Set contrast to 49 or 50 and brightness to 15-45. Leave it in user mode 100 R, G, B. The factory calibration is basically perfect. Any calibration I do simply causes banding or more color errors than it had out of the box. This screen has the best native gamma of any LCD I have measured, a perfect BT.1886. It goes through exactly 2.2 gamma at 50% IRE using 49 contrast and 25 brightness (25 seems like a sweet spot for brightness).

Unlike most other monitors the Swift has been very well calibrated at the factory.

How can you reset all ICC profiles and settings to default?

Filled out the application already, but here is some eye candy!!










Also no dead pixels or white spots! Haven't tested for pixel inversion yet but I will test that when I finish my desk!

I received mine on the 20th and I was originally worried about having problems with the monitor, not to mention I was about to order 3. So far they are great, minus a little dark area near the power button in the bottom right. This is on all 3 monitors so its probably something all of them have. All this to say that I think they fixed a lot of the issues with this next batch they sent out.

I will have more time to test out the monitors when my desk is finished and ill post up my findings then!

Check out my build log as well as the updates on the desk i'm building here:

I wanted the reference cool until EVGA raised their prices $50 since it was going end of life. I got the SC ACX 2.0 and I am quite happy with it. I was worried about the noise at first, but it is quieter than my 670's. I wish the glowing logo was RGB. The rest of the lights in my case are red.

The extreme shortage and lack of availability of the Swift makes complete sense now tongue.gif

Awesome!

Let's try this!

Still doesn't work with SLI + G-Sync.... Anyone else getting DSR option with SLI off and then it dissapears when you turn it on?

I've tried clean install with DDU but that didnt seem to change anything.

I'm 45 and have no issues reading with this monitor. The text does feel considerably smaller than my 27" 1080p monitor, but these days, it's easy to hold the Ctrl button down and scroll my mouse wheel to change text size in many apps like the web browser and MS Office apps, so I just do that when things feel to small, or my eyes are tired from sitting at a computer all day at work.

I think 27" is the minimum screen size for a 2560 x 1440 display. It would be too small if it were less, but just about right at this size for me. Certainly 4K would be way too small for me!

I did clean installation of the new driver as well. No DSR for both single gpu and SLI.

Edit: I do get DSR option with single GPU.

Same issue here. Funny thing is it shows up when I disconnect the Swift in favor of the PB278Q. I switch it back to the Swift and it disappears again. rolleyes.gif

I do get the option in single card mode.
