It’s down to the much higher pixel density of monitor sized panels. This article has all the currently expected timelines for panel development, with monitors likely to be 3 months or so behind
What do you think they’ve locked exactly? HDR mode has mostly locked settings which is what Vincent was talking about, but SDR mode offers very high levels of flexibility, even in sRGB emulation mode, which is very rare for a monitor.
If you’re talking about HDR mode which settings do you need...
I think you’re getting this muddled up. OLED EX is the same thing as WBE, the terms are interchangeable for the newer generation of OLED panels. WBC is the older gen.
Newer WBE panels have a higher peak brightness but ONLY on the larger screen sizes, and has no difference on the 42” model...
very true. and all new brands start somewhere. i mean we've seen Gigabyte, Corsair, Asrock and Cooler Master all release monitors in recent years and none of them were in this space until recently. Even "big" monitor brands like Asus and Acer haven;t been around that long relative to Dell...
Think it’s covered on the site too. A quite well known manufacturer from China, but they’re expanding outside of that region now to US and Europe. Seems a decent screen tbh
Edit: this gives background and round up of their display range...
There’s a new review at TFTCentral for the KTC G42P5, a new 42” OLED which looks decent
They’ve got a comparison video too comparing it to the LG and Asus models
You’re probably thinking about the ASBL as opposed to the ABL. if you’re running the LG at a sensible brightness level for desktop use anywhere under 200 nits the ABL should never be needed. But the ASBL on the other hand will always kick in when it detects static content and dim the screen...
Well nothing. But what if you are using the large screen from a further viewing position for gaming, videos or consoles than you might do a normal monitor? You don’t want to have to keep leaning forward to use the buttons to change settings or switch modes
Yeah 240Hz looks like it could be amazing on OLED as I’m sure most people expected. Source of the above photos here
240Hz OLED monitor?! - Hands on with the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 BENDABLE OLED monitor
TFT Central have their news piece up covering all the official info on the Asus 42” OLED PG42UQ as well as first impressions and hands on from the Uk launch event last week
TFT Central have a review of the 42C2 coming next week apparently, although if you're a Patreon supporter it's available to read in full now. be interesting to see what they say about it, especially considering its use as a monitor
Is there any eco mode setting or energy control or else where in the OSD that once turned off, allows you to change those things? Sometimes screens will have an energy warning but then once you get past it you can change it “at your own risk” as it were. Seems strange for it to be fully locked...
It’s not so much the sample size but the different testing methodology. HUB moved to a method where they measure a larger part of the response time curve, whereas TFTC favour a more traditional tolerance, but with gamma correction of the measurements. They’ve explained both methods and their...
There shouldn’t be any issue with Xbox on the FI32U as it should support DSC and so that gives you 4k 120Hz 444 chroma anyway. I believe Gigabyte were testing that to be sure and then planned to update their spec page
It has a different mode for SDR and HDR I believe so you don’t need to worry about it. Obv if you want it on for SDR content too then you’d have to turn it on or off accordingly but I expect most people will leave it on one mode whatever they like.
