I can confirm this with a GTX770. It only gets 95hz at home. Took the monitor to a mates place and hooked it up to his GTX980. 100hz no problem. The refresh rate is card limited.

After a few months of owning the swift I'm freaking bored of this ****ty monitor, and had to buy the x34 predator. I will probably end up selling the swift dirt cheap but I don't mind... so if you have the budget for this one go ahead and don't waste your time with the swift.

I verified it was the US store I talked to rep today because I had to cancel my first order. I ordered the monitor last night and it said it was in stock with 3 at the LA branch. It says back order now so I don't know how long I will be waiting. The rep said they still have them in warehouse but she didn't know if I was on the list for this week. My CC was verified and I haven't been charged yet.

Not sure why there is any confusion as to why a 670 isn't working correctly or achieving 100hz. 960 > 670.

Wouldn't be much confusion if

1. It stated why, since the Nvidia website doesn't list anything limiting with G-Sync on the 6 series and

2. We didn't have confirmation that 100hz works on a 780

LOL someone put a 1 egg review on newegg because their monitor did 95hz, but judging from the past comments here, it could just be his video card

1 egg review:
Pros: Smooth, nice led lights at the bottom of monitor (of which you can change from differnt color variations), nice logo, gsync, even bigger than i expected

Cons: Mine did not overclock to 100hz, only to 95hz. menu buttons were hard to navigate with. Price!

Clearly deserves 1 egg..................................

Someone else had mentioned horizontal scanlines on their screen, which yes is RMA worthy as that is a dying/broken/defective GSYNC module. I know this because when my old swift went down, it started to display the same horizontal lines and flickering when GSYNC was activated, but was otherwise fine. Now with the x34, the entire image is nice and clear EXCEPT for the far left side of my screen, there is a small patch of an area that displays these horizontal scanlines... I was able to sweep my camera over the city, showing the clear LACk of these lines, but the moment it would reach the far left, into this patch, you would see the horizontal image destroying lines. I tested this in another area, where my FPS was a solid 100, and the lines were so hard to see. It was debatable if they were even there. Back to the sign, where my FPS drops to 50 ish, and the scanlines are back, but only within that patch. It IS annoying, but so minor I will overlook it unless it gets worse, or the patch grows. It's only visible with GSYNC active too. The problem remains at 80hz, or 100hz with GSYNC. I did not test 60hz + gsync.

Thanks for this - this is the first time I have seen anyone else with my problem. 100hz works fine. BLB is fine. No coil noise. Everything perfect (only gets 95hz on my GTX770, but 100hz on a friends GTX980, so a hardware swap will fix that).

However, if I turn on both OC mode and g-sync I get those scanlines everywhere. g-sync with OC off? Fine. OC mode at 100hz no g-sync? Fine. It seems to me that Acer's overclock circuitry is affecting the g-sync module in OC mode.
Warning: Big images of problem ahead! (Click to show)
To be clear:
WIthout g-sync it looks like this. Don't be fooled by some lines, those are just the camera focusing on a row of pixels.


And with g-sync (you are looking at the bands of light and dark not the individual pixels):

It is one of these really annoying problems that once seen you cannot unsee. So I have applied to the retailer for a return/replacement, unless anyone has a bright idea.

*raises his hand*

Got a GTX 780 and monitors works perfectly at 100 Hz

That was my thought too. We aren't just OCing the panel after all, we are OCing the GSYNC module, it seems. I might give 70hz+ gsync a whirl later on, I wonder if at some point the lines actually go away. In either case, on my dead/dying Swift the lines were bad like yours and all over the screen.

If I had those lines all over my screen, I would RMA immediately as well. Where I barely have it on a small portion of my screen, eh, I honestly can't find the "patch" at times.


Are you using GSYNC in fullscreen only, or windowed? I wonder if windowed is causing any issues.

i had LG 34UM65 and now a Samsung 27 inch ips and did not have any BLB i don't understand how this monitor can have some, bad panel, bad hardware, the little curve factor, firmwire to fix? I start considering that asus i don't know about buying something that pricey and already looking to fix it the 1 day.
