So depending on the monitor it could be max 60hz if it doesn't have 75hz. It's why they included HDMI 2.0 it also had freesync over HDMI 2.0 but the overdrive didn't work with freesync.



I was able to output 144hz over HDMI on my XF270HUA. One HDMI port was HDMI 1.4 and limited to 70 hz, the other was HDMI 2.0 and could output 144 hz at 1440p.

Thanks for the info! What I don't get that panel is listed as 10 bit, shouldn't it list it at 8 bit as it's all it can reach at the rated 144hz? I wish I opened mine up to know for sure, but no longer have it.
The weird thing when I brought up the firmware version it didn't list the panel as most monitors do that I've seen online.

I think the issue is that the monitor outputs use DP 1.2 and HDMI 2.0, which limits bandwidth to 17.28Gbps and 18 gbps. 8 bit 144hz at 1440p is 15.93 gbps, under this limit, while at 10 bit it is 19.11 gbps, just over this limit.

That is pretty dumb not to use 1.3 or 1.4 displayport, seems like at Acer there isn't that much communication with all the departments, one orders a new panel but the other doesn't update the spec sheet. The company size is hurting them in a way jack of all trades master of none.

Yes that is right HDMI 2.0 can do 144hz just like on the NX-27EDGv2, but others were asking how high can can the refresh rate go using HDMI 1.4 which is 60/75ha depending on the option on the monitor. Not all monitors have 75 it's usually 60/120/144 but 75 is the max on HDMI 1.4.

I use these settings for my NX-27EDG and find the colour accuracy is extremely good. It's a like it's been calibrated professionally or something. I also use sRGB profile in Windows Colour Management. @peter-nixeus have these been calibrated in manufacturing?
I do have to turn off Gamma as using any setting brings in other colour shades and with gamma set to off there is none of that grey is grey and white is just that too.

Guys if you don't already use these settings try them out!

@peter-nixeus what is the difference between Standard and Photo colour effect? They look the same to me.

I might one day get a calibration tool and checkout the performance of these settings.

I can can't get anything close to these clean white points if I try and do it manually messing with the RGB channels with or without gamma and I am very pleased with the results I'm getting. I remember on my Acer XF270HUA choosing sRGB didn't give accurate greys and whites plus it had horrible uniformity with each side of the panel having different hues so I am pleased with Nixeus's sRGB mode.

I'm not sure, but I don't think the R9 290X has HDMI 2.0 to support FreeSync over HDMI. From what I am reading, the R9 290/290x only has HDMI 1.4a outputs = so it might not be able to support 2560 x 1440 144Hz with FreeSync.

I'll test it with the R9 390 I have to double check and confirm.
Peter, you mentioned here that the DVI port and 3.5 mm audio plug are being removed on the version 2 of this monitor. A quick check of the Nixeus website product page for this monitor (https://www.nixeus.com/nx-edg27) still shows the ports. I would have simply thought that this would have been merely an old product page but the page mentions the HDMI 2.0 (up to 144Hz). The version 1 did not have 144Hz on HDMI 2.0 from my understanding.

I guess my question is if the product page for the NX-EDG27 is correct. I'm eagerly awaiting my shipment of this monitor on February 27th and cannot stop reading about it on my free time.

Hello everyone,I just finished building my new PC and now choosing monitor is a very big concern. My build is:

Gigabyte Z390 Ultra
RTX 2080 Asus ROG OC
9700k + be quiet Dark Rock Pro 4
16GB DDR4 G.Skill 3200
Samsung 970 Evo + 4TB HDD
Corsair RM850x (2018 edition) + be quiet silent base 800

I play on full HD 60hz and now I want to try 1440p gaming with some nice ips 144hz monitor.
Mainly I play World of Tanks,but I always play AAA games when they are out,mostly FPS and TPS games.

My desk is 80×140cm and I will sit approx 2 feet from monitor.

I think 600$ for asus and acer is too much(assuming quality control for such pricey monitors) and accidentally I put an eye on this nixeus monitor v2,can someone recommend it for buying? All I need is IPS panel,144hz,with freesync which will work nicely with my gpu and I think this monitor qualifies for that,what do you think?

Gigabyte Aorus Ultra Z390 + 16GB G.SKILL Ripjaws 3200
GPU - N/A
CPU - Intel 9700K + be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4
HDD - 970 EVO 500GB + 4TB HGST
Corsair RM850x 2018 Edition + be quiet! Silent Base 800

I have this monitor, v2 is out, and you should go for it. Mine came with no issues.
