[Official] ASUS RoG Swift PG348Q Owners Club - Page 26

post #251 of 3538
Sure my sli 970's will do fine with this monitor but I think switching to a 980Ti would be better in terms of the additional vram. Been reaching close to the 4gb cap in "the division" for eg. at 2560x1440p. Lowering settings doesn't bother me that much so when I get mines will put it though some tests to see how my 970's hold up.

I will say it again, I will never understand people buying this monitor and gonna pair it up with a GTX 970 / or waiting for Pascal (which can be a year off, atleast the Ti version). Even in the manual for this monitor, Asus says you need a GTX 980 Ti to get it to overclocked to 100 hz (though you will probably be able to run it to 100 hz with other grafic cards).
You are better off just buying a cheaper model that doesnt overclock if you really have to have a 3440x1400 monitor.

Yeah, it's not the least bit preferable from strictly gaming POV. I could keep this PG279Q, but since I've had tons of problems with these I went with the PG348Q instead. I absolutely need a new monitor now for both work and play, and this awesome ultrawide was the choice to go with after thinking long and hard of the options smile.gif My 970 (Even though oc'd to the max stable with BIOS mods) is struggling even with this PG279Q and will for sure struggle even more with the PG348Q -- but it's okay because I won't anyways have much time for gaming this year. Also it's not too bad if I can't get to 100hz, though that'd be great for work (web design).

Of course there are some cons compared to the more work-oriented IPS monitors, but the pros this has outweighed the cons for me. Cons include:
- No 6-axis color control
- Not "true" 10-bit but 8-bit + FRC
- Not factory-calibrated like some
- No fancy stuff like built-in calibrator

The reasons I went with this instead of the PA328Q or similar professional or semi-professional monitors are:
- This works well for gaming too
- More desktop space compared to a 27" 1440p monitor
- Less performance impact compared to 4K, won't go there or higher until OLED is more mainstream so maybe 2017-2019
- Exciting aspect ratio
- Perfect pixel density for my taste, just perfect!
- Doesn't need me to get a Quadro (can't find any info whether Maxwell and newer cards support 10-bit color, I guess I'll see that when the monitor comes..but this is 10-bit through FRC so I guess it doesn't really matter)
- Gotta say I like the design too, even though I've always preferred very subtle and minimal stuff..but this hits home
- Again, so much more desktop space without too small pixels (Even Win10 scaling isn't perfect)

And when I buy a monitor I try to keep it for years. The old one I had for 7 years, and the one before that was 6 years old. So this one seems to offer more in the long run too on paper at least.

I wonder what Interstellar on Blu-Ray will look like with this monitor.. can't wait to watch it again

EDIT: I first ordered the XB270HU last Spring and have been shuffling monitors around since then, so I believe waiting for high end Pascal won't be too hard patience-wise biggrin.gif

Any idea which one spits out better calibration reports? HCFR or DisplayCAL?

HCFR is good for quick measurements and it gives you graphs with all the results. It will give you a line for the gamma at 0-100% which would be a good way of knowing what the default gamma is like on the PG348Q

So, I calibrated my ROG PG348Q again using Colormunki Display and displayCAL + argyllCMS shareware programs.
http://displaycal.net/

After initial eyeballing the image quality, I'm happy with the results.

I'm attaching my icc profile here
ROGPG348Q12016-02-2419-522.2F-SXYZLUTMTX.zip 690k .zip file

This is based on RaceMode @60Hz
Brightness 56, Contrast 50
Color Temp; R 98 G 96 B 99

So here is the gamma graph from HCFR.
Left is out of the box default in RaceMode and right is after my calibration with displayCAL (see my post above)

nice, big difference before and after in terms of picture quality for yourself. May look to get mine calibrated

I'm currently gaming on brightness 56 on RaceMode
Blue light filter level 1, contrast 50, Color Temp; R 98 G 96 B 99
OD Normal

I still have some experimenting to do. I might like to have the image a little bit lighter (like calibrating towards gamma 1.8).
Would like to see if I can get a little bit more detail in to the shadows. You know, where the bad guys always lurk.
Not quite sure yet how to achieve that.
Noticed that displayCAL has possibility to calibrate 3D LUT for ReShade. Gotta find out what that actually means and if it would be any use for me.

Anyhow, sofar I'm really enjoying this display. Love how to colours pop out and the clarity of movement with 100Hz and g-synch.
Had previously 3 x 1080p surround view config with 144Hz TN panels. Not going back.
