I would assume that there's a small chance that it does but very slim as that firmware is dated 2015/08/28.

Unfortunately not, only models after October are 165hz.

This is wrong, I had a September model that had the updated firmware. But if some september units don't have it then august units are guaranteed not to have it.

I'd keep the monitor If it doesn't have any other issues than lack of 165hz.

Bit of a long story.

So I bought this monitor yesterday, basically can say on a whim as I was initially contemplating upgrading from 980Ti to a 1080. Glad I didn't!...

So, when I arrived at my local retailer, after suddenly realizing that spending an extra $300 for a gpu that doesn't really give me substantial gains as much as I'd like, I decided to give Gsync a go instead and maybe that'll be like a pseudo upgrade seeing as lower fps feels smooth unlike a non gsync monitor (was using PB278Q). When I asked about this particular monitor, the seller advised me not to buy it, he and many others had experienced dodgy samples and out of the 8 they had, 6 were returned....you could say I was slightly hesitant....but, I thought I drove all the way up there I would take a gamble and if it didn't work out, I'd just get a refund. Well after a bit of reading about the issues and date stamps and whatnot, I seemed to have hit the lottery, lol. The one I picked up had dust covering the top of the box, I can only assume that people didn't want to gamble on it and it just sat there, guess being the last one left, I got the lucky last smile.gif Anyways, Mine's a November version, and has 0 issues. I'm so pleased I picked this up, this has substantially increased the life of my 980 Ti (although upgrader's itch will likely rear its head again biggrin.gif).

My experience so far, although very little, is I greatly prefer gsync over ulmb. I can now play games like Arkham Knight, Doom, Evil within at 3k/4k and feels buttery smooth. Playing Witcher 3 with every major setting on max @ 2804x1577. I doubt the 1080 would have made it feel smooth on a non gsync monitor like this. Gamer's Bliss.

I'm using TFTC's icc profile and OSD settings.

Yeah got my monitor yesterday! late to the party but I waited for these do go on sale..

Anyway is the down clocking to 2d clocks still a thing?

Quote:
Q: Are there any known issues with 144hz displays and Nvidia GPUs (the "3D-power state downclocking bug on the Windows desktop")?
A: Yes; a bug currently exists (presumably a driver-level bug) that forces Nvidia GPUs to use 3D clocks + 3D power states when connected to a 144hz display and the desktop refresh rate is set to 144hz in NVCP; this means that your GPU will consume more power just idling on the Windows desktop. The current workaround is to go into NVCP, select "Highest Available" for the "Preferred refresh rate" setting, and then set your desktop refresh rate down to 120hz; you'll lose the ~24hz additional refresh rate while on the desktop/navigating Windows explorer, but it will still be significantly smoother than 60hz, and your GPU will downclock to a normal 2D state on the Windows desktop only when the desktop refresh rate is at 120hz or lower.

I've set up both NVCP and windows monitor adapter setting to 144hz, checked with MSI afterburner and the desktop clocks remain at 135Mhz as expected.

I got a OCT 2015 model using 368.39 drivers and only this display hooked up thumbsupsmiley.png.

Giving up on this panel for now. I've played the lottery with many other panels over the past couple of years, including the VP2770, BL3201PH and another LG panel. At this point, I'm exhausted... I just want a monitor with low input lag, good image quality and Gsync. The third unit I received had dead pixels and mediocre white uniformity.

EDIT: I meant to post this in the XB271HU thread, not here. My mistake. They're basically the same thing, so I suppose this works too.

My XB270HU screen sometime goes black for half a second or so.
Did someone else got this before ?

I know that this is happening when some electric arc are close, like a lighter for a candle.

but in this case I don't think there are electric events around.

Is the monitor on his dead way ?

Shall I try to just replace the power supply ?

My screen is from 1 st June 2015 (1 year old, daily usage in Gsync mode).
