[Various] ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q & GTX 780Ti Matrix review - Page 2  

post #11 of 1242
Man, I would really like to know what the black value of this monitor is (in Candela).

They did comment that the back of the display has a pretty slick venting structure. There's definitely some heat being generated in there - I wonder if it is G-Sync that is drawing the power.

The review made it sound like anything below 70FPS and GSYNC wouldn't work correctly, which I don't believe is true. You could run max settings with GSYNC and game at 50-70FPS and it'd still be roughly as smooth as a 60hz monitor with the benefits of no tearing, I'd definitely prefer lower FPS and higher settings, with maybe the exception of online FPS.

That has yet to be said in an review....

So far everyone that has seen it in person has said that it is close to IPS/PLS levels in color - unfortunately this review didn't really touch too much on color or properly measure it and give it a direct comparison.

That price though frown.gif

I was so hyped for this monitor when it was announced in December, but due to the price, I stuck with 1080p 144hz frown.gif

ASUS stated in the interview that they will still be worse. He states "if someone want the best black levels, color, viewing angles, then they still make IPS panels for that market.". However, even if color is equal, the viewing angles will cause quite a bit of color washout along the edges even when viewing from dead on. mad.gif

I think it was this video?

Hopefully we get some more detailed reviews soon.

What does venting structure mean? Is there a fan installed or is it passively cooled?
post #17 of 1242
A pretty disappointing review, here's hoping there are some more comprehensive ones in the near future. As much as I'd like a G-sync monitor, I think I'll pass for now either way.

I would be interested in this it if were not so expensive in the UK in comparison to the US.

'Only $799 in America but £720 in UK ($1235).'

Yeah, no.

The question is will G-sync be Betamax to Adaptive Vsync's VHS.
