Not as impressive when you realize you can't even take full advantage of this monitor without compression. You'll still need DSC for HDMI 2.1 or run at 4:2:2. Otherwise it's insane non compression bandwidth requires 60.62 Gbit/s!


This should have waited for DP 2.0, but we won't see that until next year at the earliest.

This would be my dream monitor -

-34" ultrawide curved
-3440x1440
-240Hz
-HDR1000+
-2000+ dimming zones
-G-Sync/Freesync
-Nice professional design, No gamery edgy crap.

And no need for display compression.

dsc only needed for full 240hz , 144 will work fine @4:4:4

you can complain that dsc is needed or you can simply set the refresh to 144 or 165 hz as with over 7 million pixels no modern title is coming close to getting 240 fps, then you can enjoy full chroma 4:4:4, 10 bit at 144 hz, i dont see how that is a bad thing

Well they are releasing a product with marketing checkboxes just to say "Look what we have" but in doing so the product is compromised.

This monitor should be DP 2.0, Then DSC, Which does degrade image quality, Wouldn't be needed, If I'm paying, Likely £2000 for a monitor of this calibre, I don't want to have to sacrifice image quality to use the panels full potential.

Monitors have had huge compromises since forever and will continue to have huge compromises. I say, buy the monitor that best monitor suits your needs whenever you need one. Critics of all kinds will have all kinds of reasons to not buy a monitor, and that's totally OK. But monitors manufacturers can't wait for the perfect technology to arrive that allows for zero compromise, because that won't ever happen. They have to release a product. Some hate VA for the ghosting and curved screen. Some will only buy VA because of the contrast and curved screen. It's definitely a case of 'pick your poison' and be grateful for what you can get because it's all you're gonna get.

Drop the attitude, There's no need for it.

No I do not "feel" entitled to it, The monitor is just a marketing stunt, To get the full resolution and refresh rate you have to use DSC, That's not good, It would've been better if they had either waited for DP 2.0 or not bothered with the extremely high refresh rate as to use it you have to compromise on image quality, Doing the latter would've also lowered the price.

Not a single one of you could tell the difference of DSC in a blind test. (well that phrase doesnt really work in this context)

You can keep saying this yet Warchild has already told you he could tell the difference since he actually tried it. With that said, why cant we feel like we dont want DSC and have you always say the same thing over and over? Why would I a person who say was spending thousands of dollars on a top end monitor, want ANY sacrifices whether they are valid to you or not? I don't think there should be any compression for the amount top end monitors charge. I would feel cheated. If it had DP 2.0 then I wouldn't care and if using HDMI 2.1 you would be aware it had to have compression, but then thats up to me if I deem 1 DP 2.0 port worth it(which I would), but see this gives options rather than a cut and dry must use compression.
