    Don't I remember Hilbert reviewing an earlier ASUS 4K screen with DSC? Wasn't DSC the compromise to bring the price down? Sorry if I'm mis-remembering.....And HDR600 isn't worth having, nothing below HDR1000 is, this comes up regularly in monitor reviews.
    But gamers will have to accept compromises IF they don't wish to pay huge money for the ASUS 32" monitor with HDR1400 due out later this year. I'm sure it will be a fantastic monitor but at some huge cost no doubt. I bought my ASUS PG35VQ at £1,800 with these facts in mind, it's an incredible screen for gaming

    So... whatever happened to the 4K 120hz, 1400 nits, Mini LED, HDMI 2.1 monitor Asus announced back in August last year? You know, the monitor they said would be ready in 27, 32, 43" in time for 2020 holiday season?

    LOL, a monitor for plebs costing 10.000$ ain't gonna happen.

    Honestly, who cares about hdr for gaming... it more often than not looks worse than sdr.

    Looks good... what matters to me is what the cut off point for g-sync is... if it's 48 hz, then it's a pass for me. If it's 30 hz, then i might very well get this monitor as a replacement for my xb321hk.

    Wait? Why is hdmi 2.1 limited to 120hz? Can't hdmi 2.1 push closer to 200hz?

    Only thing I can see if they cheaper out a few bucks on the ports and they're not full bandwidth. Yet this monitor will be well over a grand.

    Honestly at this point I just want LG to make their TVs a tad smaller at 32-35 inches and go from there. Considering they got that 48 inch model for about a grand thats oled, 120hz HDR 1000 and will be cheaper than this. Just seems like insanity to me. Monitor makers are taking the piss you'd expect paying £1000 you'd get all the bells and whistles but you often have to pay double or triple that. In which case I could pick up a few lg TVs and I'd I get burn in a couple years down the line so what I'll grab another one and still save a buck

    That's the monitor I refer to in my post, TFT Central estimate it will be out Q2 2021 but it's going to be very, very expensive.

    LG is bringing out a 42" version of their 'gaming suitable' OLED with GSynch & 120Hz refresh, haven't heard of anything smaller than 42" being released. How many non-gamers would want an expensive TV smaller than 42"?

    You're right but some games like Tomb Raider, Battlefield V, Metro Exodus & Far Cry 5 look superb. Presumably Cyberpunk 2077 also? The 3080 is a game changer

    You're way out with the price! It's about £1,500 for the LG 48CX OLED, I see Currys PC World selling for £1,479

    No, cyberpunk looks off with hdr.
    HDMI 2.1 can do 4k at 240 hz. So yeah, kinda lame if it only supports 144 hz over displayport.

    For the amount of money they are going to ask for this thing, I'd rather stick with my 1440p ultrawide for cheaper. I can see this as a "do it all monitor" for those that want something they can hook their PC up to and also their PS5/Series X. I don't think many will be willing to pay for it though. HDMI 2.1 will trickle down to cheaper monitors/TV's over the next year. Watch this thing be $1500. No thanks.

    They put prices up? I got my 55inch C9 for £1250 a year ago now and thats a bigger screen... just seen yeah the 48 inch is odd price, 55 inch is cheaper than it right now at £1299 :/ really it should be cheaper and closer to a grand so not sure what is going on there, last I checked it was £1099

    That's right, the 55" is cheaper, it was commented on in more than one of the reviews of the 48" LG that I've read. I seem to remember that the LG 48" OLED is the best for PC gaming so LG probably reckon they can charge a premium price for the smaller screen. If there had been a 40" LG OLED with 4K,120Hz & GSynch Ultimate, I might have bought that instead of the ASUS PG35VQ as it will be several more generations of NVidia cards before 120Hz refresh possibly became an issue.
    The PG35VQ is 3Kish so easier to drive, here are the FPS for a 3440 x 1440 ultrawide for the 3080:

    I Did see LG are releasing a ultrawide 1440p monitor, which could be interesting, though its only up to 180hz love or hate that, but thats 34 inches.

    That PG35VQ, can you get the full 200hz? or does it do chroma subsampling to get that higher over DP 1.4?

    Nevermind, saw guru3d review on it, why I'm waiting on hdmi 2.1 versions so there isn;t chroma subsampling
