don't believe the marketing, you make it sound like only monster cables can give you high quality 1080p picture from hdmi :-p

but when i get my 3rd swift i'll need a 10ft dp to connect to the pc so i'll be able to help from there and i'll be buying off amazon.

That's true, only real tests can tell how well it works. I would personally prefer something like 15ft but I haven't seen people who succeeded at that, and I don't want to buy a cable that's not going to work.
Anyway I still have some time, I managed to convince myself that I will wait until Big Maxwell when I get 3 Swifts at the same time redface.gif

I was under the impression that higher is better. It seemed to me that the 32AWG cable was noticeably thicker than the 30AWG cable.

G-Sync: Nvidia Control Panel -> Set-Up G-Sync

  • You might have to go to Manage 3D Settings and enable G-Sync. It should be the next to the bottom of the choices in the window. (Where V-Sync/AV-Sync normally are).
  • Notes:
    • To Run in G-Sync, all games must be run in fullscreen mode. Not fullscreen(windowed) or windowed modes.
    • V-Sync ingame must by turned off.
    • You'll see that G-Sync is active when the power light goes from a yellowish-white to pure red.
      • Light in Motion (the LED in the stand's base) is NOT the light that tells you when G-Sync is active
      • Some Blizzard games are really wonky with G-Sync.
        • Might actually have to enable V-Sync in the game after putting it in Fullscreen mode to activate G-Sync for that Blizzard title. Most notably for me, Diablo 3. 

 

ULMB: Nvidia Control Panel -> Manage 3D Settings

  • Turn off G-Sync in NVCP.
  • Then go into the CRU (Set Resolution in NVCP) and change it to 120Hz. ULMB will only work with 120Hz refresh rate if I remember correctly (Haven't used it in ages, G-Sync blows it out of the water imho).
  • Then go into your monitor's OSD, and navigate your way to the submenu where it says ULMB (it shouldn't be greyed out now). I'm not at my computer so I cannot tell you the exact menu/submenu options.
    • Choose the pulse rate to whatever you want.
    • Oh, and I forgot to mention, that I think you do have to have brightness @ 100% to start off. Since ULMB will lower the brightness of your monitor considerably.
  • Notes:
    • Probably want to have V-Sync turned on at all times if you plan on running ULMB. Also, you'll need a setup capable of pushing out frames fast enough to maintain 120fps at ALL TIMES. Otherwise, ULMB just tends to really really really really really really really really really really really really really suck.

 

Hope that helped!

Lower the gauge number..Thicker the wire.. example.. 28awg is thicker per 30awg..

Welp my Swift just took a crap. Not even 60 days old, purchased on 8/29/14.

After dealing with the screen door affect since day one now the damn thing is super blurry on all HZ levels. Can't even read text without tons of eye strain.


Those who have had RMA's what is the cost of shipping? Does ASUS do a return policy like Dell does with their Ultrasharps?



Sigh, anyone else really disappointed in how many units are failing now?

The odds are slim, but have you tried a different DP cable?

I'm using a 10ft Belkin DisplayPort cable with absolutely no issues whatsoever. Works perfectly. And it's 10 feet long.
