yeah that sucks....but i bought my first one for $800, 2nd for $790 I really don't feel like spending more than that for someone who doesn't have amazon's return policy

Alright guys, running into something strange with my Swift.

I've been playing BF4 and some other games at 2560x1440 @ 144hz with G-Sync on, and after about 10-20 mins of continuous play, the screen will go black for a split second, and then my entire game is blurred. When I try to quit the game and go to desktop, my Swift loses signal to my PC and I am forced to restart my PC in order for it to correct itself. I'll then boot back up into Windows, launch another game, play for 10-15 minutes, and same thing. Quick, split-second black flash, and then my game is heavily blurred. wheee.gif

I've never seen anything like it before on any other monitor. Anyone run into this?

The swift is an incredibly buggy piece of hardware. Look at this thread and it's quite clear. Best to wait for when Asus releases a new model or revision of the swift. The current one is a piece of beta hardware.

again like everything ever the people with no problems don't speak up...only the ones with issues so yeah it looks bad but in grand scheme of things it isn't. Every single monitor thread is like this too for example just here.

but it's a rule of thumb basically...happy people never speak up unless asked directly...the vocal disappointed or angry minority always do

Try turning off Vsync and see if the problem goes away even try gaming on 120hz. Good luck with that, are you using the latest drivers?

He said he was running Gsync not vsync..You cannot run both. Unless you meant Gsync

I am using the latest drivers. V-Sync is already off, unless you're referring to G-Sync.

I'll try disabling G-Sync tonight to see if the issue persists. If the issue goes away with disabling G-Sync, well, that's great and all, but I didn't pay over $800 for a monitor that has G-Sync only for me to have to disable it's main key feature order to get it to work properly.

This one will be going back to Fry's. I'll get another Swift and see if the issue still occurs.

Reinstall Windows and set monitor settings to default. Then try again. A lot of problems with the Swift have been solved with a Windows reinstall.
