what would it need 1.3 for? when 1.2 suits the needs.

Now if it was 144hz and 3440x1440 then it would have to be DP1.3

what am I missing? what is this display selling point? no "deep colors", no HDR, no quantum dots, in name MultiSync... but doesn't either FreeSync nor G-Sync, although by the name I would expect BOTH, what about price...no, not a bargain either.... so ... what is the point of this display?

That's the point -_-

I too am tired of these low ass refresh rates on these "new" monitors with outdated DisplayPorts.

Yeah, all new monitors should have by default 100Hz minimum by now, but then again, that would be another stupid reason to bump up the price to ridiculous levels.
