I voted as well, but with the lack of updates I might just buy one from dcsamsungmall on ebay for $348.99.... I just want to get 90Hz or so personally.

There was an update though. By the best of my knowledge they are being aimed at for next month.

Also, unless I'm mistaken, if you buy one now you're likely to get a non-overclockable one, meaning you'll be stuck at 60hz instead of the 90 you wanted.

I am willing to wait a month, I still need to sell my 6990 and get a gtx 680.

Just a question - Assuming they get the go ahead with production, how do we order? Will they create a website or perhaps email account for orders? Will members of this thread only be able to access the deal? Will the fact that I live in Australia be a problem?

Other than those niggling details, I am quite excited about these models.

You could always order now and resell it later. I know a couple people that are interested in one of these, but don't want to order it themselves.


If they saw one in person though, they would pay $500 easy.

They would like to have seen an even bigger poll, but I told that I think this is the best we can show at OCN alone. And they had to remember OCN is only a small group of customers! With 360 yes votes, I see the first 500 monitors easily sold, and the rest should follow quickly!

Now they are preparing reports, that they have to present to Witech (the manufacture of Yamakasi catleap). So hopefully in the next days, we will have our final answer!

For some reason I thought this was earlier than March 30..and was also hoping "next days" meant less than 16. But still, I'm very anxiously waiting to make sure I get a decent one. Its why I'm following this thread.

I thought this too, and my mother thought of buying and reselling a few too, but I just don't know enough friends with money appearently. Though I might just jump the gun and try finding someone anyway if the one get doesn't end up getting to 90Hz

One user is asking a valid question about picture quality. I'm an artist and a gamer and I totally get the need for a monitor that can do BOTH jobs, not just one or the other. The next user posted a potentially valid claim that (presumably with the help of some replacement PCBs) that the current dell could be made fast to have the best of both worlds.
Is there some problem I'm missing?
As an aside, has anyone actually attempted to mod a non-catleap monitor with these circuit boards? As much as I'd like one of these, the utter lack of warranty/support and the A- panels are a bit of a turn-off.
Also the glossy screen would be a pita in my current house (there is NO way to avoid glare during day time here short of wearing polarized glasses and screwing over my image quality.

Ken1649 has argued constantly that the DVI specs won't allow 120HZ @ 2560x1440 and that its just impossible, even though it works. He sarcastically called HyperMatrix and others who have overclocked "experts." He (and anyone following the 2B models) knows that there are no other PCBs proven to do this and he didn't suggest a PCB swap (not that it would work without a lot of mods to the housing most likely), thus condescending. If he was being serious, then I'm sorry I misinterpreted it, but that's what it came off as.

Anyways, you can see in my last post I actually answered the last person's question. It should be relatively close. However, the U2711 uses the LM270WQ2 panel (on my computer now, so I can actually check smile.gif ) and this uses the WQ1 panel. The main differences are the color coverage and the backlight. U2711's panel is CCFL and this is LED. Here is the full spec list: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/monitor_panel_parts.htm

I don't think anyone has tried to cross-swap the PCBs as they may have different sizes/screw holes/etc. If we can compile all the different models (Catleap, Diva, Achieva, Crossover, etc) with their casings off to see the PCB layout/location, that would help decide how it would work (need exact measurements as well).


I actually believed that it can actually work after 4 users said I was incorrect, including yourself and the other user who came to support you in the 7970 owners thread but never replied my questions. It's simple to believe because why would anyone posted something in the open forums, if they don't know for the facts that it can actually refresh @100Hz or 120Hz or 133Hz @2560x1440.

 

I was searching for the right panels that you guys talked about. I would like to think I can do it too by following the steps how to do it. After seeing all this, guess my safe bet is to wait for the 'Certified 120Hz 2560x1440'. No reason to go from 1600 to 1440 if it can not do 100~133Hz on AMD or Nvidia cards for gaming.

 

Unless, someone would be kind enough to explain how to get around the software and hardware built based on the applied DVI standard. 

 

 

60Hz vs 120Hz Explained

 [Note though, video card solutions that are recommended for 60Hz 2560x1600, will not perform as well at 1920x1080 @120hz due to the amount of information that needs to be processed. In other words, it’s more taxing on a GPU to display 1920x1080 @120hz than 2560x1600 at 60hz. You will need one heck of a powerful GPU solution to see all the benefits of 1920x1080 @120hz. Beyond this resolution, at this high a refresh rate, dual link DVI will no longer have enough bandwidth to broadcast a signal to a monitor. As this point we'll have to move to a more advanced cable method like Display port (seen on a lot of the new HD 5xxx series cards).]

From what I can tell, it's seriously unlikely to secure a 100+hz overclockable monitor right now - besides paying for a monitor and hoping it's the right model (gamble factor).

Is this correct?

Correct. Most of the 2B monitors were bought in feburary. Although, some people have been lucky after.

@Ken.



The bandwidth "bottleneck" some are referring to on DVI is being misunderstood. They are taking the limit of the single link DVI and doubling it, and saying that a Dual-link DVI does not have the bandwidth to carry a 1440p @ 120hz single. This is simply not true. There is no such limit for DL-DVI.


Obviously there is *some* limit to what a DL-DVI can carry, but you don't find it by simply multiplying the single link limit.


TL;DR - Yes, a DL- DVI cable can cary 1440p @120 hz.



On the subject of modding a Dell, not likely. Even if you could, there would still be all the crap dell puts into their panel, that would result in the typical input lag people talk about with IPS monitors.


Part of the reason these are so great is the lack of multiple inputs and other "extras".
