Its not a monitor validated by AMD, that's about it. Whereas AMD vets all FreeSync monitors so they can use the label, ASUS here just adheres to the DP1.2a spec with the optional variable refresh component and broadcasts that availability to the GPU via EDID. 

 

Which is interesting, because that's probably how Nvidia's going to work VRR on non-GSync monitors. I remember AMD's work last year with a monitor that supported VRR already, but needed to be tricked into doing it through the use of a DP1.2 MST hub. They just said at the time that they could do it because they could overrride the EDID, but it wasn't a good solution for consumers.

Sorry, wrong. Pretty sure most people prefer rich vibrant colors rather than a grainy matte coating that dulls the colors and puts a screen door effect on the entire image. If you can afford a $600-1200 monitor you can afford to control ambient light in your computer room. Curtains and blinds arent that expensive.

Nothing against those who choose to put their setups in sunny, bright rooms and need matte. All we as consumers want is a glossy OPTION. True PQ enthusiasts will always prefer glossy/semi glossy over matte.

Al those silly pros with the $10k displays and hoods what do they know rolleyes.gif

is it truely an IPS though? what type of IPS had they discovered that actually managed 120Hz without going catleap-mode?

or is it yet another AHVA=IPS PR stunt... theres a clear difference between IPS and AHVA mind you, they aren't the same architecture(term?).

Don't forget the ROG tax on a monitor like the Swift biggrin.gif. Plus it came out a while ago if you ask me and even this monitor is late Q1 (or Q2 someone else said possibly).

The price on this monitor is to drool for though and I can easily see this replacing my U2711! While also giving me the 120 Hz I so crave! Now I need to consider buying a cheap AMD card! But maybe some more 120 Hz 1.2a spec monitors will come into view and make 2015 a really fun year to buy a monitor.

Any word on the hdmi ports though? Would love if they were 2.0 and not 1.4.

I don't think Asus has ever used the VA=IPS stunt in the past, I doubt they'd do it now.

And even if it would be a VA variation, It would still be better than a TN panel.

I was taking for granted this is the same AUO panel Acer is using in the XB270HU (AHVA). I haven't heard of any other 1440p ips-type display that does 120/144Hz.
