1440p+ monitor with gsync?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

okay, so I am looking for a gsync monitor that has a resolution of 1440p or higher and is 27" or smaller. A few things I also wanted was IPS and curved panels as i will be using three of whatever monitor this is.

For the life of me I cant find even a single one no matter where I look. I understand that this would probably be a super stupidly expensive monitor and with nvidia doing this whole freesync thing that a freesync monitor would probably be better, so you can yell at me if im an idiot for wanting gsync (since gsync monitors are super expensive)

and if it would be better to explain what i want in my monitor heres my use case (in case i missed some things)

i really just need three monitors that follow the following specs

all 27" panels

either all 1440p or 1 1440 2 4k, 2 1440 1 4k, etc

color accuracy is not all that important to me but it should be decently accurate.

refresh rate is maybe looking at 90Hz or higher on the 4k panels (if i get any) and 144Hz+ on the 1440p monitors.

again, gsync would be nice (if possible) but i would at least like freesync if it i cant get a gsync one.

i think that is all, other than connectivity which is DP (obviously)

you do know that Nvidia is supporting Freesync montiors now...right?

My 2 cents is if you're going to be doing a triple monitor configuration stick to the same resolution be that 4K or 1440p. I have a single 4K and 2 1080 panels and even if they were 1440s it'd still be annoying.

1) Dragging between windows has a lot of 'dead' area where you can't move between displays because of the different resolutions.
2) Windows scaling for programs sucks in general, especially when you're mixing resolutions. Some programs will look great on the 4K center display and you move them over and the scaling breaks making it look huge or small etc... usually looks blurry regardless of the program.

So again, I'd recommend sticking with a single resolution for all 3. In which case getting 4K at high refresh with G-sync, IPS, good colour etc... is going to be absurdly expensive ($1000 - $2000 per monitor) so I'd probably skip looking at 4K, because for the price of one monitor you can get all 3 1440p monitors. But I included suggestions for 4K regardless.

4K
Acer Predator X27 bmpiphzx - ~$1800 USD

Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ - ~$1800 USD
Acer Nitro XV273K - ~$1000 USD (Cheapest option, but lacks HDR support like the others have)

1440p Non-Curved
Acer XB271HU  - (~$650 USD) -  IPS + 10 Bit (8 + FRC) + 100% sRGB / 1440p / 165Hz @ 4ms / G-Sync
Asus PG278QR - (~$560 USD) - TN + 8 Bit + 100% sRGB / 1440p / 165Hz @ 1ms / G-Sync
Dell S2716DGR - (~$500 USD) -  TN + 8 Bit + 99% sRGB / 1440p / 144Hz @ 1ms / G-Sync

1440p Curved
Asus ROG Swift PG27VQ - (~$740 USD) - TN + 8 Bit + 95% sRGB / 1440p / 165Hz @ 1ms / G-Sync

The non-curved Acer is the best option of the bunch in terms of display quality with it's IPS and 10bit (8bit + FRC) panel. But otherwise they are all very similar high quality displays. As for curved displays there are not many that fit your requirements other than this Asus as most curved displays are larger than 27" and/or lack G-Sync. The curved display market focuses mainly on ultrawides and curved displays in general are quite expensive for what you're getting compared to flat panels.

i'm sry they don't make curved 16:9 2560x1440p 27'' high refresh IPS monitors...i don't know why...they should...it would be amazing for some games...but they don't make them.

 

If you're willing to get flat panels instead of curved, then my vote is 3 of those:

i like the look of that 1440 curved monitor, i think i will go with that.
i also was looking at the 1440p 27" curved MSI optix monitor

Glad I was of help then, and yes that MSI monitor is a good option as well but lacked FreeSync so I didn't include it. It's an SVA panel which is a middle ground between TN and IPS, and has good colour coverage as well. However, it's only 8 bit rather than the 8 bit + FRC Acer I recommended above so it's a bit of downgrade in that regard.
