Triple monitor or ultra wide?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

 

I want to upgrade my displays and I'm not sure if I should invest in an ultra wide monitor like this Samsung model or instead buy three of this Phillips one.

 

So my first question is in general, what are the advantages of paying more for an ultra wide besides the absence of bezels.

 

Then I want to know about these specific models. I'll be using them mostly for working, like 90% of the time, and then gaming on the weekends. My work does include some color-sensitive tasks and I don't care that much about super high refresh rates. I'll be fine at 75Hz.

 

Finally my  current GPU is a Vega 56, which I'm not planning on upgrading would it be able to handle such resolutions on recent single player titles?

 

Thanks

I think a single would be better.

Less cables.

No bezels.

Something goes wrong no chance of not being able to match the other 2 because outdated etc.

 


If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

Really depends what you do. You get considerably more real estate with the 3 monitors.

If these are the only advantages that's fine because I still end up paying half the price while getting more screen real estate.

Yes that was my point but considering the price difference I was thinking there would be some major drawback/advantage.

I only see this as a major drawback when editing videos, and I think that this could be mitigated by going for the 27" monitors instead of 24" ones. What do you think?
