So I've done some gaming on it. This is definitely the best VA panel I've used, but of course at the end of the day it is still a VA panel and it does indeed suffer from some weakness in pixel response. But it wasn't like I was expecting AUO and LG/Nvidia to come up with some black magic to give this thing TN response times. I think it's safe to say that as long as you're not a hardcore competitive gamer, in which case a 32 inch display probably isn't even the ideal size for you to even begin with, you will be happy with this monitor's performance. Here's just a small and quick example of some of the weak transitions. Crysis 3 with everything set to low in order to push a constant 162fps.
Ya in my testing it is as fast as the fastest 165 Hz gaming IPS. That is pretty impressive considering the only thing faster is TN, and you have much better contrast than both TN and IPS and no IPS glow.
Yeah especially with the Highest gamma mode 3 at a distance of 90-100cm, is it still "washed out"?
I definitely prefer mine with 60% NVIDIA color saturation. I think any monitor that lends itself to needing color saturation adjustments to make it "pop" I would consider washed out in stock form. But the term "Washed out" I think is very subjective anyway. As an OLED user, anything LCD is going to be hard to satisfy me in the image quality department.
