To be honest this month is the first time I've loaded up Starcraft 2 on this machine, last time I played it was in 2013! The only other game thats giving me this kind of framerate problem is Total War Warhammer and at least G-sync works properly there.
I am running at 1440p. Could your GPU be throttling due to temps while overclocked? That was my issue with some games in the past, the voltage to my GPU + core clock would just be all over the place due to "GPU boost". Now I always run custom BIOS. My voltage remains steady and doesn't throttle while under load and also decreases as it should when idle, as does the core clock. I use a manual overclock. In fairness, my card is a Hybrid so I have far more headroom vs. stock cooling. Just thinking out loud, it may help you. You can run a custom BIOS on a stock card in order to keep a steady voltage and eliminate GPU boost even at stock settings.

I received my 3 of these. I've been lurking this thread for a long time and decided on these over the Asus because of QC. March 2016 batch. I don't notice bleed since when I move my head, the spots go away. I need to get used to IPS glow but it really doesn't bother me that it exists. Especially not at this picture quality.

I have one defect on one of the panels and that is a cluster of stuck green pixels that are visible on black and barely visible on red/blue. I was able to massage some of them out but there's a stubborn one. Unfortunately, it's near the middle of the screen so I've started my replacement via Amazon. Even if it wasn't, I expect pixel perfect at $800.

Other than that, The experience of playing a game in surround at 144Hz/Gsync coming from 1080 60Hz TN monitors was life changing. More-so even than the first time I fired up a game via surround/eyefinity. I can't go back to 60Hz so I'm prepared to RMA this monitor as many times as I need to to get a pixel perfect sample. Ha.

How is the white uniformity on your monitors? Do any of them appear to be darker towards the sides/edges of the screen?

I told someone a page or two back that I'd post pictures of my panel at brightness levels similar to theirs for comparison. Here we go:

On a white screen:

At 0% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At 10% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At 50% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At 100% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


On a red screen:

At 0% brightness: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


My panel seems to be darker along the left edge than other areas of the screen. For instance, if I have a window open in Windows Explorer and have the window snapped to the left side of the screen, the navigation pane to the left side of that window may seem like a somewhat dullish grey when in fact the entire window itself should be white.

Is that normal?

Is there some kind of FAQ with all tips and tricks for Acer XB271HU explained? Including ICC profiles, debug menu etc.

Bought this monitor, a decent one (November 2015 batch, only one small blurry particle of dust and glow/BLB looks like not irritant), but now don't know what to do with it and how configure for the best experience.

I uninstalled and reinstalled everything and switched to EVGA Precision XOC for a per voltage point overclock. Seems to have helped with smoothness. Another G-sync question, should V-Sync in drivers be left on or turned off?

Just curious if users here experience the same thing. Since I connected my screen via DP and enabled G-Sync my screens starts flickering and showing artifacts when i'm launching games.
Especially on CS: GO the screen goes wild. I've red alot already on other forums. Still I can't figure out if it is a hardware failure or a bug with G-Sync that will hopefully be solved with an Nvidea driver update.

Right when the game starts? Yeah same thing here, i think its just a side effect of g-sync kicking in and the displays refresh rate changing.

Yes, when the game is starting up. It is like in this video:

Yep I see the same thing. Clearly is caused by g-sync starting up. I wouldn't imagine its anything to worry about unless it starts infringing on gameplay.

I haven't seen one but here are some rules of thumb:

  • Relying on someone else's ICC profile isn't... reliable. While it may be a perfect calibration for the person who created it, it will differ per monitor. Best to calibrate it yourself, ColorMunki display colorimeter is good for the price.
  • The vast majority of games ignore ICC profiles. Thus, if you calibrate your monitor, use ReShade TuningPalette for games.
  • "Normal" is the best Overdrive setting.
  • If you can maintain 120 FPS or more in a game without drops, use 120 Hz ULMB and triple buffered V-Sync (and if the game has an FPS limiter, set it to 118 or around there).
  • If you can't do the above, use G-SYNC at either 144 Hz or an overclocked refresh rate.
  • In G-SYNC mode, either leave V-Sync in NVIDIA Control Panel enabled (default) or if you disable it, use a global FPS limiter to just below your refresh rate (142 or so if using 144 Hz, 162 or so if using 165 Hz).
