I've been putting away 250USD every month for this monitor, but I'm still weary of spending 2000USD on a monitor. All these delays are allowing me to save even more money so that when this monitor finally comes out, it won't be so hard to fork over the money for it. They are doing this intentionally to me, tongue.gif

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.

Everything else gets played on the OLED 4k thumb.gif

There's a big difference between 240hz G-Sync and 144hz ULMB. I've tried ULMB and don't like how much stuttering there is between frames if that makes sense. It's almost too clear and you notice the lack of frames.

Response time is the most natural form of frame interpolation, I suppose.

now i won't feel as bad since i just bit the bullet and bought a PG279Q, am very satisfied with it despite it having some backlight bleeding. Hopefully this new monitor won't exhibit the same issues.

I bought the Dell 2176DG and it's good. I'm moving from a 60hz 4K monitor. I'm pretty happy but I miss that 4K poppy picture. Still, I'm happy with the dell and it will work until this monitor is released.

Samsung and LG both finished multi billion dollar OLED factories this year.
HDMI 2.1 supports up to 8K 120hz, with Variable Refresh Rate support.

I still say anyone getting a monitor this year is going to regret it (except when I bought the Monoprice 144hz 1440p monitor for $250, that was too good to pass up).

It's a nightmare to even get a decent VA or IPS monitor atm. It's gonna be years until we see good OLED monitors at prices normal people can afford.

Not to mention 2018 is going to be a tick year for OLED, as LG is implementing (according to them, on their newest panels) new material to produce better and brighter blues with longer lifetimes. On top of Game VRR and 4K120, 2018 is supposed to bring higher peak brightness to OLED.

actually surprisingly the CPU singlethread performance is the big bottleneck there. I play several of those on 4K and the gpu's indeed laugh at it but the poor coding where they used to program all in 1 thread created a bottleneck we'll never get rid of
