Here we go ...
That's looks so cool!
Really? Just looks like your standard gloss black monitor to me with some tacky stickers added. (I know the insiders are different).
What is the size and res of the monitor ? If you are able to say.
Looks like standard 24" to me. Looking forward to see what it can do.
It's a modified VG248QE, so it's 24 inches diagonal and 1080p. Panel type is TN.
if theses monitors are only 24" and 1080p , that is a big downer.
hopefully they come out with 1600p\1440p 27-30" versions
or even better 4K g-sync monitors.
After seeing it in person, Linus from Linus Tech Tips called G-Sync a game-changer. I'm very interested to hear your opinion, Hilbert.
Just did some first test runs, and I agree. It is weird to not see tearing or vsync pulsing. Very smooth, likable and easy on the eyes even at say 35 FPS. Below 30 FPS things get a little weird, but then again that's the same withouth GSYNC.
But I'll refrain from judgement until I have spend enough time with it and tested everything more in-depth.
But for now, yeah I'm impressed.
damn now I`m interested
I just can't see Nvidia pushing a monitor that makes games run silky smooth at low fps. Who Will buy their gpus if all we need is 35fps+?
People are still going to want 100+ FPS in shooters and racing games for that added fluidity.
Well two reasons, you can flick on way more eye-candy and accept a lower FPS whilst getting a very smooth experience. PC gaming is all about more graphics quality for me.
Or how about this one: Right now a GTX 780 Ti is considered to be average at Ultra HD with 35 FPS. Such a card with a GSYNC module would make a perfect combo.
Then again, you don't wanna fall under 30~35 FPS too much though. I also noticed that if you do really high framerates things get ridiculously nice rendering wise (running 144Hz at the moment). So yeah, faster cards are still better.
So if this monitor does what it claims, it'll effectively eliminate the need for using vsync?
I can't wait to see how much the G-Sync upgrade module will cost for those of us who invested in the non-G Sync Asus VG248QE.
i'd be interested in a g-sync versus the korean overclockables...
tbh i cant see a 24inch with a lower res being superior to a 27inch higher screen that can do 120hz. (cost as well).
early days though. the screen tech seems to be changing quite a bit in the last yr or so..
Fair play Hilbert. Still, there's no ultra hd Gsync monitors, yet. I would be interested, but they will have to be at least 27" and IPS/PLS. I'm not going back to TN. You couldn't do a quick video with this monitor running 144hz and stock it on YouTube, could you?
Well if it gsync eliminates screen taring all together, then it is the better monitor. I have one of those Overlord 27 inch monitors that's I'm testing for a friend and even though it's damn good looking, It still has screen taring.
Love the tech, hate the panel. :nerd:
