Not Confirmed. I'm just guessing. That 55" JOLED was a prototype. Are they ready for production? JOLED also showed 21.6" 1080p for gaming. 1080p240Hz OLED incoming?

The Nvidia BFGD is at 4999$ and it's DOA thanks to Dell. So they could sell it 2000 - 5000$. But if LG B9/C9 55 is @2500$ I don't see Dell going higher. But it carries the Alienware badge so it might be overpriced... Ok, I'm lost. I have no idea how much it will cost. <3000$ ?

I'm guessing 3499. They were talking about the price premium of the BFGD, so it's going to be cheaper than that. LG's stuff will likely not have DP 1.4, and slap on the RGB and Alienware tax and you're in the 3s. The fact that they have a pretty polished product on display at CES leads me to believe that we'll actually get a launch in 2H without delays. They'll probably ramp up shortly to have good stock by 2H.

If this is releasing later this year it's almost certainly using an LG panel. JOLED is only running a pilot line right now, which will probably just be used for the 21.6" size. Their full production line won't be up until next year.

Alienware is dell. So most likely, this is using a LG panel anyway.

Yeah like a really bad song on the radio that the station keeps repeating and repeating.
In time you find yourself tapping your foot and singing along.
It's like being programed.

So it's an LG tv with displayport 1.4? Works for me. That explains the 55in panel size, which is honestly too big even for a large desk with 30-40 inches of depth, but hey if this is the closest I get to a 43in I'll take it.

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

Ya it can only be an LG panel. JOLED doesn't have a 55" FAB line and aren't planning to anytime soon. JOLED will focus on 32" and smaller OLED.

CPU: 9900K 5.4 GHz, liquid cooled
MB: ASUS Maximus XI Gene
RAM: G.Skill 16GB 4600 MHz

Lol, no kidding! He says it has "Bad pixel density" as if you can reasonably go any higher than 4K! I would personally be just fine plopping a 55" 4K monitor down on my desk that I sit just a couple feet away from. Would look absolutely fine...
