    I use the same eyes for movies and games... I guess it is the same for you. This is even more important for games than movies: you generally do not want to move your neck around to compensate for the blurriness near the sides of the screen (which is due to the decreased resolution in the eyes...

    Actually, THX recommended viewing angle is 40 degree, not 45-50. For 48", that means a viewing distance of ~4.8'. Note that THX based their recommendation on the field of view of the human eye, for which the resolution...

    About time! Dell also launched an OLED monitor a few years ago but was cancelled due to image quality concerns.

    It is possible that D-Nice's AWP does not work for you eyes as it was determined based on his own perception. So you should use whatever WP that looks better to you. If you have time to spare, some pros on AVS have suggested 0.3163x 0.3345y (plasma-ish) and 0.312x 0.3356y. While the i1...

    While It is correct that the 77 and 48 are manufactured on the same panel, D-Nice recommends to also apply his AWP on the 48" I only have one AWP.... x0.309 y0.3290. It works on all...

    I never used HCFR and makes sense to follow the recommendation of the thread. Large variation between successive points is known to create issues such as banding so important to run test patterns to validate the results with your eyes. Also note that the i1 is likely inaccurate below 5% and may...

    Yes, HCFR should be fine but you will need a pattern generator... don't think that HCFR can "talk" to LG internal pattern generator (which is a great feature BTW) 109% white method is only recommended when you perform an elaborate calibration (which does not seem to be your intention). More...

    LG 48CX

    Yes, the forum is a mess and a rabbit hole. I agree that AutoCal is problematic (1D Lut creates artifcat and 3D Lut may be overly simplistic) My 48CX greatly benefited from a manual calibration since the factory calibration was poorly done. This varies by unit. So maybe you can perform a...

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    I have had my 3080 Strix for a month... very good card but the additional performance over my former 2080 Ti is a bit disappointing The biggest advantage is the support of HDMI 2.1, which allows 120FPS at 4K. The upcoming 3080 Ti will not be much faster (10%?) so I guess it is what it is...

    What happened to AMD's 'Big Supply'?

    In the real world where companies have shareholders, it generally does not make much sense to stock pile inventory and defer income. Also, this would prevent the minority who have secured a card to enjoy them. Low supply is better than no supply. Folks complain like AMD/NVIDIA went into...

    LG 48CX: Ideal viewing distance for gaming and work, helpful software (tiling) and other helpful info

    THX recommends 4.8ft as an optimal distance from a 48". This provides a viewing angle of 40 degrees. For PC use, I prefer 4.0ft which provides a viewing angle of 45 degrees. Eye sight loses definition beyond 45 degrees.. so at 3Ft (viewing angle of 60 degrees), it means that your head/neck will...

    No issue so far at 4K 120hz 4:4:4 using the following combination on my 3080 and 48CX setup 1) IBRA 2.1 HDMI 10ft Cable 2) Monoprice 48Gbps HDMI 3ft extention

    3080 Ti speculation

    The additional memory is nice but this card would perform between the 3080 and 3090... so a 3080 Ti would presumably be 5-10% faster than a 3080... not very compelling. Also, I have not seen any description of the size... if the 3080 Ti is as huge as the 3090 then whatever... And do not get me...

    Not sure that LG will provide a band-aid solution with a firmware update. But I think that this can be partially mitigated by manually calibrating the monitor... someone may provide settings that will partially mitigate this (e.g. something that works well at 90hz). It is disappointing that VRR...

    What about building my own 3080 using spare parts from Radio Shack, older video cards and my dying washing machine? Would still be smaller than the 3090... Totally not desperate here! ;)

    While doing 3 sec refresh intervalls on NewEgg Canada, the Asus TUF shown up in stock... but was never able to add to my cart... I mean the card was for sale for no more than 3 DAMN SECONDS t and was unable to buy it... this is crazy and concludes my quest for a 3080 until things settle down.

    While firmware 3.11.25 has been reported to work on the CX48, it may not be fully compatible according to LG tech support. I own a CX48 and will wait for an official firmware (do not yet own a 3080 so no big deal for now).

    Ok, just wall mounted my new 48CX... This thing is perfect for seating distance of 4' (which is a bit shorter than the recommended distance of 4.8' by THX) Happy to report that my unit passed all tests with flying colors: no dead pixels and no noticeable uniformity issue (banding, vignetting...

    Anyone think the 3080 supply availability might be tied to the Big Navi release?

    Conspiracy theory about a company that benefits from NOT selling his product OR Low volume due to poor yields in the context of high-end manufacturing process with a new partner + High demand :rolleyes:

    Are we headed back to 1 year GPU process cycles?

    I would think that the performance improvement from 8nm to 7nm would be relatively small for a given architecture... so that you be a minor refresh. However, being able to actually buy the product would be a major improvement.

    Canadian here who will finally get his new 48" CX tomorrow... This will replace a 55" LG OLED B7 which was too large (seating distance of 4') and does not support 120HZ and GSYNC. I will wall mount it assuming it meets my expectation (uniformity, tinting, dead pixels, etc.). Having secured a...

    What is 8k gaming?

    May I ask you to elaborate on what are the advantages of 8K over 4K other than higher pixel density (and marketing)? Here are some disadvantages: - LG found that brightness was lower on 8K vs 4K and they explored using top emission for their 8K OLED (they finally found a workaround with their...

    What is 8k gaming?

    Why would 8K make any sense for normal use (e.g. excluding military and medical uses) given that the human can only distinguish pixels of a 40" 4K monitor from 2.3ft??

    A rusty penny, maybe.

    Who is buying a 3090?

    For those planning to buy a 3090, what is the theoretical MSRP you would be willing to pay assuming that it is 20% faster than the 3080 (which has a MSRP of $700)? For example, would you still be in if it was $2,000 or $2,500 or $3,000?

    Who is buying a 3090?

    My mind is set on a 3080 20GB . Pretty sure that the 3080 Ti will not be released this year and I want a nice rig for the winter... pretty cold in Montreal....
