    nice, now scale it to 4k at around 43" please.
    Add an GPU in middle price range that can handle that and it would be perfect.

    I'm not sure there's a system out there capable of 360fps in anything other than CS:GO!

    I think I remember seeing that when tests were done with 60/144/240 the accuracy was more towards 144.
    In my head I can kind of see a logic to that in that unless you can constantly drive at the upper frame rate I think there is a higher FPS deviation that can be just as bad as having too slow a speed i.e. inconsistent visual timing verse to slow verse in game mechanics. when on a powerful card selecting the middle ground so to speak guarantees you can have 144 in sync with very little if any deviation and your reactions can align to that. if you you aiming for 360 but the cards rendering is wondering between just example not real life but lets say you got 188 to 278 frames per sec that's 90 fps of timing deviation verse if set for 144hz solid with zero deviation as CPU & GPU can keep up. Just a view I perceive possibly not really looked at by our hardware manufactures.

    Re: Asus launches the 360Hz ROG Swift PG259QN gaming monitor

    um....
    a native 240Hz refresh rate; six times faster than a conventional 60Hz monitor
    pretty sure thats 4 times faster at 240Hz, at 360Hz it would be 6x....

    And here I am wanting a faster than 60Hz 4K+ display with good quality image reproduction (ie real 10bit IPS, not this 8bit frc stuff)... not everyone is using their pc's primarily for gaming and would still like some of the benefits of faster refresh rates.

    Getting 1080p and 1440p monitor review fatigue now LUL

    Would probably be easier to review by panel than by manufacturer.

    Wasn't Acer supposed to be doing a gaming 4k screen in August?

    I'd give a few hundred more for 16:10 30in gsync. I could live with a 27 16:10 but it must have the NV chip for gsync, I don't take 2nd best for 12 years (my current dell 16:10 still lives on! yeah!). $20-30 a year means nothing to me over it's life for a much better experience for a decade! 16:9 just needs to DIE already! It's only good for spreadsheets and movies. I use neither at home on my PC.

    Re: Asus launches the 360Hz ROG Swift PG259QN gaming monitor

    The article mentions this monitor uses a TN panel, but ASUS states here that it's actually an IPS panel (or "Fast IPS" as it's dubbed). And here I was about to write a snarky "TN" quip...

    I doubt Flight Sim 2020 will be able to run at that for a while
