Looking for a beefy monitor... better luck waiting?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I'm about to build a new PC based on Ryzen 3000 and the 2080ti (or next gen, if it's out at that time). I am going to be getting a new monitor at that time, too.

 

Currently, my monitor is the PG279Q. That monitor has served me well, but I have a couple complaints about it:

 

-First, I knew it when I got it, because my GPUs couldn't support it, but its 1440p, not 4K, so I'd like to move to 4K.

 

-Second, though it's an IPS, the colors aren't exactly what I'd call 'vibrant'. I think this likely has to do with the 8bit colors. So I'd like to move to at *least* HDR600.

 

-Finally, the blacks on this screen aren't even close to black. They're obviously gray. I'd like to have much deeper blacks.

 

Taking all of this into account, here's the list of things I'm looking for in this monitor: 27-32", 4K or better, 6ms response or better, HDR600 or better (not 8bit + dithering, but at least true 10bit), and decent black levels. I don't care about panel type, as long as it's not TN.

 

Is there any monitor currently that fits these requirements, or am I better of waiting? And if I'm better off waiting, for what in particular?

It would seem that you would like something like this, but not in an ultrawide form factor:

https://www.lg.com/uk/monitors/lg-34WK95U (5120 x 2160, IPS, native 10bit, HDR600, DCI-P3 98%, 1200/1 contrast, 60hz).

 

But if you want even better blacks then you would need to get a VA monitor, so you would need to wait still.

 

Also i didn't see any mention of the refreshrate you want, obviously if you want a 120hz monitor with all these specs you would need to wait longer, or get the current top-end monitors, with their limitations.

That's very close to what I'm looking for. I don't really care about the refresh rate. I know tons of people swear by high refresh rate monitors, but I don't play too many FPSs, and that's one of the few areas in willing to compromise in. Unfortunately, though, the black levels is something I'm not. I've been watching too many movies, lately, and I'm tired of black looking gray...

Well that LG monitor has much better blacks than the asus monitor, but still, a little grayish blacks are the downsides of IPS.

VA has a host of other problems, but it has very dark blacks.

 

So if you can, i recommend trying the LG monitor with the newest "nano IPS" technology, maybe the blacks are black enough on it?

I am waiting for this.

It will be hard to run since my RTX 2080 ti can only do 72fps at the settings I like at that resolution on games like Assassin's Creed Odyssey/Origins. At 4k I can do 61fps since I need less AA.
