When can we expect reasonably price Freesync 2 monitors based off this panel? I've been on 1080p 144hz for years now and want to upgrade soon but i don't want to pay the Nvidia tax.

what's the hype about 1440p 240hz? 1080p 240hz is hard enough to achieve as it is unless I'm missing something.

240hz for esports 1440p for normal games

Yes, many 1440p monitors can be run at 720p and 1080p too.

There are many esports players that run their 1080p monitors at lower resolution anyway, so it's not different. 1440p will look better quality for downconversion tasks than 1080p, so that's another advantage. Assuming the panel can use the lagless-method of scaling (linebuffered scaling or realtime scaling, not framebuffered scaling).

Another monitor that vanishes off the planet. God the display industry sucks.
