I have had the Asus 4k monitor for a bit now sorry for taking a bit to post this mini review... I will try to put some photos up and I hope a Video soon.
The Monitor came packed very well and the stank was easy to install setup ect.
Ok that was the easy stuff.....Now I had a 2x Nvidia Titan Setup to run it. When I first pluged it in it showed post started up no problems.
However it was in 30Hz 3940 X 2160 not 60 Hz
So I went to my properties switched to MST mode and after the Monitor Rebooted I had 4k 60Hz goodness !!!
4k Videos looked really really good nice colors good blacks (not super black but good) and the detail was astounding If you were not a gamer and only wanted this for Videos and Graphics
you are set with this monitor...Now it gets interesting.......
I loaded up Battlefield 4 and 3 and had 40 FPS at max with very high settings.
Next I loaded up Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 It came up as a very small window in center of screen until I set up the Rez and changed settings.
Like battle field I had 52 FPS High Quality setting ect.
I like older games also so I brought up Call Of Duty 2 Black Screen.........................Then after about a 60 to 90 seconds I had that small screen again went to change Rez and
Had a game crash....Any way I tried to set it up in game no dice crash to desktop...
I had to go into my Config Sys to set the Rez to 3840 X 2160 once I did that and set my offset to -1 I was in and all tho the game took 90 seconds to launch it works very good with Steady 60 FPS.....
If your into WOW and Diablo 3 and games like that this 4k SHINES unreal detail and the frame rates are a steady 60 FPS I can't tell you how good they looked !!!!
After I had this working I shut down my PC came back later and turned PC on from a cold boot....No Post no nothing stuck in bios mode 23 on my PC.
I hit restart and still no post but after a bit I was welcomed to the Start Screen.
I tested this a few times on cold boot no dice... I had to ALWAYS hit restart to get computer up and running. I called ASUS the person I talked to had no clue so I tried EVGA.
They said they were aware of the problem and sent me a new V Bios for my Titans once I loaded it I had a Post screen while starting on left side of screen only
but at least it took care of cold start and you can see the bios and work with it.
I started with Windows 8 pro 64bit. However I wanted to see if Windows 8.1 would make anything better ....BIG MISTAKE ! I had Zero luck in getting ANY older game to run on 8.1
Also the new games had strange problems like the screen going black in Battlefield 4 in mid play no less so it was time to get rid of 8.1 for now and reinstall Windows 8
I headed to local Microcenter and I picked up another Titan so I would have 3 way SLi and reinstalled Windows 8 fresh.
Again everything worked as before Frame rates went up to 58 to 60 FPS in most games but again could still go to low 30 FPS with heavy action games like Crysis 3
Overall the Asus 4k Monitor is good...But for now its not ready for the average consumer... If your a power user by all means grab one BUT be ready to go into your Cofing folders and all other kinds of settings to HOPEFULLY get things right and running
Also input lag is high not in the 60 or anything more like 2 or 28 but FPS are not where you need them to be Stick to the Asus 144 Hz Gaming Monitor for high Frags !!
Ok I will try to get some Pictures and a nice video up of it in action My note 3 is supposed to shoot video in 4k we shall see....
Hope I did not boar any of you guys
