Just curious, anyone know the difference between DyAc and DyAc+?

The Zowie rep told me that Dyac+ is the same thing as Dyac, it's just tuned for the newer panel. I don't know why they felt they needed to give it a different name, but it is the same thing as Dyac on the XL2546, just tuned for the panel in the XL2546S/K.

Can anyone who owns the XL2546K check if you have these issues ?

I found this(https://youtu.be/LikiFdmRIBM?t=428) response time chart of the XL2546K in a japanese PG259QN review, apparently it goes as low as 1.29ms with what I guess is AMA Premium.

But this is not the end.
For the sake of using the exact same reviewer measuring G2G with the same method (since we all know sites like Rtings/Tftcentral/.. measure G2G differently) compare these two reviews, XL2546k vs XL2546s from a notorious korean reviewer:

XL2546K: http://playwares.com/dpreview/57942615#

XL2546S: http://playwares.com/index.php?_filter= ... l=57798881#

AMA High on the XL2546S is 2.125ms vs 1.165ms from the -K version.
AMA Premium on the XL2546S is 1.545ms vs 1.145ms from the -K version.

As you can see there isn't basically any difference between High or Premium on the -K version in terms of G2G:
In addition, there is no ghosting (reverse afterimage) phenomenon that can be issued to fast-moving images in the entire AMA setting, so it will be effective for configuring the optimal gaming environment in the environment where Premium is the highest level
but Zowie said that both monitors are using the exact same panel, can a reduction of respectively 1ms on High and 0.4ms on Premium be justified just by panel tuning? Are the -K panels the same panels but with better bins?

The improvements in G2G are a quantifiable difference, which at first was making me think that the new Zowie was actually using a newer panel, which was the opposite of what Zowie Support said however WBW and GBG stayed the exact same in the two models so I'm more prone to believe that Zowie only came up with a more refined Overdrive tuning.

We need some western reviewers with response time and input lag measurements. If I hear Linus say how he can't feel any lag one more time I'm gonna scream.

Thank you for this. I still cant believe we cant get exact numbers....horrifying
