    Disappointing no support for Nvidia Gsync from Asus though.

    Who cares about G-Sync now that Nvidia supports freesync?

    Exactly!

    Well I'm not much into the 500+ nits monitors yet, but I'm dissappointed by the fact that 2 of these monitors have only 90% DCI-P3. I expect the sweet spot to be around 99% to 110% DCI-P3, given the fact that we are now moving towards Rec 2020 color gamut, and full utilization of 10bit colors.

    Gsync is vastly superior to freesync. Much better frames range and more nits.

    nits have nothing to do with adaptive display.
    it's a measurement of monitor brightness, thus two monitors, one with G-Sync and one w/o can have the exact same nit rating.

    these monitors hit a very very good sweet spot.

    pricing is crucial however as the Samsung qd TV's (and now LG) have free-sync.
    Samsung has a very nice 50" under $500 that games very well. and for HDR you can get a very nice Vizio (full array backlight) under $700, again at 50".

    VA instead of IPS = Nope!

    Freesync 2 is closing the gap. For 90%+ of gamers, they couldn't care less. Both work just fine for the majority.

    • Acer XFA240
    • Acer XG270HU
    • Acer XV273K
    • Acer XZ321Q
    • Agon AG241QG4

    IPS contrast ratio = 900-1000:1
    VA contrast ratio = 2000:1+
    HDR will be far better on a VA panel compared to an IPS.

    Maybe these will release on time since they are FreeSync, Asus still hasn't released the ROG Swift PG35VQ and that was shown over a year ago

    Agreed....
    Is it my imagination or are 90% of the monitors coming out now VA panels...It's annoying the crap out of me that all the new monitors coming out seem to be these now...

    Everything is vastly better then IPS due IPS glow.

    Thesr are opinions, ofcourse, i for one am glad VA is getting better and more widely used. Can't stand, and never will, get an IPS.

    You referring to the blacklight bleeding issue? If so, this has never been an issue for me and I've owned 3 IPS's screens. I know the issue exists but I've never been affected by it.
    I know their not as fast as TN panels but they don't' have the ghosting issue of the VA's.
    Maybe I need to have a good try of a VA panel and see if its an issue for me...

    Every IPS screen i have seen has been an issue for me. Even monitors people swear up and down doesn't have the issue lol. I am sure i am overly sensitive to it.

    Dumb question but. Lets say these new monitor sare "Gsync Compatible , therefore approved to work with adaptive sync (Freesync 2).
    Low Framerate Compensation (LFC) is it going to work on nvidia cards ?
    and what about the combo Gsync + HDR.
    my old asus 1080p monitor is coming to an end 144hz. and i was planning to move to a 144hz+ 2k Gsync/Freesync monitor only reason i didnt buy the Asus-PG279Q was for all the Backlight bleed / Crap IPS panels that people were getting faulty over and over again. "and some people still are.
