Wishing the market worked one way doesn't help or change anything. As of this moment, freesync is plagued with issues that are deal breakers (ghosting, input lag, limited refresh rate), and gsync works seamlessly (gaming nirvana). There's nothing more to talk about, this is the market and these are your choices. If you're willing to gimp your own gaming experience just to stand on moral high ground you have yet another two choices to pick from.

Option A: Self importance has gotten the better of you
Option B: Common sense is not your strong point
Option C: Grab a 120hz monitor without VRR, an extra GPU, brute force an acceptable framerate then lock it in.

No gimped gaming experience needed.

Why won't you buy a G-sync monitor? The technology itself is not likely to stop being supported anytime soon. And there's no real reason to consider AMD in the near future if you're already on the green team.

Thanks, but what about 48hz plain Vsync vs 60hz vsync? I guess with Vsync on it would be jumping between 48 and 72hz which would be easier to get than a constant 60fps but what does 48 look like? Is it basically the same as 60hz vsync or a lot worse looking?
I've never seen or played at 48 Hz Vsync, but my most educated guess is that it doesn't look or feel much differently from 48 Hz VRR, and i doubt it looks much worse than 60 Hz Vsync.

The Hobbit was shot in 48 FPS, right? Its fluidity should be an exact match for 48 Hz Vsync; you can make the comparison by watching it, i guess.

And I am here sitting still waiting for reviews biggrin.gif

This monitor really looked promising back in January. Current prices in europe look like 650-700€. A bit too high in my opinion. I would consider buying one if it is like 550-600€ and has good reviews and no big flaws.

No matter what there is always the fear of getting an old model. I hope the retailers are honest about it when you ask them lol.

If you got an old model you can RMA it to Asus and they'll fix it, or just go to the retailer and get an exchange. I wouldn't worry about getting one that wasn't fixed, if that does occur then again just go ahead and get it exchanged smile.gif

Try running Witcher 3 on Ultra at 1440p with V-sync on and tell me if you get 120Hz.

I'm gonna wait until reviews come out before I make a choice. If it hits like 400-500 USD, then it's an insta-cop for me.

Brute will never make up for not having VRR unfortunately. I know people say there is no difference in the max frame scenario but it's just false information some seem to enjoy spreading around. On my old 1080p 120hz monitor I did that in a few games. 780 Ti + tweaked graphic settings was able to keep my frames pegged pretty much constantly. It's definitely far from gimped, but the experience does fall short of GSYNC.

Makes me wonder why people even care about whether these kinds of displays have indicator lights on them to inform whether VRR is in use. Max frames or not you can tell when it's not working, cause you won't deem the game to be playable. Not after letting your eyes adjust to GSYNC that is.

That is absolutely true. VRR helps ameliorate a lot of things, including microstuttering and tearing. Fluidity is always increased, even though it's diminishing returns after a certain point.

One has to, however, consider that not all visual systems are made alike. Different people are differently sensitive to luma, chroma, and motion. I happen to be extremely sensitive to motion and luma, which has caused me a great deal of pain trying to decide what new monitor to buy...

Different folks and all that.
