    With the recent multiple threads on high refresh monitors:
    - Now that we have decent 4k frame rates and
    - More 4K high refresh rate (> 120Hz) panels on the way and
    - Expectation next gen GPU's make this 100% viable/move to 4K gaming across the board

    figured was about time we have a thread dedicated to 4K panels.

    On that note- Scorptec's EOFY sale currently offering decent price on the 43" Gigabyte FV43U:
    - VA Panel, 144Hz, 2x HDMI 2.1 (albeit gimped 24Gbps), 3yr warranty for $899

    Lovely panel, used it in person. Only thing I disliked was the 'thicker' bezels.

    UPDATE:
    - RTINGS Monitor Table Tool HERE - use to compare panel reviews
    - You can add another column on the side by searching "4k" and adding PS5/XBOX 120Hz, to then filter by high refresh panels:

    Very likely we will get to 4k/120, we're already close:

    With the prices coming down relatively quickly on these I'm keen to know if anyone has the LG C2 42" yet and if so how are they finding it at 4K gaming in comparison to other regular monitors at or around that size.

    Updated main thread with RTINGS comparison table, which should serve as good starting point for newbies.

    RTINGS recent comparo here puts M32U at the top, which HUB also recently rated highly. Some vids to help people:



    EDIT: Corrected video of HUB roundup:

    squeezing an extra 30 - 40fps out of the top and mid tier cards is a bit of an ask.

    from that chart you're basically asking for a 50% jump in performance from the 3080 to the 4080 to keep the average around the 120fps mark. I'd love for it to be the case, but I think with out DLSS etc you're not going to brute force it especially with ray tracing starting to find its stride.

    Either you & nope are a pessimistic lot, or us 4K folk are non-realistic optimists ;)

    Really can't comment on the next gen Ray Tracing hit other than it goes without saying- we should see more improvements in its 3rd gen. But as for native 4k/120 (which those HUB charts above are), next gen GPU's better bloody get there otherwise I will be extremely disappointed with next gen GPU performance.

    Considering 4K is the defacto console standard now (even if its only 4K/60), you'd hope common sense prevails with PC 4K gaming...

    I ordered the Dell G3223Q for sub $900 thanks to ebay 22% off sale
    Predominantly just wanted a bigger screen and better colour gamut than my 27" 4k 60hz panels, and nice to be able to push higher frame rate if the game and my 3070/2080ti supports it.

    rg144 Nice idea for a thread. I'm pretty happy with my LG Oled but I'll still watch this thread everyday because FOMO.

    You guys are living in theory land where 4K benchmarks are performs at a brainless "Ultra" setting with no thought given to intelligent optimisation of in-game graphics settings.

    With a few smart settings choices 4K high refresh (100+ fps) is completely feasible today in many titles, I regularly achieve it with an OG 3080, and that's before we even mention DLSS and FSR 2.0, both of which make the goal even more attainable.

    Samsung's first 4K 240Hz Odyssey G8 (S32BG85) now on sale in US, should be here next month. US $1499, pricey!
    1ms curved Mini-LED VA with FALD (1196 dimming zones), HDMI 2.1. At this price would've liked to have seen USB 3.1 minimum instead of integrated USB 3.0 but its a meh point.

    165Hz version coming too (32" Odyssey G7- S32BG75).

    Google?
    Samsung, LG, MSI, Gigabyte all have 27-28" 4k high refresh rate panels for almost half of the price of that Asus ROG...

    I think this one is a little ridiculous/unnecessary, but I’m sure someone out there has been waiting for a high refresh 55” DP ;)

    Gigabyte going deeper in big panel gaming- S55U

    55” VA 120hz

    Nice! I was thinking about rearranging the study so I could go with a 55" oled that I have from the bedroom, but in the end just too big for the study no matter how I moved things around.

    Yeh a 55" for all day use is pretty damn crazy, we've only over the last few yrs accepted 48" thanks mainly in part to the LG's. And there really is a noticeable difference with 55, just like there is with 42 --> 48.

    Looks like we're moving pretty quickly into 4K high refresh now.
    Looking at a sheet I track- there are now close to 50 panels currently on the market that do 4k/120Hz+, vs < ~20 this time last year, most of which are still IPS and the obvious LG panel OLED's.

    Still nowhere near defacto standard of 1440p, but next gen will change this substantially I think and wouldn't be surprised if 2023/2024 are the big years people make the switch.
    Luke212 Sorry mate, didn't see your edits stating these (obviously didnt mean to be rude re "Goggle?" reply ;)

    Here's everything I have currently available in 27/28". Actually nothing smaller that 27" in 4K, for good reason ;):

    Acer IPS, 144Hz panels:
    - Acer CP3271K & CP7271K
    - Acer Predator X27 (also P variant)
    - Acer XB273K (also G and S variants)
    - Acer XB283 KV (28")

    Asus IPS, 144Hz:
    - Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ
    - Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ
    - Asus TUF VG28UQL1A (28")

    - Gigabyte M28U (28")
    - LG 27GN950
    - SI MAG281URF (28")
    - Samsung S28AG70 (28")

    That thing is nuts! If I didn't already have the fo48u I'd seriously consider this thing, wonder what $$$ they will ask?
