Philips Announces Their Momentum 436M6VBPAB Monitor: 4K, Display HDR 1000, Active Sync

Philips have been on a roll not only with their OLED TVs, which have become some of the highest-esteemed in the market, but want to bring that premium quality to their PC monitors as well. Enter the Momentum 436M6VBPAB monitor, a 43" MVA panel affair that supports 4K resolution, features true Display HDR with 1000 maximum nits brightness, and Active Sync tech to bring it up to speed to users' interests and the latest tech (tough sadly, it's being listed as a 60 Hz panel). Have we mentioned integration of Philips' excellently mesmerizing Ambiglow technology?

Philips is promising 97.6% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space, a peak brightness of over 1000 nits (needed fot that HDR 1000 certification), local dimming for deeper blacks, and support for 10-bit colour (8-bit + FRC). The display will support HDMI 2.0, Displayport 1.2, mini DisplayPort and USB Type-C (DP alt mode) inputs. This monitor may well release in the near future, but expect its pricing to be adequate to the technology it offers.

wow, very nice. i wonder what it is really like to use a screen like that though, most people think i am insane when i crank brightness to 90% on my 400 nit monitor, but it does make the colors pop more.

"and support for 10-bit colour (8-bit + FRC)"

So not 10-bit.

Just noticed its maximum power usage. Holy crap, that's actually insane for a screen in 2018.

Did you mean Adaptive-sync aka FreeSync with that "Active sync"?

To me that just sounds like you need a proper monitor instead with higher static contrast + proper calibration.

Brightness is not relevant or required to make colors pop, at all; it should only be used to balance out the image with the amount of light in the room. I'm staying FAR away from 1000 nit panels, rather, focus on the lowest black levels (OLED/VA).

This fake form of high brightness HDR should be avoided and its a real shame its being marketed like this. Another trick to hide crappy panel technology.

Well yeah, 40"-43" plasma TVs sucked 200W to 450W ten years a go. Of course current gen. TVs does not consume that much, tech has been bettered but also regulation have been tightened.

EUs energy efficiency class would put this monitor to lowest G -class, which actually might be the reason this one ain't marketed as TV.

Would be nice if AMD actually offered anything to compete with the 1080Ti @ 4K, nevermind what Nvidia have in the pipeline for their next generation of cards around the corner. There are some nice FreeSync monitors out there but in absence of a high end AMD GPU to really push them, what's the point??

It gets a damn sight closer than pretty much every TV on the market though! If it's genuinely 1000 nits with local dimming at an affordable price, that's a win for the most part. I don't expect this to be cheap though, not at all.

If it's really have actual Vesa's DisplayHDR 1000 certification as the specs says, I'm quite sure it can be really good at HDR.
