If it's not strobed then it's definitely not better for gaming than say my strobed 120Hz TN or an old CRT.

What?

because it is not written anywhere that 'a ips or tn or va

it is a 120hz monitor with no 3d vision...

if it was a tn would be 144hz 3d vision


form me it's a VA panel.

I'm not an expert on display panels, but if we're really dealing with a TN panel here, that's rather disappointing for a premium product. Else, I'd strongly consider buying one... planning to go for a 1440p + G-Sync monitor when they start coming out.

Hm, interesting. You guys realize this will be the first official greater than 60 Hz greater than 1080P LCD monitor? 120 Hz + G-Sync at 1440P sounds intriguing, but still a TN panel. redface.gif

Based on the information given already (1ms), I'd bet this monitor includes strobing/LightBoost (currently called ULMB aka Ultra Low Motion Blur in the G-SYNC upgrade kits that several people received, and easily activated by a monitor button).

Most 1ms panels include some form of a strobe backlight.

for you it can be a va/ips panel?

Agreed but the colors on a TN are meh......I'm glad they are finally releasing it. Not much motivation behind it when 95% of PC gamers don't have the gpu power to run such a display properly. And when I say "properly" I mean without cranking all the visual setting down to pull off 1440p at over 100fps. BF4 is the first game to really push my gpu's because of the scaling option. 1440p Ultra 175% scaling is an absolutely breathtaking gaming experience. So excited to upgrade to 4k when more display's come out.

I'll keep the beautiful colors of my 1440p IPS without color shifting, thank you very much. Don't need a placebo effect monitor for my FPS gaming.

Agreed, but those panels won't pass the TestUFO Panning Map Test
Try it on any IPS and most VA panels -- you won't be able to read the street name labels.

Only strobe-backlights (including LightBoost, GSYNC's ULMB, Turbo240, BENQ Blur Reduction) successfully pass this test.
60Hz = baseline
120Hz = 50% less motion blur
strobed = 80-95%+ less motion blur

This is important for people who adore CRT motion clarity, fast panning/strafing/turning with zero motion blur.

I'm betting this monitor that ASUS announced, includes a strobe backlight.

I have a lightboost monitor but correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the strobbing only effective when you can maintain 120fps?
