    Unpacked and installed mine yesterday, been using it since last night. It's pretty awesome.
    Things to keep in mind - 1. It's pretty large. 2. It does not support Dell Display Manager (I have two other AW monitors which do). 3. It does not support PbP or PiP.
    You will be pushing 6million pixels, so look at the specs for games running in 4k resolution for a ball park. My i9/3080 will run full screen high res New World without problems, but will go up and down from 65fps in crowded areas to 115fps in the wilderness but starts hitting 98-99% gpu. Running a video at the same time on a different monitor is sketchy at times.

    [Edited pixel quantity to reflect OJRs figures and clarified statement]

    It’s a fair way off 4K dude
    3840x2160 = 8294400
    3840x1600 = 6144000

    you’re 2 million pixels short

    It's still a decent approximation for performance.

    Yeah, you are right. My figures are wrong. I was thinking of the Samsung g9 res, which was my other choice.

    bascially if your rig can run 4k @60fps.... i assume everything else is just cream on top going back to 1600p

    It’s a 25% difference and could be the difference between playable or unplayable. On my 6900XT I can get over 100fps on this screen, in all games that I play.

    Anyone want to buy mine? Stand has never been used - all original contents, packaging, etc. not a single mark on the monitor, etc.

    Needing something with USB-C and PBP for my daytime workflow now...

    interested in aw2721d to replace my dying u2410f any offer coming soon in january, or the ebay 25% off is good enough considering the supply chain woes?
    WTF is with "comprehensive computer cover by xcover.com" on ebay, is that similar to scammy second hand "car warranty packages" sold by caryards that doesn't do much anyway?
