But maybe my Dell is just saturated. I can't tell.

The Dell U3014 has a wide gamut backlight, according to TFTCentral.

You could immediately spot the use of the wide gamut GB-LED backlight as well, with colours looking more saturated and vivid than a normal standard gamut screen. Reds and greens in particular looked more vivid and more exaggerated. This is common for wide gamut screens of course. Some people actually prefer the more saturated colours for things like gaming and movies, even if it's at the cost of accuracy.

Ahh, I guess I should have read the entire article, thank you. That definitely seems to be the case.

After using them side-by-side, I think I prefer the colors on my Asus. Although, sometimes the vivid colors look really nice on the Dell. Guess I'm happy to have both!


Another quip I have with this monitor though. The thin bezel is fantastic, but I'm so sad about the on-screen black border around the entire display. It's misleading frown.gif

When you hip fire with a pistol and it just gives you more of a chance when noscope with sniper. Oh also when you play hardcore you have no crosshair so also another reason. It's just to big for me so I don't use it.

I got myself also the xb271hu to compare it with my pg279q. I honsestly don't see any difference. the OSD and design of the asus is by far better though.


anyway..about Gsync again, I honestly can't even see any difference with gsync on/off

is capping the frames with a standard monitor at 120hz/120fps not he same as gsync? I know gsync will adjust the hz to e.g. 70 if the frames drop that far down...but anyway?

Yes, the Dell actually vastly oversaturates colors (wide gamut monitors should be used ONLY if you need them for work purposes), as all consumer content (games, movies) is designed for standard gamut.

He can switch back to sRGB.

Isn't the point of GSync to help under powered graphics cards perform smoothly and acceptably in demanding games? If you can't see the difference, maybe your GPU is powerful enough already and doesn't require Gsync for that particular game?

My understanding is that it also helps with stuttering and tearing. Like, before I moved to this monitor, despite getting 50-60fps in Witcher 3, it would stutter and tear quite often.

Correct. The ideal situation is to have frame rate and refresh rate synchronized. G-SYNC and FreeSync do this without most of the downsides of V-Sync, and allow you to have such a synchronization with a varying frame rate (which is what happens when your PC isn't powerful enough). So the main thing is the removal of tearing, but it does remove some microstutters too.

If your frame rate is through the roof, ULMB + triple buffered V-Sync with a 118 FPS cap or so is the best option.

I have a pg279q on order as we speak. How can i tell if it has the newest firmware version once I receive it? Would like to avoid the fullscreen/window switch issue if possible. biggrin.gif
