By what standard is HDR determined here? Is this panel 10-bit and capable of 1000nit brightness, or are monitors going the same way as TV's with any and every manufacturer selling HDR monitors which they aren't truly capable of achieving the standard for it?

I'd also like to know what the connectivity options are... it must be DP 1.4, or perhaps 2.0?

Presumably this is VA? It looks like IPS is being sidelined for now. That said, I'm hoping for more Freesync 2 news.

Yeah, expect 2 things from this: Insanely priced (more than the current ones at over £1000) and major quality issues.

Nah, ROG products have failed in my eyes badly. Insanely overpriced as well.

I don't get the point of this display. Yes all those spec sound epic on the box, but... What hardware can run new AAA games on 3440x1440 and 200Hz??? I don't think they will sell many of these. And they will probably suffer as PG279Q did on launch.

Edit: They should be focused on putting more 2560x1440 displays on the market.

The performance demand difference between 3440x1440 and 2560x1440 isn't that great. If you can run the latter well, you can run the former. And the added immersion is well worth that small hit you take. I have an X34 currently and could never go back to 16:9. Whenever I sit in front of a 16:9 screen now I feel like something is missing. I'm all for more monitors like this... it's 4K which needs to take a back seat, as that is a MASSIVE leap in terms of GPU demand.

But you are right to say that there isn't a GPU solution (even SLI) that is going to push AAA games at 200FPS at this res, but the same is true @ 2560x1440. The more important thing here is that they put out a 'TRUE' HDR panel, i.e 10-bit, 1000 nits etc., but I fear that may be asking to much and it will likely be pseudo-HDR at an insane price.

When 120Hz 1080p monitors became available, not many systems could run them at 120 FPS. It doesn't mean they weren't in demand. A Monitor is one aspect of your system that can be considered future proof if you choose wisely. This would be a very future proof monitor. A 1080Ti won't be able to run it 200Hz, but the 2080Ti would, at least in current well optimised games like Battlefield 1, Overwatch, Dark Souls III, GTA V.

I can see this being popular amongst those who can afford it.

Monitors tend not to BS about specs like TV manufacturers so I'd expect 1000 nits min, but you never know without it stating.

According to link below, it is in fact 1000 nits. Now lube up and bend over for the price lol!
