Sorry for being thick, but does the freesync thing mean it is also potentially 144Hz?
#2
i think the freesynch means u can play more fluidly at lower fps rate without as much tearing, depending on your hardware setup

Freesync doesn't mean 144Hz, it works on a range and that range can be pretty much anything. I could have a freesync 60Hz monitor and freesync would just apply from 30hz to 60. Manufacturer should know what the range is, or reviews.

Freesyncs for eliminating screen tear as CampGareth said within a range of the monitors Hz.

In this case, it's a slightly crap 48-75, meaning any drops in frames per second in game below 48-ish will result in juddery game play. You'd need a decent GPU to not drop into the lower range, and on modern demanding games (such as BF1, The Division etc) at ultra pre-sets you'd definitley drop down into the lower end of that with an AMD card at the mo.
If you're going 1440p ultra-wide and play at high/ultra settings (getting the most for your money you've just spent on an ultra-wide), you really want a GTX 1080, and sadly that means paying Nvidia G-Sync tax that normally bungs another £100 on your monitor, and due to the lack of AMD competition, considerably more for your GPU.

Does not mention "freesync" anywhere for this screen, this monitor has "Adaptive-Sync".
Yep just when your getting your head round the technology they throw confusion into the mix to keep you guessing

It does on the deal link, and on a few other websites. They never make stuff clear lol.

**** price

£530 for a QHD 34" ultrawide is an amazing price! They go for £500 used on Ebay! The people who voted this down are clearly clueless about monitors. Wish I'd have spotted this before, now it's gone up in price.
