Acer XF270HU 1440 IPS 144 Hz Adaptive Sync Thread - Page 32

post #311 of 848
It should be minimal blur between IPS and TN, 5ms xb270hu Acer, BenQ xl2730z 3ms.

Acer xf270hu HDMI 2.0 working overdrive. I'm between this and the mg279q, but a shame that the review has not xf270hu to see response time and input lag.

The XF270HU have huge amounts of Blur, not sure why, it gets much worse when using FreeSync.

You tried to HDMI if the continuous blur.

Whats the point of using HDMi when you cant use freesync? Freesync is supposed to be a pretty major selling point of this monitor and with freesync active you cant change the OD setting.

Acer rep quote: "Sorry if I was not clear. Overdrive is 'tuned' with Freesync enabled on the Displayport. This is the reason Overdrive is not configurable in the OSD. It's already working."

Which is just a nice way of saying overdrive and Freesync dont work together on this monitor so you're going to be seeing a lot of blur. Really dont know why they have such a compromise when the BenQ XL2730Z can do OD + Freesync just fine even though it first couldnt and needed a firmware update. The MG279Q also has working overdrive and freesync. I'd say the Asus is the better buy if you can hack the freesync range to 57-144hz instead of 35-90hz.

There are people who change GPU and are not interested in FreeSync.

In my case I have an Nvidia, I wonder if the blur is so wrong with HDMI .

Sadly I didn't, I can't attest to its performance over HDMI, I returned it after just a week of use, I couldn't stand the blur, rocking a XL2730Z and wont look back.

There seems to be a discrepancy here between the TN and IPS high refresh rate FreeSync monitors. The TN ones have bigger FreeSync range (although with LFC 56-144 Hz is fine, 35-90 Hz still sucks though), and no overdrive issues. The MG279Q does have pretty good overdrive though, while the FS2735's seems more flawed overall. I wonder how the ViewSonic will compare. The G-SYNC ones have no such issues and faster response times (and less input lag).

So he didn't report anything with how it gamed that was bad and had other monitors experience he compared it to. I think the most important thing to take away is Freesync range 40-144Hz which is sweet for IPS. smile.gif

Just read through this thread. The XF270HU seems like a big no no. Even Acer basically admits that FreeSync and Overdrive don't work together.
