ASUS VG278HE Monitor Packs 144 Hz Panel

ASUS announced its newest 27-inch 3D desktop monitor, the VG278HE, which packs an LED-backlit LCD panel capable of 144 Hz refresh rate, which adds 24 frames per second to 120 Hz display output, making 3D gaming look even more fluid. The VG278HE makes use of a TN-film panel, with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, and 2 ms (GTG) response time. It supports NVIDIA's 3D Vision 2 (kit to be purchased separately). Display inputs include dual-link DVI (dual-link needed for such high refresh-rate, even at 1080p resolution), D-Sub, and HDMI (lower refresh rates with single TMDS link). 6W stereo speakers make for the rest of it. ASUS did not announce pricing or availability.

Have you taken to account of demand and yield issues?
The problem isn't demand it's that companies just assume it won't be a significant selling point. Considering the ones that could manage it carried a very slight premium then even if the proper engineering doubled the circuit board cost it still would be a small price increase. The massive response/smoothness boost will offset the $20 cost increase. Even people who don't get it are conditioned to know 120 Hz = good from TV specs. It's prime time to capitalize on that.

In which case you should write to the marketing dept of (insert display manufacturer here).

While we wait, I suggest you to get one of these great products:

Just because you can still buy i5 750 does not mean LGA1155 is not dead :shadedshu

Its on its way out, except for specialist applications (which uses 1440/1600 now anyway)
