Re: Official Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN Owners Thread

Is this problem because I am still on the GTX 970? Any information or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. It is the 970. You might be able to get 360 Hz working at reduced blankings or slightly lower resolution via ToastyX CRU. I think it's the pixel clock bandwidth budget. It was h...

Re: Official Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN Owners Thread

Will this monitor work properly with GTX 980Ti? I've seen someone complaining in a comment at one of the biggest stores in my country that PG259QN did not work as intended on GTX 970, store support answered that customer, they said a newer graphics card with DP 1.4 support is needed. Apparently my G...

Re: BenQ Zowie XL2546K 240hz TN

Personally I love strobing, it does a great job not only in the way it helps understanding every piece of information during teamfights in games like Overwatch but it helps even in games like R6S for recoil control (it mitigates the blur created from recoil shaking). Monitors are a very subjective ...

Re: BenQ Zowie XL2546K 240hz TN

Well, I think it's also safe to say it's subjective, and would explain why our experiences in that matter vary :) Even though I admit that I saw less smearing on 240 Hz TN in UFO Test, the image itself was still sharper and clearer on 280 Hz IPS regardless of added smearing, and what's the most imp...

Re: BenQ Zowie XL2546K 240hz TN

Compare 2 of the best 240hz TN with one of the best tuned 240hz IPS, respectively using the best overdrive for each monitor. https://i.imgur.com/tIIEBSg.png I'd say that the Benq is still the best, it clearly suffers from overshoot compared to the KD25F, so you might prefer the latter if you are se...

Re: BenQ Zowie XL2546K 240hz TN

guys i just bought a vg259qm and i am doing very well but until i buy a zowie i will not be happy. I would like to try Dyac, but what I would like to know is that, since xl2546k costs much more than the old model, taking away the aesthetic differences, is there a substantial difference compared to ...

Re: NEW Benq Zowie Monitors Speculation/Info Thread (XL2546K-B, XL2546K, XL2411K)

I'm hoping we will see a 1440p 240hz 27in with dyac+. Highly doubtful. Zowie is specifically focused on competitive FPS e-sports players, and vast majority of them use 24.5" 1080p monitors, it's a preferred standard and a tournament standard apparently. Most of serious Counter-Strike players don't ...

Re: Is there strobing that doesn't hurt your eyes?

That looks like a good model. I can't find any release info online, when does it release? It's already released, but availability varies depending on region apparently. I contacted BenQ directly some time ago, they said XL2546K should be available in my country mid October, or at least that's what ...

Re: The Official *Asus VG259QM* Owners Thread (+ Secret Overdrive)

Not to go off topic here but I have always found this fascinating. Off the top of your head, are you aware of any resources that talk in depth about the various aiming techniques? Not really, no. I only described how my aiming developed, I never really researched this topic. Not so sound overly odd...

Re: Is there strobing that doesn't hurt your eyes?

Out of all monitors I tested, the only strobing technology I found usable was the one from Zowie, it's called Dynamic Accuracy (DyAc) and it does not impact brightness whatsoever. All other strobing techs were just too dim for me, brightness impact was significant, and I really need my display prett...
