I just checked and at 75 FPS (96Hz monitor) I can see it but only if I'm looking for it, by turning near a house and watching the door. I think the higher detail of new games may help hide it, since it would be easier to see on a larger blank texture (think something like a wall in Half-Life or something).

Yeah you really have to look hard and move very fast. I am just saying this because i dont want to dish a lot of money for something i might not see in real games.

It's really something we needed 5 years ago. With new higher refresh panels I don't think frame tearing is as big an issue as it used to be. It used to drive me batty, but now that I'm on this 96Hz panel I only notice it sometimes.

I would agree, as long as you can keep up with a high refresh rate i don't really notice tearing. I've had a 120hz screen for a few years now and if i can keep fps near that it makes a big difference. I think anyone with a decent screen higher than 60hz is probably better off waiting for prices to come down on these Freesync/Gsync screens, otherwise they end up spending a lot for something that isn't going to make a large difference. I would guess with 1440p it would help quite a bit in demanding games though.

Everyone who thinks G-sync is pointless should play a game with it on for a while and the turn it off... it is amazing how much crap we think is fine until we get used playing without it. You can claim placebo all you want. rolleyes.gif

V-sync off has stutter, it isn't like it removes the stutter problem completely. You still have part of a frame displayed for more time then the motion it represents and part of the frame displayed for less time than the motion it represents. There is less motion blur and it is easier to recognize object in high motion with G-sync than with V-sync off.

Now I am much less forgiving of tearing or stutter and I was rather unhappy before, which is why I got the Swift in the first place.

As soon as they make a VRR enabled 120Hz IPS 1440p for less than $500, I'll be all over it.

I bet this isn't too far away, right now they still have the new tech premium but just below $500 is not unreasonable for a decent 1440p 120 Hz IPS with VRR in the near future (probably FreeSync first, of course). biggrin.gif

If you're willing to settle for a TN, Acer has one coming up.

Yeah. It is stupid how massive of a difference it is when you've gotten used to VRR. It is unreal. It isn't even remotely placebo. It is a night and day difference. Its kinda like those that moved to a 120/144Hz monitor have trouble going back to a 60Hz monitor.

 

You HAVE to try it before you can comment on it. You can talk all day that you don't notice the problems, but once it is actually solved and you try and go back before the solution, the problems stick out like a sore thumb.

I wish I had your eyes. That's why my U2711 is for movies and TV now and troubleshooting PC's with its multiple inputs. Color is nice though which is the only thing it has over my Swift.
