The first of the 4k ultrawides is here.

With the ultrawide resolutions we get them equivalating the regular 16:9 monitors giving us the following resolution breakdown:

widescreen = ultrawide
1920x1080 = 2560x1080,
2560x1440 = 3440x1440,
2560x1600 = 3840x1600.



Now we are starting to see the first of the 4k ultrawide monitors hit the market. As with the 3840x1600 models LG was the first brand to get their model on the market.

The 4k and it's ultrawide equivalents pixel count is:

widescreen = ultrawide
3840x2160 = 5120x2160

With more pixels than 4k it will require some serious gpu grunt for gaming and like we saw with the first of the 3840x1600 monitors they're not really going to be great gaming monitors regardless of what LG might tell us.

For Freesync gaming you want a relatively wide working range as well as LFC support,
LFC (Low Framerate Compensator) is why Nvidia's G-sync monitors were superior to the first Freesync monitors, That's due to the G-sync version of LFC being built into the module that controls the monitor by default, It allows the monitor to smooth out the gaming experience when the fps goes lower than the monitors adaptive sync working range, AMD developed LFC after the first Freesync monitors hit the market to improve the experience and reduce the G-sync advantage.

As we saw with the first 3840x1600 monitors new panel designs need time to mature, The first 3840x1600 models had a poor Freesync range that was only 23hz wide (52-75) add to that the lack of LFC and basically it's Freesync support is little more than an afterthought.

LG have not released this models adaptive sync details yet but I expect they won't be great and will remain like that until the panel design matures (this isn't LG's fault) so we'll have to wait another year or two for the decent gaming models from any brand.

One big surprise is the panel size. with Ultrawides a 29" 2560x1080 is the same height as a 24" 1920x1080 so although the pixel count is up the pixel density isn't, It's the same with a34" 3440x1440 & a 27" 2560x1440.

When we got the 3840x1600 panels the monitors went up to 38" so I was expecting at least 38" again but instead these are in both 32" & 34" meaning there's a huge jump in pixel density.
Maybe staying with the more mature 34" panel size means it will have better adaptive sync support than if they'd gone for the 38" or above but maybe that's just my wishful thinking, My next upgrade will be to either 4k or 4k UW but I'll want a minimum of 100hz when I do so for now I'm glad to see the resolution finally hit the market and I look forward to learning more at this years CES where it's expected to be announced.

When superwide just isn't wide enough.

It's a shame it's based on 1080p pixel density, that said if it was 1440 or higher AMD wouldn't have anything available to run it properly

An interesting read, With Adaptive Sync TV's due in 2018 or 2019 I'd wait before buying a TV,
I bought my TV early this year, but that was before the announcement that adaptive sync TV's were almost here was made and I've been kicking myself ever since.
I'm betting that Nvidia will start supporting adaptive sync on TV's as it's unlikely we'll see G-sync models. I will get an adaptive sync TV but I'll give it a few years and then try to find one at a sensible price.

Depending on what you paid, you're most likely fine. While I enjoy reading and learning about new technology, I rarely want to pay the steep price to be the first to own them. These articles talk about HDR 27" monitors in the $1,000 to $1,500 range which is too much for too little size.

You're right it's way too much, My TV is a 40" 4k HDR Smart telly from Samsung and it was only £400 new. which is half of what my ultra-wide Freesync monitor would of cost me if I'd got that new.
A good example of how PC'ers have to pay through the teeth nowadays.

This is the exact TV although it's gone up by £30 now.

If I do replace my monitor with another monitor I might go back to widescreen instead of ultra-wide. A 144hz 4k panel could be a better option although 27" isn't big enough, I tried fake 4k on my 27" panel using AMD software & everything's too small for my eyes so 32" or maybe 40" would be better for me.

I just replaced my 2011 purchased Asus VK278Q Black 27" 1920x1080 2ms Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor w/Webcam 300 cd/m2 10,000,000 :1 (ASCR) that is actually still for sale at Newegg for $275.

This is what I just got:

https://www.asus.com/us/Monitors/ROG-Strix-XG32VQ/

I didn't want to pay twice as much for the G-Sync version and I'm not convinced it's that big of a deal. Besides there are many articles on the internet to get Nvidia cards to work with some functionality with Free-Sync. I'm looking forward to 1440p and 144Hz refresh rate. The curved monitor is cool too.

OLED screens for gaming?

OLED PC screens still seem to be in the future, but they're nothing new for TV sets. But do you dare to play longer game sessions on them due to the burn-in risk (e.g. from an in-game HUD)?

Otherwise the advantages of OLED (over say QLED) seem to be fast response time and better contrast, but how important are those things in practice? Do you really need that response time if you're not an esport gamer, and how many real games or movies feature the kind of contrast seen in the OLED demos?

OLED seems to be a non-starter on PC due to burn-in. After a few months, you will permanently have your task bar, browser toolbar, status bar, and close button negatives overlayed on top of your games. We might have to wait for microLED.

It's definitely a consideration for someone who has their PC on for hours every day, Personally I don't see what's wrong with what we use now.

I won't pretend to fully understand the differences beyond what the basic literature tells us but I've got no issues with what we can get now so I see no need to look any further than what's tried tested & readily available today.

For gaming the thing I thought would matter the most was the response times & my first monitor that I bought with gaming in mind was an LED TN panel with a 2ms response time, after having had the importance of a good responce time drilled into my head I was a touch concerned about how moving to a 4ms screen several years later would affect me but I couldn't tell the difference so it's a non issue for me, In contrast burn in would be an issue so unless they fix it OLED won't be on my radar anytime soon.

For me going with either TN, VA or IPS is what matters when looking for a screen to use with my PC. I have an LCD (UW1440) & LED (1080p) monitor right now & they both do their job admirably,

I can't see anything about OLED that makes me want to make the move. I'll likely move to QLED (Quantum-dot Light Emitting Diode) next & I think I'll also be making the move to a high refresh rate adaptive sync 4k TV with HDR rather than another monitor.

I got burn-in on my old CRT monitor after a decade of use. It was mostly the program toolbars at the top you could see, but oddly enough not a trace of Stalker's HUD on it.

I've also considered getting an OLED TV, since normal TV viewing apparently is fine. Maybe console game HUDs could cause temporary burn-in on it if you play long enough, but I doubt I'd play any console game for more than a couple hundred hours in total, which isn't that much in the long run.
