[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 189

post #1881 of 9392
Does the Acer XB270HU have an instant on/off switch like the ROG Swift?
post #1882 of 9392
In the sweclockers review, the mention a passive cooling of the G-sync module. To me, it sounded as though some heatsink was added to the unit. Can anyone clarify this, and if so, can you confirm whether the PG278Q has this as well or not? Better cooling to the g-sync unit might be a good sign of longevity.

People will obviously buy what they prefer or what they THINK is best... but there really isn't going to be much separating the Acer and Asus models here. Same with the two ultra-wides they will have out soon. No reason why they shouldn't be almost identical in price. The extended delay for the PG279Q makes you wonder what the hell they've been doing all this time though, if they've been unable to produce something that really justifies that higher price? 165Hz DEFINITELY isn't it! I'm waiting on the TFT Central review before I pass final judgement though, but I haven't seen much to get overly excited about lately.

I'll help by translating it for you if google translate isn't up to par, which it never is imo.

Baksidan är fasad och formad i vad som ska vara en gamer-anpassad profil. Enligt Asus är det också en passiv kylning av G-Sync-modulen bakom denna form. Tydligen ska möjligheten till 165 Hz få G-Sync-modulen att blir varmare än normalt.

The backside is shaped to have an supposedly gamer adjusted profile. According to Asus it's also a passive cooling solution of the G-Sync module that's behind its shape. Apparently the possibility to achieve 165 Hz will result in the G-Sync module heating up more than it normally would.

I'll ask around if they've added a heatsink to the module, but I doubt the'll respond on the weekend.

Thanks, that's what I got with Chrome translation and also why it seems to be an addition the pg278q didn't have. That would be another selling point to many with the presumption that the gsync module was failing in the pg278q due to heat. I for one wouldn't even use 165hz, but would enjoy extra peace of mind of both the added cooling solution and an updated gsync module.

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

Image quality. PLS and IPS are far superior to AHVA in that regard.

Besides, I thought it was common knowledge by now that once you get north of 100Hz it's diminishing returns. There's a BIG and very obvious difference between 60Hz and 75Hz, and then up to 100Hz... buy beyond that it falls off significantly. And at the price the PG279Q is, I don't think it's worth it. Doesn't seem to offer anything the Acer XB270HU doesn't, even though that's fugly as hell and I don't want it anywhere near me. I may just end up opting for the Acer X34 21:9 instead... 100Hz and more 'wow' factor, or seeing how the Asus PG348Q shapes up when it's released.

No. It was never common knowledge. Because it's not true. If you play at 144Hz with GSYNC and the frame rate drops to 110fps...you will definitely notice it. For games like Assassin's Creed or The Witcher, even 80Hz GSYNC is fine. Because there's not a lot of fast movement on screen. But get into a racing game or an FPS game, and it becomes hard to play. It increases your input lag, which means slower reaction times, and more of a disconnect between what you're trying to do and what you see happening.

This 144Hz display is so bad that when I moved my 90Hz Korean IPS to my work station (would be 120Hz...but uses an older AMD card that can't go above 90Hz right now. Doing a rebuild in a week), I find it hard to use even when doing office work. Mouse tracking is significantly delayed. Animations aren't as smooth. Just super frustrated with it. That's why I'm going to pick up the 165Hz for my gaming PC, and move the 144Hz to my work computer.

I'd be all over 21:9 monitors...if they had at least 120Hz GSYNC. At 100Hz, it's still too slow for FPS games. Think about it. The Asus 165Hz display will be 65% faster than the 100Hz 21:9 monitor. If you can't see the difference...well...I also know some people who can't tell the difference between DVD and Bluray. Just because they can't see it, doesn't mean I can't. wink.gif

Ask anywhere. blurbusters, monitortest forums, or even Vega who people here know as a display expert. I have 3 Korean IPS monitors (well...2 IPS, 1 PLS) that I compared to the XB270HU that I have. It's quite sad when I have them side by side. I don't think anyone has ever claimed that AHVA was equal to IPS. Just that it was similar to it. Which is true. AHVA is much better than TN, which I would never use.

You're comparing a GAMER monitor which happens to have an IPS to actual IPS monitors not designed with gaming in mind.
