Pros: 1) Incredible picture, refresh rate and no ghosting.
2) Minimal back light bleed once the color was adjusted properly.
Best looking picture I've ever seen... however...
Cons: Had to RMA to ASUS only 6 weeks after purchase.
Each time I power up both the PC and monitor, the screen flickers on the desktop. Also, it will not wake up when "Deep Sleep Mode" is selected in the monitor settings.
Only happens using DisplayPort 1.2 - HDMI works fine.
Purchased a new VESA Certified DisplayPort 1.2 cable but still having the same issue. Called ASUS for troubleshooting. They were not able to fix it over the phone and agreed that it does appear to be an issue with the DisplayPort.
Other Thoughts: My monitor is only 6 weeks old. They better not send me a refurbished replacement.
I'll follow up with another review once I get my (hopefully new) replacement.
Pros: I don't know where to even begin. This card is by far the best EVGA has ever created. Playing DOOM at full, it only goes to a cool 57°C. It handles everything I throw at it. I am still using a 1080p monitor but that being said, I am maxing out the FPS at 200 (with vertical sync off) and 144 with it on (I have an ASUS 27" 144Hz monitor).
Cons: Absolutely NONE!
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this card to anyone looking to upgrade. Until this card came along, I had been using my EVGA GeForce GTX 690 4GB. This has served me very well for the last couple of years. I replaced it with this new EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0, 08G-P4-6286-KR 8GB for 3 primary reasons; 1st, I wanted to play DOOM on the Nightmare graphics level (at least 5GB video memory needed for this). 2nd, I wanted to upgrade to a new 1440 monitor and 3rd, I really would like to play the new DX12 games (Tomb Raider, etc...)
Take the plunge folks. You will not be sorry.
Pros: 1) No assembly required
2) Works right out of the box
3) Tested great on Windows8.1
4) Solid feel to it
Other Thoughts: Just make sure you have the desk space for it only because it lays flat and is not an upright unit like other make/models.
You won't be disappointed.
