  1. I wonder how the upcoming Dell G-Sync monitor will compare to these two? Tom's needs to get their hands on all of them soon, and write us up a nice review. :)
  2. WHOA! DID you hear that! 165hz refresh rate!! First monitor I've seen with anything higher than 144hz.

    Yes we sure do. (Hint hint to any OEMs listening :) )

    I know, and from an IPS display too. I'm amazed. I've seen one or two displays with refresh past 144 Hz, but that was an "Up To" label and users had to use officially supported overclocking tools to hit that mark. (The Acer Predator display is an example with an "Up to 200 Hz" label). This one is a pre-programmed gaming mode that you just select and your off to the races.
  5. In the UK the Swift PG279Q is priced at £749.99 with an ETA of 13/11/15...
  6. power consumption is 90w? this is twice of that asus freesync 144hz 1440p 27 inch monitor
  7. @griffon9: I think that may be to do with the panel being an IPS rather than a TN panel.

    I'm not sure that is the native refresh rate. It may just be 144hz. A growing number of announced g-sync monitors during the last few months are advertising "overclocked" refresh rates that are possible because of the gsync module. Acer currently takes the crown with a claimed 200hz on the Predator Z35.

    Ok that makes more sense. Still though, amazing for IPS. Can't wait until we see OLED IPS panels with this same refresh rate. :D
  10. I want that 1440p monitor....
  11. I like the inclusion of the HDMI port, but it would really be a lot more useful imo to include an hdmi adapter and MST output on a second displayport. For that matter MST probably could pass output to the HDMI port, either way daisy chaining monitors really is something I'd like to do, but having an output on a monitor is incredibly rare and hubs stupidly expensive.
  12. where's the larger version of this ROG monitor . the 4K one they were showing off earlier in the year?

    Just look back 10 years. CRT's were hitting 200Hz before the turn of the century. It's actually quite sad that it has taken this long to catch up.
  14. Looks like the Predator will remain on top. As for wondering where the 4k version is, I was hoping Asus would break in with the 1st DP 1.3 connector which would allow 4k at > 75 Hz..
  15. Hmm, not a word about the problems with the PG278Q and pixel inversion or white screen of death. Was that something that didn't happen? I was checking out the PG278Q a couple of weeks ago seeking a higher resolution 3D Vision replacement for my VG278H when I read about the horrors. I guess the got a new G-sync ASIC from NVIDIA with this one, hopefully...

    You'll never see that as OLED isn't a type of back-lighting.
  17. Wonder how many of these will fail like the swift.
    I hope they fixed the major flaw, Mine going in for repairs it died a few weeks back.
    Then another guy left me a message on youtube asking how I went as his swift just died as well, Same flickering/blurry text on all refresh rates. I think the G sync module is faulty so I hope they fix it in these upcoming screens.
  18. There is a new G-SYNC module in these newer run of monitors, that being said, for every vocal problem with the PG278Q SWIFT there are plenty of *very* happy owners, myself and my roommate included.

    It was a first-of-its-kind monitor, there was bound to be bleeding-edge tech issues. Is that "acceptable" for a nearly $800 monitor at launch? That's up for debate, but, every high-end bleeding edge tech product has its issues. Just so happens with a monitor, they're typically immediately obvious since you're staring at it for hours on end.
  19. I might get flamed for asking this, does either monitor support 3D?

    I don't think so. I know for a fact an ASUS Rep over on the ROG forums confirmed that the IPS 1440p one does not, so I can only assume that the 4K one won't either. I'm not sure why, it might be the not-low-enough response time? But I'm not sure.
  21. What's going to be the price tag on those? That 4K looks very tempting but I'm guessing it's not going to be cheap.
  22. This looks really cool but I'd love to see a 32 or 40 inch 4k with gsync. That is my unicorn...

    No. It's a TN. That poster is misinformed. The PG278Q is a TN 1440p 144Hz panel and is last year's ROG Swift.

    This year it's the PG279Q for IPS 1440p, and PG27AQ for 4K.

    Overclockers UK had it listed for a November 13th release. Press releases are saying November for US.

    Okay, thanks a lot you have been a great help.

    I have considered the Acer Predator XB270HU, but I have heard problems of black light leakage and poor build quality. So I am looking at the PG279Q for an alternative, but I hope it isn't more expensive then the Acer Predator

    Overclockers had it listed at 749.99 pounds for preorder. When the last swift came out, it was 749 pounds and $799.99 US, so I'm betting it will be the same this time around, especially now that the TN PG278Q Swift has dropped down to $625-670 in the US now.
