Gtx 1080 and Asus pg42uq

Hey all.

I'm wondering about something with my GTX 1080 Asus Strix with DP 1,4 firmware upgrade. 

 

I'm looking at the Asus pg42uq and wondering what kind of Hz I can run it at with my GTX 1080 dp1.4 without DSC?

I'm planning for a new build with at least a rtx 3080 late autumn so won't be running the GTX much longer. But would like not to go 60hz in the meantime. How much does 1.4 without DSC give me? 100? 120?

I'm not worried about in-game FPS, most of the games I run are more CPU locked 🤣 KSP and similar

Well that Display uses Display Port 1.4, so if that's what you have you should be able to get the max refresh rate. This monitor says on it's manufacturer page it supports up to 138hz with an overclock. So you should be able to get that. Or even at least the native which I believe is 120hz. Keep in mind this is also a 4K OLED display, your 1080 is going to have a rough time.

Yeah, but how much of that Hz is with DSC activated is what I'm wondering as the GTX does not have DSC.

I didn't know that was an issue with 10 series, then again I never tried running anything higher than 1440p with my 1080ti when I had it. According to the little information I found online you will only be able to max out with 4k 60hz on the GTX 1080. Even with the 1.4 firmware upgrade. Honestly, I'd say just go for a 1440p, even with the 3080 when you get that 4K is a bitch to run. Even with my 3090 I still use 1440p 165hzhz over getting a high refresh rate 4K. I'm probably going to stick with my 1440p even when I get my 4090. The performance drop compared to resolution between the two isn't worth it. 1440p high refresh is the best resolution for PC gaming in my opinion as someone who has used both resolutions extensively.

For me anything over 100 is perfectly fine. Its more important for me with colour, black level. I can't stand the IPS glow, VAs gamma shift, and TNs terrible colours for photo editing.  

Also I love movies and series in oled  4k hdr 😉

For now iv used a 1440p 144hz TN for gaming and a second IPS screen for somewhat correct ish colour grading. Most games I play run quite easily, never play AAA games anymore.
