Google (insert monitor) review before making a thread about it. Research (Google) before buying a monitor and then asking if it is good.

10 Bit Monitors: 99% are 8 bit+FRC and AMD Quadro or Nvidia Firepro gpu's are required to send+receive a true 10 bit signal. 10 bit consumer content (games, movies TV) does not exist.

Curious about anyone who has changed the freesync window to 57-144 from 35-90 and has had some extensive time using the monitor in that configuration. Are there any issues that arose that didn't exist before? Wondering if there is any downside short or possibly long term.

From what I've been explained it puts stress on the scalar chip where you can end up with flickering pixels and can possibly fry the scalar when testing wider adaptive sync ranges which adds extra heat.

Been using it "hacked" from 56-144 Hz for the last few months. Works fine. I think it can easily handle this range, it's just that ASUS saw ~55 Hz as 2 high, especially for this resolution, so they decided to go for 35 Hz. They didn't know AMD would implement LFC.

Good to hear even though a few months is not that much.. how much do you game? Hours per week? smile.gif

I was thinking about getting the mg278 since it supports up to 144hz freesync out of the box, but i really want the IPS panel smile.gif

2 hrs per day average I guess. But I remember ASUS talking about it before this monitor came out. They could do to 144Hz freesync, just thought it was more important to cover lower frame-rate.
