I went from a 1440 Overlord Tempest and a Catleap before that both IPS to a ROG Swift and I found the colors on the ROG Swift to be washed out and no good. The color shift was extra bothersome too. I think I'd prefer a larger 60hz IPS panel over a fast G-Sync TN panel even if it means I have tearing. When you overpower a monitor with 2x the frames per second ie 120fps on 60hz, the tearing isn't as bad.

Which is a considerable difference in the displayable colors. I also have a 1080p 8-bit IPS panel too (very similar situation as you). And they all look the same.

Try comparing one of those LG 1440p IPS panels with the ROG swift and you'll see a difference. I can't tell if it's the glossy > matte difference or if it's the IPS to TN. Maybe both. Either way, it's a night and day difference to my eyes. redface.gif

It's like all the colors on the ROG Swift are washed out with light even though the brightness is only set to 20. The IPS panel, although has the horrible IPS Glow, is able to produce a darker color and looks more vibrant. Again, maybe it's the matte?

It's almost like this in my eyes

Well, lets see:

 

  • Same color depth on both monitors (which affects displayable colors). The tech behind the monitor affects angles of viewing. Otherwise, they are identical.
  • About a 100 contrast ratio difference between PLS vs TN (can slightly affect colors).
  • Matte vs. Semi-Gloss. Yeah, the matte layer does reduce vibrancy of colors. Which is probably what you are seeing. Because the tech behind them is identical in displayable colors.

 

I've been able to compare the Swift between it, a U2713HM, a PB278Q, and a 34UM95. They are essentially identical. In fact, the Swift is the most accurate at producing colors between all of them.

Is it bad enough that you regret buying the ROG swift?

You guys think we'll be able to overclock this panel above 60hz, at least at lower resolutions than 2160p.

At lower resolutions maybe, but 60Hz at 4K is the limit for DP 1.2

Right - I really wish you could get above 60Hz at 1440p or 1080p. What's involved with overclocking a monitor (I've never done it)? Just a driver update that someone would need to hack up?

I have decided to show a little patience after the announcement of the DP 1.3 standard being completed around a month ago with GPUs/Monitors expected to have it next year.

I bought and returned both a PB287Q (white flashing, popping sounds, etc.) and a ROG Swift (severe light bleed, washed out colors, inversion, etc.) so the Acer 4K G-sync was next on my radar. This was when I figured DP 1.3 products might be 2-3 years away. Now my line of thought is that G-sync's window of benefit @60hz from ~45fps to 59fps is probably too narrow to pay a premium for today if a higher refresh rate monitor is likely to hit in the next 12 months.

It wouldn't even take 120-144hz 4K G-sync for me to bite. Even 90hz would probably suffice for me, but $800 for 60hz is probably pushing it. The glossy bezel and wobbly stand at a $800 price point doesn't help.
