But its not. People keep saying first 4k 144hz HDMI 2.1 Monitor.

Its only 120hz through HDMI 2.1 So why is everyone calling it first 144hz? Its just DP that allows for 144hz, with compression mind you. Why they limited it to 120hz when it has the bandwidth for 144hz considering its very unlikely to be a true 10bit panel and more like an 8bit+FRC panel. If its a true 10bit panel, then its barely just not achievable. Still unlikely.

Marketing my friend, as 144Hz sounds better on paper than 120hz ... And the fact that most people aren't that tech savy and hence don't know it's technically not 144Hz.

The article says "first HDMI 2.1 monitor", not "World's first 4K 144Hz HDMI 2.1". ASUS claims that this is the first HDMI 2.1 PC monitor to hit the market.

It's a vague claim, an it isn't that big of a deal. The 144Hz confusion comes thanks to early leaks and a lack of clarity from ASUS.

The title says "4k 144hz HDMI 2.1" too which could imply it is first when reading the article. So the matter of fact tone you got is misguided. I didn't say YOU said it specifically. I said people are saying that.

It's not a vague claim. Every website is reporting it as 144hz HDMI 2.1 in their titles and Asus CLEARLY states in their own page 120hz with 2.1.

Maybe providing accurate journalism isn't a big deal to you but it should be.

The monitor supports 144Hz refresh rates and it supports HDMI 2.1. Calling it 120Hz in a headline would be underselling the monitor's feature set.

In the article, it plainly states that supports 120Hz through HDMI 2.1 and 144Hz through DisplayPort 1.4 using Display Stream Compression (DSC). Where is the inaccuracy?

It is common practice to not include commas in headlines when listing specifications and any confusion should be cleared up in the text of the article. Headlines are not meant to tell you everything, as what would be the point of full articles otherwise.

All people do now is read headlines. It's all just click bait culture and the fact information is everywhere... different story though.

Calling it 120hz would be more accurate, it's not underselling anything if you are telling the truth about the monitor. The monitor is only capable of this, nothing more. Using DP it can do more, albeit DSC, but still not under selling it, you're talking about a feature here being 2.1, with 2.1 it can do 120hz. How is that underselling it? Once again I never brought up the article itself. You can keep bringing it up it doesn't change the inaccuracies some websites lead you to believe initially. Some websites did a good job making it clear.

You could easily change the title to *Monitor name* 4k 144hz the first HDMI 2.1 Monitor launches next month. this removes the need for a comma and avoids any long winded spec list. Sub heading with the quick description of specs and boom solved if you want an alternative. You can use commas it's not uncommon but not the norm. I can see why you wouldn't want to though.

Gives the user all the quick info they want and more information below for those interested. People leave websites very quickly and generally read a quarter of text at most on a page(average) so getting crucial accurate information across a 10 second window(at most) is necessary.

I'm not saying the article is wrong. I'm just annoyed how many at first kept implying it's 144hz HDMI 2.1 when it's not. Especially since HDMI 2.1 was specifically marketed as 4k 120hz when announced by the HDMI forum group and tech sites should know this. In addition I double checked the announcement pdf from the forum to make sure and sure enough it's there.

It does 4k144Hz, what do you mean? Show me a case, any case, where DSC degrades image quality.

I'd like for you to show me where it does indeed do 4k 144hz using HDMI 2.1

You've been told by another member who actually used it there was a difference in image quality. Nice bait though.
