the downsides. You will find people who say that they will only game on an IPS, in fact.

That's a shame. Ten years ago we had CRT screens with low persistence and high refresh rates. And now people settle for monitors that have extremely poor motion reproduction.

And you settle for screens that have extremely poor color reproduction, is the response.

There are always tradeoffs, which at this point are usually chosen by nothing more than personal preference. You may have sensitivity to motion artifacts, I have a sensitivity to frame tearing, others may have a sensitivity to color banding.

No display is perfect, and treating those other than what you prefer as an unconscionable degradation helps no one.

June is just way to far away for this monitor.

I really can't wait to try it with my 780ti (and future sli) build.

Its rather amazing how one product can keep people going without actually talking about the product most of the time ... lol
