Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 35  

post #341 of 1177
It's not 144 Hz but Samsung does have a native 100 Hz panel in development.

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/monitor_panel_parts.htm (click 32-49 size)

Personally I don't think there's much of a difference between 100->144 so I'd go for the Samsung over the AUO. That said, I'm in the camp that prefers IPS - it's better for all-around use in my opinion. If all I did was game then VA would be my choice however.

My guess - we may not ever see a >100 Hz IPS from LG. They are quickly moving things to OLED.... their TV lineup this year has a total of 4 different OLED model tiers. These developments going to spill over to the monitor side at some point, and I don't think it's far off. I bet we see an 60 Hz OLED monitor from LG next year, then as other manufactures buy their panels we will see something more gaming focused, probably in 2018.

Yeah, I guess LG is looking at OLED monitors more than the same resolution with higher refresh rates. That Samsung will be Freesync, however they are taking a long time to announce any details on it.

We might see a LG OLED this year, I expect it will be 2018 till LG make a 21.9 panel, then 2019 for a 21.9 100hz panel.

Also 4K 100hz is not possible on DP 1.3

Most modern VA panels have viewing angles that are surprisingly good, and easily sufficient for a 35" ultrawide.

Bandwidth calculators say it is possible with 8-bit color depth at least?

Three, I use my system very long hours each day, more for business than for gaming, so the TUV flicker free , ultra low blue light certification, is a plus, compared to the flicker free only cert on the x34. This may not seem important to new gamers, but when you have been sitting in front of computers for over 30 years like I have, you'll start to understand how important your eye sight is and maintaining a healthy metabolism.

1. Where did you find out about the different refresh rates over HDMI of the X34 vs the Asus? I only know that both monitors have a HDMI 1.4 port so refresh rates on both should be 60hz?

2. The X34 is PWM free but also have Blue Light Filters as well (4 modes).

Did that take out the overhead, as there was a massive discussion about this problem

Also do you have a link

For all you in the US, which stores are expected to take pre-orders or sell right away the PG348Q? Which stores usually sell it sooner, Amazon? Newegg?

Here's one. I'm not the most knowledgeable person about this though. According to this 120 Hz fits within DP1.3 specifications as well.

No, I do not think we are taking out the overhead for Display port

Newegg is usually the quickest in the US. Amazon is probably the slowest when it comes to new monitor releases, they didn't start stocking the X34 until late Nov.

This is from today's press release http://rog.asus.com/466782016/gaming-monitors/asus-republic-of-gamers-announces-swift-pg348q-curved-monitor/

Taipei, Taiwan (1st February, 2016) — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced ROG Swift PG348Q, a 34-inch Ultra-Wide QHD (3440 x 1440) curved monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio for panoramic gaming. The 2016 CES Innovation Award-winning Swift PG348Q has a frameless design, and features the new ROG Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper color scheme and built-in LED effects. In addition, Swift PG348Q features a 100Hz fresh rate and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology to give users incredibly smooth and fast gameplay.

Swift PG348Q will be available from February, and joins the 27-inch ROG Swift displays (PG278Q, PG279Q, and PG27AQ) to diversify the ROG gaming monitor line-up as ASUS looks to strengthen its position as a worldwide leader in the high-end gaming monitor market.

"ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q will be available worldwide from February. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information."

It also looks like this will be less curved than the x34. 3800r vs 2000r.
