    Why HDMI 1.4 and DP 1.2?

    Re: AOC AGON AG271UG 27-inch premium gaming monitor

    The Freesync AOC AGON AG322QCX 32" model i would say it a better option.

    Yes its 1440p panel but you get a VA panel 31.5" monitor with 4ms and 144hz at £519 vs Gsync £699 for 27" 4K but only 60hz and 4ms

    Out of the 2 the Freesync version seems much better as a user experience and £180 cheaper?

    Are any of these monitors HDR enabled?

    Yes, judging from reviews of other models.

    Nvidia GPUs don't speak Freesync, and AMD GPUs don't speak G-Sync (I think).

    G-Sync & Freesync are just different enough to be incompatible.

    With all the 144hz around, is a 60hz really a Gaming monitor? Is there anything that isn't getting the "Gaming" suffix?

    Freesync is AMD only and Gsync is Nvidia only that's for sure.

    Point is though when looking at the features/performance of both screens vs cost, it seems to be a much better deal going for the AMD setup?

    Pixel density is good Dell do a 25" 4k even - one's sat on my colleague's desk next to me.

    Cr@ig, 1440p high refresh vs 4k normal refresh are for quite different uses so you can't say one is better than the other in general. The former will be better for twitch based shooters etc, while the latter will be better for RTS and non-gaming tasks.

    GSync will forever be incompatible with AMD cards, but Freesync is built on a standard that NVidia choose not to adhere to. Meaning, they COULD be compatible with Freesync monitors on GeForce, they just aren't because it would be pointless to spend all that dough on Gsync if you could just use a (much) cheaper Freesync monitor instead. For as long as Gsync's extra hardware and GeForce's better benchmarking performance hold true, Gsync will survive because it is essentially the only option.

    What... what do you DO with 65 inches of screen space? Do you have some fancy artwork open across half of your screen, that automatically rotates through a gallery's collection, for aesthetically pleasing and calming effect while working on the other half?
