    Any idea on pricing, looks very tempting specwise.

    At a guess, that's a £450 monitor.

    We still don't know what the Panel is thought ? Many saying it could be a new TN panel (@ 1440p) rather than a nice IPS ?... Will have to wait to find out more...

    No info about the price? Nevermind, I bet I won't be able to afford one.

    Re: News - ASUS announces ROG Swift PG278Q 27-inch gaming monitor

    With those refresh rates it is most likely a TN panel

    Re: News - ASUS announces ROG Swift PG278Q 27-inch gaming monitor

    I do like the spec on that monitor, it has almost everything I want, except the IPS panel, so I am torn now, do I go for the really good looking TN monitor with 1ms GTG times or the IPS panel from Dell, both are 8 bit/16.7 million colour monitors unless I go for the more expensive U2713H.

    I was that excited about this monitor that in the early hours of this morning I started my own thread but alas, I can't post in the news section so I guess it was missed.

    Seeing as my thread is now redundant can someone delete it please. Thanks.

    Done.

    This was never going to be an IPS monitor, but certainly looks an interesting prospect for those happy with TN.

    Re: News - ASUS announces ROG Swift PG278Q 27-inch gaming monitor

    Surely you are better off not paying the G-Sync premium and putting the money in the GPU to just power through the problem.

    Why not ? IPS panels are getting better and the Korean ones can be over clocked to over 120hz, the advances in panels is coming along nicely... I have a Hazro 27"WC clocked at 90hz without any issues...

    I must say I do agree that this was not going to be a IPS due to the early preview saying nothing about it & if it was an IPS they would be singing about it in the top line !

    Overall hopefully this means cheaper 1440p screens come in to the market & not a ASUS Rog overpriced one like this. The g-sync 24" non Rog ASUS is priced at £440 so I'd see this coming into the price point of around £600, to much for most of us & to much for an TN panel with a Rog name stamped all over it...

    Because it's a "gaming" screen. That means they'll focus on the response time, which means TN looks better - and it'll hit a much better price point. And I'll bet a significant proportion of the customers have no idea what the difference between TN and IPS is.

    I guess so, let's hope we see some nice advances in IPS refreash rates soon ? The gaming thing is a must for some but not for others... Bring on OLED with 500mhz screens
