"and a friendly reminder schedule that pops up a warning for users who have been using the monitor for too long, reminding them to take a little walk."
I sure hope this doesn't go main stream & I hope there is a option to shyt-can this, I have enough pop up errors, notifications & crap going on all day that this thing will shut off cuz it "thinks" I'm on too many hours........pass

Since the people that are going to obsess over this display don't care about graphics fideltiy in the first place this will pair well with DLSS just corrode the image quality for the sake of FPS.

Supported by statistics. See Steam hardware stats..
You mean the stats that show that most people have a GTX 1060 and 1050 Ti graphics cards?
Of course those people would use a 1080p screen, but NONE, ZERO, NADA of them would get 360fps on this screen with those cards.

No, not at all.
You made a claim that 1080p was the most common resolution. Point taken.
This is a 1080p screen, right?
It can do 360Hz, or so it's claimed, right?
But none of the same people you point out on the Steam survey are going to buy this, as their graphics cards, as I pointed out, are GeForce GTX 1060 or 1050 Ti cards...
In other words, your point has really very little to do with this product, as it's clearly not aimed at 99.9% of those on the Steam survey that owns a 1080p screen.

1080p is absolutely fine for gaming and I would mind owning one of those 1080p 240/360.not on my priority list but man,1080p 240/360 is a million miles better than owning a 60hz 4K.
this must be fun for shooters and parkour games,I bet dying light be the zombie mode plays ridiculous on this.

I honestly don't understand people who see this and curse ppl who are interested.why ? not interested then get out.there'll be people who are cause they understand that pushing pc gaming experience is not just about more pixels.

but I guess that's the type,they think 1080p is stupid and then see this and say "I would like to pay a grand for that"

Can't agree more, gaming monitors are pathetic, they still use LCD technologies which even after decades can't even get close to CRT. The worst part as you mentioned the price, if they cost say 500/600€ max it'd be reasonable, but they cost more than an OLED TV with better technologies across the board.

I agree with most of this except the "240/360 is a million miles better than owning a 60hz 4K" part. I went back to my 4k 60hz IPS after trying a much faster 1440p LG for a month. My 4k 60hz panel just looked a lot better for the strategy / RTS stuff that I play most often. I guess I'm saying it all depends on what you're playing.

You're assuming that those that have better cards also do not game on 1080p displays and that is a VERY poor assumption. So yes, you missed the point.

Interesting, I could not tell the difference between 120 and 144 hz settings on a 144Hz screen. I thought diminishing returns started taking effect after 100Hz. So is this just for bragging rights/e-peen??

1080P 144hz is beautiful.

I have seen the 4K TV's... i am not missing anything, my 24" monitor basically looks slightly better than a 4K set at 50". 91 PPI on 1080P vs 88 on 4K.


If i need more details i can just downsample, i am not losing anything doing so.

Your eyes or your brain? My eyes say never go back to 1080p, unless its a screen 15" or smaller. I have a 27" 4k. I used a 24" 1080p the other day and it was like looking at an 8-bit video game. :)

Well you are very limited as to what you can play at 4K with your RX 480 too, you seem to like pixels, others prefer speed, i am on the speed side.

No, I agree with him, before I consider 300fps to be of any benefit, I want to see scientifically controlled tests that prove an AVERAGE human can even distinguish the difference between 240hz and 360hz
120-144hz is a blur for me, but from 60 to 120hz is night and day.

I have 144hz as it is a 2018 monitor with Quantum Dot technology and a VA panel, 3000:1 contrast ratio, image is insanely good.


Most 4K screens can barely hit 1000:1.

Are you saying that games look better when you have a higher FPS and high refresh rate monitor or did I miss something?

Yes they look silky smooth.

"Compared to TNs, VA panels do offer much better color reproduction and typically hit the full sRGB spectrum, even on lower-end models. If you’re willing to spend a bit more, Samsung’s Quantum Dot SVA panels can hit 125 percent sRGB coverage. "


144hz, impeccable image quality, 2 HDMI & DP, pixels only go so far, they can't fix bad image quality.

The price jump to 4K for a comparable screen would be ridiculous.

yes.visual experience in games is 99% image in motion.

even for tpp rpgs I prefer my avg. fps to stay above 75 and 1% over 65.and that's the lowest I'd expect from the genre where I'm most comforatble playing at lower framerate.an it's still a broad statement tho
for example for a batman game I really wanna stay above 100 fps as often as I can.it looks better and plays better.movement,flying,fighting and even the damn cape looks more natural.

If youre still making 1080p, youre doing it wrong.
Even 1080p 24" at 92 ppi is eye soaring.
Naah.

Your eyes or your brain? My eyes say never go back to 1080p, unless its a screen 15" or smaller. I have a 27" 4k. I used a 24" 1080p the other day and it was like looking at an 8-bit video game. :)
I honestly don't know how people can deal with so small things, considering scaling is still not perfect.

1080p is stupid when you have a 2080Ti for example attached to it.
Most people don't.

Hold on there pal. Silky smooth that's game experience but not that it looks better when you compare visuals to games set at 4k. That's a different thing.
I'm not comparing panels only 1080p high refresh rate vs 4k resolution.

No contest, 4K looks like shit without good panel tech same as 1080P.

It all adds up, my panel will look superior vs a basic 4K monitor, it does... it does to my eyes.

huh. I understand that the quality of the panel may not be the best but you can't say, being a sane person, that games at 1080p high refresh rate monitor looks better than games at 4k in general.
Maybe your eyes are fixed on the high refresh rate too much but the visuals at 4k are extraordinary in comparison to what you get at 1080p despite high refresh rate cause the last one gives you smooth experience not better visuals.
