The Asus ROG SWIFT PQ278Q is not native 144hz 1ms. Its an OD screen. Natively at 144hz it has a 6+ms response time.

Pretty well covered in this review.

Is G-Sync software dependent and improves performance on current monitors with the module installed?

I just had to pop in and say I was very impressed with the show this week. From Alan's thoughtful explanations, to Josh's knowledge/ponderings, to Ryan laying down truths and realities.

As a guy that epitomizes the type (but doesn't usually do it) that likes to pick on Ryan for his opinions/interpretations/understandings of many things, it was nice to hear things laid out that are realities (which in my opinion he explains/shows in tests/articles exceedingly well.) When the voltage issue came up, he passed the mic:

(paraphrased)
'because there is a minimum voltage (and hence clockspeed) a process tech is tailored before it becomes wasteful, right?'

Cue explanation by Josh/Allan on perhaps stuff some didn't know or often take into account, but I've always thought was an interesting part of chip design, and Ryan explaining what exactly Intel was doing; Alan laying down the engineering probabilities. Same goes for Josh and bringing up pad space for I/O in relation to shrinking geometries. That's another thing I think is an interesting thing to take into account in a lot of chip design/speculative discussion...and I would not have thought of it in this case. Well done, sir.

Sometimes I feel like Josh was cut from the same cloth as myself. We keep more informed than perhaps some, apply what we know, and like to speculate what that could mean for the future...but obviously are not engineers. It makes for great discussion though, I think...or sometimes just JoshTEKK diatribes I could see echoed in my own internal monologue/postings...which at least gives me some solace.

This episode gave me a lot of faith, and reminded me why I like ya'll beyond entertainment value. I think the addition of in-studio and larger participation of Allan has really helped the tone.

I guess what I'm saying is...after only 313 episodes, you guys may have settled in to a nice grove. (I kid).

Keep up the good work.

^ edit: groove. Perhaps also a grove, but probably not.

Thanks!  However, if you believe that we are cut from the same cloth... you ought to get that rash checked out ASAP.
