    Well, this is rather interesting.

    LG 38GL950G / 3840x1600 (curved) / G-Sync / 144Hz / 450 nits

    Obviously not quite full HDR (not even close) and the backlight tech isn't given, but could be rather impressive.

    I'm guessing £1500 at least though.

    What, no free sync? I am surprised given that you can still order the G-sync model of the 34GK950 on amazon, but the 950F version is completely sold out, seems a lot less people are interested in paying 200 dollars more for a lesser version that among things doesn't even allow for something as vital as sRGB view mode for us people who also wants to do content creation and general photo graphics work.

    Given this 38GL950 is 144hz G-sync, lets me to believe that it contain the expensive new g-sync modul.

    Lastly, Isn't this the same panel used in the 34GK950 monitor, just sliced into a bigger piece? Personally I think the 34GK950 is wide enough, they just need to make it taller

    Is this using the LM375QW2 panel? Seems the HDR level has slipped from earlier leaks though

    That's the technical term, yes.

    Definitely a good thing, keeps the cost to a sane level.

    Given the 34GK950G is £1200, circa £1500 seems plausible, but who knows... if it's nearer £2K that's going to be painful, but it'll have the market to itself.

    Ugh I almost hope the 38” is NOT going to be available soon because it basically ticks all my boxes. But I’m not waiting until 2020 to buy a new monitor...

    Also this will realistically be 2080/2080Ti or higher really required which is an unfortunate circumstance...

    A 1080Ti would do the job nicely. Even a 1080 wouldn't be too shabby, but if you're wanting to push the 144Hz, yeah, 2080Ti ideally. At the price this is going to be though, it's not for the budget gamer.

    Why do new monitors have such long lead times between their announcement and availability? It seems to be much longer than any other PC component.

    this was updated in the more recent panel development information from Lg.Display in October this year. LG.Display dropped the HDR spec from 1000 to 600. although it's not clear at this stage whether the 38GL950G monitor will feature HDR 600 even:

    It'll take me that long to get the boss (wife) to approve the expenditure! :p

    I'd happily upgrade to a 38" 144Hz ultrawide - will be v.interesting to see the price given the cost of the higher spec gsync module.

    And don't worry Daniel - I'm not expecting it anytime soon ;)
