    30" t0 40" display. Monitor or TV?

    Wait for the LG 48" OLED to see how it is. You could always run it at an ultra wide resolution if you want it to be smaller.

    LG 48CX

    D3D12 programs can run in full screen exclusive mode. All that bullshit happened because Activision Blizzard lied about it regarding World of Warcraft. They famously lied and said it wasn't possible to do just because they wanted to cut features and simplify the maintenance of their game. I've...

    Will we ever need more than 1 top end card from now on? Will SLI ever be seamless hardware wise?

    Actually the ZR30W from 2009 had really low input lag.

    Will we ever need more than 1 top end card from now on? Will SLI ever be seamless hardware wise?

    What kind of fucking bullshit talk is this? Resolutions have been going NOWHERE for years. Let's put this shit into perspective. I was gaming at 2560x1600 in 2009. 2009. 11 years ago. Hardware is supposed to advance. 4k should be ubiquitous by now and the only reason it isn't is because video...

    Will AMD Ever Beat Intel in Single Threaded Performance?

    Single threaded performance actually matters a lot for emulation. There are many drivers in MAME that don't run at full speed today, and emulation is often not a multi-threaded friendly application.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    We're seriously at least 10 years off from standards and near universal properly implemented HDR in PC games. It's really a moot point currently.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Not even close. For pure gaming the 48CX will probably destroy this thing. Black blacks, no vignetting bullshit, higher resolution. I really see no downsides for gaming. You can't use OLED displays for desktop monitors though.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    At $1,500 it's starting to leave ass rape territory. $1,200 would get into the "feels fair" territory. I like my monitor, but really, $1,800 was too much for a display with that vignetting problem. Should have basically been perfect with no downsides at that price with cherry picked displays...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Pretty sure that a lot of people won't even notice it because they don't look for such things because no one expects horrific problems that fundamental with 2 grand monitors.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Yeah people really underestimate how much of a difference a few inches make. There's an enormous difference between a 27" monitor and a 31.5" monitor even though it's "only" 4". It's because people don't really factor in that monitors are the diagonal distance of the two opposite sides/corners...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Maybe it's a 160hz+ thing. I run at 144hz and haven't blanked out yet.

    "Intel in jeopardy" from insiders. Much much worse than what they tell.

    There's a bigger difference in MAME than Dolphin (I think Dolphin actually uses multiple cores).

    "Intel in jeopardy" from insiders. Much much worse than what they tell.

    Intel has always been significantly faster than AMD in emulators. It's more than 5%, and to get the lowest latency you actually need pretty beefy CPUs.

    "Intel in jeopardy" from insiders. Much much worse than what they tell.

    A lot of emulators are basically single threaded, and ironically emulation of old games tends to be more demanding than contemporary games. It still matters if you're a gamer.

    "Intel in jeopardy" from insiders. Much much worse than what they tell.

    As someone who really only cares about gaming performance, I'm waiting for AMD to release a CPU that can actually beat Intel in single threaded gaming applications. Sure, Intel's a disaster right now, but AMD's been such a disaster they still haven't caught up with Intel's single thread...

    What do you like better: BFI or Gsync/Freesync?

    The long term solution is 1000hz refresh rates. Flickering sucks and motion blur sucks. It's all just pissing around until they get there. This is one of the reasons that I find things like VR so amusing. We can't even get two dimensional displays right, and people think we can do good VR.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I knew it was on every unit when I could detect it in Linus's footage. They send these guys cherry picked monitors. They're getting UNREALISTICALLY uniform displays to review. So when even Linus gets one with it, you know it's only going to get worse from there.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I fast forwarded through it, so I missed it. I retract my criticism. He did say that it's not noticeable while gaming, though, and it actually is--especially in games with bright skyboxes.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Of course he didn't mention the vignette effect caused by back light bleeding at the top and bottom of the screen. They're all useless. Edit: I was wrong. He did mention it at 17:18. I just missed it while skipping around because the video is longer than Lawrence of Arabia.

    ACER PREDATOR CG437K monitor, better than ASUS?

    Even my old ass B6 55" doesn't look that bad even if you're right on top of it as long as you're running RGB and not some compressed crap. 48" will probably look pretty decent.

    ACER PREDATOR CG437K monitor, better than ASUS?

    I see absolutely no reason to get this over the 48" LG OLED.

    LG 48CX

    Does anyone know whether it's safe to mount OLED screens in portrait/vertical mode? I'd assume that it should work fine, but I can't seem to find a lot of information about it.

    I thought you could turn ASBL off in the service menu.

    On the B6 it's obvious, and you don't even have to be that close.

    LG 48CX

    GoldenTiger and Bigmonitorguy are right. They don't look as good up close. They'd be awesome for gaming though. Like I said, arcade cabinet applications seem really compelling to me.

    If it doesn't they can enjoy not getting a sale from me. It's mandatory at this point.

    LG 48CX

    One of the 48" LGs is going in my arcade cabinet. Been looking for a suitable monitor replacement for a LONG time. It'll fit in there mounted vertically well, and I can run the games at 2160x1620 (4:3 aspect ratio).

    ASUS TUF Gaming VG32VQ: World’s 1st display with concurrent motion blur reduction & Adaptive-Sync

    Just keep in mind that ELMB is completely worthless. If you're buying it for that, don't bother.

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    Yup. It's going to be another dud. So obvious. I'm telling you, none of us are going to be happy as long as a backlight is part of the equation. Self emissive or don't even get out of bed.

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    It's a stretch to call MiniLED a new technology when it's really just an incremental improvement over existing tech.

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    This is just a last ditch effort to milk old technology before MicroLED. The whole argument against MicroLED is price, but if you're going to charge almost 4 grand for a 32" monitor, you might as well go MicroLED anyway. This industry is such a scum sucking disaster.

    ROG Swift PG32UQX - IPS 144hz 4K monitor

    https://rog.asus.com/articles/gaming-monitors/the-rog-swift-pg32uqx-delivers-the-best-4k-hdr-gaming-experience-yet/ It's looking like it's going to cost $3600. They're saying June 2020 so it'll be released some time in 2022.

    Tom Cruise says, turn off frame interpolation

    I disagree. People said that high framerate inherently looks cheap, but it was what you said: it simply revealed the low production values of the movie.

    Tom Cruise says, turn off frame interpolation

    I'm not sure what you mean. The home is actually more readily equipped to deal with it than theaters. Tons of people have 60hz-120hz+ displays at home that could actually handle high framerate. It's theater projectors that are the limiting factor.

    Tom Cruise says, turn off frame interpolation

    Ignoring the interpolation thing, I get really fucking irritated when ignorant people actually suggest that high framerate video (not interpolation but actual higher framerate) looks like a "soap opera." People are fucking idiots. I swear, there's a reason that tech is in the gutter. The dumb...

    AMD 7nm Wafer Production Set To Double In 2H 2020, 7nm Capacity At TSMC Currently Fully Booked

    I can't wait until 48 core CPUs become reasonably priced. It's going to be HUGE for compile times.
