The Ideal Monitor (or, the closest thing to it)

Submitted on Tuesday, September 17, 2019

Strengths of the product

- Amazing colours (calibrated out of the box in sRGB Mode) - Brightness/contrast that is more comparable to top of the line TVs than other monitors - True HDR (when you have content that supports it) - High refresh rate - 4K resolution - G-SYNC

Weaknesses of the product

- Price tag is definitely on the high end, but is understandable - Need to run at 98Hz to get 10 bit colour & 4:4:4 (cord limitation, not monitor) - Kind of wished they offered a 32" option (personal pref. not a big deal)

Additional Comments

This monitor has it all! Everything that I've wanted in a monitor ever since I got into 4K years ago. It is a bit of a bummer that the cable limits you to 98Hz if you want to enjoy all that it has to offer, but this isn't a big deal for a couple reasons. First, pushing 4K above 98 FPS is no small feat and practically impossible for some AAA titles. Second, 98Hz with G-SYNC is a huge improvement over my previous 60Hz 4K and takes you most of the way to 144Hz in my opinion. One thing that I did discover (while playing WoW Classic at least). If I cap my FPS to the monitor refresh rate or higher, G-SYNC isn't running. So, I've just capped it at 93 FPS (5% decrease) and G-SYNC is working like a dream. To Ian's comment, I'm having no problem getting true 10 bit as long as I limit refresh to 98Hz. I tested it out myself and if I go above 98Hz, it switches to 8 bit with dithering. If your computer is telling you that you are getting 8 bit with dithering, I recommend using the NVIDIA Control Panel to manually set it to 98Hz & 10 bit and check again. To Roy's comment, the gamer aesthetic with all the lighting is a bit obnoxious, but was very easy to turn off!

Best All around Monitor you can get in this era until HDMI 2.1 or DP 1.5(?) is widely adopted.

Strengths of the product

Beautiful colours, proper HDR, high refresh rate, G-SYNC.

Weaknesses of the product

Not a true 10 bit panel. Uses 8bit+FRC bit really isn't noticeable. The only thing that could have been better is a true 10 bit panel, otherwise this is the best Monitor all around in the DP 1.4 era. (or Acer x27). You pay for the best.

Additional Comments

Maxes out DP 1.4, 4k@98hz 4:4:4 10 bit colour 4k@120hz 4:4:4/RGB 8bit colour no sub sampling 4k@144hz 4:2:2 Chroma Subsampling. Doesn't look that great Until HDMI 2.1 is adopted, these are the best configurations that can be achieved via DP 1.4. You don't need a 20xx series Nvidia card to use this monitor. GTX 1050 and higher can output full bandwidth over DP 1.4 (with an Nvidia firmware update to your card).
