    So would these now be a suitable replacement for a monitor?

    FULL HDMI 2.1 support TV/monitors please.

    TV/monitor makers like to cheat customers cherry picking what they want to implement from standards and what they won't as they do with fake HDR (400 nits VS 1000 nits) TV/monitors.

    FULL HDR (when HDR wars end...) and FULL HDMI 2.1 stardard compliant TV/monitors...

    I'm glad this is happening now, and now any later... They must be realizing the "streaming" sector (Twitch.TV) is selling monitors instead of TV's, and this is a way to get into that huge & growing market.

    Do you think moves like this could pressure Nvidia to support freesync or will they just support VRR?

    Isnt freesync just an enhanced version of VRR? Arent all VRR monitors essentially Freesync compatible? I think this is a HUGE step towards killing G-Sync / forcing Nvidia to support Freesync....

    Full HD at 120hz..yawn. Never really cared about freesync either. My current TV already does that. Wake me up when they got a 4k 120hz tv and a video card capable pulling it off.
    That being said, I've been using a TV as a monitor for years. Right now using a 43 inch 4k tv as my monitor and not regretting it at all. I know some really care about input lag but I never seemed to notice and much prefer the larger screen.

    They will continue to profit from G-Sync as long as they can. Eventually they may have to switch. The more products like these come out, the sooner they will have to consider it.


    EDIT: They still need to support all the G-Sync hardware out there, it will be while if they were to open to Free-Sync I think.

    I've been using a TV as a monitor since flat screens were available. I'll never go back to a small screen.

    I'd say that 4k 42" is much nicer then my original 40" 1080p, mainly do to clarity of text, but in general, the situation is great.

    personally, I've been waiting for a Free-sync TV, now we just need Navi to be available in store.

    Since monitors have FreeSync the manufacturers wouldn't bother putting in a TV specific technology. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure there are no VRR monitors.

    Unless you're gaming with some wicked 1080ti SLI @ 4k, you would be a prime candidate for getting a VRR/Freesync TV.When you game on a high speed screen with a GPU that can't keep up you have screen tearing which is what VRR solves.

    But hey, since you've had one for years you're a pro at this, right?

    Right now, i wouldn't go 120Hz as 1080ti isn't g strong enough to keep FPS up A4k.

    Nvidia's competition is AMD gpu's, which they dominate.

    Nvidia is selling over priced hardware for PC master race gaming of which TVs, and consoles are of no concern.

    You do realize that 1000nits isn't required for something to be HDR, right? It's the number several of the standards have determined to be the the qualifier for their endorsement but it doesn't mean something is or isn't HDR.

    Finally!!!! The "Media Center" TV I've been dreaming of for years is finally here! I was just hoping for 4K and adaptive sync. This also gets QLED, HDMI 2.1 and! 120hz @1080p! I mean, I'd still prefer OLED. But this checks off so many more features then any other TV till now. :-D

    Personally I'm disappointed with 15ms in game mode and also with HDMI 2.0 and 120hz only at HD res.. I've played for a year now in 4K on the TV, and the 60hz is an issue for online FPS play as well as the input lag - none of which are solved with the new set. It is a step in the right direction, but not a reason to switch TV (for me).

    Lol really? Thats as good as it gets for TVs mate. Less than a single 60fps lag is not causing any problems...

    Do you realize that there are a LOT of TVs with subpar HDR experience because they simply can't reach REAL 1000 nits in normal use , they don't have local dimming (or very few zones) and even use 8 bit panels!!!? :mad:
