Flat? Do they use the magic VA tech from the curved models?

Why are we still not allowed to have 32 inch 4k high refresh monitors? Why is this the one spec combination that seems to be verboten?

Curved is kinda bad. I still regret my purchase of curved Samsung TV back in 2015/6.

Only freesync "Premium" and no "Premium Pro"?
So no freesync and HDR10 at the same time!
I don't understand why they cheaped out on this.

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
High refresh 1440p is where it's at.
At least, where it's at until both displays and GPUs can achieve 120+ fps at 4K without complications or compromise.

It is either curve, or gamma loss. Good for VAs, not good for IPS'es.
Most high-end Samsung TV's are using (S)VA screens anyway. Mine is VA, but still can't like the curve. :/

Asus PG32UQX is 4k 144hz at 32" with an IPS screen and a FALD backlight, so they are coming. It's just £3k for them at the moment...:roll:
