Re: 27" 165hz IPS 2560x1440 ViewSonic

USD1217 for the -GS version, according to TFT Central. Hope it's got fast enough pixel transitions to make the 165Hz mode non-blurry

Re: The holy grail of monitors?

My dream monitor? Probably a 21:9 40" 3D 8k 480Hz flatscreen CRT...minus the niggling little issues that affect CRT, of course.

What a strange and wonderful thing. Thanks for sharing. How does that resolution look on a 24" panel?

TestUFO, Windows 10, and Edge

Just upgraded to Windows 10. Can still successfully overclock my 2560x1440 IPS to 120Hz using ToastyX's AMD pixel clock patcher and CRU.exe I've verified that the screen is not skipping frames, by using Refresh Rate Multitool.

Re: Why aren't gamers worshipping at the altar of strobing?

I think the best solution to deal with both stutter (G-Sync) and anti-blur (ULMB) would be to have 1000 Hz monitors. The problem with stutter is that if the GPU isn't capable of rendering a frame every 16.6ms, you will see some frames shown for 33.3ms. And if the GPU is really fast, you will see so...

Re: 4K IPS FreeSync monitor by ASUS [ROG PG27AQ]

Re: Best yet cheapest gaming monitor for 2015?

"Best yet cheapest gaming monitor" is a little like a restaurant's "finest, cheapest champagne," i.e., A contradiction in terms.
