    What to expect from new AMD and Nvidia cards

    HDMI 2.1 Is that loud enough? Seriously, that's all I "expect" from the next generation. Of course I want them to be faster, but HDMI 2.1 is what I need to make this LG OLED TV shine.

    4x nVidia GeForce FX 5800 Ultras

    I would say throw one my way, but I havent had an AGP system in probably 15 years now.

    35 nits full screen brightness? OLED is stupidly bright by comparison.

    Better viewing angles than OLED?

    LG 48CX

    The CX is literally an end game display. It supports 4k120hz, HDR, VRR, Freesync, and Gsync. Not to mention a host of gamer features, and it is arguably one of the best displays for watching movies on. I honestly think it's only true downfall in terms of specs is its aggressive ABL and limited...

    Using an OLED as a PC Monitor; worth it?

    As others have said, motion is too clear, blacks are too black, color is WAYYYYYYYYY too colorful, GSYNC is way too GSYNCy, and worst of all... HDR is way too highly dynamic. Basically, the current crop of LG OLED TVs are too good to even consider using as a "lowly" PC monitor. Joking aside, as...

    I've been working from home now for several months, and for about half of that time, I've had my CX 55. It's been serving dual-duty, both as my primary screen for my PC and game consoles, but also as my secondary screen for my work laptop. I'm a DBA for work, and I find the OLED screen just fine...

    I have found this to be blinding in some scenarios, especially with HDR content. Not nearly as blinding as my Q90R @ 100% brightness, but still, very bright. Seriously the 9 and X series of LG OLED TVs get deceptively bright in certain scenarios.

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    Same. It's very different from Doom 2016. However, if you get used to the controls and gameplay mechanics, it's a ton of fun. Just know that there's a much steeper learning curve than Doom 2016.

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    I get asked this a lot. Can I afford a 2080 Ti? Yes. Does the 2080 Ti have HDMI 2.1? No. Was I able to afford a 2080 Ti when I bought the 2070 Super? No. It's all about value. Do I think the 2080 Ti is worth the insane asking price for a mere 30-40% performance jump over the 2070 Super? No...

    What's y'all's read on the 12-pin PCIe rumor surrounding the 3080ti?

    Literally zero chance a GPU with a new power connector will require a brand new PSU. That would be a disaster for Nvidia sales-wise. The GPUs will have an adapter bundled with it if true.

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    Recently bought an LG CX 55 OLED TV. While I love my 2070 Super, I need something with some serious power to drive this crazy TV/monitor. Whoever releases an HDMI 2.1 GPU first... AMD or Nvidia... will get my money. Day 1 purchase. Lets go!!!

    Guy damages rare collectible graphics card :(

    Had an FX 5900. Thing was terrible. My previous Geforce 4 Ti 4200 was faster in several titles. That being said, if you're a collector of GPUs, the FX 5800 is gold. It was Nvidia at its absolute worst and is an extreme rarity.

    GPU - diminishing returns reached

    This. The next revolution isn't happening in our GPUs. It's happening in our displays. If you haven't gamed on 4k120hz or 1440p+120hz+VRR+HDR on an OLED screen... Seriously, it's an incredible experience.

    If this TV was capable of 4k120+HDR over HDMI 2.0b, I'd be using that. Since it isn't, I'll be waiting with baited breath for the HDMI 2.1 video cards. As good as HDR 120hz looks, I ain't even mad.

    Samsung Odyssey: 49" 5120x1440, 240 Hz, HDR1000

    Somehow I managed to leave that off my list. Yes indeed. Real. Eye-watering. Glorious. Per-pixel. HDR. If you haven't seen HDR on an OLED TV, you have no idea what you're missing. It's breathtaking.

    Just turned on and tuned Doom Eternal for HDR on my CX 55 for the first time and HOLY BEJEBUS I had to turn down the OLED Light in order to get this to where I want it. At 2560x1440 120hz HDR, it's just... glorious.

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    Don't get me wrong. The G7 looks like a fantastic monitor for gaming. In fact, if I hadn't already splurged for an LG CX 55, I would heavily consider it (except for that curve... ew). Also, the strength of OLED's pixel response is also sort of a weakness; at low frame rates, the picture...

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    There is only one monitor tech that can come close to matching CRT for motion clarity, and that's OLED. LCD monitors still have pixel rise/fall times, even at 240hz.

    Samsung Odyssey: 49" 5120x1440, 240 Hz, HDR1000

    I personally believe that the CX 48 is one of the best "monitors" on the market. It does HDMI 2.1, 4k @ 120hz, OLED, Freesync, Gsync, and a host of other technologies. It's an incredible product.

    Samsung Odyssey: 49" 5120x1440, 240 Hz, HDR1000

    12-bit is only really relevant if you have around 10000-nits of brightness. Otherwise, it's extremely difficult to distinguish against that many colors. The fact that the CX doesn't have 12-bit color capabilities @ 4k/120 4:4:4 is irrelevant; it's a 10-bit panel. People really need to stop with...

    Part of the reason I bought a 2 year warranty from Best Buy is because of this. I thought about buying the 5-year warranty, but my tastes change so frequently that I will more than likely have moved on to something better by then. If I can get 2 years worth of use out of this, I will be happy...

    Last night, I did a comparison between my CX and Q90R using some high contrast videos on youtube. The Q90R gets blindingly bright, but if you set the brightness to equal between the CX and Q90R, the CX stomps all over the Q90R. While I think the FALD implementation on the Q90R is still one of...

    2560x1440 But at that res, you can also do RGB or 4:4:4 and 10-bit HDR and 120hz.

    You failed to mention that IPS is significantly worse in everything else. Seriously, if that's the worst thing about PQ for OLED tech, it's a non-issue in my book.

    Honestly, the only thing I could ask for on these displays is a DisplayPort. Beyond that, I'm super content with my CX 55.

    Do what I did. Buy a Samsung NU 8000, get bored. Buy a Samsung Q90r, get bored. Buy an LG CX. We'll see how long I'm happy with the CX.

    If a game can push 4k120, I will gladly run the game at Native 4k. If it can't, as you said, 1440p still looks great on the CX, so it's not that much of a downgrade. It will be a case-by-case basis.

    This is going to sound weird, but I think one of the best showcases of this display is Euro Truck Simulator and American Truck Simulator. The constant motion of things wizzing past you really showcases the motion clarity that this TV/monitor produces. Even without BFI, everything is crystal...

    There is literally 2 things I want LG to (try and) address in the future with their OLED displays. 1. Reduce Burn-in risk (further) 2. Increase refresh rate. Would love to see an OLED-like display in the future that can do 240hz.

    Huh? I've never once looked at my CX 55 and thought "Hmmmmm... I wish this display was higher resolution with more pixel density." What you're describing is insane. There's a reason everyone swears by this display: quality of pixels, not quantity. That is to say, the colors, vibrancy, contrast...

    I never noticed it until it was pointed out here. Completely non-issue for me. Every display is going to display some sort of off-angle viewing artifact, and I guess this just happens to be LG's OLED tech. If this is a deal breaker for anyone, please let me know which display out there offers...

    Yea, I haven't noticed any color shift on my CX 55. It doesn't matter what angle you look at it from, the colors are beautiful.

    That's the idea... but my 2070 Super just isn't up to the task @ 4k120. However, I knew that going into this, with the plan to get a high-end HDMI 2.1 GPU when it's released. For now, I'm actually really happy with the way 1440p looks on this TV. It's definitely not perfect, but I can live with...

    Agreed. Went from a 144hz Gsync monitor to 120hz OLED, and the difference in motion is almost imperceptible. The strength of OLED is its near instant pixel response, so even though you see less frames than a 144/165hz monitor, the frames are clearer and cleaner than a comparable LCD. The only...

    The magic of OLED is if you increase brightness on the screen, it just increases contrast and peak brightness. So yes... old games, new games, literally every game looks better on this screen.

    As MistaSparkful said, these images don't do the picture quality justice. Seeing super bright pixels next to super dark pixels is an experience. It's even better in motion because, unlike an LCD, there's not "smear" or overshoot usually associated with high refresh rate monitors. It's just...
