Although the newer UC98 announced at CES operates at 75 Hz (at least with FreeSync). Early UM95/UC97s wouldn't overclock beyond 60 at all without skipping frames. Not sure about now. Also, most people have reported hitting 75-80 on the Dell version which released later.

It seems like the refresh rate tolerances for this panel have been improving over time... maybe it has reached a point where majority of units pass for 100 Hz. That's my guess, anyway.

Good review on the monitor against the PG279Q from Asus

These two pictures define very well what's the feeling of having such 21:9 monitor:





Just look how small the 279Q looks when comparing with the X34. Considering that the X34 (or any other 3440x1440 monitor) is running at 100hz+ with Gsync or Freesync, I don't see a single reason to buy a 4k or any 16:9 monitor over them. This must become a standart!

Until we get 120hz or 144hz, people will not buy them, as they think 100hz-144hz is a massive difference and the price needs to be lower

How much time before we see a 3440x1440@120hz or 144hz w/ Gsync/Freesync? I hope this doesn't take too much.

It is all depends on what type of games you are playing.. I play fast pace games like a lot of racing titles and some FPS so this monitor is a write-off for me. Hope the new upcoming Ultra Wide Screen from Asus is overclockable to 120hz? But I highly doubt it .I am tempting to go with the Predator Z35 and use Nvidia DSR in desktop and boost the 1080p resolution to 1440 in games. FPS over graphics FTW! Nah I really think that all the ultra wide monitor options sucks right now.. Just going to wait. I will stick with the good old XB270HU!
