Asus PB287Q 4k 60hz 28" - Page 65

post #641 of 856
Gooing to 4K is the best thing I did in years. Games have more detail (in the distence) and the "automatic AA" is also nice.
I once went back to the beatifull PLS Samsung S27B970D with its glossy cover and that res was 2560x1440, but I was allmost shocked by the less amount of detail. It's an awesome screen though. If that ever comes in a 4K format, I'm sold. I compared it with a 24" so that's an easy win for 4K offcourse.

Are there any substantial differences in terms of clearness and detail between a 27' 1440p and a 28' 4K?actually I'm using my PC mainly to play.
Thanks!

I agree with the above posters, going from a 27" 2560x1440 (glossy 118Hz IPS) to this 27" 4K is very noticeable in game. More than I was expecting even. You can turn off AA too, even the best AA blurs some. 27" 4K gaming is very sharp and detailed, sadly frame rates aren't that good with only SLI Titans.

The answer is yes. The 4k is much sharper because it has twice as many pixels in the same area.

Thank you for all your answers. I could not imagine that there is such a difference of sharpness and details between a 27" 1440p and a 28" 4k. A lot of people suggested me to move to a bigger 4k monitor in order to have more benefits from its use, but your experiences Push me to buy it.As I said before, my use is for gaming primarily, so do you reconfirm that the difference between the 1440p (the one I actualy have) and the 28" 4k is worthy for the change of the monitor?Actually And if you were me, which one between a 28" 4k or asus pg278q gsync would you buy?

TBH I am getting the PG278Q. I like 4K a lot in game but going back to 60Hz is too much of a smoothness and input lag hit. This PB287Q has very good response times and low input lag (for a 60Hz) but it still feels slow and choppy compared to my 118Hz IPS. The motion blur is less on the PB287Q due to the response time so it isn't all bad. The IPS'es response time is obviously too slow for sharp 118 Hz. Very low response times, color as good or even better than this PB287Q, 120+ Hz, and at least 2560x1440 have me very interested in the PG278Q; g-sync is simply a major bonus.

I like high quality settings and I cannot handle tearing so vsync is on; even with AA off SLI Titan's cannot do better than min ~40 fps at 4K.

With vsync off the 4K@60Hz feels much better but the tearing hurts. frown.gif

edit: If you were willing to turn down settings such that you could get 60+ fps (maybe not too hard with the extra card smile.gif ) and run with vsync off.. I am less sure which screen I would like better. Still, the amazing smoothness and super low input lag of the PG278Q is hard to pass up for a pure gaming screen.

Problem is with your setting more than anything else. This screen has actually very low input lag, the lag you feel is because your cards are under performing and you're putting up a slideshow....that's why it feels choppy.

True, if I drop to settings where I get min fps >60 and leave vsync off it feels very nice, no noticeable input lag at all. It is tricky to say which looks better: settings all the way up at 2560x1440 or down enough to get a solid 60+ fps at 4K. Depends on the game and the computer. smile.gif

120+ Hz will always have lower input lag if the processing is faster than one frame but I doubt I can really feel 8.33ms.

Hey guys just wanted to share my experience with this awesome monitor , I only received mine on Friday and I have had no issues with flickering at 60 fps . set the monitor to 1.2 everything works how it should and gaming at 4k is amazing , I have been using 1440 res for the past year and it makes that look rubbish.


But here is the problem I have and I want your opinion on if I should send it back monday as from what I am seeing should not be happening , I have changed the display port cable and tried HDMI and still have the same problem


I have taken some photos to show you all , In games you don't notice it but when ever you use a white background eg looking on the internet I can see this light stripey line from the top left of the screen and it waves down to the bottom ! I take it this is a faulty monitor because seriously it shouldn't be doing that right ? its not much of an issue but that fact i know its there i notice it all the time and it drives me insane.

Yeah; mine doesn't have anything like that. tongue.gif

I would exchange it. No reason to keep a defective screen when you can get a great one for only a bit of frustration (exchange process).

If you keep it I bet you start noticing it even in games, against the sky sometimes, etc. I had a defect like that on an older IPS, it was a dark version but otherwise similar. It drove me crazy and I started noticing it all the time in games and anime; probably at least half the time due to suggestion but that is still really annoying.

Just got my second PB287Q!

I've really fallen inlove with 4k. At first i had some issues with the sleep mode of the monitor where the screen would'nt power back on properly but everything got fixed with the latest nvidia drivers.

At that exact moment the store i usually get all my stuff had a demo for sale wich was only €450 and i just could'nt resist... Tough my gfx cards are running at about 70 degrees with the nzxt kraken g10 while playing bf4 it is so beautiful! Highest temp i had seen with a triple 1080p setup was about 40-50 degrees celcius so these monitors are really pushing the my system to the absolute maximum, but its worth it.

If anyone is considering to buy this monitor and you have money aswell as the needed horsepower to back it up, Just do it.
post #650 of 856
I'm considering buying the pb287q, except with the prospect of better 4k screens on the horizon, I'm heavily reconsidering my original plan to get this one. More specifically, I'm considering buying this monitor, waiting for 4k g-sync (with the asus 4k2k), or 4k VA/IPS (with the promised pb279q). Do you guys think I should wait to see how good those monitors are, or do you think I should just go with the pb287q. I am currently running one 780 ti (acx SC), so I don't have the most horsepower to drive the monitor, but I don't plan on playing the newest, most demanding games, but mainly older games (eg. modded skyrim), where a 780ti should suffice, and also using the extra resolution for productivity, and content viewing.
