Asus PG258Q - 25" 240hz monitor anounced. 0_____O - Page 13

post #121 of 129
Anyone know if a 780ti can drive 240hz on this monitor? These specs say its possible, don't these cards have bandwidth limitations? Actually reaching 240fps isn't much of a concern for me because I'm buying it mostly for QL and I'll upgrade the GPU some time afterwards.

The PG258Q does suffer obvious vertical lines pixel inversion(aka interlace pattern artifacts). It is more pronounced at the lower refresh rate ranges(G-Sync, ULMB, fixed refresh, it doesn't matter), but is still visible at the upper range. The lines are just something you have to deal with. However, lowering the backlight brightness will reduce visibility of the lines, and the PG258Q does come insanely bright out of the box. I'm also pretty sure this effect could even be seen on a static desktop if you play with your vision or blink your eyes.

The only panels I've personally seen to not cause any pixel inversion would be the 24GM77 and XB270HU Bprz. But the pattern on those displays could just be fainter, or more of a mesh pattern so that it isn't so easily noticed.

The S2417dg, S2716dg, PG278q/PG278qr all should have vertical lines pixel inversion. The PG348Q/X34 should have horizontal lines. And Samsung Cfg70 might have a checkerboard pattern.

Could anyone with the monitor please let me know how much cm does the stand base takes? (from the leg in the back to the tips of the front ones) Hopefully its less than 20cm in width.

Hi, All
Where can I find the .inf (driver) file of this monitor? (thanks for answer)

However, when the PG278Q is plugged along with the PG258Q, it only goes to 144Hz G-Sync range.
How did you determine this? With an in-game fps counter? What about if you leave both physically connected but disable one using Windows + P to switch displays?

No.

Did you end up returning this second one too? I´m asking this because I just bought a PG258Q and I have the exact same issue. Frustrating indeed after coming from a bad experience with a PG248Q (stuck pixels and persistent horizontal scanlines above 120hz).

I don´t know if I should RMA it and ask for a replacement or just give up on this model, because if it´s a design flaw, the new one will have the same problem......

I dont care about gsync, etc... but is this like the best 240hz monitor out there? the AOC one apparently has ghosting and the BenQ one too I heard? Only the Asus one seems perfect? Some people are complaining about vertical lines on the Asus one, is this on all of them or just a lemon?

I dunno which to choose between the 3. I generally like the BenQ monitors once calibrated.

Perfect is a strong word, but it's good for gaming.
