I was just playing The Witcher 3 last night on my 5K and was just thinking - even though 4K is a pretty big step down from 5K, the increase in FPS and refresh rate would be quite good. I am still going to get 4K Surround with these panels - but I hope the new Titan (Pascal) can handle that resolution much better than the OG Titan or Titan Black (both 4-Way SLI) did in 2014.
The only question then, is whether I should move my 5K monitor to the 2nd rig and sell the RoG Swift or sell the 5K? I think I'll keep the 5K - it's a gorgeous monitor and great for content creation.
No. Firstly, the panels you're referring to there are AUO panels. There is no confirmation of Samsung using them in any of their products - although they might, they have their own 100Hz SVA panels in development and are more likely to be using them than something from AUO. That website that said Samsung had '2 new models in development' (30" and 35") simply had their wires crossed and misinterpreted a TFT Central article which they quoted as a source.
Secondly, the UP3017Q has mDP 1.2. Not DP 1.3. Dell have explicitly confirmed this as per my article.
