Philips is following in ASUS' footsteps in introducing an uber-wide 32:9 monitor with a 49" VA panel diagonal. Philips is picking up the same panel that Samsung is using on their CH90, DFHD (Double Full HD) monitor. Philips, however, is shaving some of the technologies that make its Samsung counterpart more expensive - but also much more interesting for the gamer inside you. While Samsung is including their QLED technology in the CH90, as well as support for AMD's FreeSync 2 technology, Philips shaves those, which will allow the company to reach a sub $1,100 price-tag. It keeps the 1800R curvature, however, which really, is likely mandatory in such a wide panel.

The panel offers an ultra-wide aspect ratio with its 32:9 ratio (good luck on finding many games that support that out-of-the-box), but it features a somewhat low vertical resolution of just 1080 pixels. Brightness is being reported at a maximum 600 cd/m², and contrast at up to 5000:1. Connectivity-wise, the Philips 492P8 features 1x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, 1x USB Type-C input, 1x D-Sub connector, as well as built-in dual-port USB 3.0 and an Ethernet hub (the USB-C acts like an upstream port). 2x 3.5-mm audio connectors for headphones and a microphone. Philips plans to bring the 492P8 to the market sometime in Q2 next year and intends to sell the unit for about €899 ($1077). However, considering the time interval between now and launch, MSRP and specifications may be subject to change in the meantime.

I don't even complain about the resolution there...
But any display today released without support for any adaptive sync is very bad decision IMHO.

So many people being little childish brats about games not supporting wide resolutions when 90% of games I've found either don't need it or support my insane 48:9. Most for the latter.

All that money so you can still say

'I'm still stuck at 1080p'

But lets face it, this is a business monitor, for many side by side thingies. Uber wide. I like it.

5000:1 if it is static contrast is a sign of a good VA panel. If you see this calibrated right, it gets awfully close to OLED.

What's wrong with 1080p? If you like smaller monitors its great, you don't need to waste money on GPUs. Personally hate large monitors for gaming.

It was a joke :) Nothing wrong with 1080p, if you look at my specs you'll see I'm rocking the same res. It was mostly a stab at the eternal 1080p resolution even though in reality this panel gives you many many more pixels than a regular 16:9 :)

Honestly if I'd upgrade to higher resolution it would also be ultrawide, curved, VA, but not as ridiculously wide as this one, and I'd also want a bit more height, 12XXp at least. Height is really useful screen real estate especially for productivity.
