Windows 10: 2017 Hardware Thread

  1.    1 Day Ago #1081

    My monitor driver was switched recently to "Zowie". As I was about to blame Windows Updates I went over to the BenQ website and sure enough the driver for my monitor had been updated to a Zowie driver. Guess I'm Zowie too.

    Worf, you are moving quickly on the monitor selection which I understand as you want it for "TI Time". I know nothing about the other monitors mentioned but will just say in your shoes I would go with what I know and you know because you have one as well. BenQ is typically a safe choice. Their reputation is quality with a focus on gamers and related performance.

    Thanks for your reply. I am watching reviews at the moment. The zowie is as it stands at the moment the choice I'll go for.

    The ones I've been looking at are made by Asus ....and most of them are not cheap.

    Yes, Worf, do your homework. BTW, that model you are looking at is also free sync, right, but of course the monitor can still be used with Nvidia.

    Now that's pretty brutal. They are basically saying why is there a 144HZ 1440P freesync monitor when a single AMD GPU can't deliver those frame rates at 1440P.
