IPS vs TN
Anyone know when a 1080p 24'' IPS monitor with gsync 120/144hz will be out on the market?
My current monitor is dying and i can only find overly expensive TN monitors. And of course the only IPS monitor with gsync they release is 1440p.
Don't buy gsync until freesync comes out.
At the moment gsync is the only adaptive refresh rate on the market, so they command a massive price premium for them. Not to mention that gsync will never be cheaper than freesync purely because nvidia has a $200 DRM module in the monitor that you pay for.
Adaptive refresh rate is extremely young.
Is there really that much of a difference between triple-buffering and using gsync? I'm happy with all my games forcing tiple buffering with D3DO.
I'm using a panasonic plasma for games, everyone will tell you TVs are bad but I don't give a shit. it looks better than any IPS panel and the motion resolution is pure porn.
I need something with good blacks but the only VA panel I see is that forts or whatever at 24" 1080. Is there anything bigger.
How bad is it to get a 35-40 inch plasma tv? I'd still be stuck at 1080.
And you'd still be stuck at either 60Hz or 120Hz inputs. Most likely 60Hz. Not to mention the last good plasma line (Samsung PNF8500) sold out a while back, and plasma is no longer produced.
If you need high contrast at 24", there's this:
It's well reviewed and uses a VA panel and has a high refresh rate.
My problem is that IPS 1080p dont exist yet. The only IPS monitor with gsync is 1440p. When can we expect one to be released if it havent been announced yet? It cant be that hard to make one.
the only 24'' 144hz gsync monitors out have TN panels. I've never owned a TN before and i've heard so many horror stories after reading about it on the internet. Im poor and i dont want to waste my money unless it will keep me satisfied for years.
My current monitor is 8 years old and its starting to die out. I dont know how much longer i can wait for an IPS monitor to come out.
We're still in the early adoption/format war stage of G-sync/Freesync. Wait until the dust settles before you shell out a ton of money. You don't want to be like those people who own HD-DVD players.
I get 50-60fps in CS:GO at 1440p with an AMD 5850 from 2009. I came very close to getting a 970 during the Christmas sales but had to spend the money to fix my car instead. I was pissed at the time but now I'm very glad I avoided that fiasco.
A card with gimped architecture isn't "fine" at any resolution.
Missing out on gsync hurts me inside. 500 euros for a monitor is more than i would like to spend, but its a part of my mentality to go big or go home.
970 is more than enough for 1080p.
>missing out of proprietary shill shit which is nothing more than a gimmick at this point
seriously? freesync does the exact same thing without forcing manufacturers to overspend.
while at the same time you bought an overpriced shitty gpu with gimped vram...
why is there so much stupid on this site.
Gee, you sure are stupid. IPS is too slow for that, no matter how high you crank the frequency, the crystals won't shift faster.
Get pic related and a good enough graphics card to achieve stable 120fps. Gsync would be useless then anyway.
