[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 314

post #3131 of 9401
Haha its because the monitor itself is decent when its problem free. Also there's nothing really on the market so nothing else to choose from.

If mine is faulty again when I try it later I might try once more than that's enough for me.

Hey. I ordered from komputronik.pl.

There minor glow/bleed on down right corner, but it is very little and I assume it is due to controls of panel being implemented in this place.

Here are pictures. Second one is actually closer to what it really looks like, first one is little overshot even with camera- mind my phone does not have best camera.





They were took during the day so I have to still check glow during pure night, so I will post pictures then also.

But so far- so good biggrin.gif

It's still the middle of the day here and it's very bright so I can't really tell in terms of BLB or glow yet, but I don't have to pack it up for return untill tomorrow morning so I'll keep it out and try later!

So far monitors without this sticker were mostly fine while most of those with sticker had bad pixels/dust and bleed. It could be simple human error.

If you country is getting first, new batch, like mine yesterday- you can have high hopes for perfect screen.

That is only my theory but yea.

PS. Date of my monitor- October 2015.

My second monitor arrived today with no QC sticker had dust and a dead pixel so I think your theory is a little askew

With the 165hz overclock, do you select 165hz refresh rate in windows / games or just 144hz and it just OC's it to 165hz on the panel? I very much doubt it makes any difference anyway but thought I'd check I am doing things right when I try mine later on

you activate the OC in OSD and your monitor will restart itself. after restart you can select 165hz in nvidia control panel as your default refresh rate.

Personally i run on the desktop at 120hz so the gfx card fully down clocks. The monitor then jumps up to 165 by default on launching a game.

Little about performance. I have single 980 Ti Gigabyte G1, OC to 1520 on air.

Witcher 3- with everything in options set to max game keeps 55-65 FPS, dropoing sometimes to 50s in new DLC areas (Hearts of Stone) which are just poorly optimized (since there is literally nothing there that would make fps drop like that). Only thing that is not max are hairworks AA, down from x8 to x4 becasuse in cutscenes where Geralts head is close to screen FPS were droping crazy even on 1080p. I don't see difference though anyway.

Game feels super smooth even if fps are droping 60-50. G-Sync works WONDERFUL!

So if anyone has single 980Ti- that is monitor that will push it to its limits ^^. Although Witcher 3 is super demanding game due to open world.

So far there is only a small bleed at down right corner, but my wife IPS and my other one also have it there (controls...) so I am fine with it.

I will try later maybe to loose chasis a bit there, will see. So far I am happy ^^

Well after being sent out in the first batch from OverclockersUK on Friday, with the 'QC passed' sticker, I'm finally up and running. First impressions were good. Everything packaged well, until I removed the bubble wrap from the screen. Don't these people wear gloves when putting monitors together?! Fingers mark and smears all round the edge of the screen.. and yes it is brand new and not previously opened.
Anyway after firing her up was initially impressed. That soon changed though. 2 dead pixels on the right side and dirt bottom centre. TBH whilst gaming I'd probably not really notice these too much, but the bottom right glow and top left bleed gets annoying. No lottery win for me after paying for it a month ago!
Why does it always seem to be on the right? Being a noob on these things it almost makes you think its due to the monitor controls in the bottom right.
