$5k worth of VA smearing blacks and limited viewing angles? This is gonna be gud. A halo product for richest of the rich.

31.5" 16:9 is nice and the offers of these will hopefully increase in 4k. Till then enjoy $2.5k 27" haha.

The HP 65 inch BFGD display page has been removed from amazon.com I wonder why maybe they will put a price drop and relist it or understand since 4k oled 2019 tv's are here now there is no way it will sale for such an insane price.

Ya, no need for a special $1000 GSync module to do 4k, HDR, 120hz when you already have all that capability with a basic HDMI2.1. Well I guess not GSync, but the adaptive sync anyway which Nvidia is now supporting so same difference. Jensen's special module needed to be on sale in monitors a whole year ago for it to have been worth anything.

The module DOES do a better job and guarantees perfect functionality, at least judging from the threads in the monitor sub-forum. However, whether or not that's worth a whole $1000 is another question entirely.

For $5k, I simply have no interest in it if it's not OLED. Even with G-Sync and 144hz.

I've got G-Sync at my PC setup, but for the consoles and the living room setup, I've not found the need for >60Hz or G-Sync so far. Sure Freesync, G-Sync or VRR would be a nice addition for the Xbox and the living room gaming PC, but....yeah no.

Let's not forget how much dark content is going to be used on it if it's for gaming....so if the dimming zones are even remotely 'mediocre' the display is going to look terrible because of blooming.

Me too, but I would happily pay $5000 for a 4K120 G-sync OLED monitor.

However, competing with LG's C9 at that price would mean volume would be too low to bother making it.

BTW, Nvidia does not support any HDMI VRR at the moment. I very much hope this will change in the future but no guarente.

When they add HDMI2.1 to their GPUs they will add support for HDMI VRR for those cards only.

There is no reason to buy Gsync module monitors, all that module does is replace a module that's normally not made by Nvidia. Nvidia made a power hungry expensive module and forces all control over it to itself, you but it and want to make changes to firmware? Tough luck, no chance. Nvidia controls the whole thing, calibration of it and all, even fixing bugs which they never do. To top it all the features and speeds offered by Gsync modules are less and slower than the products it's trying to replace. And amount of panel makers signed up in this ecosystem lockdown with Nvidia is very small, as in AUO and some occasional LG panel, that's it.

Can't be bothered to look it up but I'm pretty sure I remember reading an article on TFT that said the V2 module, which is the one that would be on this monitor, enabled the monitors to have higher refresh rates than they would have without it, allowed the best VRR range among other things.

Is it worth the added expense? That's up to the end user (for the $1,000 or whatever absolutely not imo).

This is not true. The module does the frame duplication if the frame rate drops below the min refresh rate so the GPU driver doesn't have to know the specifics of that monitor. It also communicates back to the GPU when it does this so the GPU can wait for it to finish. This prevents issues like flickering or tearing if the driver stalls and similar.

I am hopeful HDMI 2.1 VRR will be great, and I own a C9 in part because of it, but saying the G-sync module does nothing extra is a lie.
