[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 848

post #8471 of 9394
Extremely satisfied with my PG279Q

This screen is amazing and there is no backlight bleed as most people reported and no dead pixels. Only able to spot 2 very small "glow" on top right corner in black background / dark room

Asus may have upped their QC or I won the lottery I guess.

Batch is March 2016 s/n G3LMQS0xxxxx

May i ask where did you order it? I want to buy 4 of them but don't know where it should be recommended to order in the US. : /

Does anyone have met weird issue such as not really flickering/blurry text but i have some letters that appeared fading (half crunched) or bold character?

Thanks

How is this monitor for fps games like overwatch and battlefield? Right now I'm using an Asus VG248qe will I notice a huge difference in performance wise?

In performance? No. The performance is related to your PC, especially to your graphics card.
The pg279q (and the Acer xb271hu) has minor input lag. Gsync helps when you can't reach 100fps and more.
It's your decision if it's worth the money.

I play OW regularly and there's basically nothing to complain about monitors wise. However, the game itself causes system crashes when I started using the GTX 1070 and turned the fps limit off for some odd reason. Never happened with the GTX 780Ti, so there's that. I set the fps limit to 165 with rivaturner nowadays, and I haven't crashed since.

Guys, I just got the Acer PG279Q; it arrived today. AIDA64 reports "Manufacture date: Week 6 / 2016". I'm hoping February '16 wasn't a particularly problematic batch or something? Also, I noticed very minor BLB at the top right corner, and also the slightest amount at the bottom left corner, but I'm overall very pleased with this display. No dead pixels either!

I've ordered a gaming desktop to go along with this monitor but it'll be a while before it arrives. I was wondering if there's anything I need to specifically check and ensure is well and good, before I might run out of my return window? With my current laptop, I don't seem to be able to go higher than 1440p @ 120Hz but that's probably the cap on the integrated graphics card on this laptop. Is this something I need to ensure works on the monitor or can I safely assume that that's gonna work per standard?

Got my panel last week--January 2016 manufactured date. It looks great to me!

Has anyone had any issues with mixed refresh rates though? I am running two Dell U2412m 60hz monitors on either side of the PG279Q with my new GTX 1080 and the older monitors seem to have picked up some input lag/stuttering when watching videos or scrolling through web pages. It is definitely not just a comparison thing now that I see it side by side with the 165hz...it's worse than it was before.

I have tried enabling scaling with GPU on the secondary monitors but haven't had a chance to test it out yet...i will also try plugging one of the secondary monitors into my onboard graphics to see if that makes a difference.

any input?

No Lag so far. It's amazing monitor. Try to do the same type of stuff when only having the ASUS monitor connected and share results. Also how does it react when playing normal games?

the ASUS monitor itself isn't lagging--it's performing perfectly from what i can tell. I have it overclocked to 165hz, although i'm not sure if i should leave it there or go back to 144hz. the lag is showing on my secondary 60hz monitors.
