Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 45  

post #441 of 1177
All 4K displays are only 60 Hz so I do not think they give a better overall experience. It's a trade off. For me, higher refresh rates make more of an impact on the gaming experience, but everyone's different.

I read one line saying when he compared 2715q with it, the difference is clear and obviously the 4k is much better, so that helped me make decision on getting a 4k monitor from now on.

He didn't say the 5k Dell was better once. He said the DPI felt low because he was used to the 5k screen. He later said he used the dell for certain games that only support 16:9 and benefit from the higher resolution over a higher refresh rate, in his opinion. He added it would be nice to have higher resolutions in this format one day, or rather, that we would.

We aren't here for just a 21:9 monitor. We are here for a 21:9, 1440p monitor with the highest refresh rate possible... And g-sync.

To each their own though, enjoy.

Not only higher refresh rates but also the extra view that 21:9 resolutions give you can have a huge impact on the overall experience. 4k is nothing but a 1080p with more pixels.

EDIT: and a 60hz limit

The ASUS PG348Q will have the same colour accuracy or better than the ACER Predator X34, it cannot be worse, as they use the same panel

It certainly can be worse, prior to calibration. ASUS do not provide adjustable gamma settings and they have been known to mess their gamma targeting up on other models.

That is where you calibrate it then, still the same panel, you can change the gamma in the NVIDIA Control Panel

With the Nvidia Control Panel you can simply displace the gamma curve left or right. Proper fine-tuning requires a colorimeter/spectrophotometer or other similar device. Or preferably a good out of the box setup (which the PG348Q may have). There is a certainly a lot more to a monitor than just the panel used.

I think there is not going to be much difference with colour accuracy between these two monitors (unless LG has made a new version of the panel) I highly doubt ASUS will make a bad out of the box setup, due to the cost of the monitor.

The panel used (if it is the same as the ACER Predator X34) will have the same specifications, ASUS can do bad calibration, however you can just calibrate it using these devices.

So China has released this monitor, I cannot find more people with the monitor

I would not be surprised if it has fixed gamma and no options to change it eg. PG279Q
