    1440p UW is pretty hard to pull 144hz with even a 6800xt, let alone 165hz.

    But still nice.

    i really wish LG would stop edge lighting their (otherwise excellent) panels especially on an UW.
    i have seen LG (sourced) panels with FALD that blow away the standard LG even though they are the exact same panel.

    Poo poo VA. All I need is a 120 Hz IPS ultra-wide.

    At times i do miss my 29 inch LG IPS ultrawide but it was only 2560x1080 75hz and not curved.

    I'd be happy as hell if my MonoPriceG 35 inch UW 3440x1440 100hz VA was IPS with HDR.
    VA panels seem to have better blacks but the colors and vibrance on IPS is something else.

    This will have most likely 48 to 165 range for variable rr so if anything 165 is a nice high ceiling ! No need to constantly hit 165 fps :p

    Exactly. My MonoG is 48-100hz.
    It will actually overclock to 120hz with freeysnc off.
    But its more with having freesync on with enhanced sync.

    I have a LG UW that i really like so this one seems interesting but i´, planning on using my screen for a few more years before buying another one.

    I use Nvidia´s DSR to get close to 3440x1440 when playing games and i do just fine with my 1080Ti. For example Cyberpunk runs very well on my system.

    The "secret" is there´s no point on setting the graphics options to mega/uber or whatever that destroy the frame rates for little returns over the high settings present on most games.

    My screen is capable of 144hz but i prefer to limit it to 120hz to avoid ghosting and overshooting. It´s better this way.

    Im happy with 100hz after even having a 144 superwide 3840x1080 before going back to this monitor.

    I love 3440x1440. Its the perfect IQ spot and performance for someone like me. I hate 16:9 so 4k is trash to me and 5120x1440 is just too damn demanding but pretty.

    huh, I already had the LG 34GN850-B which is UW 1440p 160hz IPS monitor back in 2020, couldn't hold a candle against LG OLED CX though.
