Dual 32 ultra wide to 49in?

Because there's not enough monitor threads, but I genuinely can't make a decision.

 

My dream monitor would be two 32 or 34in screens in the 49in form factor, but it doesn't exist. This had me seriously considering the Samsung Arc for a little bit because I really don't want to lose the height. I do a lot of CAD and also maintain my own website, but game a little and consume Netflix/YouTube while working. I'll never hook up a console to this as it's strictly computer screen. Not really interested in jumping on the 4k bandwagon yet and fine with 1440p or maybe 2k since I plan on running my Radeon VII for a while still. 

 

Has anyone made the switch and missed the height? Doesn't look my dream screen will be released any time soon.

What do you have now?  

Not a pro, not even very good.  I’m just old and have time currently.  Assuming I know a lot about computers can be a mistake.

49in form factor

This is actually 2 units of 27" 1440p Wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio join together side by side.

This Samsung Arc is 55" Wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio 4k resolution monitor. 

 

You need to know more the monitor you want actual spec before decide as what you want now is something spec you not prefer as well.

Yes yes I know the 49 is two 27 in monitors. I'm discussing screen real estate and the form factor the 49 inch is. Besides that, the Radeon VII will handle those resolutions fine at 1440p. Benchmarks suggest it will run tomb raider at 50fps in 4k and it handles everything else I need just fine for now.

 

Sure it's not optimum, but it works. I plan on upgrading to 7950x first as the rendering work I do is primarily CPU driven. 

 

Gaming is not a priority. Anyway it's more of a question about those that moved from two larger screens to a 49in and if it was worth the move with less vertical screen space since what I want doesn't exist.

Some people can’t handle pixels that chunky.  So you want to go down in screen real estate but up in resolution? Not sure that radeon7 will do it well. How about a couple of 27” 4ks? It’s even more pixels which is already a serious problem, but 4k does 1080p really well, so for situations where your video card can’t handle it (which will be just about anything 3d) you go down to 1080p so it’s 2k again and there’s always fss.  The thing is that card will have trouble with 1440p too and 1440p doesn’t go down to 1080p nearly as nicely.

Not a pro, not even very good.  I’m just old and have time currently.  Assuming I know a lot about computers can be a mistake.
