You can be pretty sure that there is no ultrawide on the market with great uniformity, and also blank screen doesn't matter, it is not possible to notice it in normal usage, and also it is visible basically only on white and gray. Getting bothered by something like this is just intentional looking for issues that have no impact on actual usage. Although it will vary a bit from unit to unit, it is very hard to get it on screenshot properly, same as bleed, you just need to know for yourself.

DP 1.2 enables DisplayPort 1.2 features that required for FreeSync to work properly. It gets enabled automatically when you enable FreeSync and you cannot turn it off while using FreeSync. It doesn't seem to have any impact on usage without FreeSync, but leave it on.

You will be able to choose 75 Hz refresh rate that will be skipping frames and feel unsmooth and out of sync, so leave it alone, or check for frame skipping and then leave it alone smile.gif

I don't think there is a DAS mode but there is a DFC setting. Also, I would say your monitor has somewhat unacceptable backlight bleed. I guess if it doesn't bother you then don't worry about it, but if it does I would definitely try to replace that one.

It's definitely not the fastest IPS panel out on the market and it got some input lag. It's not meant for super competitive gaming but the monitor definitely improves when your running in freesync mode with an AMD card. You can get 75HZ working with a Nvidia card but it requires an AMD card as a second card and isn't very user-friendly. I'm likely upgrading to Vega unless Nvidia gets off their ass and supports freesync. The 75Hz alone is worth changing cards.

I got it. If you set the ratio to wide, DAS will be ON automatically

Nice, I didn't know that. Input lag is 10 ms with DAS and 24-25 ms without it, so thats nice free improvement to something that wasn't perceptible anyways smile.gif

But still no way to live with 72-75hz native refresh rate without frameskip

I received the 34UM88-P a few days ago (the version with Thunderbolt ports). I was worried that it may have serious bleeding issues, but it's all fine. I got it mainly for work and I'm happy with the image quality switching from Apple Cinema Display LED (24"). One thing to note is that on the ultrawide display, maybe because of how large it is, IPS glow is quite pronounced. I can I see it in any part of the screen depending on the angle I'm looking at it. It's certainly visible in dark scenes when watching 21:9 content on YouTube. Not much of a problem in other ways.

Another important detail not mentioned enough is that the high resolution makes everything smaller on the screen when switching from 24" 1920x1200px display. I had to bump font size in a couple of applications to make reading comfortable - I wear glasses and my sight is pretty bad for that matter.

Thats obvious for any display in the world, increase in resolution makes things smaller. Thats why "4K support" is discussed for games sometimes, even though it is also 16:9 just like 1080p and 1440p, because older games will get very tiny HUD and fonts at 4K and you probably won't have an option to scale it. I can already name a few that are on the edge at 1440p and wouldn't be playable at 4K.

I just want to point out that I am using the 34uc88 @80hz / freesync enable with a gtx1070 and I get no frame skipping.
