    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Yeah game developers just need to learn to cap their framerates during loading screens. For me the worst VRR flicker issues have been when a game is at the transition between LFC and VRR, usually 48 fps/Hz on Freesync screens. That can be annoying if it fluctuates right in that area. With some...

    LG UltraWide 40WP95C-W 39.7" 21:9 Curved FreeSync 5K2K (5120 x 2160) HDR IPS @ 72 Hz

    I feel you are handwaving ultrawide issues as "just run at 16:9". If I buy an ultrawide or super ultrawide display then I sure as hell would like to run every game I own utilizing its full capabilities and it should not need patching them. In my experience that's not the reality though. I have...

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

    I see. Seems similar to the ASUS PG278Q vs QR update from the past where nobody could figure out what the difference was.

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

    Man they really working hard to make this lineup as confusing as possible. I wonder if this model is basically just a replacement for the PG32UQ with maybe a slightly different controller or something. Here's ASUS's website page...

    LG UltraWide 40WP95C-W 39.7" 21:9 Curved FreeSync 5K2K (5120 x 2160) HDR IPS @ 72 Hz

    I don't disagree with that. We are just not there yet and probably won't be for several years with the glacial pace of the display industry. I would even take a LCD capable of 120+ Hz with a mini-LED backlight.

    LG UltraWide 40WP95C-W 39.7" 21:9 Curved FreeSync 5K2K (5120 x 2160) HDR IPS @ 72 Hz

    I have explained in other posts why I feel dual monitors are better than these 5K2K monitors. It has nothing to do with 21:9 itself but that the 5K2K displays are overpriced for what they are. For the same money you can get a better spec 4K 16:9 display and a side monitor with more usable...

    LG UltraWide 40WP95C-W 39.7" 21:9 Curved FreeSync 5K2K (5120 x 2160) HDR IPS @ 72 Hz

    If it works for you, great. For me 5120x1440 superultrawide with 100% scaling is enough for running 3 windows comfortably side by side. 5120x2160 would require DPI scaling which reduces the effective desktop space to probably something closer to 3440x1440 which for me is just not enough. Look...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I'm in the same boat as I wanted more desktop space than my CX 48" scaled to 125% can give and it got a bit unwieldy with multiple virtual desktops and is not well suited for multimonitor setups. I find that for me 100% scaled 2x 1440p is enough space but would prefer better text sharpeness for...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I have a CX 48" and it's definitely there for 100% scaling on Windows. MacOS text rendering is different and has no real problems in this regard. On Windows using DPI scaling and adjusting RGB contrast with Better Cleartype Tuner does a good job for mitigating it.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Most BIOS will pick integrated GPU outputs -> discrete GPU HDMI -> discrete GPU DisplayPort as the input order to use but this might be selectable on some boards. So if you have other displays connected it might try to display it on one of those.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Never had that issue with my CX 48". BIOS showed up just fine even if its resolution was wonky. If you mean it takes longer to start up and gets past the BIOS screen then just keep hitting whatever key gets you to BIOS (F2 or Del usually) and it should work. I'm using a Gigabyte X570 mITX board...

    Sony Inzone Gaming Monitors

    Awful looking stand design, no sRGB mode and otherwise kind of middle of the pack performance. This will sell only because the 4K 120+ Hz market is pretty garbage. It is nice to see something besides the awful 8-16 zone edge lit tho. Even though 96 zones is crap, it's at least less crap.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Yeah looking at the specs on Samsung's website they seem largely the same including HDMI 2.1. With only a $200 price difference maybe this is just a way for them to use panels or controllers that could not handle 240 Hz? If the G7 is basically the same thing but without the scanline issues then...

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

    Agree it's overpriced and probably has something like 16 dimming zones like the GP950. This will be probably something like 1500 euros here in Finland and that's absurd. At about 1000 I'd consider it as it otherwise ticks a lot of my boxes. We just can't get a break with these 32" 4K high...

    So what's the difference between G8 and Neo G7? 240 vs 165 Hz and G7 has lower peak brightness?

    LG UltraGear 48GQ900 48" 138Hz OLED

    Too little too late. Had this come out around the same time as the CX/C1 it would have been nice but now, why would you buy this over the 42" C2?

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Yeah I really don't get why they went for 240 Hz on these and then don't support something in between like 144 Hz, 165 Hz etc. that might be free of these issues.

    LG UltraWide 40WP95C-W 39.7" 21:9 Curved FreeSync 5K2K (5120 x 2160) HDR IPS @ 72 Hz

    A 40" 5120x2160 screen is effectively an ultrawide version of a 32" 4K 16:9 and you don't gain a huge amount of extra desktop space when you want to apply some DPI scaling to make text and UI easier to read. With a 32" 4K 16:9 plus a side monitor you are likely to have more usable desktop space...

    LG UltraWide 40WP95C-W 39.7" 21:9 Curved FreeSync 5K2K (5120 x 2160) HDR IPS @ 72 Hz

    In my experience there is no issue running MacOS at odd scaling settings as long as you have 4K+ resolution. For anything less unless it's a laptop display there's just no point to using scaling in the first case. To explain the issue to others, MacOS scaling works like this. For these numbers...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Check if you have DSR factors enabled. It can block the custom res feature. Seems to me the best option would be to run at 120 Hz on the desktop and use 240 Hz in gaming as you are unlikely to notice the scanline issue. Wonder what causes it though...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Sharpness 56 was to me "off" on my Samsung CRG9 but they may have changed it. It was very weird. I think the best way to figure this out is different colored small text sizes on various backgrounds as that was when I noticed that 60 had a bit of sharpening artifacts on the edges of text where it...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    OLED has incredibly low pixel response times but a good chunk higher input lag than the fastest "gaming" monitors these days, which have almost negligible input lag. While the TN would have more motion blur it might "feel" more responsive. But OLED input lag is still less than 1 frame at both...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Vega how do you feel about the curvature on this thing? I imagine it could work favorably if you had two of these but as one display it does look weird. I've seen my friend's G7 and wasn't too bothered about it but still thought it was a bit weird.

    OLED Eye Fatigue

    I've used the LG CX 48" OLED TV as my main desktop monitor for two years without experiencing eye fatigue. But these are very personal things. I would expect CRTs to be more likely to cause eye fatigue because they are not as pin sharp as LCDs. For me CRTs are fine as long as the refresh rate is...

    You don't. It is done automatically after x hours of cumulative use on the LG OLEDs when the display is turned OFF as long as it's connected to power. It is invisible to the user. While you can run it manually, I haven't done so during the two years owning the LG CX 48" and using it as a desktop...

    As it seems there will never be a 16:10 with any gaming options I finally ordered a XG321UG to replace the 30" Dells

    I'd just claim some desktop space by autohiding your taskbar. I feel even with scaling 3840x2160 screens tend to have enough desktop space and it's better to add more with external displays. I do wish there were more non-16:9 options for side monitors though.

    LG Announces 16:18 monitor (28MQ780)

    Please post a pic of your setup! I'm considering a 32" 4K 16:9 + one of these for programming as well but am unsure if I want to go with that or just dual 32". The LG DualUp is basically two 21.5" 1440p displays stacked and that's pretty cool but no high refresh rate which can be a bit jarring...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    This is my experience as well. DLSS 1.x games are pretty few now and several formerly DLSS 1.x games have upgraded to DLSS 2.x. DLSS works better the higher your native resolution. Part of this is because the scale factors are shifted. With a 4K display DLSS performance mode is upscaling from...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I like having options. If I were playing for example multiplayer shooters, running at 1080p 240 fps would be possible with integer scaling. Even some image quality loss from 1440p would not be particularly noticeable if you are playing very fast paced games or you could try to combat it with...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    I think of it as headroom. Most games I play can't run at 4K 120 Hz even but having a display capable of that means that I could run games at lower res or some less demanding games at those framerates. I wouldn't buy this just for 4K 240 Hz but for the whole package.

    High framerate and OLED

    These are 10-bit panels so that's not it. I think it's a limitation of this particular panel or its control hardware where it just can't go higher without redesigning something, which is probably not in the budget for "make a gaming display out of this TV".

    High framerate and OLED

    They can't make a specification nobody can actually build. If they say "HDMI 2.2 should be capable of 16K resolution at 500 Hz!" then to make HDMI controllers that can match that specs would be impossible. So these specs are based on what is feasible and what is required for displays in the...

    Having used the LG CX 48" for 2 years as a desktop monitor, I recently moved and decided the 48" was the right size for a living room TV and put it there. I want something smaller for desktop use as having the CX mounted on a floorstand was not the most practical setup. For me a single 4K...

    High framerate and OLED

    It's not the input interface that is the issue. It's the controller driving the panel as well as the panel capabilities. LG 48GQ900 is basically the "gaming monitor" version of their CX/C1/C2 48" model. It tops out at 138 Hz which is a weird refresh rate to cap at. So there is probably some...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Neo G9 probably sold really well. But Samsung probably also had a lot RMAs to deal with. Reading Reddit's display related subreddits there's quite a bit of "this seems expensive because of the AW QD-OLED" talk. Hard to disagree with that. I would not be surprised if the price of these comes...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    It seems both LG and Samsung OLEDs have pretty similar processing lag. I fully expect the MSI/Samsung will perform similarly. The outlier here is the LG 32EP950 that uses the JOLED panel. While it has a bit more processing lag than many LCDs, it's still under 1ms. I don't know what the deal...
