Frustratingly low-quality article from Tech Spot. No mention of what constitutes "low response times", no adaptive sync, and nothing with refresh rates above 60hz.

Anyone have a better recommendation or article? The Nvidia BFGDs were still in the realm of expensive fantasies last I checked.

Samsung Q6FN at 55" or bigger is adaptive sync 20-120Hz at 1080p or 48-60Hz at 4K. The latter might not be viable option till AMD releases something more capable than Vega 64.
