    4K also means sending your GPUs into a crazy load

    Well, I jumped in the water. Ordered and received mine yesterday. Manu'ftd in Sept 2014.

    See as this is the 2nd or 3rd Batch, I am hoping it won't have the same problems as some on these forums have been reporting.
    Don't have a GPU with Displayport atm so I will only be able to start testing next week. Will report back in this or another thread

    So I've been using it for a week now, and it has all the problems the other people are complaining about (green screen on inversion test, inversion patterns on movement)

    However, it almost goes away when I turn OD to off!

    Just remember that this monitor isn't like any other monitor in the market.

    Since your GPU does the scaling to draw the image to the monitor and the G-sync replaces the Monitor Scaler when its scaling of things to draw to the panel.

    Instead of the old method of how the monitor draw at a fixed rate on its own scaler, so I'm sure in no doubt that if you purchase another G-Sync Monitor (different brand) I'm sure it be the same result.

    This can be also relate to driver or its just how it operate. If there was another Swift that has no G-Sync then surely the test should past (or at least close) on that LCD Test.

    But if the monitor does something unsual or flicker on normal mode or showing odd lines or vertical lines during normal use, then surely you have to RMA it.

    I have experience one little problem and I don't know if its related on how Display port works but when I turn off my monitor when I'm not using it, I heard a disconnection sound and reconnection sound and when I turned on the monitor my icons are spaced out compared to how it was before.

    So I had to re align them up again. I don't know if its because of how display port works when your not using it of how it goes to power saving mode or something, but I'm keeping an eye out for it, to see what is the cause of it.
