[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 325

post #3241 of 9394
The FPS counter works fine... it shows the refresh rate when Gsync is off because that's the refresh rate it's running at.

It's supposed to show the fps, hence why it's called an fps counter and not a refresh counter. It doesn't work with G-Sync OFF.

It is quite a misleading name for it. The monitor does not know the frame rate being outputted by the GPU - it is completely blind to that. What it does know, though, is the refresh rate and hence also the frame rate when G-SYNC is enabled. It is actually a refresh rate indicator that happens to work as a frame rate indicator with G-SYNC enabled.

If the monitor is running at 165Hz with Gsync off, the GPU sends it 165 frames per second regardless of the FPS the game is running at. The value it shows you is therefore correct. This is obviously a feature meant to be used with Gsync only, I highly doubt that the monitor would have a way of knowing the game FPS without it.

I don't think that glow will improve in next batches. Check old XB- the QC improved over many months but bleed/glow is still there. I think this is just how this panel work. I just don't understant why it is always right side....

Well, the only dark games that I play are AAA games that well- are dark by themself. Like Thief, Dishonored, Dark Souls. But I don't play horror games etc.

I think that we will have to live with glow. I don't belive next batches will have it better. Maybe slightly but looking at XB that is just how it is...

Probably on right side of the monitors is some hardware that is not on left side and that is why pressure is probably bigger there (as chasis need to look clean so they have to pressure right side little more) and so we have a bleed.

I am nowhere a specialist- that is just my assumption, since old XB also had much bigger glow/bleed on right side.

Apart from that- monitor image quality just blowing my mind. This bleed is only thing that keeps it away from being perfect display.

Interesting. Now that we know the PG isn't using the same display as the Acer, there actually is a chance the new Acer might have better QC.

They haulted production of the XB270HU to make the 271, so maybe they're going to get newer displays fabricated during the hault with better QC results.

Might be worth waiting for the XB271HU on my end. It's supposed to come out in November as well.

I can confirm this. Mine says 60 when using HDMI.

That makes sense, but there's a button on the monitor that can be used to show the refresh rate and also switch it on the fly so to speak. So, therefore it has no use if G-Sync is OFF, or better yet, it's an useless function when G-Sync is OFF.

@PCM2. I have seen your Swift PG278Q OSD showcase on youtube, and picked up a thing or two early on from it. Cheers! smile.gif

What makes you think that the 271 is not exactly the same panel as the PG279Q? Both are just the same "narrow bezel" version of the 270HU panel?

I believe the glow perceived is due to the angle your eyes subtend to the gate of the pixels. Rotate your screen to portrait and see if the glow pattern shifts. Mine are both wall mounted so cant.
