4k 22" would be ~200ppi. Upgrading from 92ppi to 109ppi.. or to 200ppi? Pretty easy question if you ask me. I'm one of those people that doesn't particularly care about monitor size though - if i sit 2 feet from the thing, why does it need to be more than 22"? I already have a game that i have to play in a window because my 24" monitor is too big as this viewing distance and it'd be a competitive disadvantage otherwise.

It sounds like you want a "retina" gaming experience, which is great!

I want high FPS and a bigger monitor; I'm a very competitive player and would be OK with 90-100 PPI. I want to be able to set the 32" monitor a little farther back than my 27" is now, but still have it fill my peripheral vision better than the 27". I also have no desire to use more than 1 monitor for gaming.

I would also consider any worthy 4K 32" display, even though this would mean SLi, which I've done before and did not really want to go back to. I would though, if the right 4K gaming display came along. thumb.gif

Well, while this monitor is a great step, there is still much to be done. 1440P is a bit on the low resolution side these days, as is 109 PPI. IPS is a good step in the right direction, but lack of blacks, contrast and IPS glow are still very real issues.

4K 120 Hz DP 1.3, 4:4:4 pulsed OLED curved ~32" is my holy grail.

1440p on the low end? Drinking the 4 and 5K coolaid much. Modern programs and OS won't even scale properly, unless you like looking at miniature interface. Maybe Windows 10 offers better scaling, but it's gonna be a while until 4 and 5K become the norm on gaming rigs. 110 pixel density isn't retina, but as far as your graphic card is concerned it is plenty. Also 4K content doesn't really exist yet besides a few YouTube videos maybe. Try watching a 1080p video on your 4K monitor...

I don't disagree that there are still issues with IPS and the tech is brand new and prone to bugs. But we have to stick with what makes sense and find a good balance between the hardware we have in our systems and the new monitor hardware being released. And do tell what you plan to use to power that type of high framerate 4K monitor. Since 4K is the "mainstream" resolution now it must be a common GPU or two. Ultra high resolution works on smaller screen devices like tablets and phones, but is unrealistic for desktop monitors at the moment....

Way too low to be true. It would be nice though.

I'll eat my toe lint if this is under $1000. I just can't see $700 happening.

It's definitely going to be under $1K. This is Acers jab at the rog swift, if I were to guess it would be $800 MSRP if they price it at that no-one in their right minds would want to buy the rog swift. I could see them undercutting Asus if they felt that there would be more competition around the time their monitor goes for sale or shortly after. This is pretty likely since BenQ announced their 1440p 144Hz monitor which is most importantly using freesync. Now although freesync is free it's likely BenQ will want to charge a premium for having one of the first freesync monitors on the market, that being said I'd expect them to price the XL2730T between $600-$750 depending on when they release it.

This year is going to be really dang good for monitors, since 1440p 144Hz is really starting to happen, and freesync came out. There is probably going to be an over saturation of good monitors. Great time to be a consumer thumb.gif
