    It's the only one at the moment available for sale.

    It's currently geared for the professionals of our world who really need accurate colour representation - the specs are not designed for gamers.

    Though as the technology improves, I'm sure there's going to be a higher refresh rate OLED type panel become available.

    I'm not sure where panel technology will go. If we take televisions for example, OLED is still not the major player in panel technology. For colour presentation, OLED is definitely the winner, however there's HDR LED and we're still at a place where the majority of manufacturers are doing LED panels and only one doing OLED.

    Correct me if I am wrong, LG owns OLED and as part of their brand re-imaging (going premium) are holding that for themselves.. Each time I see an OLED panel at the shops I just stop and adore it.. I have owned some damn nice Plasmas (Panny VT65 was the last one) which were getting to and beyond the Panny Kuro levels but OLED is just amazing.

    Still got a heap of drawbacks, but for me at least in a TV sense are no issue at all. I had hoped that by the end of this year we will start to see the OLED become readily available for PC but its taking its time. I haven't really researched why, almost tempted to buy a small OLED tv and try it out for PC.. though without the fast refresh I'll end up in tears.

    Nope.

    A few manufacturers have had OLED TV's out in other markets, but OLED's have been used for years by Samsung in Phones, I've installed OLED keypads for control systems since about 2010 or so, and Sony and Samsung are dropping OLED TV's on the Aus market shortly.

    From memory, Sony even had an 11" TV in about 2008 or so...

    Dolby Vision is betamax itl die off haha.. HDR10 doesnt require royalties!

    Lets just get proper HDR10 panels (Wide color gamut VA with 1000+ nit peaks, 4000:1 native contrast with 20,000:1 dynamic contrast with 1000 dimming zones.)

    I dont think ill ever be satisfied with IPS HDR panels.

    Isn't HDR10 too bright for gaming?

    Nope, especially if done right.. 1000nits in small areas in small bursts is fine.. some TV's can peak @ like 2500nits.

    Edit: If a game dev is a prick they could always program max brightness in a large area which in theory yes will be like looking at a bright light bulb if 1000+ nits.
