If anyone wants to know, today I checked out Jamppi's (CS:GO pro player) stream on Twitch while I was browsing CS:GO streams, and I noticed he was using some monitor different than what one would usually see on pro player's desk. I did a quick search and it turns out that professional S-tier CS:GO team ENCE is currently already testing ASUS PG259QN 360 Hz monitor. They are the first high level CS:GO team to switch to 360 Hz IPS. All five ENCE players are using it now, which is also confirmed by prosettings.net. I'd say this is kind of big, I think it's the first time ever CS:GO pros actually use an IPS panel (it's also kind of big that first 360 Hz panel is an IPS one, in fact). It's interesting to me whether ENCE players decide to keep PG259QN or not (or some other 360 Hz IPS in the future).

I remain undecided with my choice, I'd like to test these 360 Hz IPS monitors... and I still have HP Omen X25f and BenQ Zowie XL2546K to test as well.

that is indeed interesting. i'm looking forward to your testing of 360hz and xl2546K. especially their comparison.
first gen of 360hz do seem promising. i just feel they're not quite there yet.
