    Flicker during loading screens on most displays with VRR is unavoidable. Lots of big frametime spikes and heavy IO causing wide refresh rate swings that the monitor can't handle so it flickers. If its not happening in game I really don't care TBH.

    Yeah mine got delayed to late July so I cancelled. Samsungs monitors always have sales so not really conerned about losing the discounted price. EDIT: They told me its backordered this past Monday yet you could still place orders. Just now its...

    Yeah I dunno about that. PG27UQ was firmware updatable. There is probably some engineering time required to get the job done that Dell doesn't want to invest and would rather eat shipping costs for the few (in the grand scheme of things)...

    It's the scaler or display driver IC that's likely at fault. G7, G9, Neo G9, G8 all use different panel models #'s so the likelyhood of all the panels being the culprit is low. It's bad but on the other hand it's also uncharted territory with...

    Sony also just released an update that enables FALD with VRR this week. Only the X900H with the ghetto chipset that halves vertical resolution @ 4K/120hz is excluded. All of those Sony TV's are just typical smeary VA's though and not really...

    To be fair that picture is obscenely overexposed to the point where whats visible on the G8 is undecipherable without the C2 showing a identical image. In real life it will look nothing like that at all and I know because he's got his C2 looking...

    Its a Asus PG32UQXE by Coolermaster. There will be quite a few variants from other manufacturers like Acer, etc.

    Yeah that looks pretty terrible but its expected when comparing OLED vs FALD. Just wish they went accurate at the expense of bloom like the PG32 instead of doing all this wonky crap with FALD based on APL.

    I don't even know what to make of this photo. You sure HDR is "working" correctly because it really has issues when cloned across displays especially on the non primary.

    Bestbuy started shipping G8's last week with plenty receiving theirs. They are constrained to maintaining the listing based on Samsungs July 8th release date.
  • S
    Yeah their order processing makes no sense. Friend lives in Texas. Amazon and Bestbuy are basically shipping on demand right now while Samsung is backed up because of their recent quarterly sales event and I think way more purchased these...

    Even with its limited brightness the Neo G7 should destroy the FV43U in HDR. That things an 8 zone edge lit monitor that isn't even capable of "highlights" since it just behaves like a globally lit monitor and blasts the entire panel which can be...

    Sony is inzone but completely outoftouch. Coolermaster GP27-FUS is $1099. https://pcmonitors.info/cooler-master/cooler-master-gp27-fus-160hz-4k-ips-with-mini-led/ -4K/160hz -576 zone mini led -1200nits 10% window -sRGB mode -HDMI 2.1 full...

    I have no issues with seeing bios post on boot.

    The 42" C2 outputs at 137/138hz and no higher when I make a custom res but frame skips. Really wish someone who knows timings could mess with it and see if its really possible.

    Yeah people here are a minority. The majority of PC monitor users want matte because they can't stand looking at their disgusting face in the displays reflection.
  • S
    Samsung just doesn't make sense.

    Yes people on the monitor discord have done it and scanlines are still present. Seems like 167ish Hz is the ceiling for a scan line free experience like the Neo G9.

    SoCali replied to the thread 42" OLED MASTER THREAD.
    Well Rtings at least confirmed what I've been saying in here since the 42" launched in North America. Most of the time it's actually brighter than the AW. The Dell is a brighter SDR monitor but in HDR the C2 looks more impactful 75% of the time...

    The confirmed differences are 240hz vs 165hz along with the AR coating with the G8 having a far more aggressive matte. The controversial difference is HDMI 2.1 support because Samsung lists the G7 as having it in one place and says otherwise...
