AOC have a 200hz freesync 35" Ultrawide for $800 though
If that was 3440x1440 it was be awesome! but its only 2560x1080
Whenever I see my mate playing games on his 27in 1080p panel I cringe. it looks so bad
Then again... when I play console turd games on my 1440p they look equally shitty.
yup love the competition
Shame Vega wont be as much..
If I was gonna get a Korean monitor I'd probably get the Crossover 27 FAST 144 (Freesync 48 - 60) or for a branded one I'd get the ASUS MG279Q, I don't really have much interest (or room) for triple ultrawides .
Damn, didn't look that close. I didn't mind 2560x1080 but since going 3440x1440 I couldn't go back
haha i was going to say your on a low res LCD and missed that detail
Walker its a Freesync LCD.
I've done the Korean monitor thing and tbh you're better off going with a name brand, especially for FreeSync certification.
I have also gone with a Korean monitor. You get what you pay for. Just get a decent name brand one.
Just an FYI on FreeSync
tl;dr Not all monitors are FreeSync certified (even though they might say they are), AMD has a list here you can crosscheck with: http://www.amd.com/en-us/innovations/software-technologies/technologies-gaming/freesync
Unfortunately there are people who still do not understand the above (and I don't blame anyone who doesn't, its confusing)
Kudos to AMD for trying to bring out an alternative to G-Sync, but it's simply not in the same ballpark. One day, it will catch up, but in its current state, its....
1. Range in which freesync operates is generally poor (something like 45-90Hz or less for most of the monitor choices out there / IPS).
2. You have the issues above where manufacturers are using the branding without it meeting spec, instead of just branding it adaptive sync.
Both points I believe should be resolved with Freesync 2 somewhat, but I'm done waiting for the perfect monitor. They don't exist and we're all still waiting for the paper launch of Vega, I don't think the argument of AMD + Freesync is cheaper compared to Nvidia+Gsync is even worth mentioning due to the lack of monitor selection on the Freesync side, but I think a lot of us are still holding onto some sort of miracle pricing in regards to Vega that makes it a no brainier purchase. We'll find out soon enough I guess, I still remember my 9800XT or whatever it was back in the day.
Without taking this thread too far off topic I'll address your two points in short
1. It's down the the scaler used by the manufacturer, I have 3 FreeSync Monitors (1080p 30-144hz, 1440 Ultawide 40-100hz and 4k 40-60hz)
2. That is something AMD is trying to crack down on but it's not that easy, if you notice in the Ebay link for the CrossOver monitor they do not use any AMD or FreeSync logos, only the term.
3. There are more FreeSync Monitors on the market than GSync ones.
4. Less than a week to go guys
Just a small note, that Crossover monitor I linked is actually on AMD's site, it's the reason I was considering it if I went that route, although it doesn't hit the 144Hz Freesync range.
It is yes, but the 3440x1440 Crossover isn't.
It might be going through certification atm but I've never heard of one going on sale before it passes qualification.
Well that list is a bit out of date anyway because the XG2703 is still on there even though Viewsonic scrapped it with no warning so yeah, doesn't exist .
Still has FreeSync certification regardless (helpful for the used market as well)
Some feedback from the Portland pdxlan -> http://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-rx-vega-challenge-pdxlan/
I know, still it's kinda stupid for a product that wont ever exist.
Wonder if it's true that Vega was the "right" system.
Surprised no one tried to peek under the cloth covers to see the monitor stands at either event.
I hope it's as good as Ryzen sounds
