First, it's still 60hz and I didn't overclock it. It was more to point out that monitor cost for user don't really decrease (fast). Secondly, I am really sad to see that display technology is also moving slowly. Why am I paying today 899/949$ (for ref: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236405&cm_re=swift-_-24-236-405-_-Product
) For a monitor like the swift?
1440p has been out for years, TN and IPS technology has been out for 2 decade
. The only thing that this differs from a normal 1080p 144hz tn panel is that the screen is a few inch bigger (and obviously the gsync module that cost about 150$ to include).
Same thing goes for those new 120Hz IPS displays, Why there is such a premium on those when you can buy a 4k tactile screen in a 5inch form factor, with a processor, memory, OS,GPS, gyroscopes and battery included(aka phones) for less then a regular plain monitor? It's not rocket science, the cost of the materiel isn't high and is not more expensive then regular 60hz monitor, the way the monitors function has not changed for decades, the technology has been out for years and yet it's going to cost me 2.5 times more expensive then the other plain monitor from 2 years ago? Beside adding 120hz with a flashy red color on the box is there a manufacturing reason/cost on why the premium is so high?Edited by kingduqc - 1/10/15 at 6:09pm
