Quote from JJ at ASUS:

This panel is not targeted at standard entry users targeting sub 300 dollars monitors. As such it does not make for a comparison. With that noted, the feedback that some IPS enthusiasts are not satisfied with panel being TN is a reality of the panel technology and the performance & specifications available for corresponding panels on the market. We pushed to provide the best possible experience possible in developing a panel that did not exist and carefully considered multiple aspects in the design and develop ( many specifically in relation to pc enthusiasts and pc gamers ). Some of these points are that most TN panels are only 6bit color performance or 6bit + frc / dithering. The ROG SWIFT is a native 8 bit panel. While this will not compete with IPS or PLS in regards to there 8bit performance, it still offers a considerably improved experience compared to the majority of current TN panels. This among many other factors shows the commitment to provide a panel that meets the realistic needs and wants of the community while also ensuring the specifications needed for this monitor could be met. Ultimately if a user still wants the absolute best in color fidelity, accuracy and viewing angle they will stay or get a IPS/PLS display but at the disadvantage of not having the performance specifications offered on TN based monitors. This is nature of the panel technology now. With that noted we are excited and committed to continuing to collect feedback from the community and our users and looking to see how we can further bridge the benefits of IPS/PLS and TN panels in a single monitor.
The monitor comes with a AG Polarizer. it is not a glossy.

Small bezels? Finally

Legonut 12-30-2013 11:11 PM

A vg248qe with G-sync, tiny bezels and a huge pricetag?

anticommon 12-30-2013 11:11 PM

Razor thin bezels is where we need to be right now.

4k is where we should be by the end of 2014.

4k surround with razor thin bezels is the dream.

Maybe if I cross all my fingers it'll be decently priced.

I wonder what sets this apart from what's already on the market. Thanks for posting!

I wish for a 4K, thin basel and g-sync.
Oh I'm so preparing myself to be disappointed but I so wish for something like that at the same time. I'm so conflicted... redface.gif

Umm, sure.
Assuming you have the funds for at least 3 more 780's.
And then a 12-15K PSU.
Yep, that's where we need to be...
Look, I am all for the advancement of tech, but there isn't any cable company or satellite provider that even offers 4K content. Not to mention any Hollywood entities.
Upscaling is for morons, because it's not made with native content. It's like the useless 240Hz Tv's. Nobody uses it except for sports, and even then you are getting a compromised image.
And while some may scale the game for 4K, they don't scale their textures for it.
It's a market for .001 of consumers this round.
Personally, I like OLED more, because it's not just about PPI, but about image quality.
Just my 2 cents.
