    Like the the size of the bezel, about bloody time :rolleyes:

    Wake me up when it is IPS/PLS panel at 2560x1440 120Hz + GSync. :wired:

    Would be awesome.

    Then again I only JUST received my Overlord Tempest screen...............:tired:

    Cheers

    Same here. If it's not an extended color gamut I'm not interested.

    Or 3 :shock:

    Imagine 3 in portrait, IPS, 120Hz+ and GSync at 2560x1440 :leet:

    As you said getting there. Hopefully by the end of the year the above will be a reality. At least Asus is listening to gamers wants/needs :thumbup:

    Imagine the GPU power needed for that!

    I had a 3D vision surround set up a few year ago, and it is amazing - but it gets SOOOOOO hot! You need a dedicated aircon for the room..

    I stopped using Eyefinity on my old 3x24 for this reason as my house didnt have aircon and i would melt.

    Display port only? That will make it harder to run 3 in surround if each 780 has only one DPort each. Need a fancy non reference GPU or something.

    It would have to be dual link tho. Do they exist yet? Last time I checked was only single but that was a while back.
    I hate adapters... It can be buggy.

    I am more worried about how much gpu power you would need to run that.

    It's about time!

    An IPS version would be great, but this is a step in the right direction :thumbup:
