thread title gave me heart-attack, this monitor is probably coming out in December. I remember reading a Japanese article that mentioned the Acer variant will have a December release.

Some more recent info on this monitor..

http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/monitors-and-projectors/monitors/asus-rog-swift-pg258q-1327880/review

"Expected to land before March 2017"

Why does this monitor have G-Sync? Marketing gimmick to make it more expensive? No competitive gamers are going to use it. Tearing at 240Hz/4.17ms frame time is nigh invisible.

Yes. It's to make it more expensive. We will have AOC 240Hz withot G-Sync this year. I hope their overdrive isn't much bad comparing to g-sync.

Running games constantly over 240fps even simple graphic ones like CSGO is unlikely when several things occuring simultaneously on screen. So if anythin that's the one monitor where Gsync will have the most use ever.

I may be hated for this post, but this is like 8K screens to me. Pointless. not only getting 240 fps is possible only on older titles on semi-terrible settings (low, medium at best @ monster GPUs), but also the diminishing returns nature of higher refresh rates make a gap between 144hz and 240 hz really small and in my honest opinion completely not worth it.

But hey, another reason to sell a TN panel for ridiculous price tongue.gif

Diminishing return or not the difference between 120 and 144 is already very noticeable and thats only an increase of 20%, imagine how 144 to 240 feels which is a +67% increase.

There's also the BenQ/zowie version XL2540 with the same panel but no gsync and some kind of "flaps" idk if it's looks a bit like flimsy plastic, but probably far cheaper at 499 (asus price still unknown).

Maybe for you. I stop seeing differences at 110, TBH. I'm of course not saying you're not in the (figuratively, I don't have precise data on the matter) 1% population that can distinguish 144 from 240 with enough ease to justify buying a crappy TN panel. Most people won't, though.

I also don't think you understand what diminishing return means in this scenario. 250hz vs 500hz is +100% and I'm positive you would not spot any sort of difference no matter how hard you tried. 144 vs 240 - maybe you would see some differences, but they would be on the edge of perception and completely not worth it.

It's a marketing gimmick.
