    Default Rift and G-Sync or ULMB on Asus ROG Swift PG278Q monitor

    I've ordered a new Asus ROG Swift PG278Q monitor with G-Sync to marry up to my 2 water cooled EVGA GTX 780 Classified cards and I was wondering if Trion has done anything (or if anything needs to be done) to get either G-Sync or ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur) to enhance the Rift experience. Some games apparently work better under G-Sync and some under UMLB and I was wondering if anyone with the Asus ROG Swift have tried Rift and determined which is the best mode to play Rift in?

    I have the same monitor. G-Sync doesn't seem to work properly (even though the LED turns red), since the game's refresh rate gets set back to 60 Hz (same counts for all Glyph games - but at least Defiance has an option to set it back to 120 Hz).

    I have sent a feedback report about this, since I reckon more and more people will get a 60Hz+ monitor in the coming months/years...


    I have the impression that sometimes the game does run with a 120 Hz refresh rate depending on which background programme is running, but I haven't been able to reproduce it consistently. It seems very random.

    A proper solution would of course be an option in the graphics settings to set the desired refresh rate...

    Good to know, thanks for the input.

    I was hoping Rift would better support this (as opposed to Occulus Rift) but either way, once the Swift comes back in stock, I'll be buying one of my other games.

    This monitor is just too sweet to pass up, even for $800.
