    I am unbelievably excited for these displays... just have to decide who to go with! Reply

    I wonder if this has anything to do with nVidia needing to use DP 1.4 for 2160p@144Hz, which includes Freesync in its spec (1.3 and onwards, actually). But that still wouldn't explain why there are no freesync displays in the pipeline that can do 2160p@144Hz. Reply

    What are you talking about?

    "Meanwhile to no surprise (but always good for clarification), DisplayPort Active-Sync REMAINS AN OPTIONAL PART of the specification, so Adaptive-Sync availability will continue to be on a monitor-by-monitor basis as a premium feature."

    These displays, nor any DisplayPort 1.3 or 1.4 displays are required by VESA to have adaptive sync (otherwise known as AMD FreeSync) support.

    I guess I'll postpone my upgrade to next year then! Reply

    Welp, gotta stick to my crappy 22" TN for a little while longer. Reply

    Not the only announced G-Sync HDR monitors; the Asus PG35VQ and Acer Z35 (21:9, 1440p200) were both announced at Computex this year. Targeted at Q4 release. Reply

    Yeah, I'd be interested in knowing where these stand since I am leaning towards getting one of those. I have been using a 1440p144 for a few years and I tried one of the 21:9 1440p100 displays but found the refresh rate to be too low for my taste. However, I'd rather have 21:9 200hz than 4k144 since the 21:9 experience was amazing in the games that support it. Also, the 4k displays are still 27in, which seems a tad small Reply

    Also far more interested in what is going on with the PG35VQ & Acer Z35. Are they affected by this as well? Reply

    I know, i asked them on twitter if it was still coming this year and repeating the end of year statement. So hopefully. Reply

    @jstein -- I was going to wait for one of the new HDR 200hz 21:9 monitors, but there is some speculation is that they are going to be around $2,000. Even at $1500+ (which I think will be the bare minimum price), it's a pretty hard pill to swallow. While the 21:9 100hz displays out now aren't as good as 144hz monitors, I personally decided to grab a used PG348Q 21:9 100hz G-sync for $800, which is still a decent chunk of change for a used product. I figured while 100hz isn't ideal, it's still got G-sync, and it's definitely way better than no G-sync and 60hz. Reply

    IF these have slipped too, it suggests that the faster GSync controller both need to run may be the problem not that both sets of new panels ran into production problems. Reply

    Could just be a worst case scenario in case they cannot deliver on time but if the 'issue' gets resolved they may appear earlier. Probably someone covering their backside. Reply

    Are these going to be properly calibrated? I find it frustrating how many $800+ monitors aren't even calibrated all that well at the factory. Reply
  • Stochastic - Wednesday, August 09, 2017 - link

    Also, how many years before OLEDs make it to PC monitors? Reply

    Well, there was this: http://www.anandtech.com/show/11272/dells-ultrasha...

    Looks like it's no longer on sale, though.

    Probably never. It takes forever to fix very high cost of large panels and burn ins. It will very likely be replaced with newer & cheaper tech. I'd opt for monitor with Samsung Qdot HDR panel if you want something better and available right now. Reply
  • GoodRevrnd - Wednesday, August 09, 2017 - link

    Probably 2019 at best? IIRC LG's new OLED high volume plant goes online for 2018 (or is it in 2018 and therefore 2019 displays?). I'm sure this is predominately for TV displays, but my hope is once they can get their volume up they'll have some incentive to produce smaller displays for monitors. Reply
  • tk.icepick - Wednesday, August 09, 2017 - link

    MicroLED seems more promising: no burn-in, longer lifespan than OLED or LCD, and (potentially) competitive on other metrics like cost and manufacturing yields.

    It's totally pointless to include HDR on a monitor with a craptastic AHVA/IPS low contrast panel. That should stick to AMVA/VA-OLED. Reply
  • GoodRevrnd - Wednesday, August 09, 2017 - link

    FALD should help significantly, but I'm still skeptical. Even if the HDR is garbage I'd be tempted to get one for the IPS speed if the FALD mostly eliminated IPS glow. Reply

    Has there been any talk about similar panels in other sizes?

    I was about to pull the trigger on a 32" 4k 60hz GSync monitor (the taller size plays nicer with my existing 1200x1600 and 2560x1600 displays) when these were first announced. I decided to hold off assuming a larger version would be right behind in production; but haven't seen anything yet and am starting to wonder if I should just go with last years tech as an interim upgrade.

    Semi-answering my own question, AU Optronics lists a 32" 4k HDR 384 panel, but doesn't indicate if it's also high refresh rate. Reply
  • DanNeely - Thursday, August 10, 2017 - link

    ... lists on TFT Central.

    Has AU Optronics fixed their panels to not have light bleed or horrific backlight uniformity that their current 1440p models currently have? Reply
  • madwolfa - Wednesday, August 09, 2017 - link

    That remains to be seen. Reply

    I'll be interested when I see gsync in a 16:10 gaming monitor. Until then...pfftt. I have no use for WIDE crap in monitors. Reply
  • DanNeely - Friday, August 11, 2017 - link

    Going to be a long wait, 16:10 is in the same terminal decline that 4:3 was a decade ago; with models built around older panels still around but very little in the way of new products coming out. Reply

    What is status on the ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ? I have the Predator Z35P that uses the custom AU Optronics ar 120Hz. It stated that 200Hz is coming for the PG35VQ with HDR, and quantum dot. This IS this best monitor..but not a peep has been heard about it since June first..despite being "3rd quarter this year".

    I love the Z35P i have..

    Someone needs to tell these manufacturers that people that can afford these monitors, meaning not kids in grade school, don't like their crappy "gamer" designs. Reply
