I was going to say "not true" but then I realized that without details we're just comparing subjective standards of low input lag that only exist in our minds and are different. When comparing 3 of my screens which all 3 have g-sync, 1 feels superfast, 1 medium but still fast and the last screen feels so slow I can no longer play games on it. In detail:
My Asus PG278Q
g-sync screens feels superfast like no input delay at all. As fast as I think and execute looking in a different direction with the mouse, the screen shows it ! This keeps amazing me as it gives me the sensation that my mind, arm, mouse, computer and screen are operating as 1 unit, not different parts.
My Asus PG27AQ
g-sync screen feels slow and sluggish now. It feels like I move the mouse and the screen just comes...later ! Being used to the PG278Q I expect the result of my action to follow at the exact same time of action but it doesn't. I have to wait for this delay and it frustrates me constantly. It feels like night and day difference in fast (looking around) movement
My Viewsonic viewsonic xg2703-gs
g-sync screen comes close to PG278Q but still not quite the same. Feels fast enough in order not to frustrate and playable with all the beautiful color benefits
As a reference standard and to put things into perspective the official vendor-published input lag values as well as the realistically measured "total input lag" by independent reviewers are widely available on the net. I realize that no IPS/VA screen such as the last 2 I mentioned can ever match the low input of the fast TN screen I mentioned first and thus cannot be compared or hoped for in the upcoming Asus PG27UQ
but the Viewsonic proves me every day that best of both worlds IS possible and that's exactly what I'm hoping for in the upcoming Asus PG27UQ
. If it's input lag however is gonna be anything like the PG27AQ I won't be buying it for sure.
I know you're very knowledgeable on monitors so maybe you have an idea on what we can expect from this upcoming monitor ?
