degenn Even with the correction/update confirming it is DP1.4, at a price of $3999 compared to C9's @ $1600 that have HDR and HDMI 2.1... it's probably DOA. Imagine how much Dell/AW would charge for a G-Sync Ultimate iteration!

to be fair, their laptops have always been top notch. IMO that's why they're still around.

Also the same size qled 8k, that should also do 4k120 (if it follows the same pattern as the 1440p120 4k qled) is $1k less. But qled's blacks and viewing angles are worse.

Whenever a GPU finally comes out with HDMI 2.1 support, it will be ready for that too.

I expect this panel to come from LG like most dell panels. So either way, it is a win for LG.

LG 2019 OLEDs have HDMI 2.1, in theory at least, but we won’t know how well it works until GPU makers support it.
I’m shocked that TV manufacturers of all people seem to have actually listened before the GPU companies. At this point the lack of HDMI2.1 on the market today is entirely AMD and Nvidia’s fault when they still came out and shipped entirely new cards in 2019 without the spec.

Replacing 60Hz 100 Adobe RGB IPS monitor for 100% sRGB ultrawide 120Hz was no brainer...but replacing a 65" HDR1000 OLED TV with Dolby Vision? It's got to be very very good...

I'll definitely be whipping up new solutions for both, once I get into a new place... ~18-24 months from now. I'm currently downsized to a single room, so I'll have no choice but to get & build all new stuff. We'll also have a plethora of HDMI 2.1 stuff on the market in ~24 months, so that's perfect.
Looks like I misunderstood the hangup with giant screens again. I'm an oddball with screens. That avatar is from my bedroom from 2014. TV's there since my house is 1100sq ft and was the only real option for a big screen over my lap. The other potential walls are block and the thing would pull out. Plus I noticed my 13'x7.5' living room wall was basically 16x9 so I made that one a bit over 14' projection screen But the daughter and I usually watch the 65" qled in that room instead since the sectional has to be rearranged for the projector. Small houses are cheap. But you can still do some nice things with limited space.

HDMI 2.1 is worth waiting for. I just picked up the qled since my plasma TV started putting up a big vertical bar and I unexpectedly found the 2018 Samsung for over 40% off. No sale announcements, I walked in to the Walmart 3 days after I was there last to check out a questionably adequate Vizio in my budget and most of the tv display wall was bare. Closeout clearance. The Samsung was $900 so I settled, otherwise I would have waited. For a while longer at least, until having my sectional cutting across my living room with the blackout curtains closed way too much to watch the projector drove me nuts.
Been connector bandwidth limited for too long.
