Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 21  

post #201 of 1177
Hi guys!
I'm signing in on this Thread because i'm super hyped about the release of the new PG348Q.
I'm waiting for this monitor since they announced it and waited to buy a similar one.

Few days ago ASUS wrote a post (as all of you know) about some more specification.

Now, I have a 980ti and i want this display because of G-SYNC, so i.e. when playing if I have 85 FPS the monitor will display 85FPS, 90 will display 90, 70 --> 70 and so on.
As we know, the G-Sync Syncronize the fps betwen the monitor and the Video Card, so that there will not be the "stuttering" and make the game run smoother.

My question now is:
What the proupose of having it at only 60 or 100 FPS? What happend if my game runs in certain situation at 60fps and then with a change of scenario it run at 80. The G-Sync will be totally useless!!mad.gif
Tell me that i'm wrong please.

Thank you, and sorry for my bad english.

Gsync was first made to adapt frequency to fps when they drop, such as 30 to 60Hz range.
Most gsync/freesync monitors are capped at 60Hz.
Going beyond is icing on the cake, as 60Hz is already enough for most people.

This wait is killing me, did it for several months on the X34, now doing it again. Going back to a 27" IPS 60hz with no G-sync has been rough. GTA looks so studdery now. My fingers and toes are crossed this monitor won't have the scanline issue like the X34 has.

So, why have a g-sync monitor (that will cost you 200 to 400 € more than a no g-sync monitor) when you can buy a normal 60hz monitor and enable v-sync that will block your fps at 60?

If this monitor will have g-sync locked at 60 or 100hz, for me ( and lot of you) , it's totally not worth buying, this thing is driving me crazy, i've forced myself to wait buying a new monitor for more than 1 year now....

Once again, sorry for my bad english.

V-Sync is one of the worst settings in a game, it gives you input lag

Why would G-Sync being locked at 60hz or 100hz matter, why would you want to run it at 75hz

I want it to syncronize the fps my video card is generating to the fps my monitor is displaying.
As you probably know, a game runs at different fps, if you look far away, more object need to be rendered, and the fps will drop, if you look closely to a wall the fps will increase.

A gamer usually want the maximun fps his computer can generate, so if my pc is running a game at 75fps, the monitor displays 75fps, without stuttering, and the fps change like every second dependig how much you stress you computer.

Why lock it at 60? or 100?

It's difficult that a pc will run a game at 100 fps (take rainbow 6, GTA5 , or all that current gen games that push our computers at their limits) in 95% of the cases they will not reach 100 fps; but if they reach 80-90fps, with a not locked g-sync, i would see true 80 fps without stuttering, and 90 fps is a big different in comparsion with 60.

I don't buy a 1300 + € monitor for playing minecraft at 100fps...

Wow... OK dudes, gonna clear this all up for you because I don't want you spending tons of money on something you won't appreciate. The refresh rate is NOT LOCKED at 60, or 100, or 75, or whatever (this goes against the very nature of G-SYNC!). But the refresh rate CAN BE CAPPED. If you do not overclock your monitor, you will be CAPPED at 60hz. If you flip this "magic switch", you will be CAPPED at 100hz (allegedly).

Thank you a lot, you made my day, this was the answer i wanted to hear.
Thank for clear that up for me!

now i'm gonna get this bad boy at dayone, hope only that it does not have all the problems that the x34 have.
I'm gonna buy it on amazon, so if i dont get a perfect one, i can request another one.

OK, need to clarify.
If fps > refresh rate then you have tearing. Solution is vsync.
If fps < refresh rate then you have stuttering. Solution is gsync. (Or lowering game's graphic settings)
