    So heres a question.

    Can you run a Gsync Monitor and a Freesync Monitor at the same time??

    ie A Kogan 34" Ultrawide and a Predator 34P Ultrawide

    Don’t know
    It would depend on the drivers

    Many monitors are dual compatible adaptive sync . Anyway

    i wonder if that model has the same contrast problems as the 27" version...
    real world, as tested, response times and input lag times are very impressive though. for an ips panel.
    gsync..not sure if it works with freesync..it might. having a look

    https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/blog/lg-38gl950g-with-37-5-ultrawide-panel-144hz-and-g-sync/
    tft central usually do thorough reviews of monitors....hmm this is just an advance report, not the typical full review. not many reviews popping up as yet.

    https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/lg-intros-1ms-ultragear-ips-gaming-monitor-lineup.html
    a few differences to the other ultra gear panels. need to see full reviews for accurate verdict.

    I thought the same, but with HDR 1000 you tend to get blooming around bright objects... not sure if the lower brightness is really a deal-breaker for me with everything else this screen has on paper. I think 2020 is when HDR1000+ panels in ultrawide 3840x1600 become available from the likes of AU, so we'll see I guess.

    Well dude, I am getting 120fps with a 2080 Ti on my Asus XG43 in PUBG and it is amazing!

    If you turn down a setting or two you can easily hit over 120+ and it is far more worth it when you have fast fluid motion!

    Your loss if you think 2080 Ti can only do 60fps @ 4K.

    I have a Vanilla GTX1080 and get 60+ in Borderlands 3, just can't have all of the Candy to Max (Medium mostly). Monitors are only 60 (OC to 70) so that's all I need.

    ETAs have been updated. This isn't arriving until February next year.

    Scorptec ETA: 03/02/20
    PCCG ETA: 31/01/20

    Pass.

    EDIT: I'm really getting tired of companies doing paper launches with monitors; it fatigues the buyer and makes them uncertain about any commitment as something better is JUST around the corner by the time of release. By the time this is out (IF the Feb date sticks) CES 2020 will have occurred.

    Design the product
    Test the product
    Small production run
    Re-test
    Demo to the world
    Mass production
    First units arrive no more than 3 months later

    I had my heart set on one of these but pricing is higher than I had hoped and the delays killed it for me. I ended up grabbing its little brother instead on sale for $1450. Love it.

    Yes (confirmed yesterday). Nvidia allows you to choose each monitor independently so you can run 1 with gsync the other with none, or 1 with gsync and the other freesync under gsyc comparability which is exactly what i've done :)

    Yea same got the notification email.

    So tempting man, but without any real professional reviews on such a expensive monitor, very risky to go for it haha

    Even with the discount, paying $2.5k for a monitor is just dumb. Similar monitors will be $1500 in 6 months.
