    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Yep, I agree that Sharpness = 10 is correct in PC mode. Below is 120Hz with VRR HDR and UHD: The artifacts on those bottom 2 lines are from my iPhone X. When I put my eyeballs up to the screen they look perfect. I'm using 32-bit color depth 10 bpc RGB and Full dynamics range. I tried...

    What are some good cheap around 85" TVs?

    That was custom build. 3/4" plywood then laminated. When I got the LG 84" back in 2015, I took the feet off the credenza and used the stand that came with the LG so that my eyes when sitting would be at the exact vertical center of the screen. The width is just about perfect for...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I checked out the rtings review here: And they said to set sharpness to 0 to disable it, but that is clearly not working for me. I have several other monitors/TVs that are all pixel perfect as follows: Samsung Odyssey G9 Lenovo G27Q Samsung JS9000 (49" curved) I followed the guide here to...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    It was indeed sharpness being set to zero! So what sharpness value should I use to disable it completely? I'm currently at 10, which seem like a decent compromise. What are you guys settings for everything else under Expert Settings? I currently have: 15 Brightness 50 Contrast 10 Sharpness...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Picked up a Q90A today from Crutchfield, and everything is fuzzy on the screen. I'm on HDMI4. GPU is a 3090. Using a Ruipro certified 8K60Hz/4K120Hz HDMI cable. Info on the TV shows the following: HDMI4 is set to PC mode and game. Nvidia display panel shows PC mode and 3840 x 2160 as...

    What are some good cheap around 85" TVs?

    I scored an open box QN85Q80T from my local BB for $1,800. It is flawless except for some minor scratches on the pedestal which won't matter since I'm wall mounting it. Very impressive with the picture after getting it dialed in. Blows away the LG 84UB9800 that it is replacing. That was a...

    Official EVGA Ampere Queue Thread

    The irony is that with this change, a lot of scalpers that signed up with a ton of fake accounts, will now get cards. With this change it sounds like EVGA has gone woke. They are trying to guarantee equality of outcome, regardless of how much effort a person has made toward the goal. Loyal...

    How to update BIOS on Asus TUF B365M-PLUS GAMING when BIOS is too old to support i5-9400T that I got for it

    The i5-9400T finally showed up today. Sure enough, the little mobo booted right right up. BIOS is actually 1601 from 2020, which is newer than anything on the Asus website. So I got my cute little mining box up and running: Its completely quiet and GPU temp stays around mid 60's in my...

    How to update BIOS on Asus TUF B365M-PLUS GAMING when BIOS is too old to support i5-9400T that I got for it

    I noticed this sticker on the board: 1201 happens to be the latest BIOS made for this board. Coincidence? The CPU will be here Friday, so I guess I'll find out then. In case you guys were wondering, this is going in a little cube case that will only accept a Micro ATX mobo. It will be a...
