Definitely intriguing.

Decent resolution - check
Good refresh rate - check
Thin bezel - check
TN panel - doh!

I would like to get one and check out the internal bezel thickness with the external bezel removed. Drooling over the possibility of 3-4mm!

It will also be interesting to see if the monitor can be used in Lightboost mode of G-Sync. Although being a TN panel, it may not be suitable for portrait surround due to the viewing angles. redface.gif

People are still going on about this 60 Hz vs whatever stuff? lol

I'd like to see a guy show up with a 60 Hz IPS panel at a quake tourney and play against the guys with 160 Hz CRT's. He would get utterly destroyed. I can't even use 60 Hz monitors non-desktop anymore, makes baby jesus cry.

This is a great looking monitor and I'm sure it will be a very strong gaming performer. That said - the ROG/GSYNC markup seems pretty beefy considering things like the Overlord OC and Qnix.

Look forward to seeing more Gsync partners release as well as community members reviews on the technology.

Love the bezel and style and the ability to maneuver the display. Will those features along with warranty and Gsync be worth the premium? Subjective I suppose rolleyes.gif

Do you disagree that smooth motion is easier to see instead of jerky motion?

I understand just fine. I also understand that the very top tier players probably benefit from this. I'm not a top tier player, but I'm quite competent. I've spent extensive time both with 120 Hz TN and 60 Hz IPS, and I'd take 60 Hz IPS ten times out of ten for gaming.

However, 99% of the way in which 120 Hz panels get talked about is a bunch of marketing bunk or repetitions of marketing bunk. Most players will see no improvement other than placebo, because they are not so skilled that their gameplay is hampered at times by a 60 Hz refreshrate with lackluster response time.

Like I said - go find something other than anecdote to prove me wrong if you are so confident of your own position. If my claims are so bold, surely that wouldn't be hard rolleyes.gif

In Quakeworld I hit way more LG on a 120hz monitor and its simply easier to play because QW is so fast you're missing a lot of visual information at 60hz. Lightboost helps as well.

This. Ugh...if only 16:10 was dominant. GOLDEN RATIO FOR EVERYBODY! (well, it's close enough to phi).

No, Its a good idear sell me yours, and buy the gimmicky thing. I would love a 27 1440 ips 120, gysnc no need, i can adjust my own setting's.

Overlord monitors, will look into this thank you, + i dont have to stay with nvidia as well.

Question why do big firms, give us crap, ? TN

Is it because ony 1% of the pop, need 120 hz + so we end up with 10 year old tech on a 1440 @120hz

Is TN the only tech to give us the speed - blur ?
Will Oled help us. ?

?? LOL
.



If you think AMD is so great. That's fine, just buy AMD hardware. I don't mind. But you're not making much sense imo with your posts.

When I search for new hardware/upgrades I buy whichever company's product I approve at that given moment, don't care who made it...
