  1. I have and I’m seeing conflicting things. Hence why I’m asking.
  2. I probably wouldn’t look to do crazy OC’s, just something stable & simple to maximise the CPU/Silicon Lottery, but was wondering with the 5950X as normally more cores means lower clock speed and that’s why I was wondering if the 5900X or 10900K would be faster?
  3. There seem to be a lot of new IPS monitors catching up in terms of better response times & higher Hz. I personally waited years for the 35VQ but ultimately it was bandwidth restricted and the VA panel didn’t do it any favours. Definitely worth waiting on this type of monitor.
  4. Out of the 10900K (Intels Best?), the 5900X & 5950X, which is the current fastest CPU? I’m looking at doing a new build with a custom loop in order to OC, have the AMD CPUs lived up to the hype and been able to outperform Intel? I know Intel should have a big 2021, with new chips in March and towards end of the year, but interested in what’s currently the best.
  5. I’ve seen various conflicting benchmarks/reviews and wanted to ask, Overall/Average, which card ranks highest in terms of Gaming Performance? I know the 3090 is marginally faster than a 3080 at 1-10%, but does the 6800/6900XT beat the 3090? Also, what are the average 3DMark TimeSpy scores for a 6800/6900XT?
  6. I mean it needs to be 16.6ms or below for 60Hz so it’s not going to be noticeable.
  7. Yes, there’s a new X27 coming, but for now, it’s going to be 32” size (X32). 4K looks immense on 27”, so pixel dense, it’s fine for gaming IMO however if you do a lot of desktop work/productivity stuff, then 32” can be better to utilise the res. I would say you have the PG27UQ & 27GN950 as the best monitors, but my money would go on a 48” LG CX. Out of those 3, you can’t really go wrong.
  8. It doesn’t have DSC so it’s limited. I would pick the LG 27GN950. A lot cheaper.
  9. Depends entirely on your budget. You’ve got: LG 27GN950 - HDR600 ~£800 ASUS PG27UQ - HDR1000 ~£2,000 ASUS PG32UQX (Coming Jan 2021) - HDR1400 ~£3,500 Curveball would be a: LG CX 48” ~£1400

  11. Best 1440p 240Hz right now is the Lenovo Y27gq. There are IPS versions coming soon which will be superior, when we’re going to see them, who knows, but one might release before the year is out.
  12. You can do 4K 144Hz 10bit right now via the LG monitor. There will be more coming soon. HDMI 2.1 is very good if you’re planning to use a TV that supports 2.1. Otherwise, DP 1.4 can do what you need.
  13. No doubt has worked out well for you, PC setups don’t normally have that kind of space to wall mount 55”. Being so close to that is just... headache inducing imo Maybe for productivity, idk, but for gaming, I wouldn’t say so, it’s like 1440p but of course, the detail level is turned up to insane, I appreciate the extra pixels! My desk is 73cm high, and my chair wouldn’t drop down lower to accommodate a screen basically sitting there with a small stand, would need to be slightly higher. I guess I’m someone who 27” is perfect for on a des
  14. Personally & for a lot of people, 48” is too big for Monitor use. I know some people make it work but 27” is just so much more versatile on a desk. You have no adjustment either with the TV, so you need a Arm for it. I know Samsung will try and bring OLED monitors to the market, I’d go up to 32” if they ever do come out. Apart from that, going over that size, means going into a living room setup, so then I use my 77” OLED.
  15. LG 27GN950 does: 4K 144Hz 10-bit Via DP 1.4 with DSC. And it’s £750. Eve Spectrum will be out soon, same thing, but with HDMI 2.1 as well (bonus for PS5) and it’s coming in cheaper around ~£600.
  16. For PS5 you want a HDMI 2.1 monitor, of which won’t be released till end of the year. Eve Spectrum should be releasing a ~£600 4K 144Hz one by then.
  17. The detail when playing in 4K is insane. When I had the PG27UQ, you could easily tell the difference between that and any 1440p monitor. 1080p just all round looks bad now, been used to 2K since 2008... Max screen size for that is definitely 24/25. 1440p is a good sweet spot because it’s far easier to run than 4K. But I would much rather play 4K 100-144FPS, then 1440p 144FPS. I’m sure the new 3090 will really help make that possible.
  18. 1440p 240Hz IPS monitors will be out by then, tbh, I’d pick that over the G7. The 360Hz is useful for having the fastest, with the least input lag. It’s also a IPS with great DCI-P3 coverage. I’m also waiting for the AlienWare version.
  19. 1440p 240Hz is a good option. 1440p 144Hz if budget won’t get you that far. 1080p should only be considered again if you’re looking at 240Hz or the upcoming 360Hz. if you want a screen for a long time, 4K 144Hz makes sense to enjoy games in SP at 60-144FPS & MP at 80-144FPS depending on settings / game. You need to decide which way to go, then look at which monitors in that spec.
  20. God of War would be absolutely amazing on PC.
  21. This was given a very quick release after announcement in September, I guess to relate to RTX 3000. I’ll be very interested in the review, but I will hold off I think until Acer & AlienWare have their version out as I want to see all 3. I’m leaning towards the AlienWare, the aesthetics look the best, should perform about the same. ASUS still using the very, very old design that’s not really fresh anymore imo.
  22. MicroLED is coming but is around 3-5 years off yet. Apple has also invested hugely into it for their products but will use MiniLED first, as will ASUS and other companies. But companies are developing it.
  23. The main issue is making OLED screens in that size. It’s just expensive/problematic and LCD sales are still strong. That’s the number 1 reason why they don’t exist.
  24. I only really buy Zotac’s best, the cards always perform well, have fastest OC from factory, go pretty high on further OC, quiet, well built & all round never had an issue myself. Preferences I guess!
