I've been using Gsync for about 8 months now. It's not hype it's awesome and I'm not going to play without it again.

As for the Swift. Every single review has been off the chain.

@Hitman_Actual When you get it please put some feedback on the Swift here. This will probably be my next monitor upgrade and a GPU to handle it.

Personally I don't care much about a tiny bit of vsync slips here and there in fast FPS, this panel is TN. The Qnix is the best price/performance right now, and with overclockability and it's IPS panel I'd take it over this any day.

Everything sucks, for now. When I saw this I thought maybe someone had finally forked out the cash to develop quicker circuitry to support high speed IPS panels. The panels we have now can actually overclock to 120hz without dropping frames, but they drop color data instead because of bandwidth limitations. It seems nobody believes there's a market for a 120hz free/g sync IPS/PLS at 1440p or above, but I'm not buying another monitor until that changes. I get sick of compromising.

This is a gamer monitor and it's a high end TN panel.

And what have the overclockable Korean monitors have been marketed for all this time? Have you checked one's Ebay page? And yes, it's 10-bit TN and is still TN.

yep, I'm holding out for more 4k options before buying another monitor.

I always use vsync 59\60Hz and i find it a shame you have to run at 144Hz to solve this issue.. A lot of people don't realize that the power usage from a playable 60Hz can mean a 200w electric bill and yes i am sure don't care.

With my current setup games run about 200-220w but once you turn that vsync of you can be looking more 340-390w power usage so to me this is not a solution to the issue.

Never mind payer $800 for TN monitor i am sure they have improved but shit talk about ripping people off..

I'm hoping I get to see one at the Nvidia booth this year at PAX or a local store/friend will have one I can check out in person before buying. I've been excited for this monitor for a while.
Might also wait a little for it to drop in price before picking it up.

Always lots of hate for TN and most of it is people talking out their ass but each to their own.
or in the internet world... your opinion is different from mine so your wrong and ignorant and other hateful speech.

Edit: Linus has a nice video review on it.

LOL try going to an IPS monitor from TN, and you will understand what all the "talking out their ass" comes from.

I have used them and I've even stacked tons of different IPS/TN and whatever my TV (VA I think) together.

Color is subjective. Yes you could go for color accuracy but just because it is color accurate doesn't make something better since color is subjective.
NOW if you are professional in something that you really need color accuracy then I'd agree 100% but just going on a limb here and guessing most people aren't and should just look for what they like.
I know that I like my blacks a little crushed and colors a little more vivid compared to whats color accurate.
I also know that TN fails 100% when it comes to color shift on viewing angles but to me that's not a problem with my computer monitor.
Like I said each to their own and if all you care about is color accuracy that's great.

Now when I said "talking out their ass" that probably came out a little more hostile than it was meant to be.
What I meant by that is I've seen plenty IPS screens look worse then a TN. Most of the time the IPS does look better but not always and a TN panel can look good.
I hate seeing people just write something off because of it just being TN or some other spec on something that can be very subjective. It a shame when people start being extremely narrow minded.

Why am I excited for this monitor? Maybe a few other people share this view. idk.
I've been looking for a new monitor for a few years. I've wanted a high resolution for a while for a better pixel pitch and ever since I tried a high hz monitor I've wanted one of those too.
Having both is not something that has been around 'til this monitor. (Yes I know the Korean monitors but they aren't perfect either)
I had the Asus 144hz monitor and I loved the high hz on it. It didn't have the high resolution I wanted but I was willing to let that go. The problem was the color on that monitor was terrible. Yes I know TN panel but it was even terrible compared to the Asus TN monitor I have now and I have had it for years and years now. So my search for a high hz monitor that had good colors (or as I should put it, good enough for me and I am a picky person) continued. I was about to buy the BenQ one (they have a few models) and from what I saw in a store next to the Asus one is it looked pretty good and had OSD controls I wanted. Then the Asus ROG monitor was announced so I've been excited about that since they said it was a 8-bit panel and a "premium grade TN panel". I was excited to see how the color would look and from reading/watching reviews it's sounding really good overall.
G-sync is also a huge plus and something I wanted so I was really excited about that. Adaptive-sync would work too and would probably be cheaper.
Overall this monitor brings almost everything I want into 1 package. Sure a 4k, 120hz+, super color accurate monitor with no blurring would be awesome but this isn't a perfect world and we are a while from that in price and tech. Even the Asus ROG monitor is pushing it when it comes to the GPU power at this time.
Plus the Asus ROG monitor looks beautiful.

tl;dr: to each their own

I'm not 100% worried about color accuracy with monitors, but viewing angles is another story. I've never seen an IPS look worst in any department than any TN I have seen.

How often do you stare your monitor at from a 40 degree angle? I'm sure that most people stare at their monitors head on.

Which is why i love using my TV as there is no difference from what ever angle you look at it which is perfect as i could be playing some thing like TR on the couch.

Do you know how often I hear that from TN panel gamers, but can't help but laugh. Definitely can't count it on 2 hands.

This is a gaming monitor. Why spam this thread with viewing angle nonsense and TVs? This is a gaming monitor. This is not a TV. A consumer in the market for this monitor sits down in front of their monitor and plays their game. They don't sit down at a 40 degree angle and play their game. Angle view is meaningless when it comes to this monitor. Color accuracy is meaningless when it comes to this monitor. This is a gaming monitor.

You married any kids ?.. if so happen to play games on a PC with them ?.. I game on console too with family and viewing angle is really important.

Or do you just play with your self ? ( pun intended )

Then this monitor is not for you. You are better suited for a TV but if you are going to post in this thread anyway to tell us how this gaming monitor is inadequate for your needs because you need a TV instead then expect someone who wants a gaming monitor for a gaming monitor to post that you're spamming.

Then this monitor is not for you. You are better suited for a TV but if you are going to post in this thread anyway to tell us how this gaming monitor is inadequate for your needs because you need a TV instead then expect someone who wants a gaming monitor for a gaming monitor to post that you're spamming.
it is inadequate for 800$ there should be no viewing issue.

I agree the price is high. Early adopters usually always get screwed. Asus has made it clear why they chose to go with TN panel and not IPS. I won't bore you with every detail but IPS technology isn't able to do 1 ms GTG.

Do you know how often I hear that from TN panel gamers, but can't help but laugh. Definitely can't count it on 2 hands.
Then I guess the millions of us who say that must be on to something. As if we're maybe right.

Secondly, you didn't answer the question. On a scale of "Never" to "Literally all the time" how often do you sit at a 40 degree angle off axis to your monitor?
