Alienware 27 Gaming Monitor - AW2720HF IPS 240Hz

New Alienware 27 Gaming Monitor - AW2720HF I can't find anything on the specifications if it is G-sync compatible. Is it G-sync compatible?

By the way that monitor does not have a 1ms response time no IPS panel does its marketing hype

Then why do they call it True 1ms (gray to gray)and are there any reviews for it?

LG said the same thing about their new IPS panel and as that turns out the monitor looks absolutely terrible when its set in that mode and nobody wants to use the monitor in that mode so the 1ms is only half true

Unless there is a review that confirms it really is a 1ms display take that with a huge grain of salt
Edit: and why do you want 1080P on a 27 inch that will give you are pretty low PPI compared to 1440P

I have a 27" 1920x1080p IPS 144Hz now and HD is just sweet. I'm looking for reduced motion blur in BFV running 200-240 FPS.

The PPI of 1080P on a 27 inch is only 81,59 which is not very high so the picture is not as sharp compared to 1080P on a 24 inch which would have a PPI of 91,79
1440P on a 27 inch have a PPI of 108,79 so without getting a bigger screen you would see a huge increase in image quality and sharpens

Dont buy another 27 inch 1080P monitor the resolution is a bit too low for a screen that size and if you take a look at a 27 inch 1440P monitor in person you will see a night and day difference

LOL I don't know what your talking about I've seen 1440p 27" monitors in person to compare 1080p 27" and everyone I show the difference say they can hardly tell the difference including me. The loss of 30-50 FPS from going to 1440p from 1080p is not worth it. I'm a high FPS gamer for reducing blur from fast mouse sweeping and I want to step up to 200-240 FPS. I play competitive gaming with all advantages I can get to win.

I also wan't 240Hz IPS panel for good colors and viewing angles.

This video is my belief for 1920x1080p VS 2560x1440p. It's not worth it going from 1080p to 1440p if you need the high FPS.
