Yeah right, the F791 has 1500R curvature.
Could indeed be the Microboard one (always manufactured by Samsung by the way), so now I have to read 97 pages of related thread I guess... biggrin.gif

I talked to a store in Portugal and they said the release date is 16/02/2017.

Yeah it is probably using the same panel as the Microboard/Crossover.
These are all 8-bit panels - all Samsung 34'' VA ones and the upcoming AUO 35'' and 31.5'' VA also seem to be going to be 8-bit only.
To me this seems like an unnecessary stagnation.
Won't be good for any future HDR versions either - they'll have to make new panels for that, at least with dithered 10 bits.
If you want 8bit+FRC ultrawide you have to get one with IPS panel.

Yeah, quite strange indeed, especially considering that 8bit+FRC seems to work quite well in simulating 10bits and shouldn't add too much to the cost (for example the massive Philips BDM4037UW has it and is a VA panel).

The omission is especially puzzling in the F791, considering the premium price at which is currently sold..

You are right it could be the panel of the microboard M340CLZ because it's the same curve, same contrast, exactly same display viewing area and view angle.

BUT the ASUS panel is better because :

M340CLZ freesync = 60Hz - 100Hz
M340CLZ response time = 8ms GTG
whereas
MX34VQ freesync = 48Hz - 100Hz
MX34VQ response time = 4ms GTG

and from what I know the microboard M340CLZ panel has not any flickering / purple / ghosting issue, so it's a pretty good news.

You can see the official specs of the microboard M340CLZ here

that would be quite the "microboard killer", then. Similar price, but you can actually buy it in a real shop and not play the stupid gambling game thumb.gif

What I find strange is the super-quiet release. CF791 has been hyped for months, and this Asus monitor... just appeared out of nowhere.

The Asus was exposed on some big computer show in 2016, and also at the CES 2017, but few people talked about it on the net, I think Asus didn't send any monitor to the press.
But now some reseller have order it from Asus, we will start to hear more about it.

And maybe it's because Asus did not advertise this monitor that his price is good, who knows smile.gif

Wrong. Microboard is 42-100. And the response time is listed as 8ms native and 4ms overdrive. Asus is probably already in OD mode. They are the same panels.

Don't link to Linus as any kind of credible source. The man is an idiot and a corporate shill. He complained about the flickering on this monitor even though he used an nvidia GPU to test the freesync. Moron.

In the manual says the Asus MX34VQ has TraceFree (Overdrive):

Trace Free:
Speeds up the response time by Over Drive technology. The
adjusting range is from lower 0 to faster 100.

That means it gives you 6 overdrive options to choose from (0-20-40-60-80-100). Much better chance of getting a good balance between ghosting/overshoot.
Asus are one of the very few companies that usually implement good Overdrive.

no matter if Linus is an idiot or not, but I don 't think the user manual in the video is a fake one...
Then give us a link with the official microboard specs or stop talking
