    It's funny they wrote all that marketing blurb about the two 34" monitors and yet omitted the main spec feature of screen resolution....

    3840x2160 is mentioned but that's 16:9 so I assume the 21:9 ones are going to be 3440x1440 if I remember the screen resolutions for that aspect ratio correctly.

    Hmm strange at their website it says

    Native Auflösung 3440 x 1440
    Bild
    max. Auflösung 2560 x 1080 @ 144 Hz

    So 2560x1080 @144 hz however 3440x1440 @60 hz?

    Yeah. I don't know how these guys think who would buy these in high volumes? AMDs market share is ridiculously low, especially on high end. You basically need high end NV card to run these screens with latest games but G-Sync is not supported which doesn't make much sense.

    I run 3440x1440 just fine on a 290x. AMD loves high resolutions... plus a lot cheaper to implement adapative sync(freesync) then royalty laden g-sync.

    Most people who have the money to buy all this high end stuff buy NVidia gpus. This monitor is a waste. I'm don't care either way about brands "they dont come visit the family or take me to dinner" but it's the truth.

    A 290x, is a lot different than 3x Crossfire 290x..

    Yeah it should be but then there's AMD's Crossfire support lately. :p
    (Well they did just release a driver for Battlefield 1 and Mankind Divided so I guess it's improving slightly, at least for the big profile games or games supported by AMD in some way.)

    That 38" monitor isn't as big as I thought. It looks really nice, wish it had higher res. and at lest 100hz.
