Sounds very interesting....thanks for not mentioning anything at all regarding price and/or status of presumptive pricing. Pricing for items like this are completely irrelevant since this is one of those things that we either expect to get for free, and if not, we'll just steal it...


* For those that fall outside of what must be the seemingly anticipated behavior illustrated above, I was able to locate this via HEXUS:

" AOC has informed us that the g2460Pg 24-inch gaming monitor will be available, starting from next month, at a recommended retail price of £369 including VAT. That price seems to represent a £169 premium on the AOC g2460Pgu (£199 at SCAN), I found during a quick price search. "

Happy to see Gsync is coming to more monitors. Although this monitor's design is horrible for me. Looks pretty ugly.

But you are looking at $800 approx.

For me, only G-sync with 4K makes sense. Unless someone is going with 3 of these.

Gsync will help low - mid range pcs/gpus mostly but will make high end look beautiful, in theory.

Problem is no one can see how well this works without physically seeing it in action.

They keep making Gsync monitors TN panels....

People really want IPS and 1440p.

Well G-Sync is definitely more of a gaming oriented thing so OEM's are going to prioritize it in gaming monitors first. There are also firmware changes that have to be made in order to compensate for the higher response times of IPS panels. Then you have the price issue. IPS @ 1440p are already pretty expensive tacking another $200 on to it isn't going to help sales.

IPS can't do 144hz and 1ms response times. IPS is great for colour reproduction but they are slow.

FFS not this again. Any one who has been following the ROG SWIFT will know it's the first 8-bit TN panel ever and it's 1440p.

Now can we stop with this IPS lark? BTW I have a Qnix IPS and they are not all that. Smearing when turning in BF4 is not great as some make out.

No one said they have to do either. Plenty of people here game at 60hz IPS @ 7-8ms response times. Adding G-Sync will further improve that @ 1440p resolutions. I wouldn't mind a G-Sync IPS, I just understand why OEM's are not prioritizing it. The market for IPS is small as is.

while I agree 30->60fps G-Sync is much better than 30->60fps V-Sync, we're still talking relatively low fps,
which I can easily notice, G-Sync or not. at these scenarios I mostly appreciate the low latency and overcoming cases of extreme stutter.

however, and despite common conception, for me - 60->144fps is where it REALLY shines (not dismissing the fact it also helps with fps drops).
V-Sync juddering/microstutter at higher frame rates is even more disturbing, frustrating and relatively apparent than at "console grade" frame rates you're referring to, which IMO sucks to begin with.
see, playing at 80-90fps for instance, you come to expect much more than what you actually get using plain V-Sync, TB and whatnot, however you do not expect flawless motion at say 40-50fps. well, at least I don't.

you cannot imagine what a relief it is to finally fully enjoy silky smooth motion & response of high fps, regardless of it fluctuating or even steady at unmatching full/half refresh rate V-Sync.
not to mention getting rid of all the hassle involved in having to consistently and optimally configure in-game and driver related stuff at a per game basis, where possible.
at last, I can concentrate on actually playing the damn games, more than messing about with limitations (and I'm a long time 120hz followed by 144hz V-Sync user alright).

a "cheap" fast ASUS 1080p TN panel with G-Sync DIY kit slapped on it, by far provides the best gaming experience I've ever had regarding fluidity, latency and ease of mind,
which I give higher priority when gaming, rather than say color reproduction or under performing ultra resolutions. (I fill my pixel-wise needs with antialiasing and downsampling as I see fit).

also, Nvidia's control panel backs me up on this

(mind you, that's the only scenario listed there)

Not sure if I want that one or a 4k monitor though. I just don't like the idea of 60hz with the 4k.

That Asus will be mine. I've experimented with downsampling of 2560x1600 enough to know that my cards will handle the 1440p, though not at 144 Hz for sure

4K is for my next rig, which won't be before 2016.

I would love to have a 4K monitor, in fact, before I bought my Qnix I had one in my shopping cart for like a month thinking about it but right now I don't think the support is there. Most people keep talking about graphics performance but that's like the least of my issues with 4K. I have a user at my work who has one of the 4K 30hz dell monitors on Windows 8 -- he uses it for CAD work. Windows/App scaling at 4K is in a really bad state right now. Some apps scale decently, others have broken font/asset scaling -- VLC for example will scale everything except for the text and player controls, it looks terrible. Some apps are completely broken, with text/buttons/etc removed from view.

And then I couple that with the fact that there is no 4K media really that I'm going to watch on it and even at 60Hz I feel like I'd rather game at a higher FPS and refresh rate -- I dunno I just think it's still too early for 4K. I'll reconsider when Windows 9 comes out, hopefully they'll fix some of the DPI scaling issues by then. I use my Qnix as a secondary and 1440p is enough of a step up for me to be happy with it, 96Hz is a plus. My main is a BenQ XL2420T that I plan on replacing with the Swift when it launches.

In that case I'll definitely give 4K a pass for now, leave it for my next upgrade when Skylake/Cannonlake and maybe Maxwell/Pascal is available.

Got mine... G-Sync is really really a huge step forward but I have a huge problem of homogeneity on my AOC, see the last image on the next page to get an idea of the perceived effect:
http://www.hardware.fr/articles/681-...onomiques.html
The problem is such that the screen becomes really unusable ... Big disappointment and return to sender for exchange. I really hope that this is not a widespread problem on the series! ... If not I understand the low introduction price !!!

It is indeed (a consolation) ! It means I will be able to have a chance that the new one will be in perfect shape ... That's all I want !

For information I received my RMA monitor from AOC Europe.
And...
And... I am so sad, there is clouding/mura everywhere, and as the other screen all the color are washed up in the bottom part of the display and over contrasted on the upper side.
I just discovered that in a Netherlands review of the screen they have the same issue : At the bottom of this REVIEW. The most funny part is that they say this is a good screen despite this issue ??? No, I am sorry I cannot use a screen on which while playing a game and a dark wall is displayed this wall looks flashy gray on the bottom and black on its upper part...

So... To sum up :
1st AOC G2460PG => One huge clouding on the bottom part
2nd AOC G2460PG => One big clouding on the middle part, one small clouding on the bottom part, a dark part between these 2 clouding part, 3 mura on the middle right part of the screen
1st AOC G2460PG review => Dutch translation said "The screen luminosity looks strange, like the screen has been punched on multiple part"

=> Something is seriously wrong here !!... AOC bought cheap B- 144 Hz panels, add a G-Sync module, sell it 350€ (hopefully I did not bought it 450€ as it was first annonced)... I feel like raped here ...

I will try to have an exchange where I bought this monitor to buy something else ! Maybe the ASUS ROG G-Sync if I really need to spend a lot to have something good...

I just want a good G-Sync screen ... Or I will wait for the IPS G-Sync ??

Ans then for info I have 4 Monitors at home currently (the AOC is the 5th), I have 1 Dell IPS (the best), 3 TN (Samsung, Asus, BenQ) and the AOC is by far the worst... Sorry
