An impressive achievement 4k @144Hz almost IPS display, but how fast is the G2G trans?
I'm not sure why it's an achievement. There's been 480Hz 4K IPS panels for the DIY crowd. It's just that the monitor manufacturers didn't have any interest. It's not an achievement, actually.
This or 65 inch LG C7 / 65 inch Sony X900F / 65 inch Samsung Q8FN ?
Nope 55" LG C7 is 1300EUR over here and B7 1250 EUR
that Acer monitor in Newegg is out of stock now
New tech is always overpriced but this is ridiculous, this reminds me of the days when it cost £1000 for a CD writer, now you can pick one up for a tenner,
fact is people who pay these prices are mugs and people with sense will wait and prices will fall it's just a waiting game.
At this price it's already entering OLED tech range... which natively extremely small pixel response time (microseconds instead of miliseconds), perfect black pixels (in the darkness) and perfectly useful for HDR due to (near) infinite contrast ratio.
It doesn't have to be brighter than the sun for a good HDR experience !
1000E is the max acceptable price for an LCD monitor, doesn't matter what filter technology it uses.
I have been waiting for this monitor since it was announced, holding on to my first 4K @ 60 Hz Freesync monitor.
And looking to the prices, hold on still I will for the foreseeable future.
It looks and feels nice, and new, with all the gimmicks of brand new technologies. But that price is just not for me, I would rather upgrade my CPU into an Intel Core i9 7980XE (selling my i9 7920X in the process) rather than spending the a similar amount of money into a screen.
For those of you who can afford such a peace of hardware, enjoy and share your experience.
I can afford it, but its not worth at that price, plus 27" is just too small for 4k.
For 2500,- I would expect 34"+ screen,120Hz+ 10bit panel with 14 bit look up table, DP1.4 HDMI 2.1 and TB3 connectivity, 75% Rec2020, 3-5 year on site advance replacement warranty and pretty much 100% deffect fee.
We already have better productivity monitors minus high refresh rate and G-sync in 1-1.5k range and simply higher refresh rate, G-sync, subpar panel quality (I doubt AUO sudenly improved) and subpar warranty is simply not worth additional 1-1.5k.
i can see shortage of current monitors coming soon, so every one will be forced to by the new modles, just like the fake ram shortage.
LG should be releasing new monitors in next 2-3 months and I expect Samsung to do as well, including HDR and G-sync ones.
Exactly, and they get away with it. Can you imagine?
Dragging politics into this thread is pretty much not helping anyway... and no they don't get €2000+ monitors for free... don't know where you read that...
Clearly, you didn't get the joke. Oh well.
Nah I think I just don't think this particular post of your's is funny. Oh well, can't be like that all the time
This silly price is no surprise to most of us, this is by no means the 1st thread about the new gen uber-monitors. I bought a Dell U2711 IPS 60Hz monitor 8 years ago and I paid £700. it felt like a lot but I was still working then so could put it through as a business expense.
I'm using 2 x EVGA Custom 780's so to upgrade to 2 x Ti version of the next NVidia cards + this screen will cost me £2,000 + £1,800? (possible monitor price after waiting for price drop). So £3,800 to upgrade my current set-up. Sorry Mr NGreedier and Mr Asus, whilst I have the funds I don't wish to be price gouged and my interest in gaming will fade away consequently. I'll spend spare cash on other things that provide a more cost effective kind of enjoyment, things I will use more hours per annum or are much less specialist.
And to reiterate what someone else has already said, I very much doubt whether the Ti version of the next NVidia card will be able to drive this spec screen. After all, NVidia upgrades are provided on a parsimonious basis, it will be at least the gen after and unless the SLI perf is properly available with most or all of the AAA games, paying for two cards is a rather pointless business.
On the contrary, I find it hilarious considering the fact this is an ongoing "joke".
