Do all this with 42 inch upward display sizes and it will get my attention. Meanwhile, most gaming monitors are just too small.

KaziQ says:

Linus, this monitor has an 8-bit + FRC panel. Verified by an ASUS engineer on its forums and by other reviews + panel databases

Hey Linus – you should use G-Sync more often – then you would know, that G-Sync is broken for about 10 months now after the Win 10 creators update ! Gsync only works flawlessly with Windows 7 but not with Windows 10 any more. Nvidia does not care about this and don’t make new drivers to compensate this – they just say: gimmi all your money for Gsync hardware and then f*** off ! Thats great !! But I know that Nvidia has a main company goal and that is to earn more money – not to care about cutomers or broken products ! Now we need to use “window mode” and “Vsync = ON” to use Gsync in gaming. Nice !

gameflux says:

Cool if you have money to buy it and run it !

What if I don’t want 4k?
Your eyes can’t even see 4k

Your Friendly Hacker says:

Chris Korol says:

About 1550 too much for me.

DRACO says:

Linus are you sure it’ll be like that? The next graphics card’ll be gddr6

'PyronoX says:

ASUS VG248QE or the BenQ ZOWIE XL2411p?

s s says:

If you buy 4k monitor at anytime, regardless of it’s cost, you’re getting scammed. Your eyes cannot see in 4k. Games are not made to be in 4k, movies are not, streaming is not. The file size is too big. And should those file size issues ever be solved, whatever you buy will be long since obsolete.

Hi, gaming monitor 1080p – 144 Hz is better or 1440p – 60 hz ?

Superchad245 says:

I’d expect a smaller bezel for that amount of money

Oacceptabelt says:

Lovely! Youzuck censored all my replies to comments asking what wallpaper is at 03:14. It can be found on this link:

Loving the specs, absolutely hating the look. Give me my boring Dell Ultrasharp-ish design over this any day.
