OLED's lifespan still seems like an issue I don't want to deal with yet. I generally re-use monitors for many system builds, so age-dimming scares me.... not OLED.
LG is the champion of OLED in the TV space. They should move OLED into the monitor space also. I'd be perfectly happy with a G/FreeSync 1080p OLED monitor.
I asked about this on another tech site that I frequent. "Further conversation with Nvidia has pointed out how difficult this might be. You'd need multiple display *outputs*, too, apparently. It's technically possible, but I think the bar is very high."so I'd rather have a decent 1440p monitor that supports both GSYNC and Freesync together, I bet we will have such a hybrid one day. .
Not bad, but I'd wait another year honestly. I don't want to marry to AMD, so I'd rather have a decent 1440p monitor that supports both GSYNC and Freesync together, I bet we will have such a hybrid one day.
4k is just off my reach, not because monitor is expensive, but because you need ridiculous setup to actually have decent FPS there with good quality settings, maybe 2 years or so when Nvidia pop out Pascal with HBM, it might be feasible enough - 4k with a single enthusiast GPU.
This!! For Freesync to succeed we need manufacturers to be open about the refresh rate range of their monitors. Slapping the "FreeSync" word on a product actually tells us very little. It will become fantastic when products are clearly labelled/advertised and I don't think anyone would begrudge a market where you can choose to pick up very cheap "FreeSync (48-75hz)" monitors, or pay extra for "FreeSync (30-144hz)" displays.Most important question: What's the FreeSync range it supports?
Hilariously nVidia could just support GSync AND FreeSync (probably with nothing more than a driver update). Naturally they refuse to do that because nVidia.Not bad, but I'd wait another year honestly. I don't want to marry to AMD, so I'd rather have a decent 1440p monitor that supports both GSYNC and Freesync together, I bet we will have such a hybrid one day.
We appreciate what you, and other commenters, are asking for here. We have a lot of the same questions, and we'll hopefully answer them when we get a chance to test out this new tech in depth.That's why we need Toms and others to educate consumers and keep the pressure on monitor manufacturers to chase wider refresh rates, not just slap a "FreeSync" label on a 48-75hz monitor and be done with it.
