Really, the problems with VRR on the LG OLEDs have more or less led me to write them off. I really want to see what Sony does with the Sony x900h.

I suspect that it's all going to be a mess for a few months to a year. You know how these companies are. They can't get anything right. HDMI 2.1 will probably be fucked on launch.
What problems are you speaking of? I have a 2070 Super, and GSYNC on my CX has been awesome.

Planning on a 3080 most likely a FE. I'll be using my beloved Acer Predator XB2 27" G-Sync 1080 @ 240 Hz.

I currently have an Acer X34P 3440 x 1440 @ 120Hz and I plan to get an RTX 3080. Hopefully I'll be able set DXR to Ultra quality with DLSS while keeping the frame rates above 100+ FPS.

Currently a 1440p @165Hz g-sync monitor.
Once I upgrade my GPU, next year's upgrade will be the monitor, which I'm aiming for 4k @ 144Hz

I'm a little disappointed that the new GPU will not come with Display port 2.0
Though, there's no any upcoming monitor with DP2.0 either

LG G9 OLED here, Will see what AMD comes out with. the 3080 with 10GB has to little video memory for my liking, but the 3090 is too much of a price increase (100%) for too little additional performance increase. (20%)

Still debating what to get, will probably get the 3090 over the 3080. My display is a Acer X27 4k/120hz display.

I’ll be grabbing a 3080 to run my current LG OLED CX 48inch. I haven’t noticed and of the black crush people have been taking about. Probably because the black floor on this display even with black crush is going to be better then 99% of the blacks on everything else out there. Also oled @120hz is so smooth I can’t even explain how smooth it is.

My previous display was a 1440p/144hz GSYNC display, and I swear the CX 55 OLED is smoother and more responsive, even at "only" 120hz. Image quality is just.... insane. It's very difficult to explain to people with 240hz displays that, even though I have used a 240hz display, I would take the CX 55 over one in a heartbeat because of how clear and responsive the picture is.

Once you go high-refresh OLED, it's hard to use anything else.

Couldn't agree more. Playing Doom (2017) at 4k120 is a helluva experience, even without HDR

Probably because it makes no sense. Much like the people who swore they were seeing RTX features in BFV when it wasn't even patched in yet.

Ok man, but there's an army of OLED users that agree with me. OLED tech is the real deal.

Received mine last week. I’ve been checking everyday for months to see when it would drop, and randomly checked Amazon last weekend. They had a few in stock so I couldn’t hit that checkout button fast enough, and within an hour they were out of stock again. Now amazon says no stock until Oct. this is Amanzon.ca though. 4K is crazy sharp, but almost too sharp. Miss my PG279Q 😥 My 2nd choice was the Viewsonic XG270QG but I couldn’t find it in stock anywhere.



I use to have the PG279Q, but did it only do 4:2:2? I never honestly checked but thought the monitor was pretty amazing. One of the best 144hz 1440P monitors that even today places like rtings still highly recommends. I know it didn’t have the newer displayport etc, and a 6bit panel but it looked ok, but I’m not a monitor expert.
I ordered mine from B&H Photo. I don't know when it will get here. If I like it I will probably order more to get a matching set. Right now I am running 3x LG 27UK650-W and an Asus VG27AQ. It bothers me so much that the Asus is 1440p.

It makes a lot of sense. The pixel response on OLED's is less than 1ms across much of the testing spectrum. With the slowest transitions 4ms or less. At any given refresh rate, its going to look a lot better and feel snappier than an IPS at the same refresh. And even IPS at higher refresh rates.

TN is an interesting case. If you want the absolutely best motion clarity. technically, a very good TN panel (one with the lowest response times) can maintain more clarity under motion, at 240hz refresh. Than a 120hz refresh OLED display.

However, every single other aspect of the image and panel quality are DRAMATICALLY worse. So even though a very specific motion blur test will show that TN retaining more clarity: The OLED is going to look and "feel" better. A skilled gamer in a very fast game my be able to post better average scores, on a 240hz tn panel. But it would be an interesting comparison. I would posit that the immaculate contrast from the OLED would help with scores, as well. Nearlly all monitor reviews on RTings mention that they have trouble showing darker and lower contrast colors accurately. Even after calibration.

I will wait for others to use it for a few months to see realistic real world performance at 4K 60Hz. Only and only until then would I even entertain getting the 3080 to drive my LG 43" 4K moniyor. Hype is nothing like real world use.

This is my first 4K monitor, so it’s taking some getting use to. 4K almost seems so sharp it’s a tad blurry, I’ve been playing wildlands and I literally can’t see pixels. Not that that’s a bad thing but I think I prefer 1440p at 27”. Anyways, I’m looking forward to the 3080 since the 2080S I’ve borrowed off a buddy is having a hard time running wildlands at 4K, maxed out, resolution scalling off.

Yeah I read more after that guy's post and it sounds like it's more like the CRTs of old. I also looked up those contrast problems and they don't seem to have an idea how to fix it so there are still a few kinks to work out apparently. Plus I don't want a 50"+ monitor, I want something around 30 for my desk.

I plan to use a 3090 with the MSI 5k2k monitor. I have the monitor, just need the card :)

Depending on when I get the card, it'll either be hooked up to my current Acer Predator X27 or an LG OLED 48CX.

Either the PG279Q or OLED55B9PUA (currently own both). Though I would really like a desktop ultra wide (G9 Odyssey)?

Acer 27” XF270HUA here. 1440p 144hz IPS Freesync panel. Don’t plan on going 4K anytime soon. I’d want around a 32” 120hz min on a 4k monitor and definitely don’t want another TN panel. Since I just bought 2 of these last year I’ll stay where I’m at for awhile.

Occasionally I connect to my 75” Sony 900F TV but not often enough. It can do 1440p@120hz never tried above that though. Will probably never grab an OLED due to paranoia. Wouldn’t work out in my household.

Probably gonna grab a 3070 but will wait and see how it compares to the 3080.

LG OLED CX - still debating between 48" and 55"
Me 2. Been on my Samsung JS9000 for almost 5 years. I still love it but tired of 60 FPS and screen tearing with Vsync on. Want to go 55" cx but then, the Pixel density on the 48 I know is better. Still my JS9000 is 48" and it feels small now haha. decisions decisions

3080 for me I believe... 3090 value proposition seems low given price vs. advantages, and the two functional differences (nvlink and 24Gb) are unlikely to be used by me. I will stick with my Samsung 40” 4K/60Hz display and secondary ASUS 27” 1440p/175Hz Monitor until I can get a 40” 4K/120Hz OLED since 40” is perfect for me and I don’t want to compromise on something larger or smaller than my ideal for the next display.

3090 hopefully. I'll be using a normal large-format Samsung 4K TV for the immediate future. Will be upgrading to an HDMI 2.1 in the next 7-8 months, which will be able to take advantage some some additional features and horsepower.

Looks like it's on the wall to me sir.
Haha yes it’s wall mounted but so are the 40inch 4k on my sons desk and my old 40inch vizio was to. Takes up a lot less desk space and puts you at a better viewing angle. Like have it mounted right at the edge of the desk. Now I just need to build a stand for my computer. So I can put my Speakers back on my desk. I hate using tv speakers.

CRG9 5120 X 1440 - I think the 3080 will manage 100+fps on most titles as it's 1million pixels less than 4K. Can't justify the 3090

I bought the LG 38GL950G-B 38 Inch UltraGear Nano IPS 1ms Curved Gaming Monitor with 144HZ Refresh Rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC, Black in anticipation of getting a 3080 (hopefully Ti) from EVGA with an AIO. The monitor is a remarkable upgrade from what I had been using, whilst being ridiculously over priced.. but hey.. gaming! The monitor seems a bit buggy to me, but I'm new with it so maybe some user error going on. I debated going 4k, but I like having way more frames than are really necessary, and I'm addicted to 21:9.
