    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    I can confirm that this is in fact FALSE. My sources said it's going to be £35.99p

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    Yeah I was worried about the 100Hz ULMB. I guess we still don't have "The Perfect Monitor." I'm definitely jealous you got yours already. Local PC shop here doesn't even know when they're getting it yet. I need me some Titan X cards and this monitor. Like Pronto. :(

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    You can still get the ROG Swift in Canada for $867 CAD before taxes. It's a tough decision to make as I'm thinking about the $133 savings with guaranteed Nvidia 3D Vision support and 1ms response time, to an unknown price unknown availability IPS from Acer with potentially no support for Nvidia...

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    I responded to another uninformed individual on the interwebs earlier, who had a similar mindset. To save myself some time, I'm just going to copy/paste what I wrote him for your benefit: I don't have a GSYNC monitor yet. But I will be picking up the new 144Hz 1440p IPS GSYNC monitor from...

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    GSYNC integration doesn't cost more than $100~ to add in for manufacturers. But manufacturers also want to profit from selling the premium feature. Otherwise they're just putting in a feature that costs more money that only Nvidia will profit from, in the hopes that the GSYNC feature will...

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    Out of curiousity...if it's a 4ms response time panel, and 144Hz is about 7ms between frames, why would there be a difference in smoothness with a panel that has 2ms response time or even 1ms response time when you have ULMB active? If I understand it correctly, the increase in response time...

    I hope they start making more ultra wide screen displays so people stop doing multi-monitor setups for panoramic gaming. :P I never understand the joy of wide screen when there was even the slightest bit of bezel visible.

    Expect it to be in the $899-$1199 CAD range depending on how aggressively they plan to challenge Asus who happens to be their only competitor. My personal guess would be $999 CAD.

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    I gave the ROG Swift a pass (publicly so) due to the filter. I understand some people can benefit from it. But when you put anything...regardless of how "tuned" or how "aggressive" you claim that it isn't, between the display and your eyes, you are taking away from image quality. ROG Swift...

    Crysis 3 : 20-30% Framerate and Performance Boost (CPU-Limited Users Only)

    Doesn't work for everybody. As for the app, the link has been updated. The author has linked to my video and website. The version that was previously distributed was the free version. Not the paid version.

    Crysis 3 : 20-30% Framerate and Performance Boost (CPU-Limited Users Only)

    I'm not aware of any recording apps that will record both the desktop and in-game as you tab back/forth. Unless I was running in Windowed mode, which would rob the game of performance. As would the screen capture itself. I could have recorded and stitched videos together as well. But then...

    Crysis 3 : 20-30% Framerate and Performance Boost (CPU-Limited Users Only)

    The proof was in the video...GPU's were sitting at 40%-50% usage. Problem is with the way the grass/foliage is handled. All its movement is calculated by the CPU. That's why they had to run it at a lower 30Hz rate. The limitation isn't from a theoretical standpoint. It's from a very real...

    Crysis 3 : 20-30% Framerate and Performance Boost (CPU-Limited Users Only)

    That's just because I forgot to turn the monitor back from 126Hz (testing) to 120Hz (stable). It's monitor artifacts. Not caused by the game or the application.

    Crysis 3 : 20-30% Framerate and Performance Boost (CPU-Limited Users Only)

    For those of you who are CPU limited and are tired of the low performance in Crysis 3, you may want to check out this video. If you are GPU capped, then you likely won't see any benefit. My results were a 27% FPS increase on a 4945MHz i7 3770K with Tri-Sli GTX 680's. GPU's still had room to go...

    GTX Titan (final specs and bench)?

    You're certainly correct. I know the kepler series actually has h264 encoder built in to the hardware outside of generic gpu acceleration. I wonder if that helps at all. Or how Tesla or Titan compare to the 580 they tested in the article. Sounds like something I may need to do a review on? =D
