I'm sure all the niggles will be worked out in short order. Heck, I was even able to play BF2 with a few tweaks going from 4:3 to 16:10.

I'm with SKY on this one. I used to make fun of gamers on 120~144Hz 1080P displays, until I experienced it while making a 360 degree turn in a FPS. I thought FPSs weren't my thing but it turned out turning fast with slower refresh rates gave me motion sickness. All gone when I switched to faster refresh rates.

If you play FPSs on 60Hz, you don't know what you're missing.

It would be nice to have the 4K 60Hz display as well for other games (CIV4, SC2, etc)

I find that 120hz running lightboost is my favourite. I used to get motion sickeness as well. I'm hoping that gsync will be a good substitute to lightboost.

Someone mentioned before that g-sync incorporates lightboost or something to that effect.
Wanna try then buy myself.

Debating on this ... or buying a G-Sync module for my VG248QE.

I am perfectly happy with 1080P at the moment... don't have the appetite to upgrade further to feed 1440P at over 100fps :|

LOL @ gsync

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/ves...ync,26765.html

It's done. Your new DP 1.2 display will support it without a cent. The mere attempt of Nvidia to make money out of whatever-sync is shot down and ridiculed.

There's FAR more to G-SYNC than what the DP standard has though.

Adaptive Sync has the capability at some point to become what G-SYNC is but it certainly isn't the same thing at this point in time.

But it will be. And those are the monitors to get. They are already working to incorporate the new VESA standards into the. Shouldn't be long now I suspect. By long, I mean a year or less.

It will be in YEARS. Not months.

Remember, this does absolutely nothing to address signal sync (not to be confused with monitor synchronization) between the output device and the monitor. Nor does it address input lag.

Yes there are parallels between G-SYNC and Adaptive Sync but their end results won't be necessarily comparable.

I will than likely will be grabbing this display. But honestly I couldn't care less about gsync. I just want a 2560x1440 120Hz with backlight strobing.
