[Various] Acer G-Sync 27" QHD IPS 144Hz monitor debut - Page 36  

post #351 of 1416
Now if manufacturers would step their game up and come out with a 34-38" panel. After going to a 34" panel, and it feeling normal now, there is no way I would go back to a 27. mad.gif

As far as I know there is at least a 32" AHVA panel with 2560x1440. This with 120 Hz would be an instant buy for me.

Ideally for ULMB, you'd have transitions fast enough to allow for strobing the backlight after a considerable but still short delay, and only catching one frame outside of all but the most extreme transitions

True, but this is a new gen of IPS type panel. We cant say for sure what response times will actually be since we have never seen these generations panels yet. I have had a Catleap 2B for quite a few years now as it has still been the best monitor on the market. It is an older IPS but is still fast enough to run at 120Hz with not too much motion issue from the refresh. It works perfect with no refresh artifacts in the 96Hz area. If companies are now coming out with new gen panels that are sold with stock speeds of 144Hz, I think it should be pretty safe to think these newer panels will have significantly better refresh speeds than the older panels, so the older ways of thinking about the panel types will no longer be valid.

Its good that technology is moving forward at least. thumb.gif Really depends on your gaming style & the games you play. For fast-twitch multiplayer games nothing can come close to 120/144hz ULMB(lightboost) period. Once you experience it for those types of games 60Hz just wont do. Adventure, racing, & RPG games are perfectly fine at 60hz imo.

In so many ways this. I play everything but for first person view games, WoW etc. the higher refresh ALONE is a game changer.

Catleaps and X-Star/Qnix monitors have been around for years already... this kind of thing is nothing new, and they never really got much traction amongst gamers or computer users at all.

You should have quit while you were ahead. The WQHD Korean monitors never gained much traction because of their A- panel lottery, their unpredictable OC, and lack of decent warranty. I almost bought an Overlord Tempest but luckily decided to hold off for a Gsync variant. Korean tech was more of an appetizer than "been there done that". Now we are finally looking at possible (dont forget none of these have actually released) mainstream consistent high framerate IPS panels and you want to call them old tech? I think your are putting the horse way before the cart.

This all coming from a guy who obviously sits at the bleeding edge of everything technology. So I, and most other members must have dinosaur rigs in your opinion. Not everyone can afford to routinely upgrade to the latest and greatest tech in monitors and have their system remain compatible at the same time. I bet more members have rigs that can run 1440p at high framerates than those who can run 4K at high framerates. I am also going to infer that most members here still run Windows 7 vs blindly upgrading to Windows 8. Actually I just ran through the forum and the vast majority have Windows 7 in their signature. Oh and by the way I run a free older version of Photoshop and didn't pirate it. I am just trying to balance my system with my display, and these upcoming mainstream WQHD IPS monitors fit the bill. For me (and surely the average gamer) a 120-144Hz 1440p IPS (with Gsync) is perfect for our current setups. I am going to go out on a limb and predict better sales for the 1440p vs the 4K sync monitors this year because of the better price alone. Monitor sales are highly dependent on their price point, that is a fact BTW...

Oh and WQHD is way more realistic for multiple monitor setups than 4-5K monitors that don't even exist yet. That is anothe reason that WQHD will remain relevant vs UHD for the time being. Until at least the next generation of GPUs arrive and the price of these high resolution panels decreases. Just because the technology has been around for a while doesn't mean that it is old school, it just means that it took a while to perfect and come down to the right marketable price.

i see this common misconception about Korean monitors quite often. they're popular because of their fantastic value, but there's no chance they can compete high quality panels made by big name manufacturers. whenever i see someone compare an OC'd Korean (most of which don't even reach 100hz) to a native 120/144hz display.. kookoo.gif

To be fair, we haven't had full supported implementation of it yet, that is why it didn't really catch on. The majority of users don't want to have to fuss with overclocking their display, the entire idea that you can just blows their minds.

So while you and I have enjoyed 1440P IPS 120 Hz gaming for a few years, it still has some room to grow. Not having to OC the display yourself, 144 Hz, and motion blur reduction are huge bonuses.

Ansolutely right ^

Once more, 4k is NOT interesting as long as we don´t have a working GPU solution for it. SLI does NOT work, period. I had an SLI setup and sold it quite fast because it comes with so many negative things. Many features G-Sync offers are not working with SLI setups, so the only reason to run SLI would be to maintain a constant 60fps on 4k...hoping that game supports it.

I work on a Retina iMac, and yes, its wonderful to have that much workspace available but I would never trade high FPS 1440p for 4K+ resolutions. The moment we get a decent GPU offering 60fps on 4k I am all in.

Oh and please, do not compare the Korean Lottery to a decent monitor - those things are terrible on anything but price.

Lol. What do you think they make the brand name monitors out of? What's a decent monitor? A TN?

Please. Do not try to make universal generalizations about monitors unless you have more universal knowledge about them.

A lot of people have been talking about maintaining high framerate on these 120/144hz monitors. however if you cant maintain the fps of the native refresh rate of the monitor (120fps/120hz or 144fps/144hz) would you still get the benefit of the higher refresh rate?

My thought it that yes you would as if your fps was lower than the refresh rate of the monitor then the monitor would display frames multiple times and would smooth out the image, does this sound right? i was just wondering as im not sure how well an 8350 and 290x would drive a 1440p 144hz monitor with all the bells and whistles turned up (i do like my bells and whistles).
