Is there such a thing as a 4K HDR monitor?

    With Gsync? That doesn't cost £3000?

    I'm looking to get a gsync monitor and I want 4K of course, but HDR is becoming more and more regular in games and I've sampled it and it can be quite stunning.

    But a monitor that does all three of these doesn't seem to exist sub £2000 at the lowest.

    I'm kinda looking at no higher than £700 here!

    Any ideas?

    To answer your question,

    No, not at your price point.

    Have you checked the latest "Tesco Value 35inch 4k Gsync HDR" screen?

    It's probably gonna take a while. This is still the "early adopters" phase, where everything is overpriced.

    So when are these things actually going to get close to even £1K?

    I've no idea. My crystal ball says maybe 3 to 5 years.

    If you want 4K HDR at 700 pounds, I think your only answer might be a TV. TVs don't exactly make for great monitors but I'm quite certain there has to be 120Hz 4K HDR ones available, that's something.

    LG's ips tvs are good as monitors. They are not the best on either hdr or black, but they have low latency.

    I have a LG 65uj634v and it is surprisingly good to use with my pc ,trough nvidia shield 4k hdr@60hz
    (My main gaming i do on my belowed asus pg348q 3440x1440@100hz gsync, this is still one of the best monitors to buy before we get the new dp and hdmi standards).

    Todays displayport/hdmi do not have the bandwith for 4k, hdr, 120hz+. (need dp 1.5/ hdmi 2.2)

    Has to have gsync. Deal breaker. The TV thought had crossed my mind.

    FastSync is always an option. It has much lower input lag than regular VSync to the point that it can be felt. I'm using a FreeSync monitor with an nVidia card and I have no issues getting by with FastSync.

    Believe me when I say that fast sync is not even remotely as good as gsync. Seriously, gsync is way better.

    Quite, fast sync is just triple buffering, with the added bonus of stuttering when fps exceeds the refresh rate.

    There's something definitely different about it. Just plain triple buffering has enough input lag to kill us all. FastSync has a small fraction of that. And I've never experienced that stuttering.

    It's physically impossible to not get stutter if your monitor runs at, say 120Hz, and the game runs at 92FPS. Fast sync can't fix that. Fast sync does not fix stuttering. It only allows for lower input lag by running the game without vsync.

    I didn't say it does, he made it sound like it's the cause of stuttering.

    Well, nvidia new G-syng HDR module itself cost $550, so unless hell freeze and Nvidia start supporting freesync there is no way for $700 display.

    I think OLED monitors are in greater demand than high-end UHD gaming monitors

    I don't think so, there are still huge burn in issues on OLED which makes it really unpractical to use as monitor.
