AOC U2879VF 28'' 4k Freesync - Page 4

post #31 of 39
i run a 5820k with an XFX 390x and it works surprising well at 60 FPS with most settings maxed out. Do not use AA not needed and if the FPS drops I back down ambient occlusion and or DOF options.

Play Crysis 3, Star Wars BF, BO 3, Metro LL, Verdun and Dirt Rally. Does have one stuck pixel along left edge not worth exchanging IMHO.

Hey guys this thing is $300 on jet.com shipped. $293 if you waive free shipping on return. I'm not going to waive the return shipping just in case I get a dead pixel or 2.

Is there anything else out there worth looking at in this price range? I would prefer a 3440x1440P monitor over 4k but have not seen one near this price. I'll be running (2) R9 290X water-cooled w/ 4.8GHz 4670K.

My adventure with 4K

If you read all the noise on the net they all say that there is no single card option for 4K. Not true.

The XFX 390X I own set to factory clocks has enough VRAM to load textures at 4K at decent FPS. I was ready to venture into a LG free sync ultra-wide but came across a AOC 4K 60Hz TN 28 " for 350 USD at my local Microcenter so I pulled the trigger. Do not start flaming the TN panel it is the same one used by Samsung in their $700 version.

I do scientific imaging for a living and have seen many displays including a $20,000 Eizo which will correct any issues you may have at a price beyond affordable. My AOC has one flaw, a single edge stuck pixel which is in a spot where it is not noticeable. Yes there is minor off axis shift of colors

I also have a 4K TV for other viewing, it has a decent scaler as Agent Smith noted with his experience.

There are some minor desktop scaling issues with Win 10 and 4K, however all program windows and text are crisp and sharp.(word, excel, PP and Adobe Photoshop CS suite).

My gaming target is 40 FPS min, anything lower the free sync drops out unless you mod the drivers. I use V sync or target frame control to avoid tearing on some titles if above refresh rate.
I also turn off AA at 4K, personal preference.

I game on ultra on Verdun @ 75 FPS,
Multiplayer Crysis 3 @ 60 FPS very high settings,
Star Wars BF on ultra 60 FPS steady and higher if V sync is disabled,
Need For Speed 60 FPS ultra, med AO, Gorgeous in 4K
Metro LL 50 FPS very high, no PhysX, no SSAA,
COD BO3 90 FPS maxed out
Alien Isolation ultra 60 FPS min
Bioshock inf ultra 60 FPS min
Titanfall ultra 60 FPS with AO turned down a bit.
Dirt Rally ultra 60 FPS steady.

For the price it is highly recommended, my son has a Asus Strix 970 and there are no affordable 4K g sync displays, go team Red!!!!!

Got mine in the mail... Have not spent much time gaming on it yet.

It def needs 2 390/290 cards but that was expected most games needed that on my 1440P. Trying to figure out what setting to get rid of when trying to run on 1 card is hard. (sold my other when I sold my 1440p monitor).

Mine has uneven lighting from the center to the edges I'm OK with that because it's a gaming monitor.

Hi,

Wondering what you meant about modifying drivers as far as the freesync range is concerned? Do you have a link on how to do this?

Also how do you have your text settings set up? I left them set to what windows recommends for the monitor and the text is NOT perfectly crisp. Nothing like my 1440P monitor was. I ended up turning on truetype for now but if you have specific settings that you are using that work better let me know. I was told to expect scaling issues and blurriness on any 4k panel this size so I am wondering if maybe you just are not realizing that it could be better.
