    Has anyone seen any of the new gaming screens available on hardware sites yet?

    Last I heard was they were to be available in December.

    I'm looking for a new 24" monitor.

    Btw, heard that they will be supported by both amd and nvidia, with no word from Intel yet.

    I believe the older 280, 280x rebrands wont support the dynamic refresh rate features, only the newer 290, 290x, 285 etc. My 7970 is :mad:

    Some conflicting info regarding the LG 34UM67, some say 1080p some say 1440p. Disappointing if 1080p at that size, looks like it based on first impression reviews.

    What the hell, $999.

    FFS, there is no hardware inside the monitor like g-sync ffs, pure bs, should be way cheaper than that.

    early adopters tax to a point but it is a 2560 1440 with all the other higher end gear and If you look at a 1920 144mhz monitor they go for 500/600

    so...yeah I got nothing :) have to wait till there is a few more but kind of puts the royalty free nature of freesync in a doubt

    On the GPU side of the equation AMD Radeon HD 7000, HD 8000, R7 or R9 Series will all support FreeSync for video playback and power saving.

    The Radeon R9 295X2, 290X, R9 290, R9 285, R7 260X and R7 260 GPUs and Kaveri, Kabini, Temash, Beema and Mullins APUs will enjoy dynamic refresh rates for gaming, video playback and power saving.

    Oh, well looks like its a new GPU then too :upset: oh well, expected that

    You do need to factor in that they only work on a select number of AMD cards & with AMD's market share being low it isn't helping.
