    ** LG 27GP950 AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW - LIMITED AVAILABILITY **

    Since getting my 27GP950, my old ROG Swift (1440p144) is to the left where my 2nd monitor used to be, on the same cable that was running my old 2nd monitor (1440p60). I have noticed that flickering to black every now and again, but had assumed it was that crappy cable and have not yet bothered...

    Interesting, I wonder how many people are suffering this on a 10 series card without DSC? Hitting 4k120 without DSC do you need to use 4:2:2?

    If you change the colour depth to 4:2:2 you should be able to hit 4k60hz. The monitor you had before was 1440p60hz which is doable on HDMI 1.4. For Desktops, nVidia 10 series (1060, 1080, etc) and later have HDMI 2.0, and can do 4k60 over HDMI. nVidia 30 series (3060, 3080, 3090 etc) have HDMI...

    I haven't seen any of these black screen issues, I have heard with the GN950 that people struggled to hit 160hz with the included cable? FWIW my GPU is a 3090. I have previously noted when connected to my TV by a 10m HDMI cable, that where I did get occasional dropouts at 4k60 4:4:4 on the old...

    So go into your fee free student overdraft and buy it elsewhere, with the refund covering it, or cancel your OcUK order and order wherever it's in stock first, this is very much a you problem let's be fair. Them taking the money at time of order is normal, most retailers would do that.

    Ah, fair enough, that info was about 7 years out of date :D

    Spending the last £750 of your student loan on a monitor and not being able to afford another £750 while you wait for the refund (e.g. you've already maxxed out your student overdraft and credit card) is not a sound financial decision. In any case, not taking payment up front would be far more...

    So, I've swapped out the stand on mine for one from a BenQ PD2700Q (which is now on my wall mount above the main monitor where my 3rd monitor lives) and much more happy with it, way less depth, it actually moves down all the way, and swivels left and right. Why do high end monitors come with...

    I'm definitely not impressed with the stand, it's about a foot from the wall and minimum ~125mm off the desk. Will have to look at alternative stand options.

    Thanks, I think I will stick with HDMI, 4k120 @ 12bpp is probably fine. I have an Index (DP), and two other DP monitors (RoG Swift and a BenQ 1400p60 IPS panel), so no free DP anyway without unplugging the Index constantly. I was about to calibrate the monitor but it's very annoying as with...

    I thought the point of HDMI2.1 was that I could do 144hz without DSC? 48GBps of bandwidth over DP1.4's 25GBps, but it seems to cap at 120hz, which DP could do anyway? I guess it's the fact that I can do 120hz at 12 bit colour? might just leave it like that, I don't have enough displayports...

    I managed to get one!! Anyone can recommend a not-stupidly-priced HDMI 2.1 cable?

    What time did your order go through? Hopefully they come back in stock some time in sept I guess :(

    Yeah except once you've bought the vouchers to do so at a discount through your employer's discount scheme, it's still showing as in stock but the purchase won't complete, and now it's showing as in stock in some browsers but not others and won't even get that far, and now I'm stuck with a load...

    It seems completely pointless for consoles, they don't have near enough power for 4k120. Hell, I'm expecting more like 60-80 from my 3090.

    Is it still possible to preorder the 27gp950? I've been checking this thread intermittently for a while but like everything these days it seems the window.of opportunity is very small!!

    I broke it! | RTX 3090 Water block install gone wrong

    A few years back I successfully claimed on my house insurance for a 1080ti I lost due to an accidental Water Cooling leak when filling my loop.
