Sure it smooth but don't know if you realized the mouse movements. Check it out and you will see they are not smooth and the lower refresh rate the more input lag. problem is that mouse is not smooth to me enough on 120hz so this is obviously game engine issue, not g-sync. This one works perfectly here.

I've done another with G-Sync off and it is waaaaayyy smoother thumb.gif

The Witcher 3 on the Asus PG279Q 165hz IPS G-SYNC OFF




.... and finally a bit of COD on exactly the same settings as above

Mindfactory now has no stock and there is no delivery date - 'Ohne Liefertermin'. This is slightly unusual for such a new product. I sent mine back and I guess many others did too so perhaps there is an investigation taking place. It says they sold 230 of these in the last 2 weeks (including mostly preorders).

Most games felt smoother to me with G-Sync OFF which is the exact opposite of what should happen.

Games such as: Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor, The Witcher 3 and Mad Max.

@Benny. I have only been gaming on TN-panels, (120/144hz) and I can't stand the input lag nor do I find it acceptable. But you're right, it won't matter when you're playing RPGs. The G-Sync range on this monitor is 35 to 165hz, but between 35 to 55 fps it is basically unplayable whether G-Sync is on or off, but more so with G-Sync ON.

I honestly didn't think it was playable, but I mentioned previously that my monitors G-sync module might be faulty. It would be a damn shame if that's the case, because I really like just about everything else with my PG279Q.

He is not playing at 165 fps....where do you see fps measure in his video? If you look at smoothness you can see that this is not anywhere 165 fps. Besides he only said that he plays Witcher 3 at 165 Hz, not fps. Means he plays it a 165 Hz monitor and/or 165 Hz setting (means overclock mode turn on). Even if you put everything on mid settings you will get about 100 FPS max with many things turn off.

When you guts flex and bend the bezel a bit, do you see the blowing change at all? Do you see more or less if you slightly twist the bezel? If so, it can be caused by hardware rather than the display itself.
That's definitely a thing wink.gif
When I push the back of my Dell U2312HM (IPS) monitor, It'll make the glow worse.
But you can't really loosen it up somehow.

I still find it amazing how a product was made available to purchase from vendors even before asus has any information posted up on their official website

Got the monitor. Seems to be a decent one with no dead pixels and only minor IPS glow in bottom right corner. I don't own a monitor calibrator-- Can anyone else post some settings on what looks good? What seems to be strange to me is that you can't save any custom settings profiles. You have to use one of their profiles, and adjust from there.

Edit: Actually the tweaking with this monitor is pretty strange. Each built in setting opens up different options you can tweak. Like on the default "racing mode" only contrast, brightness, and color temperature (warm, cold, neutral) can be set. In FPS mode an option to change the saturation opens up. In RGB mode the color temperature menu changes to give you the option to tweak the Red/Blue Green levels individually. It's sort of bizarre that each preset mode has different tweaking options. It's gonna take a while to fool around with it.

What's the best method to test colors if you don't own a calibration device? Just open up a picture, and play around till you like how it looks?

You can use the calibration tool in Windows smile.gif

What problems did you have with < 60FPS ? Was it laggy or what ? Because with G-sync the image seems smooth even in 50FPS. From 45 it is acceptable, however because of input lag it is not very usable... I think you had some problems with g-sync or with your computer itself.

Top right corner, besides minimap.... Also with g-sync you can play only at that refresh rate what your current fps is. So if you have 100FPS you run 100Hz, 70FPS run 70Hz and 45FPS runs 45Hz. And this is the main culprit. It's not problem of g-sync but physical limitations and we can't just overcome this. Low FPS is low FPS... You could use controller to ease the symptoms but I think you don't want to use controller on the PC. Also smoothness you have mentioned. You should realize that those YouTube videos are 30FPS so in real it looks completely different and much more smooth...

And you can play witcher in 165Hz of course with single GPU but not 1440p. Maybe 600p or 480p.... wink.gif

Just shot a bit of video of witcher 3 starting from desktop at 165hz
The start of the video picks up the glow in bottom right but I can barely see it in a pitch black room.
Get a bit idea of fps

The Witcher 3 on the Asus PG279Q with 165hz RPG mode
Nvidia GeForce EVGA GTX 980ti
Nvidia GeForce Experience OPTIMAL settings
G-SYNC ON


Thanks and you can find it when it's set up, just turn the screen vertically. Mine was manufactured in September.
