Awesome! Too bad Samsung will probably never use G-SYNC, so I'll have to settle for the AUO equivalent. The AUOs will be more curved though as they are confirmed to be 2000R while the Samsung looks like 3000R. But at least we get some decent options instead of these IPS monitors.

^ This. Plus I would rather not wait 6-9 months for a new monitor. Waiting 1 month isn't bad for this Asus but within 6-9 months something else will be announced and you will want to wait for that then something else. It's a vicious cycle.

http://wccftech.com/samsung-release-144hz-monitors-wide-resolution-year/

In TFTCentral's Acer Z35 review they point out that the VA panel of this monitor generally has very slow pixel response times which apparently can't keep up with the high refresh rate. This results in a lot of motion blur when the monitor is set to 120hz or more, while at 200hz the motion blur gets outright unacceptable. This definitely makes me think weather or not those Samsung VA panels would be any good for gaming, considering the inherent physical limitations of VA technology. Even the X34 has better response times than the Z35. And Acer has the audacity to market this monitor to competitive gamers because of its 200hz refresh rate while conveniently leaving out the fact that it has an avg. G2G pixel response of 17ms without overdrive and ~11ms with OD set to normal. If the Samsung's panels end up having such atrocious response times then I would have to say thanks but no thanks. Don't get your hopes up guys.

The Z35 response times are not simply slow, they're all over the place. Some of the transitions at 200 Hz rival TN response times. Only black to grey, especially dark grey, is slow.

Such inconsistencies are typical to AUO VA panels but not most other modern ones. Samsung doesn't really have these problems at all. Not all VA panels are created equal. The same for TN and IPS.

Also not all of us are competitive gamers. I game for immersion. Picture quality is more important to me than response times generally speaking, which is why I'm prioritizing VA over TN and IPS.

Well AU Optronics (ACER, awful QC) Gysnc or Samsung (normally good QC) however it will be Freesync

Also there is really not much difference between 100hz and 144hz

If you want better picture quality, then just wait for the 4K 95hz monitor, above 100hz is not possible on DP 1.3, I will get the ASUS PG348Q, then upgrade to a 5120x2160 OLED 21.9 100hz Gsync when it comes out.

Also high end Pascal is Q1 2017

Also it will need to have HDR on these Samsung or AU Optronics versions or it is not worth it

We probably won't see those DP 1.3 monitors out until the end of the year or early next (CES 2017). At that point, I'd rather wait until a more affordable OLED monitor comes out. Since Dell has proven its possible, I can't imagine a gaming focused OLED is more than two years away.

The problem is it will take at least another two years for the price to go down on OLED monitors (under £2000) then it will take another year for a 4K 21.9 OLED 100hz Gsync monitor

Also you need to know it is possible to get 100hz on DP 1.3, so we will need to wait for DP 1.4
post #280 of 1177
This isn't even interesting anymore, I've actually been considering 21:9, but i recently got a really good 2795qhd sample and i'm totally happy with sitting on this until a true upgrade comes along at the right price. These newly announced samsung VAs are gonna still be plagued by slow pixel transitions and the blur will be obvious even at 144hz. I don't like the poor black levels of IPS (although its far better than my old TN) or the glow, but at least they can provide a good experience at 144hz. We wont have great blacks and blur free usage until OLED goes more mainstream and becomes affordable. Till then the best we can hope for is a solid IPS type display with HDR and a high refresh rate with variable refresh tech.
