Oh I know; but the GTX 980 is poop as far as I'm concerned and the 290X is just a sidegrade; I'll wait for the big Maxwell chip and then get a pair of those in SLI. If I got this monitor I'd just turn down some details until then.

I moved my gaming PC down to my living room a year ago and that meant trading in my 1440p monitor for my 1080p TV, and 40" 1080p gaming is... well, let's just say you need to sit a long way away from the screen.

I mean SLI 780 GPU's are more than enough to render 4K, but VRAM lack will create stutter, which forced me to go from 780 Ti to 980, but it was really worth it. Hell, there are already several recent games that need 4GB VRAM just to run smoothly with max detail at good old 1080p. I recommend upgrading GPU's first and some better monitor may come out with HDMI 2.0 requirement anf specs better than this one. New monitors have been coming out weekly in the past few months.

Might as well look into HDTV's in 2015 as they use way better panels than monitors. Sony already makes 5000:1 contrast ratio TV's with 120Hz light-strobing, but I bet 2015 will bring even better specs. Be ready to spend a bit of coin on it though...

How do you think my SLI 970s would perform on games like BF4? On Fire Strike Extreme (the 1440p test), I score between 10200-10400, scoring about 5600-6000 on Fire Strike Ultra (for 4K UHD).

edit: also considering running a custom resolution of 3840x1600 with no scaling for games where I want a wide FOV for immersion, ala the 21:9 monitors. I figure that should give me a boost in performance as well. Like this:

this screen is epic. most people will find 4k at 40" the sweet spot to not require scaling and this means you lose screen real estate or blur your icons and text.

I've been salivating over the new soon-to-be released Dell and Samsung 21:9 1440p monitors for months, I even built a new rig to have enough fire power for them a couple weeks ago. But now, after seeing the picture from above on other forum showing how great it looks when you black bar the monitor and run it in a custom 21:9 resolution...I don't really see a point in the 21:9 1400p monitors anymore. Especially not when they are an estimated $400 more. With the custom aspect/resolution of 21:9, it is essentially a 37.8" ultrawide monitor, with a PPI equal to or a bit higher than that of a 34" 1440p.

I've got the same frame of mind as you do InHartWeTrust. I was tempted by the LG34UM95 but with this monitor coming out I no longer see the point in the 34 inch Super-Wides either.

Especially when taking into account the backlight bleeding issues that seem so prevalent on the LG.

I'm curious if anyone knows of any other 40 inch 4k monitor releases that are on the horizon?

That's what I'm looking forward to the most about CES next week, there's gotta be someone else looking to compete with Philips in this space.

Beautiful, thanks man! Are you running it with the custom resolution for 21:9 while gaming or just leaving it at 16:9?

and now you see the genius of both a VA screen and 4k at larger sizes.. black bars are black with VA + people play in low light so there isnt really an issue and the height of the image is easily enough if not more than the 34" too biggrin.gif

these screens are going to take off more than 21:9 i imagine if people start to get into custom 21:9 at 4k.

I'm really not understanding where this all stemmed from. As someone who just went from a 23.6" 1080p monitor a 28" 4k monitor and openly admits to having less then stellar vision I'm not having any issues with scaling or reading text. On websites that the text is wayy too small for some reason all you have to do is ctrl+Scroll up/down to zoom and it's no different except being a good deal sharper..

It was by far one of my biggest concerns going to 4k due to people posting this 'issue' all over the place but I'm more then used to and happy with it now using zero scaling in windows.
