Iiyama 28" 4k adaptive sync/freesync monitor launched (with free mail in upgrade)

 Share

Over at Overclockers.co.uk, the Iiyama ProLite B2888UHSU-B1 has now been launched with Adaptive Sync/freesync support.

 

The monitor is a 28" 4k monitor with a TN panel, does not have native support however, but will come with a free upgrade, where you mail in your monitor for a hardware or firmware upgrade, for full Adaptive Sync support, which is the VESA DisplayPort hardware standard for synced fps, used in AMD's Freesync software, similar to Nvidia's proprietary G-sync solution.

 

Price? £389.99 inc VAT. This is marginally more than a standard 28" TN 4k monitor.

Does it actually have Free Sync out of the box though because if it doesn't what is the point.

It seems  like it has full hardware support for adaptive sync (free sync is the AMD driver implementation, using Adaptive Sync hardware). However it also seems like the monitor requires a firmware update to actually utilize it at a later time. This requires the consumer to send it to Iiyama for the firmware update.

Yea no thanks. I think I will just get G-Sync. At least I know that works out of the box now.

A TN panel? How exciting. /s

"Muh color accuracy"

"Look how fucking perfect this blue is"

"IPS rules"

 

Don't be an elitist, IPS is only really necessary for professional content creation. And even then compression destroys all that hard work.

iiyama will offer a free of charge upgrade service to upgrade your iiyama 4k monitor to support VESA Adaptive Sync for no charge, you will just have to cover shipping charges.

 

 

No thanks, I'll just wait until they ship one already supporting it.  And also who is iiyama?  I have never heard of them before.

Nah IPS is necessary unless you like colour banding, shit blacks and whites and colour shift. Personally I don't like any of those things but if you do then more power to you.

Color banding happens on any type of display, shit blacks and whites can also happen on any display. Every display has shit blacks compared to amoled. And TN panels really don't have issues with color shift anymore, just watch Linus' Benq XL2420G or whatever it is review.

 

Seriously, IPS isn't necessary if you aren't a professional content creator.

I'm more than happy with my old BenQ TN panel, I paid a fair amount for it many years ago and I am still happy with it's performance today.    I think for majority of gamers and enthusiasts, the quality/features of a product trumps the technology used 9 times out of 10.

Guess everyone who games on an IPS display is a moron then.

No, it means they spent money on something that wasn't really necessary. If you have the money and you want to spend it, then good on you, that's your choice.

But what you're saying is that all non-IPS panels are terrible and should die, and that's just uninformed.

IPS is really nice. I have one and I love the crap out of it however there is no 4K IPS G-Sync monitor and we probably won't be getting one for ages so there is nothing wrong with this monitor. Other then it doesn't actually have Free Sync out of the box.

I'm super skeptical of the free upgrade. Things like that don't always go as planned.

That's actually significantly more expensive than 28" 4K in Aus.  and we usually have to suffer the "fuck you Australia tax".

 

I can get a Samsung or AOC 28" 4K for about $250 cheaper.

at least $50, you'd be better of just buying a G-sync by the time you factored in all shipping and the messing around.

 

Surely you can get a 28" 4K for under $600 over there?

Not that I've ever seen. Still, $600 is a hell of a lot of money for me right now. I'm hoping/praying for the day that they drop down to below $400

 

I stand corrected. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007617%20600338147&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=30

 

But judging by the reviews, they all suck.

I haven't heard this brand Iiyama before so there are no guarantees it won't suck either.

Or just wait a tad bit longer so that this (and others) monitor comes with Adaptive Sync out of the box. This is obviously just because they want to launch the monitor now, but they also want it to have Adaptive Sync, so they compromise (and beeing able to mark it as Adaptive Sync support will draw extra attention too it)

Still waiting for that screen with IPS color and viewing angles with TNs speed. 1440p with gsync or free sync (or both) and ill pay just about anything for it.

Still waiting on a quality 4K IPS display with adaptive sync. I love me some accurate color reproduction.

I have both an IPS 1440p monitor and a TN 4K monitor, and yes the IPS does offer better color accuracy, but the 4K TN is definitely not a slouch.

 

It's unfortunate that users jump to conclusions based solely on specifications (panel type in this case) because they might be missing out on something terrific.
