Just checked: PG27 production starts now in May, so mid/late May/early June for first markets depending on how it's being shipped.

Not sure X series yet. It's often mostly waiting for mass-production of panel availability and/or mass production to meet a certain quality standard.

For the record: Monitors don't wait for graphics cards. They just launch on their own schedule.*





My original post:

https://www.inet.se/produkt/2210502/acer-27-predator-x27-4k-144hz-hdr-g-sync-quantum-dot

On this retailer site, the Acer Predator X27 is listed as to be shipped April 5th. Because ASUS usually release their version a little earlier than Acer/the other manufacturers, it is likely that the PG27UQ will be released (assuming that shipping date is correct) during March, this would also still stick to the Q1 2018 release window.


For reference, see the posts in this thread:

If the PG35VQ is at 1500$, I will get it without thinking twice for the following reasons:

I am interested in PG35VQ much more than the PG27UQ because: PG27UQ has a max 98hz for full image quality in HDR (10bit RGB 444) due to 2160p resolution and DP1.4 bandwidth limitation. PG35VQ is 1440p (ultra wide), I am sure we will have 144hz at least without compromises: RGB 444 10bit HDR. I prefer 1440p over 2160p due to higher frame rate in game (less demanding), even 2080Ti is not enough for latest AAA game at 2160p (even 60fps is not achievable), e.g. Assassin creed ODYSSEY, refer to the YouTube benchmark. VA works much better than IPS with HDR and FALD, due to much better native contrast ratio, the halo effect on the PG27UQ is very bad due to the very low native contrast ratio of IPS.
The mega contrast of VA that can achieve approx. near to 0.05cd/m2 of black level at SDR brightness (that is required by VESA HDR specification) even without FALD , this means we will have ultra low to no halo effects.
35 inch is amazing. 2160p is approx. 1.7 times more demanding than 1440p (ultra wide). And if you need to play at medium settings at 2160p, what you will gain in pixel density, you will lost it with graphics quality, 2160p was never a good choice for gaming, when you play at 100 fps and above, you can never go back to 50-60 fps. Smoothness is always a king.

Response time of the VA panel in PG35VQ is much better than any other VA panel in the market, it is a new VA panel model from AUO, because they mentioned 4ms GTG response time instead of all other VA panel in the market where it is mentioned a response time of 5m GTG.
Already watched the video for the X35 ghosting at 200hz on Youtube (UFO test), this is normal at such ultra high frequency, and if this panel is able to go to 200hz, means it is a new technology and at 120-144hz, we will have much lower ghosting than any other IPS, btw also IPS have ghosting, I have now the XB271HU and before the XG2703-GS, and both have ghosting at 144hz.


there is already a 1440p freesync 2 3440x1440 @ 144hz 10bit panel out by LG now for $1399

I've decided to go ahead and get a 49 inch wasabi mango 4k 120hz panel it can run 1080p @ 240hz 1440p @ 144+ hz

this is the proof to what i said according to tft, no need for chroma subsampling at 144hz

I'd personally love a display this size for gaming with gsync features as I have used 5k before this resolution would be amazing if it had 100hz 5120x1440 I really wanted to get into ultrawide but feel 34 inch is too small I still might buy this display for gaming but it would be weird going back to 60hz

according to a user who owns this panel the 4k korean 43 inch and 49 inch variants can be overclocked at 1080p to 296hz and 1440p 240hz resolutions something we can't currently do on the pg27uq and acer x27

Can we have an idea from a ROG moderator when will the firmware update of the PG27UQ be available to update the monitor ourselves?

Thanks

Update it appears the 32' 4k 144hz monitors are on hold for now but there are plans for a 43 inch BFGD and a 65 inch that are in development so we should see those in Q1 2019.

There are also plans for AUO to develop 240hz 1440p TN based panels this info is directly from TFT central

Ultrawide monitors PG35VQ , Acer Predator X35 these monitors are currently in mass production as of Q3 2018 so we should see these in Q1 2019 so hold on to that Christmas money.

Maybe you misunderstood, we waiting for the firmware update to fix the 144Hz blackrush problem. Also i think the always on fan problem is on a firmware level.

Oh I see yeah I understand I know how the colors get crush anytime you set the overclock refresh rate on @ 144hz even at 144hz 1080p and 1440p according to asus they posted it will be released this year so lets hope it won't be delayed and actually does come out this year would be a nice christmas gift 🙂

Source optional firmware coming this year from Asus
https://www.asus.com/us/support/FAQ/1036750


Just talked to an asus rep in chat there will be a tool coming and if your model has a second digit with a 6 in it you can get a refreshed firmware so if you want to have the firmware update done now send in your panel to Asus or wait for the download to become active. He just leaves chat without even saying goodbye lol

I wouldnt care about it that much to send it back... shipping risk, waiting, maybe cost, etc.. its just not that big of a deal...120Hz vs 144Hz... ehhh.... not worth the mentioned risks for me 😄 much better to just wait especially since they have to release it. They dont have much of a choice, a mass recall because misrepresentation of a product would hurt them really much.

Yeah that is the one thing I hate about it I wish they had on site upgrade like with LG my oled had to be repaired they came to my house and installed the new panel right in front of me.
