Not sure this is a review or advertisement. Better off reading PCper articles on this stuff. One paragraph on freesync doesn't tell us if it's ghosting etc. IT works or it doesn't is NOT good enough, as many have shown it works, but sucks currently.
from the writers comments:
"The TCON issues I pointed out were common to both G-Sync *and* FreeSync panels. The other issues we've pointed out in the past (overdrive not functioning in VRR, behavior at low refresh rates, etc) were specific to FreeSync *only*. Calling it like we see it hurts AMD at present because their tech (as implemented currently) is currently (and obviously) falling behind. We, as enthusiasts, naturally want to see them catch up just as much as the AMD fans, but for now it is what it is."
We need you to actually TEST freesync to find out if it's fixed. Most people should just wait for Freesync GEN2 or GEN3 to see if they fix it at some point, until PROVEN otherwise. I can't believe you put a stamp of approval on a product without actually testing the main feature of the product, inside and out. The 4 articles PCper did are on the first page there.
When will they put out a 9-240 range monitor like their chart says? Gen2? I came to read an article on freesync. I mean freesync dissected, showing strengths, weaknesses of the freesync stuff in it or if it's all fixed up, and a comparison to gsync of course. But what I got is a "it's in there" instead. Don't get me wrong, of course you have to run the other tests (to show how good the actual monitor itself is), but freesync is the selling point here and at this price it should be tested inside out.
AMD claimed a month ago they'd have multi-gpu drivers coming too, so that needs proving too (that was Apr13th, in techreport's article on this monitor tested today):
Note how much of the article is dedicated to freesync vs. gsync debate
Even including discussions about issues with AMD and NV employees.
If we're out here trying to figure out who has the best monitor with this tech (either tech), it would seem the reviews should show that as a major point of interest. Price doesn't matter? Again, I'm confused after all the "freesync is free" talk.
"It’s not cheap but once you’ve experienced the frame-rate matching offered by FreeSync, you won’t care how much it costs. AMD users finally have their solution and it’s a good one. "
Uhh....You have to TEST freesync to say that, not give it lip service right? According to all the Nvidia bashers on this site, everyone cares about the cost...LOL.
