    It's very possible it is fixed vis firmware since my display has never had an issue at 120hz with HDR enabled @1080/1440P. There has been 2 firmware pushed since I have owned it and I have never seen it.

    That's a great price. I paid _899 for mine new with a 5yr warranty from Costco and I love it. The PQ is excellent using just the recommended settings from Rtings.com review.

    If you are in the market and especially want that wonderful huge FreeSync range then I would get it.

    The only other thing you could do is look for a deal in a QF set from last year but I don't think you will find anything cheaper then the 8000 series.

    Well this display just became a HUGE DEAL ...

    nVidia is about to enable HDMI 2.1 Gsync here within the month or so via driver update.

    I have Samsung NU8000 75" been rocking for while, been playing world of warcraft classic on 4k@60hz, its mind blowing lol.

    Ive tried 1080p@120hzhz, 1440p@120hz, 4k@60hz, with hdr on and off, I like HDR off honestly.

    I've been thinking grabbing Radeon 5700XT with waterblock just try and getting rid my Radeon VII

    Means if you have a HDMI 2.1 set that you will now get VRR on your nVidia card. I have a 2080 Ti .... so my Samsung NU8000 @ 120hz @ 1440p ... I won't drop / dupe frames ... not that I did before.

    It's bullshit and they should have done this a long time ago.

    Latest driver update also fixed the issues with my gtx 1080 120hz at 1440p works fine now!

    Will a G-sync HDMI 2.1 TV ever exist? While 2.1 TVs will support VRR, I don't believe it will be the G-Sync kind. It's more like Nvidia deciding to accept other VRR technologies through the the HDMI port.

    Display Port needs to die already.

    I agree we should only have 1 standard of connector by now. IDC which just pick one and stick with it.

    Cool, I already have the C9, although there is some concern for burn-in, I think it should be okay for a couple years. I think it should be stated TVs won't have the actual G-Sync hardware. I also feel this may also be the VRR standard going forward, especially if HDMI takes over for everything.

    Make sure to lower your OLED light setting to <20 if possible and just use some common sense. There are people here who have been using their OLED TVs as monitors for 3+ years with no issues. I'm coming up on two years myself and mine's still doing awesome, but I'll be upgrading to the C9 or a C10 for sure. Just waiting for the 48" that's supposed to be released, but if not I'll get another 55".

    This G-Sync/VRR integration is very exciting news.
