How can you actually live with bezels Dave? I've tried so many times yet I couldn't avoid staring at them :|

Yeah, im with Dave. I cannot see myself leaving my IPS, for a pricey TN monitor. Once gsync is in an ips monitor thats when i care about gsync.

Yeah, man, I'm not saying G-SYNC is bad...it is just that it's not for everyone. I myself am interested, having used it a lot. But even for me, as a graphics snob, G-SYNC has limited uses and as such, is almost more confining than anything.


I've chosen to be a multi-monitor gamer, rather than having super-high FPS. that's why G-SYNC @ lower FPS is interesting to me. I'd love for G-SYNC to be useful in that situation, too.

Not everyone likes the same stuff, and people with different opinions than your own aren't necessarily saying you're wrong in your opinion... just that theirs differs. You and I are both interested in this monitor, but I think for different reasons. and I still want IPS panel, TN is like 2005 or even earlier tech. I notice TN dithering, and it makes me feel ill.
Since you are interested in running surround vision or multi monitor and your pic shows 3way SLI you can run Gsync in multi monitor /surround vision.

There are suppose to be 4k Gsync monitors coming out. Did you catch that modified 4k ASUS monitor with Gsync at CES2014?

no, I didn't catch the 4k monitor. I have no interest in running single monitor, and 4k surround requires more GPU grunt than what is on the market today, IMHO.

I'm already running 3x Dell U2412M's in surround. The color clarity is amazing on these monitors in particular, coming from Dell 3008WFP. Nevermind that my current panels all together draw less power than my single 3008WFP did at idle. :roll:


So either there is some changes in G-SYNC to suit my needs (IPS panels), these SWIFT monitors have me overly impressed, or I'll be keeping my current config until after the Maxwell release. I have a fairly big retailer locally that I am sure will have demo models in-store to check out in the least. I can also just buy one to try and then return it if not satisfied.

How can you actually live with bezels Dave? I've tried so many times yet I couldn't avoid staring at them :|
Doesn't really bother me, to be honest. It was worse when I was running TN panels since my current monitors have smaller bezels and I have positioned my monitors such that only one bezel is visible, and maybe that's part of the reason I am anti-TN was the larger bezels back when I use that in Eyefinity.:p

I'm pretty sure 4K surround won't be a viable option even with next gen GPUs.

4k with Gsync makes lower FPS feel acceptable and as good as the 60hz/fps range.

They showed 4k/Gsync in surround vision running on 3way SLI titans at CES

Eventually GPU's will get caught up with 4k. Give it a few years.

That 4k surround vision wasn't G-Sync.

G-Sync currently doesn't support multi-monitor setups. Maybe in the future.

NV Surround + G-Sync - Will it work?

Josh@Nvidia said:
Its going to require a DP MST Hub which are are looking into for future support and surround
Josh@Nvidia said:
Gysnc surround is not supported at the moment with Tri SLI setups, but its definitely something we are working on to get supported asap

Since the current G-Sync modules only work with TN LVDS panels. You'll have to wait for G-Sync 2.0 or the FreeSync VESA adapted standard in DP 1.2a for multi-monitor use.

Basically. That's why I posted a pic of my rig...G-SYNC is only useful, really, to single-monitor users, with a weaker GPU that what I got. I need G-SYNC Surround.

But the ability to get a 27-inch panel and pair it with a GTX760 or so is rather tempting, I must say.

Alright, you've actually convinced me to get this monitor, but I'm thinking of going surround again, any news or info on the release date, and/or status of G-Sync paired with surround?

I haven't heard any new's on surround vison/G-sync But ROG has confirmed they're holding to a late Q2 release for the Swift.

We'll see. I'm hoping ASAP! Star Citizen dog fight module coming. My sim pit is at home and I don't have Gsync there.

Does G-sync work with SLI? I can use my Titans to drive the G-sync monitor in the middle and drive the two extra monitors using a third card (I have a GTX580 somewhere) when not gaming.

Do you guys think we should wait for G-sync 2.0? I was doing a bit more research and it seems like it's a pain in the ass with multiple monitors and/or cards in its current iteration :(

Gsync works with SLI and multi monitor setups. I've used the NVIDIA G-SYNC: ASUS VG248QE
on both my rigs and it works flawlessly.
people really have no clue how much of a game changer Gsync is until they try it.

Yep, ill give you that, I've zero clue, as I have personally never tried it; I've read enough to understand it makes a big difference though, and I want to believe the hype, I have no interest in 4K really, but G-sync (and/or freesync) sound like real game oriented tech.

Thanks for answering the SLI question, forgive me for asking, but do you know if in order for this tech to work in surround the current modules will need only a new firmware, or perhaps a new driver release, or do we have to wait for a new version for that?

I love playing in surround, but am willing to sacrifice it to try Gsync on a single monitor, eventually though I would like to go for a surround setup again, I did the exact same thing with 3D vision, but in this case I would hate to throw $799 away if I can't add a couple more monitors down the road :)

Once again, thanks for your input :toast:

The most recent response from JJ over at ASUS

Jon 4 weeks ago
For an application like Iracing, or any other simulator, would I need 3 graphic cards to link 3 of these Asus monitors? I understand that to get the full resolution of these you would use the display port connection, but if these monitors only have one input and the 780ti only has one output I’m assuming you will need 3 780s?

JJ 3 weeks ago
Yes that would be correct. We are currently evaluating other types of solutions such as DP hubs and adapters and seeing how it impacts performance/functionality. Stay tuned for more information.

I read an article somewhere that Nvidia is going to have surround vision support with Gsync. It's a driver solution they stated.

I read an article somewhere that Nvidia is going to have surround vision support with Gsync. It's a driver solution they stated.
All the information I've seen points to a DP hub they are try'n to make work.

josh@Nvidia said:
Gsync monitors will only have DP inputs, we are currently evaluating the use of DP hubs for Gsync surround, currently surround will not be supported until then.
I feel the pain i run surround and dont think i could "downgrade" to a non surround setup until this gets worked out =(
Other option is to release updated version of their GPUs to accomidate more then one DP (G-sync) out.

With AMD's Freesync being developed I can't help but think that Gsync is doomed, especially as Freesync is being picked up by Vesa...

Back on topic: I'd rather replace my U2711 with a 120hz 2560x1440 monitor than a 60fps 4K monitor. I may still buy in to the ROG when it arrives even with Gsync (I run a pair of R9-290's in CF, so Gsync is useless for me)..... having said this by the end of summer I expect to see a number of 2560x1440 monitors with true support for 120hz (not overclocked import) with better pricing than the ROG.

Just my opinion though :)

Yes, I'm not a 4K believer either, would rather have three of these monitors in surround, the problem with free sync is that we won't see 1.2a DP enabled monitors until Q3 or more, although at this rate those monitors will probably be released at the same time than the Swift...

C'mon Asus, hurry up and take my money already!
