The blur is still bad, but it's not as bad as it is at 60hz. But for the blur, this monitor is outstanding. I also paid $350 for it.

At some point, I hope I can replace it in good conscience with whatever ASUS releases.

The Koreans kind of fall into that "built to do so" category. While not all of them are marketed as OC capable, the boards they are using in them are capable; as you have said.

Regarding Nvidia Geforce GTX 800 series.

 

"The Taiwanese partner manufacturer NVIDIA now states to SweClockers that it will be some time before Nvidia can introduce graphics processors with the architecture Maxwell 20 nanometers. At best, an occasional model will appear towards the end of the year, but more likely is that it will take until well into 2015. A shift from 28 to 20 nanometers is considered necessary for Nvidia to use Maxwell in the higher performance classes. This is especially true for the successors to the GK110, which is the basis for the Geforce GTX 780, GTX 780 Ti, Titanium and Titanium Black. The 20 nanometer delay may also explain why the first graphics card with architecture Maxwell does not present a new series, but now play along with generation Kepler in the existing 700 series."

So as we all suspected, Nvidia components are delayed. I think AMD kicked their as and Nvidia panicked and hence messed up launch dates etc. So, regarding the 6 GB versions of the 780 / 780 Ti, that is a direct response to AMD and the demand for higher memory capacity now. Someone did mention that the 6 GB version might be a disguise for delayed 800 series and who ever you are, here is your proof.

Meaning there is no reason for me to wait since the 780 Ti 6 GB will be the top of the line this year and I am only a few months away from getting the SLI.

Thank god i got my 780 and didn't play the waiting game. I've already expected them not to release it aorund march, lol (while last eta had been mid year).

While i still want a 6 GB version.

An update today from JJ regarding the release timeframe of the PG278Q and currently dismissing the Q3 rumor.

Still under last stages of design and development and our target for release is still sometime in Q2. Once we have more specific information to release we will do so.

IMO, they should release it now w/o a G-sync kit for less and sell the G-sync kit for this monitor when it's finally ready.
post #2416 of 8206
A G-Sync retrofit is not exactly trivial. It's not that bad, but it's not for the average consumer. Far, far better for them to just wait the extra month or two until it's ready, especially since they don't have a "non-G-Sync" controller for this model. They can't just invent one on the spot.

Hm, I guess. I just want a 1440p 120Hz strobed monitor, I'm not interested in G-sync or paying extra for it when I'll never use it. Hopefully we'll see a cheaper, non G-sync swift for less from ASUS or a different manufacturer.
post #2418 of 8206
I'm not so sure you'll never use it. What graphics hardware are you planning on using to drive 1440p 120Hz, reliably enough to the point where you don't have any drops below 120Hz that would disrupt the ULMB mode? What resolution and refresh rate are you currently using?

Look, I don't want to start a debate here. What I have now is excessive for what I'm doing now (GTX 780 running 1080p 120Hz strobed) as I rarely play graphics heavy games (I mainly play CSGO, CSS, and LoL) and when I play GFX heavy games they're usually SP and run smooth enough for me, if not, I have no issues lowering settings to get the game to run smoother. Point is, G-sync is useless for me, mainly because it cannot be used with lightboost/ULMB.
post #2420 of 8206
Here's my point, though:

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1036

A single 780 will struggle to get up to 120 Hz on a 1440p. You won't be *able* to run this monitor with ULMB and have the kind of experience you're wanting due to the resolution increase - not unless you're willing to sacrifice a lot of eye candy that you're currently enjoying. 1440 is a LOT more pixels, and you take a pretty massive hit to go up to it. And at anything less than rock-solid 120+ FPS, so that no matter what you do the framerate never dips below 120, G-Sync will be a better option than ULMB. You will get a smoother experience, tear-free, stutter-free, with no increase to input lag. Lightboost/ULMB doesn't work when framerate is different from the strobe frequency. Your rig simply will not be able to run ULMB anyway.

The true triumph will be when they get the display strobe to also be variable, and controlled by G-Sync too. It's not there yet, but I expect it will be. And damn, will that be some good times. Can't wait.

But in the meantime, do not be so quick to write off G-Sync. From every firsthand account, it makes a more significant improvement in the visual experience than lightboost ever came close to doing. Do not dismiss it so blithely.
