    360hz gaming monitors are here, but are they essential? If you're a professional e-sport player, it can make a difference, but it might not be something you should prioritize for casual gaming. On the other hand, if you really want it, the Acer XV252QF 390Hz gaming monitor will be something you should consider, especially since it's almost 33% cheaper than its competitors.

At $800 you could literally just buy a $400 1440p 100%sRGB 75hz monitor & then buy a separate high refresh rate monitor for your gaming needs. It's a bit ridiculous. Also that stand is ridiculous. I do agree it looks great but that footprint is unacceptable & anyone dumping this sorta money on a monitor is likely planning to out it on an arm anyway. Seems like a waste to me. I'll wait for the 2nd or 3rd generation of this thing. If they can get the price down to like $600-650 then maybe I'd consider it but at this price just makes more sense to get separate gaming & creative monitors & enjoying more screen real estate for the same price.

What a joke monitor technology is. Just 120 Hz alone, in strobing mode (AKA Blur Reduction Mode, Lightboost, ULMB ie. Ultra Low Motion Blur, etc.), is equivalent to something like 750 or 950 Hz or something...and that's just 120 Hz. Imagine strobing at even just 165 Hz (let alone 200, 240, etc.). The monitor industry is a joke with regards to the direction they take into developing & introducing different technologies & advancements. By now, we could easily have glasses-free 3D screens, OLED being fairly cheap and "mainstream", CRT-like levels of motion-blur-free screens (via strobing), etc.

HDMI 2.0 can deliver a maximum 240hz @1080p. Assuming you wanted to use the full 390hz the monitor is capable of, you'd be limited to the DP connection. It's always funny to me when a display boasts specs that only one of its inputs can actually handle and then gives you multiple inputs that can't actually deliver on the main selling point of the display, which is the 390hz refresh rate. This is pretty common with TVs because the odds of having multiple devices hooked up to one that can transmit that kind of data is slim for most use cases, but for a computer monitor there really isn't any legitimate excuse for there not to be at least 2 ports capable of delivering the full performance of the hardware, whether that's by including 2 DP 1.4 ports or upgrading the HDMI from 2.0 to 2.1. You could argue that most people probably don't have 2 different devices outputting DP 1.4 to a single monitor, but even if that's the case how many people who went out and spent $400 to get a 390hz refresh rate display are going to use 2 HDMI 2.0 ports that can't even take advantage of the 390hz?

I imagine it's easier to get a higher refreshrate on a smaller monitor. Just speculating but i can guess as to why it'd be harder to get bigger pixels to respond quickly enough for a very high refreshrate might be a challenge on the engineers. Inversely though, i think it's a shame there aren't any 24-25 inch 1440p 240hz displays. Wonder if its just a lack of market interest or the tech being harder to squeeze into that size.

@MilosCsrb for what purpose? movies do not run above even 30hz so it wouldn’t make sense for that and having a massive screen ruins the entire point of the monitor which is for competitive gaming/esports that can’t be done on large screens like that

You couldn't get past 360-ish range probably because sheer amount of overlays running in the background. Just close background apps, disable overlays from everything but Steam includinfg graphics card one (they don't make any difference with 144-ish frames but at 390, they will). For monitoring FPS, you guys should use in-engine overlays like CS's cl_showfps 1 or net_graph 1 instead of third party overlays at very high refresh rate applications imo.

I feel like 144Hz was the last refresh rate that was "necessary" for casual players, but 240Hz for anyone who plays comp games. I used a 144Hz monitor for about 4 years and over the last couple of months I've been living with a 280Hz monitor which has been a game changer yet again. It's a notable jump for competitive games, but most importantly for me everything just felt "smoother" which was the first time that I've used that word since owning a high refresh rate monitor. Going back to 60Hz makes me feel nauseous depending on what type of game I was playing, but playing around 140 or so feels doable although I constantly feel like I'm "missing information" compared to my higher refresh rate monitor.

Also I should've mentioned that I hit around 400+ fps avg at 1080p mixed settings with a 9900k and 3070ti (which does terrible with 1080p for some reason), so it's very much achievable.

Acer is trash. Both my laptop and screen were delivered with problems. The laptop had a faulty battery that dies within 30minutes idle. I reported it and they wanted to replace it but i didn't want to send my laptop to them and lose it for weeks. immediately since i needed it for work at the time. When the laptop also got temp issues i sent it in, but they refused to replace the battery because i didn't send it in before; tl;dr if you don't do exactly as Acer customer service says, they are allowed to scam you with faulty products unless you can prove it. Make recordings if any hardware related problem arises and put it on youtube so you have proof. And just buy another brand instead. I know i will.

Playing CSGO at all low is such an outdated concept if you've got half decent hardware. Best settings for CSGO are to put everything on the highest except shadows (medium), shaders (high), and MSAA (2x). Effect detail on high provides slightly lower performance, but you gain an advantage being able to more easily see through molotov smoke. Regarding MSAA, I actually get WORSE performance setting this to "None" with my RTX 2080.

Alright. 1st off: I hope a fast lot of ram is in this pc 2nd: you are in all likelihood, CPU bound. But a blazing fast kit of ram in, and you’ll probably hit the fps you want. Not a super great showcase of a 390Hz if you can’t actually hit it (but there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to)

Csgo is limited to 400fps if you dont increase it manually and limits it quite hard so 370 fps might be limited already. Also using bots on your own server dips the fps a whole lot. In competive play that computer should be able to keep fps over 400 for the most of the time, sometimes smokes will still dip the fps under 400.
