post #5011 of 6126
I have just pulled the trigger on the Freesync version of this monitor, ill stick a few photos up once it arrives!

Can you guys tell me what sort of tests I should carry out to test the quality of the unit? Not a monitor expert biggrin.gif

Cheers thumb.gif

I've made some tests...again biggrin.gif

tried Witcher 3 (about 35 FPS) and NO SCAN LINES
tried Batman AA GOTY (about 55 FPS) and NO SCAN LINES
tried Tomb Raider Underworld (95 FPS) and NO SCAN LINES

pls note that my set up is 2x GTX670 SLI so 95hz is my max refresh rate

Drivers 353.62

the latest drivers (358.59+hotfix) cause my FPS to drop to 8 on ALL games

Witcher 3 35 fps???

Do you have 2Gb or 4Gb cards?

Because a single 980 Ti performs around 50fps all ultra tongue.gif

Did you read mines are GTX 670 and 970, right ? wink.gif

anyway It's 35 FPS with everything on High and Hairworks for Geralt

I'm using it only as a benchmark for GSync

normally I do 44-48 FPS with foliage visibility on Medium and no Hairworks

Yeah I read "sli 670" ? I think you lost me here, what do you mean with a 970?


I am still suprised a sli 670 setup gets beaten by a single 980 ti!

So far no work from Acer about the issue, they seem preoccupied with the back-light problem...

Edit: for $10 I went ahead and ordered the 3ft version of this cable which seems to be the best option out there. I figured shorter was better too. Will report back about it on Friday.

I tried a new cable. Didn't work. But I had to get a 3m cable to reach around the desk to the tower anyway, so no loss.

I am mostly playing Crusader Kings 2 at the moment, in which I have yet to see the lines, and in which GSYNC really kicks ass. Smooth map scrolling with no tearing is what I am all about.

I have an open ticket with the retailer, and am trying to get time to intimate problem to ACER UK tech support directly. I am content to give them a while to sort this out. It is not bothering me seriously, other than the "my new toy ain't perfect" niggle. It isn't DOA and it is doing 99% of what I want it to do without problems.

Absolutely, if this is an issue only affecting a handful of units, I want it changed, but I can put up with it in the meantime.

Somewhat irritated with what the mods did to the new thread.

Got my monitor yesterday, had about an hour to test it but am pretty disappointed so far. It has a dead pixel to the middle left and surprisingly doesn't look as good as my old IPS monitor. The colors don't pop as much (I tried the color profiles, and the suggested settings from TFT) but alas it didn't help either. I am also noticing more of blur in detail, to the point where I notice it from a normal viewing distance compared to my old monitor. IPS glow is very minimal and I don't notice any BLB although the camera on my phone sure does, doesn't mean much to me anyhow.

If anyone has some suggestions about the blur let me know, Sketchus best summed it up on these 2 posts

I am also on the fence about RMAing it just for the fact it has a dead pixel, gonna try Stuck Pixel Sweeper tonight, but for $1300 you would think it would have some better quality control. Will test further tonight, who knows what it may bring. Again, any help on this is much appreciated.

EDIT: Nevermind about the blur, my memory served me wrong, just tested it again and its definitely the scan line issue

Hey hey, I've had this monitor for a couple of weeks now and I love it. I do have a little bit of BLB in the top and bottom left but nothing that bothers me. I also have the backlight issue where the right hand side of the monitor does not turn on on power up but that goes away once windows is booted. No other issues apart from running two games.

MSG V won't run with G-Sync. I have tried the last few Nvidia drivers but no go. I have also used DDU. The refresh rate counter on the top right just stays at 100 while frames using Afterburner OSD increase/decrease. I have frames capped at 98. Battlefield 4 and the Witcher 3 run beautifully. Also GTA V crashes a lot. At first it crashed on boot but once I loaded it in Safe Mode and adjusted the settings from my previous monitor (Asus PG 278Q) it loads now but everytime I go into the ingame map menu it crashes. Never had issues with my Asus Swift running these two games. I am running Windows 10 x64 and the install is fairly fresh. Don't really want to re-install Windows if I can help it. Any tips regarding these two issues?

Thanks,

- I posted this earlier in the OWNERS thread but the thread got locked to moved to some "show your images, experiences thread" which was not really the place for this post.

The scan lines do vary from unit to unit, that is certain when some of us are only having the lines appear on the left side of the screen, while the same image, in the same instance is clear in another section of the same panel. I could see some units having much fainter lines than others as well. When my recent Swift died, it displayed these exact same horizontal lines with Gsync activated (the gsync unit died) all over the screen.

Had the same issue on day one, and it has not happened since using DDU to wipe my old drivers, and then re-installing my drivers. Prior to this, many games would result in a black screen, or a BSOD with the overstack error upon launching them.

It happens even at 60hz with gsync on.

I am still suprised a sli 670 setup gets beaten by a single 980 ti!

* I though you misread 670 for 970

* as for performances, I've researched a little before buying the X34.
With X34 resolution and some "high to ultra" settings, the delta performances are
2x 670 sli = approx 1x 790
2x 670 sli = 30% less than 1x 980
2x 670 sli = 50% less than 1x 980 ti

--> 35 FPS instead of 50+ FPS in Witcher 3 seems good to me.

Pls consider that normally I prefer image quality over pure FPS speed

and a 980ti is just some months away...it depends on my available budget

Plus, I wanna see some "REAL" numbers from Pascal before upgrading

Dauym, 50% less?

I could imagine those cards could do atleast 80% of the 980 Ti capacity tongue.gif

Is it the Vram that blocks the further performance?
