    put another grand and get the AW5520QF its 2999 $ its a dream monitor 4k 120hz, OLED 0.5ms pixel response time, but i'd only buy one if it were 500$ considering it would last me 1-2 years and idk who plans to change monitors like video cards.

    Because it will be running at 4:2:2 chroma and overshooting like hell with terrible black bleed trailing and will in affect be unusable but they can still claim its a 175Hz screen and that wikll be all that matters

    Sitting in front of a 55" would make my eyes bleed.

    Why would you possibly want that if there is cheaper G-Sync compatible LG C9 with HDMI 2.1 and some HDR capabilities as well?

    How is 160 Hz 8 bpc mode working for you? Are there any new observations?

    I've been using the monitor at 175Hz since day 1 but 160Hz with RGB 8bpc works just like 144Hz according to my testing. I think they didn't advertise the monitor as 160Hz native because the Gsync module needs overclocking to achieve that. Other than that it should be identical to using 144Hz.

    So LG don't sell directly meaning we're basically waiting for either OcUK or Rainforest UK to stock this right? And not a peep out of @Gibbo so...Denmark order before Brexit?

    That sounds quite positive. I think this is definitely gonna be my next monitor. I'm happy with my existing 38" monitors bar the refresh rate.

    I assumed the suggestion was that 175hz in general was just marketing.

    That's even better. I've got 2x Acer 38" Ultrawides and one LG 38UC99 Ultrawide, but it's the Acer ones I use on my desk.

    That's excellent news! Surprised that they kept it so quiet though.
    Let's hope they can get them into the market now for a bit of competition with LG.

    Think I'll prefer the Acer if it comes out at the same time or first, bet it'll be a little cheaper as well

    Well if the price is set the same, the Acer panel is £240 cheaper in China than the LG so fingers crossed

    I have a question about the LG 38GL950G-B monitor ...

    Running negative 3840x1600 10-bit @144Hz can it do 4:4:4 ?

    It's rumored to be only 10-bit 4:4:4 @120Hz ?

    So can it be full out 10-bit 4:4:4 @144Hz .....if it is most likely my next monitor ..... If not I'll go with more expensive ROG SWIFT PG35VQ

    Please info help

    Nope. It can't do 10 bit RGB at 144Hz. Only at 120Hz but u could possibly do 130Hz with a custom resolution. Its DP1.4's max bandwidth.

    Max Bandwidth ??

    So how does the ROG SWIFT PG35VQ do 3440x1440 10-bit 4:4:4 @144Hz and using the same Display Port 1.4a

    Does it have to do with Resolution?

    Could I downgrade the resolution from 3840x1600 to 3440x1440 would that allow me to run 10-bit 4:4:4 @144Hz ?
