    As long as they can get the peak brightness high enough (oleds only weak point), it will absolutely smash it everywhere except in the size format. Oled has instant pixel response times with no ghosting, 0 backlight bleeding because there isn't one, and infinite contrast ratio. They are something else to game on in a dark room.

    Don't hate me but Linus did a video on the QD-OLED. Not sure if there's another forum topic and i don't really care to look. :)



    Was a good watch. I do like how Linus acknowledges how his review was in a Samsung curated environment and doesn't recommend it yet, but he sounds very excited by the updated tech. :)

    I must resist to replace my 4 x 34" with these.
    Not going to spend $2k for one.

    Now that is some nice kit….but I have a feeling other companies are going to jump on the qd-oled train if Dell is getting on it in 2022.

    Would be great for a PC only sim rig, ticks all my boxes, but not being able to get 120Hz (only 100Hz via HDMI) with a PS5 / XBox Series X is a show stopper if you would use either system (GT 7 for instance).

    Can the PS5/XB output 100Hz? i.e. not just 60Hz or 120Hz? If so, 100Hz is a pretty good experience either way. Agree it's a strange compromise given the other tech it's crammed in.

    Pretty sure it's just 60 or 120, so you would be limited to 60. Xbox at least has VRR, but that only kicks in at below 60 (for a 60Hz display) or below 120 for a 120Hz display, also doesn't seem that this monitor would supports VRR, so a bad match for consoles. Also I think PS5 is funny about 1440p, whereas the Xbox can at least (edit: render) display natively at that res.

    RGB instead of WRGB will be epic. The new QD-OLED by Samsung are looking amazing.. but likely $9,000+ AUD for the 65" TV.

    So I wonder how these monitors will be priced.

    I know the PS5 supports 40fps mode @ 120hz on ratchet and clank which is an odd one.

    Apparently 1440 support is coming which is good.

    Wish there was a 38" version. Currently have the AW3821DW and don't really want to drop size and resolution. Damn.

    garbage resolution imo!

    2022 and still essentially a stretched 1440p monitor as top end is a bloody joke!

    Should be 5k ultrawide for top end

    we have hdmi 2.1 so bandwidth is no longer the issue it once was!

    High refresh gaming screen, gamers don't want resolutions they can't play games at more than 30fps.

    This is a 175hz OLED gaming monitor, if you want higher resolution at slower speeds there are plenty of other OLED options already.

    then why release a 240hz 4k monitor lol!

    5k ultrawide is only 10 mill vs 8mill pixels of 4k

    by that logic, their 4k 240hz is completely useless!

    if they can release a 4k 240hz then 5k 144hz is easy!

    It should be on their flagship UW size, 38" 3840x1600. I'd never consider going back to a 34" UW as the lack of vertical height annoys me, 38" is a more appealing size. The pricing will likely hurt when compared to the upcoming 42" C2.

    Agreed. I had a 34" and found it not high enough. I have a 38" AW 3840x1600 now and it's better but I'd still like more height. I wouldn't go back to 34" with 1440 unless I had to.

    The 175hz limitation is there because of the Gsync Ultimate module, which is why it's also limited to HDMI 2.0. The Neo G8 is 240hz as it uses DSC, which seeing how it's been implemented in the Neo G9 will likely mean plenty of issues

    Looking at the brightness of this, they've had to make major concessions to get their three year warranty. 1000 nits is only at a 1% window, and 450 nits at 10%

    Its odd. 1000 nits at 1% and 450 nits at 10%. Yet the 100% window brightness is 250 nits, more than LG oled and even the new Sony QD OLED.

    As QD-Oled is an expensive tech atm and Samsung Display are only creating two panel sizes for the consumer TV market 55 and 65inch, both the Samsung and Dell 3440x1440 QD-OLED monitors are being created from damaged or faulty panels that cant be used in the TV market and are getting cut to the smaller monitor size.

    These will be scarce and mighty expensive.
