So this is it, huh? 144hz IPS with blur reduction?

No freesync/gsync I take it?

Hmm. This is the perfect CSGO Monitor.

It's possible AMD made an error -- referring to other IPS FreeSync monitors.

I've never seen an IPS panel with a "1ms GtG" rating, so I'm needing a few confirmations...

Fingers secretly crossed, though!

Yeah, for sure. The problem is that a LOT of people here wont buy something until you've given it the green light Chief.

I just saw this monitor in operation at CES 2015 in AMD's showroom:

It looked like an 8bit TN to me; better than average for TN, but not with IPS viewing angles.

Since Gsync can't run with ULMB mode active, I was wondering if Benqs motion blur reduction will work while freesync is active.
Any word on that?
