Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 68  

post #671 of 1177
Got my PG348Q today smile.gif)

No Dead / Stuck pixels, zero scan line at 100hz, no noticeable backlight bleed, but as its IPs a little glow, but extremely small just on the top left edge, and not really worth mentioning.

Looks like a got good one smile.gif

I've had to work today so haven't tested many games, I did run the Bioshock Infinite benchmark at 3440 x 1440 100hz in 4-way sli, and obviously I do take a hit in performance on the DX11 ultra test, but lowest was 55fps average was 90 fps, max was 500 but that's at fade in/out sections, 200fps seems to be the mark for most of the first test. This was around the 400fps mark on my 1920 x1220 monitor.

No problems getting the 100hz refresh rate. As long as there is something going on on screen the refresh toggle works every quickly.

Tested Metro Last Light, everything at ultra, was also averaging around 90fps.

Probably wont get a chance to test it out properly in games until the weekend

Not ideal but I don't plan on upgrading my Titans until pascal.

I haven't tested to see if a single Titan can achieve 100hz yet.

Very happy so far with the monitor smile.gif)

Low blue light setting is not bad, you can notice the difference in colour reproduction, but its very slight until level 4 which is unusable IMO.

Pai £999.95 for mine, definitely getting a second UltaWide :-)

I'll post some pics at the weekend.

CES we usually get the latest on monitors Mobo's etc, but the juicy info in GPU's doesn't usually surface until the GTC in April. I think that's when we will Know for sure about if Pascal is to be or not to be this year...

I'm actually really skeptical that we'll see games capable of pushing the PG348Q to its limits in 2 years. Even with 2x 980 Ti running on 1080p, the only recent (good-looking) game that can maintain 60fps is MGSV. Heck I'll even add Witcher 3 - with the caveat that Hairworks is off.

FO4 runs decent but there's plenty of framerate drops everywhere - not to mention the graphics don't even look great. (Does it even have SLI support yet?)

Batman: AK was a disaster port from the get-go - and no SLI support of course.

XCOM2 - you have to tone down the AA substantially to hit 60 fps, and it's still inconsistent. Proper SLI support would make a huge difference but who knows if/when that's gonna come around.

All in all we're really at the mercy of game studios, and unfortunately the market dictates that making a game that simply works across the platforms, PC/PS4/XBONE, is worth more than dedicating to a single one.

The other thing to factor in is, despite DP 1.3 being able to reach higher than 100hz on 3440x1440/4k, the first monitors to be released might not be aimed toward gamers and first iterations of those new models might have their own set of problems (look at the current lineup release of 3440x1440 monitors).

4K 100hz is not possible on DP 1.3, you can only get 95hz

Nice, should get mine on Friday now, with a report about the backlight bleed/IPS glow, if it has any dead pixels and if it reaches 100hz

Newegg is a little trickier, they tend to charge a "restocking fee" of like 10%.

Clarification - Amazon Proper Yes - Not the Amazon Marketplace. The Marketplace vendors can do whatever they want - charge you shipping and restocking fees. I was burned for $160+ dollars on a monitor return. My recommendation - do not buy anything of value through a Marketplace vendor!!!

If you try Witcher 3 Ultra Hairworks, you will get low FPS , what about coil whine and colour reproduction

Eagerly awaiting pics and more impressions ;-) sounds nice.

Correction - if an item is "shipped by Amazon" or "Fulfillment by Amazon" then it is subject to Amazon's return policy. Only if the Amazon Marketplace vendor does their own shipping do you have to worry about their individual return policy.

Depends on your definition of outdated smile.gif If 20-44 more hz make your monitor outdated then yes, the price could be steep. Because beside the higher refresh rate, the resolution will stay the same and most probably the panel technology too. Viable higher than 4k resolution monitors will probably coincide with DP 1.4 along with the implementation of affordable new panel tech like OLED.

Absolutely. For my purposes, 120hz+ is the goal (for 3d stereoscopic gaming), so even a 100hz panel would feel outdated as soon as a 120hz panel hit the market. Unfortunately, I waited so long for a 120hz 1440p panel that by the time it was a viable reality (for the past year or so), 4K is the thing now. lol

Anyway, we're in agreement, and until 120hz becomes a thing I'm happy as a clam with my Samsung 34", and following this thread to read all about what I missed out on. lol
