[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 406

post #4051 of 9401
Sorry to see you got another faulty one Benny89. Gutted for you mate but same old story with both of mine. The glow / BLB was just unacceptable. Hated it and not prepared to spend £750 on it in this state.

I am either going to order the DELL today or the Acer x34 (uses a LG Panel) but even that i've seen issues reported with glow / blb.

Running my BENQ 2420T now, i'm not unhappy with it, i just miss the goodies like 1440p and G-Sync. Here is where the DELL comes in. It has all that and in the owners thread, only 1 person had a faulty one and it due to pixel inversion and a thunderbug got inside the screen.

This thread is riddled with faults and then the odd person who doesnt follow comes in and throws in a comment about how awsome it is and they have a pre order. If they bothered to read though, they might realise you have as much chance as winning this lottery as you do the real lottery. Its virtually non existant.

TN is not bad in my eyes. Atleast you don't get glow etc and viewing angles are no issue for me as i sit directly in front of it. Its half the price of the x34 and would probably buy me some time until the technology really develops and we have monitors with OLED or better IPS Panels.

No that is not what I meant, but surely shops taking a huge amount of returns is going to have a knock on effect, otherwise they are going to be losing money overall on the product. But with these screens the profit margin is probably so high that they can afford a few returns and still make a profit. For example does 144hz Gsync IPS really cost much more to make than a normal 1440p 60hz IPS? Not really except for the Gsync licensing, certainly not double the price of some 27" 1440p 60hz screens you can get for £360 vs £720.

Gl man, i hope you will find 1 keeper from those 2. Although I personally woulda waited for acer 271 and then decided between 279/271. but lets hope Lord GabeN has mercy with you and blessed those monitors before they got shipped to you. wink.gif

Does the PG279Q still have that increase power draw issue when using it at 120Hz or higher?

I can check with wattmeter. Follow me later...

Off note remark
Pcper did a study showing high refresh rate higher gpu idle voltage.

Most of us knew this after owning a gsync monitor for a year.
So obviously pcper
1. Doesnt game on a gsync 144hz monitor cause if they did they would have noticed it.
2. Really never read forums on the issues most ppl face with gsync with how many times nvidia broke the drivers. N refixed etc. current drivers still broken in certain certain scenarios.
3.issue of settings change between enabling/disabling gsync with global vsync n no scaling on gpu to overide programs.

Just saying. Will definately get this when its out end of the month here.

kk followed. All I'm worried about is if my 980 ti's will sound like a vacuum while sitting at the desktop / web browsing at 144Hz. Here's a line graph below. Test was done by PCper Second thought actually that's like double the power for just sitting at desktop. Power bill will def go up with the PG279Q.

Thats weird, why does it do that? Is that idle power draw? Almost double idle power draw at 144 vs 120hz ?! Is that because the Nvidia card is not working at proper idle clocks?

Yeah dude its double power draw at just idle. Its actually pretty insane... They tested this on the MG279Q with the same hardware 980 Ti and it was good no increased power draw. It's got to be the new gsync module or something exclusive to the PG279Q.
