    I'm curious to see the PG278Q reviewed. If it reviews well it could be my next monitor.

    Also, why is this live blog is reverse chronological order while the Apple one earlier today was in forward chronological order?

    What the hell is it with the booth babes? Stop it, Asus! Reply

    Interesting to see them moving into gaming peripherals, though it's only natural I guess, possibly more so than other markets they've moved into (sound cards? still clinging to my STX as a cheap/compact amp/DAC internal solution). Those console-like boxes are bound to be a lot more interesting once Valve gets Steam OS out the door... Not to me personally, but it's a big development for the gaming market at large. Reply

    In my opinion a "console PC gaming" will mostly be interesting to those who play on game consoles now, and it will only interest them if the entry price is around the same price as those consoles - which is $400 for a complete system. "System" meaning nothing else needed except the game.

    The Steam OS seems to have some sort of magic appeal about it. It's only advantage is price, and right now you give up graphics performance as well as a bunch of other things a PC can do. I think it's a good thing in that it has made console gamers think more about getting a PC instead, but other than that - they have a long way to go before I'd consider buying or recommending a "Steam Machine" to friends and family.

    Yeah... they need to stop with the booth/stage babes. That's absurd and juvenile.

    Anyways, some of these products look really good. I'm particularly interested in their 27" 1440p 144 Hz Gsync monitor... I am not sure I would actually buy it, since I'm looking for a larger form factor 4k screen myself, but it looks really tempting. Can't wait to read reviews.

    Sex sells, especially in Asia. We haven't evolved into eunuchs yet.:)

    Anyway, I wish 1440p 144 Hz Gsync came in a 21:9 aspect ratio like the recently released LG 34UM95 and it would be awesome

    Future G-sync monitor might come in other resolutions. They are not limited to 2560x1440. If they sell enough of these 1440p panels, I'm sure we'll see this technology in use in more monitors at any res in the future. I do like the 2560x1080 proportions as well. If companies would have made them more responsive, less input lag and with higher refresh rates (120Hz+), I really think they would have seen more sales Reply

    I wouldn't expect a next-generation of G-Sync monitors. Since VESA has accepted the alternative FreeSync technology into the Displayport 1.2a spec. Hopefully everyone will support it on everything this way, it's a lot cheaper to implement than G-Sync and the results are very similar. Reply
  • Ubercake - Thursday, June 05, 2014 - link

    Both G-sync and this yet-to-be seen FreeSync will involve some sort of electronics modification to the standard we see in current displays. Since you say FreeSync is less expensive to implement, what is the cost difference in implementation of G-sync versus FreeSync? Is there a source that shows this difference?

    Also, are there any display manufacturers with plans to produce FreeSync monitors?
  • Ubercake - Tuesday, June 03, 2014 - link

    I will definitely be picking up one of those PG278Q monitors in July. I would pre-order one now if I could. G-sync is awesome tech. Reply

    A GTX 750 doesn't match a Playstation 4, does it? I'm pretty sure it doesn't... would be cool to have at least an equivalent GPU, BUT I do like the idea of a console-esque PC that actually runs much quieter than a PS4 and runs Windows!

    Let it have user replaceable parts including any GPU you want :-D
