Hmm...I'm thinking about "needing" my Acer XB270HU on my work computer and having to buy a replacement Asus PG279Q. Haha. However...wondering about the 165Hz OC. Does it allow GSYNC operation at that level? Or is it GSYNC up until 144Hz, then "VSYNC Off" mode past 144Hz? If it's GSYNC up to 165Hz it's a definite buy for me...I find 144Hz lacking...or I am paranoid... tongue.gif

IPS isn't a scam. It looks substantially better than TN. I would take a 120Hz IPS over a 200Hz TN any day of the week. Because I love my eyes. And when you love something, you treat it right.

Although I should mention that the XB270HU is only a pseudo-IPS panel. It can't even touch Samsung's PLS display, let alone LG's true IPS panels.

The asus uses the same panel.

Yeah I'm aware. I just want that 165Hz. Just because. tongue.gif Although I'm going to wait for benchmarks with regards to pixel response, ghosting, and overdrive at those levels.

From what I understood, GSYNC is actually the only mode in which 165Hz is supported.

That's what I read too. I was hoping for confirmation as there were early rumours that it only went to 165Hz in vsync-off mode. I really wonder how the pixel response and overdrive is set up at 165Hz...

Wonder how many will fry a hole in monitors at 165hz is it really that costly or unimaginable to put a replacable 80mm fan on the gsync module cause im sure 99% of issues with gsync monitors is the module overheating or poor thermal compounds.

Touch IPS and PLS in what regards? AHVA does everything IPS and PLS do, but it's faster.

On-topic, 850 euros is a bit more than i am willing to pay for it. Might have to consider the XB271HU after all.

Any US msrp? £749.99 turns into about $1500 CDN. rolleyes.gif

I'll be getting a new PG278Q in about a week, just waiting on the shipment, but I'll be taking it back within 30 days for a PG279Q if they are released on time and no more than an extra $100.
