Will do, and if we take into account this being a true 23-144 range, combined with the 2.5x rule... this is a better option than even the new Eizo Freesync IPS coming... because it has two freesync ranges to choose from, and I guess you have to select it on your monitor which one you want it to focus on... this Acer is just plug and play smoothness with pretty colors and no yellow glow... hopefully lol

23-144hz freesync range on an IPS display would be god sent.

I ended up picking one up. I'll get it tomorrow as well. What are some things you recon I should test out?
My main concern is IPS bleed(glow?). I have the brightness on my current monitor (TN panel) at 50 so I can see that at 50 on an IPS panel will be deadly tongue.gif

In Crimson drivers, you can see the Freesync range listed, let us know if it really is 23-144... if it is... this is the most epic monitor ever, nothing but smoothness even if a game is hard to run lol

Also, some screenshots would be nice. Not true, I have an IPS from Samsung at the moment, well PLS, same thing, and it has no BLB or yellow glow. Some panels are just better than others.

I got my monitor today!

The Crimson drivers crash in Fallout 4 causing BSOD for me. So I've only tested with 15.11.1 so far.

When it comes to Freesync, it ranges from 40 to 144Hz it seems, as the refreshrate of the screen never goes below 40Hz or above 144Hz (obviously). The refreshrate matches perfectly with the FPS within this range though.

EDIT:
Proof, sorry for potato quality:

40-144Hz is still pretty respectable considering AMD's new LFC feature.

Could you please check for white and black uniformity? biggrin.gif

Well, it's not too bad I would say, it looks worse on the pictures than it actually is.




Not sure how bad it actually is compared to others though.

@Heraji, the yellow is pretty bad, but I have seen worse. As long as it doesn't bother you when you play a game with dark scenes, like a space sim. if mine was that bad I would probably send it in for a replacement, that yellow is a touch to much.

and that is not an accurate way to measure freesync, crimson drivers specifically tell you the range of the monitor, so I will confirm it when it arrives for me, cheers.

Ah well, I might consider sending it back. Not sure yet though :/

The yellow numbers on the pictures I uploaded is the screen itself telling its current refreshrate. I could not get it under 40Hz.
Unfortuantely the Crimson drivers doesn't work well with my R9 Fury STRIX, so we'll wait and see what results you get as well ^^
