    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    This exact same thing happens on the Gigabyte FV43U! IIRC it was reported to FV43U thread here hon hardforum, and I also recall seeing it in FV43U user reviews on either newegg or amazon. Gigabyte firmware bug, Gigabyte hardware bug, or a panel bug (if both are made by the same panel...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Is G-sync set to both windowed and fullscreen? If so, set G-sync to fullscreen only. If it's not that, what comes to mind is: I launched a game on my primary QHD (144Hz) monitor, a game that likes to determine what refresh rate is used, causing the secondary (60Hz) monitor to go blank for a...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I don't have a detailed test chart handy from a review, but there is no way in hell its slowest rise from black is 7ms. That would be less than half the 32" VA world record set by the G7. (assuming balanced OD set on both) Edit: For comparison's sake: The average is very quick indeed for a...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    It's very obvious that in order to make them this size, the FV43U and its older 43" brethren are big piles of compromise, where many other aspects aren't as good as smaller alternatives in exchange for being large and 4K. If it's so hard for manufacturers to make panels that big and to drive all...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    Essentially, because we can't buy a 32" or 35" CRT. With CRTs, we used to be able to use whatever resolution we needed to for decent fps no problem. This whole idea is an attempt to get some of that back, except on an LCD the size of the image has to change as resolution changes to keep 1:1...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    The high ~138 pixel density of 4k at 32" would make it impossible to do what I'm hoping to achieve 'cause anything sub native would look very small on that with no upscaling. From experience with a 30" 2560x1600 montior I know I found 102 PPI too high a pixel density when playing games at lower...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    Integer scaling on a 32" looks really bad because it's just not enough pixels, you lose all sense of detail. It's not really an option, imo. At standard viewing distance that pixel count is meant for 24". With 1440p you are limited, yes but QHD is low enough that I can get everything to run very...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    I was testing in Metro Exodus recently, and my 2080 Super just about pushes enough fps to stay above 75 at all times (sometimes reaching 100). 80+ is where a shooter starts to feel snappy to me (100+ ideally), but I'm talking without RTX enabled. With RTX enabled, even if I enable DLSS as well...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    Thanks. I asked you because: I used to have a great 30" monitor, but after ~12 years it gave up the ghost. I then had to settle for the smaller 27" size just to have a g-sync module and a fast IPS panel with no obvious flaws. I wanted a 32" but there just weren't any good options, and honestly...

    Helpful video I found to get your black levels correct. To check for black crush, move your head to the side away from column 17, then move it in front of column 17. Here's a good example of really bad black crush on a different monitor:

    I've never had a monitor that didn't allow 1:1 for lower than native resolutions, as long as the nv drivers were set to do scaling by GPU along with the "No scaling" option selected. When I need more fps, I tend run lower res 1:1 and move the monitor closer. Asus PG279QE currently. Displays...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Well, it turned out to be true. After testing 1280x800 in-game I never used it again. Yes a blurry image looks bad but as it turns out, so does making every pixel a 2x2 block. With 1280x800 of those on a 30" panel way too much detail was lost. Go native, 1:1 or go outside. It might be ok for...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    It went right by the side of my face. Close call. With the FV43U's 10kg on it, you'd have to tighten the spring more to keep it suspended. Which means the arm swings up that much faster when you remove the monitor. Correction: that's 2.5" from the edge of the desk to the back of the monitor...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    My 27" can get a little beyond the desk even. The size of the FV43U combined with the location of its VESA mountpoints (slightly above center) mean your limit would be about 2.5 inches toward you from the edge of the desk because you have to clear the lower half of the mount arm itself. You're...

    I have a Newstar Neomount NM-D775BLACK, a gas sprung articulated arm. Two, even. The manufacturer told me in an email that the FV43U should be fine on it, but I would recommend NM-D775BLACKPLUS, which is the same but with a stronger tilt joint to make sure it doesn't sag on you. They created it...

    Thank you for that valuable contribution about the FV43U, the topic of this thread. It's only the 10th OLED promotion post you've made in it.

    Heh. Not necessarily a bad thing though to not generate pages if there's nothing new to add for a while. The lag: it's a weird one, I really hope it's firmware fixed / fixable. Filming the FV43U and another monitor next to it in clone mode might work to investigate by lookig at lag differences...

    I get that the FV43U somewhat (but not really) competes with TVs because of its size, but there's probably over a hundred OLED vs LCD posts in this thread by now. Is that really what y'all want or should that discussion henceforth be confined to a seperate forum thread? Edit: search shows there...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    The price of an FV43U is close enough to the better 32" models that the fact that it's 4k is just a bonus even if you don't have a 3000-series GPU and have to run games at 1440p. If you disable upscaling you'd have practically the same result in terms of size (a touch smaller) as on the 32"...

    My previous LCD monitor had plenty of permanent burn-in. Yes, actually factually permanent, believe me: I tried everything. It only started from about 2/3rd of its ~13 year lifespan, but this is LCD we're talking about. OLEDs are much more susceptible to it, so I already know how that would end...

    That's why I typically disable everything power management related in everything, including the OS. No sleep, hibernation, suspend, fast boot (honorable mention), none of that. These things always break something.

    The question wasn't really if the FV43U is worth buying, but: should he ask for a replacement FV43U in hopes of getting better uniformity. Given that review I'd say it's probably not worth the hassle as it's inherent to the panel used in combination with how it's lit. If it's a problem in...

    We'll see I suppose, but I like the confidence. :) I'm starting to consider using one monitor for everything in the OS, one that's suited most to text like 32" 4K IPS (or even my current 27" 1440p IPS to start with), on a gas sprung articulated arm which I already have, and FV34U or FO48U...

    I appreciate the suggestion though. There's also the issue of needing a 3000-series GPU for HDMI 2.1 unless an oled is classified as a monitor rather than a TV and has DP making it magically extremely expensive. I'm rockin' a 2080 Super. Other than HDMI 2.1 there'd be no real need to replace it...

    Around 2007 after my first few paychecks at my first proper "career" job I rewarded myself with a 30" 2560x1600 IPS monitor. One of, if not the first 30" panel on the market. Being HP's flagship monitor at the time, it was quality and it took until 1-2 years ago when I finally jumped on the...

    Yeah.. and when the animated line moves down to the row just 1 pixel above the text, the top pixel row of the text lights up. The moving line keeps doing that to every row below. Very odd. How do I run that test on my Asus?
