Why can't someone play 8 hours of games on a weekend? If they've got the free time to do so... why not.

skupples agreed, my 34 is about as big as I can handle, even in ultra-wide. I rather add on additional panels at that point due to basic functionality of a truly independent display.

I've actually got it all laid out now, I've found perfect little 24 inch monitors that'll match (in portrait) the sides of the 31.5" wide screen size everyone uses.

m4fox90 Yeah I'm gonna need 27-35 for desktop use. I've tried to use my Samsung 50" and while HDR BFV looks great, the screen size is just silly.

JackCY No price, only estimate of release which with Dell is like a crystal ball prediction. It uses the same old LG panel no? Will they even care to be price competitive with other LG OLED panel devices? Or will they again say screw it and price it at twice the price that would even make sense?
At least in this case the OLED panel is on market for a long time now so it's less likely to turn into yet another DELL vaporware.

55" is huge and for 4k a bit too much for PC use. In other words they are trying to sell a gaming TV where you sit far away.

It better have strobing that works in Async mode even if the max brightness in strobing mode is low.

Probably?!? Intel announced support too, so did Xbox and a lot of TVs will support VRR this year. It is already pretty standard and next year it will probably be close to ubiquitous.

AMD uses Freesync over HDMI already and Nvidia just added support for the Display Port version of this tech

VRR is standard now! I didn't think it would be so soon after G-sync came out. AMD getting it added to the next standard turned out to be amazingly effective.

It has display port! Everyone loves display port (4K120 with a 2080Ti). It is also missing all the smart TV features so it will probably think of itself as a monitor. My LG TV thinks it is a TV and does stupid stuff because of it, like going bright blue for 10 minutes when the monitor is put to sleep.

I wouldn't mind being able to game 8+ hours a day. That'd mean I'd have the free time to do so!
