    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    Thanks for your impressions MistaSparkul, very helpful for would be shoppers. I was wondering how you measured peak brightness because if you have a colorimeter that you used to do that you could use some open source software to do grayscale tracking and SDR color / gamut checks for the SDR in...

    Is medium to high end Pc gaming becoming too niche ?

    I’d say we have crossed the point where you can’t generally get better settings on new / recent PC ports of console first games. A lot of recent games with PC ports like God of War have meaningfully better settings, frame rate, RT options, FOV adjustments and more that really let you make the...

    Corsair 45WQHD240 ultrawide 45” 1440p 240Hz OLED with LG panel

    Since the brightness variation is not related to a permanent feature of the backlight, it should change over time. LG TVs do a pixel refresh / wear leveling after a certain number of run in hours which changes uniformity, not sure if the monitor lets you run this manually after a period of time?

    The VR Heat is turning up a couple more degrees as a new contender sets to enter the hardware ring

    I did a search price and saw “price remains a mystery”. Not sure how they think they will get much traction without naming a target price range (even if it’s broad).

    Is medium to high end Pc gaming becoming too niche ?

    I assume there’s more margin in the higher end cards but still it’s pretty surprising to me that there’s so little innovation trying to get new card sales from amd and nvidia in the “old midrange” price bracket of around $300. The last cards that really struck me as being great at the price was...

    27" 240hz OLED Monitor!!! (but there's a catch...)

    I imagine on something like a g-sync OLED at 240hz+ a GPU driven rolling black bar (to reduce sample-and-hold blur) that is frame rate invariant in speed and compensates for perceptual brightness variation with frame rate would look close to perfect. Are you listening Nvidia and Amd? Chance to...

    Best overall Monitor that swivels to portrait mode, but is just for general web surfing, etc

    32” are a challenge to swivel. I have a vesa mounting arm that allows it but due to the height it requires extreme gymnastics and a trip behind my desk to unplug everything. I don’t use my 32” in portrait mode as a daily thing. I would check desk clearance height and measure etc carefully if you...

    43inch TV/Monitor 4k people...what scaling do you use?

    I have switched from 100% to 125% because of the distance I sit at and to get a little more text AA which I personally like. I did run at 100% for a long time and that was fine too.

    The elusive logic of multi-display ordering

    You can set whatever monitor you want to be primary and drag the. left and right to correct where windows thinks they are relative to each other. As to the built in algorithm that tries to guess their order and position I have no idea.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    The truth is Nvidia has done some estimation of what they think they can sell the 4000 series cards for in the short term, given the quantities they have on hand and will produce in the next few months and how these cards compare to the 3000 series' current street pricing. After that time, AMD...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Interesting- the C in DSC does stand for compression so I wonder with enough of a leap over native bandwidth over DSC you can see the compression artifacts in text. I will have to play with this when I get home.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Sounds like you are dropping to one of the YUV modes other than 4:4:4 if the text looks less clear. The NVCP custom display mode settings screen is quite buggy and I had it setting YCbCr 4:2:0 when messing around with modes that aren’t really possible.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    That’s a good question, haven’t read much about AMD stock situation. I do know that Nvidia makes and sells a LOT more GPUs and therefore has a much larger inventory in general, $-wise.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    It’s not a bad business strategy to help clear out all the 3080 stock before releasing a replacement but I do hope they do and bring that performance tier available to everyone who skipped that tier last gen. I will stick with my msrp 3080 most likely.

    A good explanation of VESA's new ClearMR motion clarity standard

    I applaud even an effort to standardize measurement of motion clarity. Even if it falls short (and the article does cover a reasonable amount about what’s measured) I think most monitors with poor motion response will leave this measurement off. So monitors with high motion clarity on say the...
