LG 34UC88 75Hz+? 3440x1400P Ultrawide I got it testing it here's my thoughts!

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Well after getting sick to death of the goddamn AUOptronics crap panels frown.gif sigh want high refresh rate, Wanted to get an ultrawide but higher than 60hz refresh rate but without qc issues like acer x34 and upcoming PG348Q. Inc LG's newest panel in the 34UC88. Free sync 55-75Hz Panel.



So Here's the monitor ( It's a mess since I just set it up and doing testing.


So I saw 2 reviews of this panel it was the 34UC98 ( only diffrence that one is white with thunderbolt and this one is pure black without tb and $200 cheaper, one from Tech of tomorrow <- did a piss poor job btw says locked @ 60hz my ass smile.gif Will explain.



1.So I get the monitor and boot it up and im like, what? NO blb? yeah that's right LG has virtually eliminated all BLB it's easily 10000000000X Better than the Predator XB271HU I can't see any glow at all in the corners smile.gif


2. The curve of this panel is more than the older 34UC97 series.


3. So I get in windows (Using 980ti's) and look at the refresh rate says 60hz ok, no biggy right? Let me see if I can scroll down and see 75hz nope. Okay maybe I need a custom resolution? ok set to 75hz without touching pixel clock and any other settings it works? Okay try 85hz? Okay works but haha I get a stupid popup from LG saying "Out of range" anyway. So I Fiddle around with the monitors menu and find a Free sync option and I turn it on (using Nvidia GPU) and bam instant Native 75HZ comes up in the Nvidia control panel with 6-8-10bit color dept. This is where I am so far. Yeah this is a hap hazzard update but I'll continue to do tests on this monitor and at night take some more shots to see how good the BLB really is or is it just fooling my eyes atm.


Will update

Looks like a beauty. How much was it?

$999 on NewEgg, BuyDig. Mine will be here tomorrow. Even though it's FreeSync and I'm running 970s in SLI, it appears to be the best ultrawide option out there (next gen compared to Acer & Asus models out right now). I will switch to AMD if the next generation of cards is as good as it appears they will be for the benefit of FreeSync, but it's not needed with current games as I can hit 60+ fps on them.

Can you take a pic in a completely dark room?

I have been waiting for this display. Can't wait for it! But it's not listed anywhere in Germany. Is this a US or UK forum?
Fascinating findings. I'm curious to see if the 75Hz are really happening. Are you able to do tests to check for sippked frames?

Looks like a great display. The only (and a big) thing for me is 55Hz for lower freeSync range. That is bad, rly bad. For FreeSync to work from 0 to 75 FPS, this display would have to do 35 to 75Hz. My ASUS does 35-90, not sure was there a real hardware limit, or they just didn't care.

The Acer XR341CK FreeSync operation range is 30 - 75Hz. Also, for LFC to work the variable refresh rate ceiling must be at least 2.5x the refresh rate floor. So the lower bound would have to be 30Hz not 35Hz. I agree that 55 - 75Hz is a bit of a limited range.

Actually, they said LFC will work with 2x (which is logical... 30-60Hz for example... 29 would be 58, which is in the range), but they recommend 2.5x

Where did they mention that it will work with 2x? That conflicts with what they officially document.
