    I just bought the Samsung 27" CHG70 HDR gaming monitor there last week! Still, IPS is expensive and I'm happy with what I got, especially the price. We'll know more when this monitor is actually released and at what price point.

    Rev 1.0 as advertised;
    Rev 2.0 stealthily gets rid of 10bit panel.
    ...
    Rev 4.0b 1080p 75hz panel.

    Hopefully we will see some real quality panels for good price in near future. Still waiting for some proper OLED ones.

    27", freesync (2?), 2560x1440, 144Hz, ips, not curved... the display i've been waiting for, just perfect. Now make it 250-450 euros and i will order it as soon as it hits shelves. Two big hardware shopping plans for me for this year: navi gpu and this display.

    well freesync is no brainer to implement with the adaptive sync becoming standard and freesync being free .... there is no reason not too .

    oooooo kay...

    reading the tea leaves of this monitor...
    insufficient backlighting.

    if it is a true 10 bit monitor, Gigabyte must've not felt comfortable (i.e. blooming? design parameters for depth of chassis? etc...) with the brightness requirements for full HDR, or to even certify it as a lower HDR rating.

    on the other hand, if it is a true 10 bit panel then the colors should be very, very good. granted that the best place for HDR content is the p.c./internet, there is a growing fondness in gaming. if the price comes inline with ViewSonic or Dell non-HDR wqhd sets, this could be a winner.
    but i'd want all the mod-cons on a new monitor.

    I was going to say review samples will be as advertised then the retail product will be a 1080p TN, but yeah, we all know what those sons of whores do.

    They usually cut to the chase and frack the product right on revision 2. Paid $100 more than similar products for that better power delivery system on the motherboard? Too bad for you, it's revision 2, no 8 phase power delivery for you, just 2 with doublers. Enjoy.

    If you're wondering what they do to video cards, aside from the obvious which is swapping the RAM to garbage reject samples that can't OC, and using crappier capacitors; they use crappier fan components that are louder, and have with lower life expectancy. The most their reps would admit to me is that there's something "different" about the "PWM of the fans". That was their revision 1.1 of the most expensive GTX 970 available. Disgusting.

    After watching/seeing my OLED TV, I do need OLED/mLED only now. TN/IPS sucks.

    Is it just me or there are more FreeSync monitors being announced than G-Sync? Not complaining or anything, but just an observation. Maybe because AMD's upcoming GPU lineup looks promising?

    Hasn't that always been the case though?

    The vast majority of displays out there that support some form of variable refresh support Freesync over G-sync at least and that's been true for a while.

    I don't think this tells us anything about AMDs coming cards one way or another, only that Freesync displays (being cheaper to produce and buy) sell better overall.

    Oh yeah, I agree, there has been always more FreeSync displays than G-Sync, but this CES seems to be heavier on FreeSync displays than it has been in the past. Hopefully AMD does announce promising GPUs to go with these new displays.

    Now that we know Nvidia is going to support VESA Adaptive Sync going forward that might also have played a part. :)
