this is a great panel if your going vega, but if your doing that your doing it wrong already, imo
What would you say is better?
G-sync + pascal card will cost a whole lot more while freesync + Vega is actually a decent cheaper alternative given the recent benchmark of Vega cards.
Unless there's something about freesync that I should know about
if i were in the market now i would probably go 1080 ti and this monitor, with decently high settings it will lock in at least 120 fps stable, which i would lock in and not worry about adaptive sync.
with this monitor and vega 64 you'll most likely end up with sup 100 fps in games that aren't dota/lol/overwatch, but who knows with driver improvements. Depending on where vega price goes i would most likely still go green.
btw i have a 1080 ti and a 60 hz 4k free-sync monitor(27 inch). Its nice and i don't mind scaling issues that much, but if i were to do it again i would go with a large 1440p ultra-wide as per the recommendation of most users who've tried such a screen
search google for "1440p 144hz freesync 32" ips"
I would look around and see whats out there, i don't think this a compelling price. though i haven't compared specs or reviews so don't take my word for it
I personally own 1080 Ti and RoG PG348Q, and I feel like I should correct some misinformation from spreading to others.
And to refute some of the things you said:
1. 1080 ti with this monitor and going above 60fps wouldn't make any difference because this monitor is capped 60Hz.
2. Vega 64 when liquid cooled, outperforms gtx1080, so I don't quite understand your arbitrary 100 fps in games. MOBAs have extremely low system req, and you should be benchmarking triple A titles with a Vega 64. Of course, Nvidia tends to be better optimized for a lot of the games, but that's the price you pay for going red and paying less.
3. Freesync is AMD specific technology. I don't know why you have a freesync monitor with a 1080ti. Go get a g-sync monitor like mine if you have issues with tearing. Also, you're using 1440p as a unit of size. High resolution does not equate to larger size. For example, my PG348Q is 3440x1440 ultra wide, but it does not have the same pixel density as your 27 inch 4k monitor.
In conclusion, thank you for the contribution in expressing your opinion, but it seems like you're rooting a bit too much for the team green.
While I own a 1080ti, I am still excited for Vega's performance and value. And thanks to its performance, freesync monitor is becoming viable alternative to g-sync premium.
I would still avoid this monitor not for its resolution/21:9 aspect ratio/freesync, but because of its cap on 60Hz.
By the same logic, if you liquid cool 1080 it'll eat any Vega for breakfast lol.
You also need to pay a lot more for it.
I'm not following your logic at all lol
edit: LOL nevermind. AMD raised Vega 64's price to 600 USD. Definitely not worth it.
I actually have a Fury X and the curved LG 34UC88, so 3440x1440 with 75Hz (freesync only). I wanted Vega64 to be between 450-500 and I would have added an EK waterblock and backplate. Historically, AMD always improves performance through their drivers and there are still a few disabled features on Vega. It seems like the drivers are too underdeveloped at launch and the power usage isnt justified vs a 1080 or 1080Ti.
Which 1080Ti do you have? I may upgrade to one with an EK waterblock and wait for the Asus RoG PG35VQ. Ideally, the founders edition would have been my choice but those are out of stock everywhere.
If you can find a Vega at MSRP then it's a good deal. They(Vega) still don't come close to competing with the 1080ti though. I agree that G-sync monitors are expensive though.
