The other option is an Acer XB270Hu which I own but wouldn't recommend, I had to RMA it 3 times to get a decent panel, Acer QA is fucking ballsack.

Word on the streets is the vendors are now selling the May batch of the XB270HU and those are far more free of flaws (say that three times fast). I got an April one with zero issues (still feel like I got lucky). The initial March ones were a huge panel lottery.

They print the month it was manufactured on the box.

Edit - and yes, the monitor is goddam amazing. Even the anti-glare coating is great.

Thanks for the info. This is why this is the only board/site i've ever really joined.

Was going for the Acer despite their track record with other hardware but, I may go for the Asus after reading this. A good Acer is better than the Asus option but, it seems to be a dice roll right now.

hah! we had a couple Acer XB270HU FreeSync displays die on us in our department this week, and i think we just got them in a week or two ago. one started dying slowly, with what appeared as corruption on top left corner but then it spread getting larger, and eventually the display wouldn't even turn on anymore. sent back both to Acer for RMA.

the Dual-Fiji 8GB card is going to rock your world! and i'm not just saying that because i work for them and have a small bias towards their ASICs, hehe.

it's going to be very good, and also work great with Win10/DX12 coming next month, trust me.

Bit of insider rumors from my old contacts in the industry for those interested, Samsung has been looking at scooping up AMD for quite some time now. It's mostly to boost their Exynos portfolio in the mobile arena but they would be shaving a lot of the CPU and GPU staff, who would go to Intel and NVIDIA mostly. The discrete GPU part would disappear completely as it currently exists. Samsung is also very interested in HBM (in the mobile space, they back Wide I/O and Wide I/O 2). They are also interested in gaming from a variety of viewpoints, including their TVs and mobile controllers. Samsung is simply waiting for the best time to pick them up; best value, fewest competitors, essentially.

This launch, as expected, has been pretty awful. On the one side they have re-brands that either have too much memory or, in the very least, cost too much and/or use too much power. The new HBM cards, while interesting, might have only 4GB. For those defending all of this, please consider: too much memory (8GB) on the one hand, then a focus on memory efficiency for the 4GB HBM. Those are contradictory moves on top of what amounts to rebrands that bring no lower prices. They're just phoning it in until they get bought out, and that's not even discussing the non-existent CPU side of the company. I'm not biased; I build computers for people regularly and my last 3 have a 280, a 290X, and a GTX 960 (but no AMD CPUs).

"NVIDIA does the same thing." Read the market, look at price histories. You see Intel refreshing the same chips at the same prices over and over again and they hold them there while out-selling the competition. NVIDIA has been doing the same thing for a while now. That speaks of market dominance and it's simply insurmountable in the current economy. AMD's graphics division is most valuable in its research department, their knowledge of memory and memory controllers is unparalleled and that's very attractive in the mobile and console spaces. They are pushing HBM for that reason as even if they fail they will be a good buyout prospect.

that would be interesting if Samsung bought us... i have a friend at Samsung also. haha!

shame on Valve for not showing up to E3! they've pretty much just become a publisher now.

where's HL3, or even Left 4 Dead 3?! and also HTC's SteamVR is nowhere to be seen.

none of the other popular game sites or E3 live streams are covering the PC press event, maybe because it's run by a competitor outlet? (PC Gamer magazine) and the host of the show also isn't that good.

though i must say that i'm super hyped for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided! looks really great!

It's not just Ubisoft, it's everyone these days, including the oh so coveted CD Projekt RED.

This kind of bullshit should have legal ramifications for being blatant false advertisement, but it's simply business as usual in our hobby..

even with downgrades, Witcher 3 may be one of the highest rated games this year.
