Man, hope this is not the truth. On TN swift I had my clocks down on 120Hz so it does not draw no more than standard. This graph may indicate that on 120Hz card doesn't downclock for some reason, didn't have they connected another monitor? This could means also driver issues. Hard to say...

Ure good.

Well if I wind up buying the PG279Q I'll have to ask you for some instructions on how to do that. Although I'm sure I can eventually figure it out.

144Hz is normal, it's because pixel clock is too high at 144Hz therefore GPU needs more power to draw at this refresh rate. But at 120Hz should downclock as cstk1 said. Anyway, I will check with power meter..

It's easy, you just set up your refresh rate at 120hz with button on a monitor. And in NVidia control panel in Manage 3D setting set your frequency to 144Hz. So any type 3D app is detected, it switch rate to 144Hz.

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.

Ah ok, so I shouldn't really be worried then.

Yeah I'll just do what cstkl1 said, and set desktop to 120Hz, because they do say it starts to ramp up when you go higher than 120Hz.

Yes, that's pretty normal. It's controlled by NVidia drivers. In the past drivers did not raise clocks even at 144Hz but there were some issues as there was not enough power to drive so they've implemented this feature. Well, I don't like it but what can we do smile.gif

I just did this on my pg278q and it's running games so much smoother with gtx 980strix. That's why you gotta keep reading these forums you never know what you'll catch! biggrin.gif

Will amazon ever get this monitor argh, I hope they get it on the 11th, with a monitor like this, which is definately likely to have deal braking problems, I really want to purchase from somewhere I know will not give me grief about returning, which AFAIK is only Amazon, are scan any good for returns?

Good luck man.

I've just ordered the Dell. I have decided spending less than half of the x34 and avoiding problems like IPS glow is the way to go for me. Still has all the other goodies like 1440p, 144hz, G-Sync

Will let you all know how it turns out and my thoughts on picture quality vs the PG279Q i had.
