    1440p 120hz me likey.

    Scared of what the price will be once it's actually released in the UK though.

    Hasn't AMD tried to say that G-Sync is pointless?

    If you're after a 2560x1440 IPS panel with G-sync then Overlord, sellers of the overclockable Korean IPS monitors, announced that they are working with Nvidia on G-sync.

    They didn;t quite tell the whole truth. VESA do mention the potential for varying the VBLANK timing in standards documentation. What the standards don't mention is a set method of reacting to that variance. It is perfectly within the standard for a monitor to just display "NO SIGNAL", show garbage, or show duplicate frames if it gets odd VSYNC timings. There's no requirement for monitors to handle arbitrary VBLANK triggering, so the vast majority don't. I'd bet money that the demo laptops (Satellite Click) they used in their freesync demo will only work due to having one specific model of panel, and if another panel (of equivalent LVDS timings) were substituted it would not function.

    That is what G-Sync is for: providing a standard display controller so it can be assumed the variable VBLANK timing will be interpreted correctly. That, and allowing an accelerated read-in and read-out due to that big bank of RAM on-board (for increased memory bandwidth rather than storage space).

    The problem with IPS is that by nature it's response rate is very slow and overclocking it can produce improper images. If it was so good big companies would have jumped on it ages ago.

    For sure PG278Q will be below $500.
