It isn't that expensive. PG35VQ and Predator X35 are twice as much. I want it regardless.

5120x1440 @240Hz requires over 50Gbps of bandwidth, which DP 1.4 cannot provide. Bogus marketing speech, it will limit either the resolution or the refresh. And this is coming from the owner of CRG9, which is a previous model. Right now it won't do native resolution in 4:4:4 chroma HDR, due to bandwidth limitations, let alone 240Hz.

Who the hell sits a meter away from there screen I try to bring my face as close as possible, Also this would not cover your peripheral vision as they claim. I am currently sitting in front of a CRG9 and your nose needs to be 3 inches away from the screen in order to cover your peripheral vision. I would also prefer mini leds with 100's- 1000s of zones instead of 240hz 5120x1440 is nearly as difficult to push as 4k.

Surely this will just use DSC instead?

Yeah I got one too you need to set the panel to 100hz in order to get 10bit I rarely set mine above 100hz since its difficult to push above that frame rate anyhow. Maybe they are using HDMI 2.1? 2.1 can push 48Gbsps



I was able to overclock mine to 148hz at 1440p or 152hz at 1080p


Have you tried overclocking yours?


also... 1000r? That seems retarded I don't know about you but with our 1800r monitors you get some colour shifting on the sides imagine how awful it will be at 1000r?


What were they thinking?!

Could be, but then again the marketing shenanigans do not mention DSC. If so it would mean compression, therefore further degradation of picture quality, mainly colour.



And like mentioned by @grassman, the increased curvature will most likely worsen it even more.

It's HDMI 2.0, which is even stranger. Yeah I know, but I refuse to run it at 100Hz after transitioning from 144Hz. Don't get me wrong, I love the display, I would not trade it for anything else that is below it. I hope we will see taller aspect ratios in the future. I would love to see 32:10 MicroLED/OLED curved, that's my dream screen until holo-screens become viable.

Must resist... Well I will at least as long as I've got a 2060, but that has pretty much no compromises. I wouldn't mind gaming with compressed image, and desktop/work might as well be at lower hertz.

Pretty much anyone using a dedicated sim setup for racing or flight sims. 49" has really taken off for those that don't want the hassle of triples or aren't suited to VR.
