LG 34UC88/34UC98/34UM88 Monitors Thread - Page 34

post #331 of 959
So I'm running this monitor off an ancient GTX 580 at 30fps. With every passing day it gets harder to tolerate when pretty much any GPU can run Windows at 60 fps. Since there is support for Freesync, I've been waiting for AMD Vega. From what I've seen the RX 480 just isn't good enough for this monitor (although it's better than what I have currently.) Should I give in to Nvidia Pascal or is Freesync worth the wait?

FreeSync is definitely not worth waiting for 6+ months, especially if you are on GPU that cannot even display 3440x1440 60 Hz and you are locked to 30 Hz.

From my experience FreeSync is just secondary addition, nowhere near to be game changer or any meaningful feature that should determine your purchase decisions.

What is your performance goal and how much you planned to spend on Vega?

In my opinion, if you are looking somewhere near mid-end (~GTX 980 performance) then get yourself Sapphire Fury Nitro, they are on very nice discounts right now, you can get one for around 310 USD in US and 315-320 EUR in Europe (from Germany, caseking.de)

If you want a bit more, 980 Ti can be had in some discounts, or GTX 1070 is also a good option, you can be sure that AMD is not going to beat price/perf of $400 priced 1070/980 Ti in any significant way with Vega.

If you are looking for high-end performance, then you don't have any options right now. GTX 1080 is not proper high-end product, it is mid-sized chip priced as high-end one due to lack of competition from AMD, not worth spending that much on it. If you plan to get high-end, wait for 1080 Ti/Vega and meanwhile either get yourself the cheapest GPU that can display 3440x1440 at 60 Hz or just get Fury and sell it once Vega/1080 Ti is out. You shouldn't lose much value during those ~6 months if you get it for $300.

So every once in a while I notice my in game settings in WOW have gone down to 30hz. I am using the HDMI out of my 980Ti to power this screen. Should I be using Displayport or is the problem laying else where here.

Thanks for the advice. Seems that Nvidia is getting braver and braver with their pricing. No thanks to AMD.

Most big AAA games don't interest me as they used to, so I barely play them. However I'd like a high end card (and I consider the 1080 to be high end enough) for the few that do. In the meantime, would the RX 480 be a decent? I don't really want to buy a last gen card like the Fury. I think it would be easier to sell the RX 480 when Vega comes out.

Not necessarily. Depends if you are talking about 4 GB or 8 GB RX 480. Fury is much more powerful while being priced at around $300 now, while good 480s (there are very few of them, most of them are unusable due to heat and noise levels, including Sapphire Nitro unfortunately) are approaching the same price. So you are looking at $280+ price point for 8 GB. So it is up to you to decide whether you get Fury/980 performance for $300 or 970/390 peformance for $280. And if you talk about 4 GB 480, then maybe it makes sense, MSI model, the best one so far for Polaris cards, is $240. Thats still worse price/perf than Fury and substantially less performance (from my experience Fury is just barely enough for mid-demanding games, so RX 480 won't cut it), but yea, it may be easier to resell.

It goes down to 30 Hz only in settings or you are actually getting 30 FPS?

FPS still fine no noticeable decrease... but the settings in game are changing itself to 30HZ every other time I play. According to the fps tracker I do get around 90+ and like I said I feel no difference... I mean there are zones that can bring me down to 50 FPS and its blatantly noticeable so definitely not actually going down to 30. Just curious on why that would happen...

If you see no difference in actual gameplay then why bother? Mad Max was doing the same for me, showing 30 Hz all the time in settings but working properly on 60. Such bugs just happen, what is displayed in settings is not important, what matter is what are actual settings.

LOL

Quoting myself from my last comment "Just curious on why that would happen.." I care but not too much since performance is not degrading but wanting to know why things do the things they do is not a bad thing so don't threat it like such. It was a simple questions if you don't know why it is happening or have an productive input then there is no point in even replying.

But hey whatever floats your boat.

Does everyone with an Nvidia card get frame skipping at 75 Hz with these displays?

I'm just curious if those with Pascal based GPUs also experience the frame skipping. All the reviews I've seen mention the frame skipping on these newer LG panels with NV but they tested using a Maxwell GPU.

The RX 480 is around the same performance as the R9 290(X). It will play demanding games in low/medium settings, while doing fine for less demanding games. I recently switched from a R9 290 to FuryX and it's a pretty decent jump for everything that I play. I can max out (constant 75 FPS) a lot more games now, especially with only AA turned off.

Freesync isn't a game changer, but having access to 75Hz for AMD GPUs is a nice bonus. I came from 120Hz, so 60Hz is noticeably slow for me. In terms of price/performance, nothing will beat the $300 Fury, but the $400 GTX 1070/980Ti will be about 15-20% faster on average, downside is you're stuck at 60Hz for Nvidia GPUs.
