There is no guarantee that Nvidia and AMD next-gen cards will have DP 1.3 output, so don't hold your breath. Also, it does NOT have any kind of dynamic refresh rate technology (G-Sync or FreeSync).

The Dell OLED is coming out soon actually, March 31.

But yes, I would never spend that kind of money on a monitor without adaptive sync.

why? people buy pre-overclocked GPU's all the time. Same people who pay an extra $50 bucks for the EVGA "Superclocked" gpu's would buy the Asus over the Acer I would think. Probably the same people who buy the "extended warranty" on parts from a retailer.

That states it's a 60hz monitor with 100hz OC capability, didn't see out of the box 100hz

This place says it is 100hz out of the box

Switching to OSD, person says "I got 100hz, NO, screen flickers during gaming, I HAVE TO TURN IT DOWN TO 95hz" not everyone can get 100hz, there are a lot of people who cannot get it.

I read somewhere that the Dell (coming out in March 2016?) should have DP 1.3, I can't find the article now though. I can't say if they had confirmed it or if it was just a guess until I find it again though. It might very well use a double DP 1.2 port and drive each half of the screen with it.

 

Either way if Pascal and Polaris come out still with DP 1.2 then AMD and Nvidia are both big idiots, there's no reason to not add DP 1.3 at this point. Especially after all the recent talks about 4k @ 120 Hz.

He is wrong. AMD Polaris cards are confirmed to come with DP 1.3 and Pascal is most certainly going to come equipped the same.
Also, that screen (Dell OLED) is definitely coming in 2016, March exactly.

However. It is a $5000 non-gaming 10-bit color-accurate screen (high input lag) and in no way has anything to do with 21:9 screens of any kind.

DP 1.3 will easily support 4K 120Hz @ 10-bit color. DP 1.3 has a whopping 32.4Gbps bandwidth specification thumb.gif

NOT wrong again. You are basing your information off of speculation from an AMD press release. How many times does AMD have to lie for you to learn your lesson? Why do you think they are only worth $2/share on the stock market? That's right, lack of investor confidence. Caused by? All those lies about future products. So, let's just say for the sake of argument that both AMD and Nvidia hold up to their promises and give us DP 1.3 with their next-gen cards. Then that means all we will have to wait for is panels that can fully utilize the new specifcation. So far, just one panel has been announced that can do that and it's a Dell productivity monitor that really isn't meant for gaming. Also note, that the recommended length of DP cable to fully support DP 1.3 is less than 2 meters eh-smiley.gif

Except 10 bit 4k 120hz needs 35.83Gbps

AMD does not lie any more than Nvidia... actually, Nvidia lies a lot more so that is a bit of an irrelevant observation. What recent lie you have in mind anyway?
AMD's share price has little to do with "lies", but it has a lot to do with simple marketing strength and technology.
And yes, we will have DP 1.3 in both cards. Anything else is impossible.

Regarding cables, I'm using a 20 meters DP cable and I could be using a 40m one if I needed it. I will most certainly use a 20m DP 1.3 when it is usable. If you need it: http://www.dvigear.com/cables-dp-fo.html
