Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 32  

post #311 of 1177
This monitor looks awesome the only concern I have again is the use of the line "up to 100hz" does that mean this is going to have EXACTLY the same issues that the x34 had with hardly any of them being able to reach 100hz???

Glad I got the 4x Titan X's 2 of these bad boys together looks sweet.

Shame none of my four cards will have DP 1.3 boooo.

Oh no, don't tell me they have done that again... No guarantees to 100hz for that price? Hmmmmm, I'll be waiting for the 144hz widescreen 1.3dp panels later this his year.

Lol! Thanks for the info Kapparian... This helps support my decision to wait for the countless issues incoming.... It's x34 all over again sounds like. All the "dependent on" and "side effects" of over clocking....

I guess one should down our expectations for that PG348Q being better than Acer X34 in term of panel reliability once overclocked. By "side effects" I understand that they could not avoid X34 defects such as scanlines or screen flickering.
That means Asus only guarantee the display to run perfect at 60hz, everything up to 100hz is just a "bonus". This is exactly how Acer stated about X34 defects that occurs when display is overclocked.

I have had 5 Acer X34 and all of them were plagued with scanlines, I don't think it will be that different with PG348Q, sadly redface.gif

The following symptoms are normal with the monitor:

• When the same image is displayed for hours, an afterimage of the previous
screen may remain after switching the image. The screen will recover slowly or
you can turn off the Power Switch for hours.
• When the screen becomes black or flashes, or cannot work anymore, contact
your dealer or service center to fix it. Do not repair the screen by yourself! (***? apparently monitor doesn't work is normal?)

• Turbo key has 7 options: 60,75,85,85,90,95,100 Hz.

• Over Clocking supported GPUs: NVIDIA Maxwell GPU Graphics Card like GeForce GTX TITAN X,
GeForce GTX 980 Ti, GeForce GTX 980, GeForce GTX 970, GeForce GTX 960, GeForce GTX TITAN Z,
GeForce GTX TITAN Black, GeForce GTX TITAN, GeForce GTX 780 Ti, GeForce GTX 780, GeForce
GTX 750 Ti, GeForce GTX 750, GeForce GTX 745 (OEM). For other GPUs, please contact the
manufactures to see if they are compatible.

• Please note that Over Clocking function/performance depends on the GPUs or contents displayed.
ASUS only provides this function. The performance or any side effect after activation is not
guaranteed. (what do you mean "side effect" ?)

I am no ASUS apologist, but here's my take on this:

the screen becoming blank or flashing is a warning not to attempt repairs yourself and someone goofed and translated it to sound like that was probably going to happen sooner or later (which, in general it is).

Overclocking has always been GPU I/O capability dependent.

Overclocking refresh rate can and will put an increased strain on your GPU, so they don't want to be liable for that.

as i understand its guranteed to run @100hz if you have maxwell gpu?

That's not encouraging at all. Asus is not holding any responsibility to the overclock. In other words, if you have any issues > 60 Hz, it's not their problem.

Why is it we cannot have IPS monitors doing 100hz or 144hz guaranteed? who is Samsung targeting with there VA monitors at 144hz with no G-sync? who uses such high refresh rate other than gaming?

looks to be a much better monitor then that trash x34 acer put out. where can you preorder in the usa?
