Does a non-ultra-wide version of this exist?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So there exist a few monitors like the Asus PG35VQ (and a few other brands that make basically the same monitor - check here: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/ )

They have more or less everything you'd want in a gaming monitor - 1440p, so not too difficult to drive, HDR1000, proper gsync (i.e. 1-200Hz), not the wishy washy freesync where your min adaptive refresh can sometimes go as high as 60Hz, FALD, not exactly TN pixel response, cuz they're all VAs obviously, but not terrible. Anyway, great stuff, almost holy grail territory (with an input upgrade it'd be better - no choosing between 200 Hz + chroma subsampling or 120Hz + full color).

 

One question: Does a 16:9 version of such a monitor exist?

No.

 

Proper HDR is pretty new. Thus, it's only on the really high mdoels.

only had HDR600

 

That's about as good as it get.

 

Like @dizmo said, HDR is new, very expensive, and isn't really implemented in gaming monitors yet.

Yea, and 60 Hz min refresh rate. Screw that.

 

So anyway, can we expect monitors like that to come out? They'd be 27 in. sized - what's left when you cut the ultra-part. Although from my calculations, 35 inch ultra-wides do end up a bit taller than 27 normal-wides (y~13.51 vs y~13.24 in respectively).

They might be a little taller, I'm not sure. My UW seemed very similar to my 27", but I never measured.

 

I don't know when we can expect them to come out personally. As far as I know nothing has been teased/announced. What is your budget? Because it's safe to say everything you want + true HDR is going to cost somewhere between a fuck load, and an insane amount of cha-ching.

Not sure yet, this is more with an eye towards the future when the next GPU generation gets here. Probably around 1-1.5 kacha-chings.

 

I was kinda hoping there'd be something on the horizon by then.
