Maybe. It would be unfortunate if true. Samsung does make their own panels and they make very good ones. It wouldn't surprise me if these were Samsung designed and manufactured panels and I really hope they are. AUO makes some fast panels that tick the right marketing boxes, but their actual real world quality is awful.
Except it's been shown that BLB results, mostly, from build quality (and not panel quality), and every major monitor reviewer has given excepcional scores to monitors with AUO panels, including TFTC, PCM, and Prad. Not to mention Samsung has been releasing PLS monitors with sub-90% sRGB coverage and some VA's with banding.

But, sure, let's keep saying AUO is crap.

Well yeah we need 120hz ones. They are getting faster for sure.

Once 21:9 aspect ratio monitors can at least give 120hz with gsync, they will walk all over 4K monitors.

a 4K varient 21:9 should also be announced this year. I am sure of it. Literally guys 21:9 aspect ratio is extremely immersive.

This basically sounds like a 1440p version of the Acer Predator Z35.

I am hoping these don't have same issues as the Predator Z35 displays. VA panel with quite a bit of ghosting issues, and motion blur with dark images. However, the 200Hz is great and ULMB specifically tends to get rid of any ghosting or blur if you can maintain 120fps.

We already have 21:9 that can do 200Hz. Unless you are specifically talking about 3440x1440 resolution only?

Talking about higher resolution ones.

OCN is moving away from 1080p.. 1440k will probably be the minimum enthusiast gaming monitor for OCN standards. Though there is a 120hz 1440p 21:9 monitor too as far as I know. But even 120hz is slow to some people rolleyes.gif

I have a 60hz 1080p monitor. I bought it to test 21:9 aspect ratio. I am surely going to upgrade it in summer.

I feel like monitors are definitely moving in the right direction. We have heard of some good things for the future like 5000$ 4K OLED 120hz monitor and many more.

Now we only need some good GPUs that are about two/three times as good as a 980 Ti/Fury X to make 4K worth it thumb.gif

Can't wait for DP 1.3. Hopefully manufacturers will not just push resolution with it, but also higher frequency.
Might even change my 21:9 if this one is promising and have enough connectors.

The only thing that worries me is the cost of monitors keep rising. Instead old models dropping in price, and new ones taking their spot. It seems like the price is just increasing. Are we on pace to have 21:9 'gaming' monitors be ~1500-1700 USD and accepted?

well I think you are probably comparing the "new" monitors to old ones like 1080p TN 60hz.

Problem is monitors like 1440p 144hz IPS g-sync are a niche product and not so many people buy them. ASUS can't sell them for like 300$.

I agree, not asking for $300 dollars. But with a new 1440p 144Hz IPS Adaptive sync, I would like to see be around ~1100. Then previous models drop a bit to maybe 700-800?

I am hoping not to see the X34 or Asus ROG 34" stay at ~1100 a year after the fact, then these 144Hz units jump to ~1600, and prices not move.

But with this market being so niche, and the people in the niche market willing to pay the premium, I guess I can't blame these companies wanting to make all the money they can.
