During the time shortly after launch where you can't push 1440p@120hz you have g-sync to make gameplay generally much smoother (according to most everyone who's used it) than it has been until now. Then in another gpu cycle or two you're able to smash pretty much any 6 mo-year old game.

(I'm very much looking forward to witcher 3 (and this monitor biggrin.gif))
You're right as well. And there are many old games that will be a total blast as soon as the display is available. Games like Quake and Counter Strike and many others. Even some recent games.
And there is a good chance that you might be able to aim for 60fps avg@1440p in the Witcher 3 once the game is optimized and at the condition you have a very high-end system and you are smart about which graphical options you set up.

It just seems to me that some people are overly optimistic about what the future hold in regards of being able to run games decently on this monitor.

Edit: I actually red "6 year old game" instead of "6 mo-year old game" in your comment.
I'm sorry but it will take several years after the release before you can run the game at 120Hz. Not 6 months.
Look, I have a 4770k with a 780ti and I can't even get Skyrim to run at 60fps @ 1920x1080 without stutter inducing drops. And that game isn't even visually impressive.

I must say, props to ASUS for the 1400p 3D Vision announcement. I'm willing to cut some slack on IQ just to get 1440p 3D.

I have 2 780 Tis and I'm playing on 1440p right now. BF4 on Ultra rarely goes below 60fps, but rarely above 100fps. For those who don't have 3D Vision, it's a little-known fact that 3D Vision at 120hz has the same motion clarity as lightboost 120hz. I doubt that I can run 120hz consistently without turning down a few settings, but I have also noticed that aliasing is much less noticeable in 3D, so less AA is needed.

I won't argue back and forth about how long it might be before you can get 120fps in x game, I will only suggest your experience with skyrim likely says more about skyrim then it does about your machine's graphical grunt. As for witcher 3 we're kind of discussing one extreme end since there's not much doubt it's going to be a graphical beast. Most games (even AAA titles) aren't witcher 3 or crysis 4 or whatever else that's basically written to only run really well on hardware that hasn't been released yet.

At any rate, great discussion, thanks!

With that in mind, I have decided not to go with this monitor. I had a less than stellar experience recently with a pair of 780's in SLI that I picked up specifically to run this monitor.

I went back to a single 780Ti. What I will get is one of the 1080P G-Sync monitors that are coming out.

SLI was w/ 780's, not 780 Ti's, right?

I get very good frames/IQ in BF4 with 2 Ti's. I know I'll get a performance hit when I go 1440p. I was thinking of getting Windows 8 when the monitor comes out, for an extra little performance boost...was also thinking about picking up a 3770k. Rly rly want 1440p @120hz.

Just realized something, Nvidia is going to need to release a driver update to remove the pixel clock on their cards. AMD will have to do this as well for the frame rate....

1440P @ 120 Hz requires a pixel clock higher than 400 Mhz, which is the current ceiling on Nvdia and AMD cards.

In my games I like high contrast and nice color saturation. I've calibrated many a display, and it almost always throttles those two back for color "accuracy" which I don't give a rats ass about. I prefer the natural pop of wide gamut displays instead of trying to reel them in for Photoshop accuracy. Plus the headaches of dealing with multiple displays that are all slightly off. To each his own, it's worked quite well for me to eye-ball settings for the look I want instead of a calibrator and .icc profile.

780's. Frame rate isn't the problem though. Max frame rates are more than sufficient with two highly clocked 780's. The issue I had was going from one very fast card to an SLI setup. There is a definite lessening in smoothness with SLI. I've had plenty of sets over the years and many crossfire sets but rarely compared a single fast card to two in tandem with the exact same system setup.

So it appears this monitor will support 3D vision at 1440p. I need this monitor, frown.gif

3D vision is a requirement for those monitors because g-sync has always a strobe and is always on high hz. Those are the only requirements for 3d vision. (And it can be hacked in on many other monitors, so it's mainly high frequency that's needed for better experience).
