    Anyone seen anything of this lately? I've had a look around and aside from the announcement in early January it seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth!

    Nah, its still coming. And is one of the three, only known 144hz IPS panels that actually use an IPS variant named AHVA (has nothing to do with VA).

    Which is basically IPS with almost TN pixel response times, good enough apparently that it can use strobing/lightboost/ulmb.

    Here are the 3 that are known:
    800$ Acer XB270HU (GSYNC, 27", 144Hz, 1440p, IPS)
    1000$ Acer XR341CK (GSYNC, 34" Ultrawide, 144Hz, 3440x1440, IPS)
    600$ ASUS MG279Q (Adaptive Sync -unbranded FreeSync-, 27", 120Hz, 1440p, IPS)

    Night and Day difference of better. Because its 1440p and IPS and has freesync. The asus you mentioned has none of this.

    Been pushed back to the 8th May on Overclockers, and everyones cancelling their pre-orders now, due to this :-

    Let's just hope it's a not hardware limitation...
