Guys, stop it with these these fucking comments every time a new monitor is announcedThey need to make a 40" 21:9 OLED. Superwide is just too wide.
The person who made those graphics really dropped the ball. That doesn't even look curved.
This seems like a 5120x1440 version of the 3440x1440 QD-OLEDs we had this year. With the announcement of Samsung making a 7680x2160 version of this form factor, I have little interest in the MSI.
QD-OLED is not for me until they are at 4K+ resolution because that weird pixel structure is there unless Samsung re-engineers their stuff for standard RGB. It means lower text clarity in Windows unless MS improves ClearType to support more pixel structure formats. With the LG OLEDs I did not find this as much of an issue.
Even if the Samsung 7680x2160 is LCD, I'd still take that if it's going to perform similarly to Neo G8 overall (e.g. 240 Hz, decent HDR...hopefully no scanlines tho) as most of the time I will be using it on the desktop and the higher res matters there. I sold my CRG9 eventually because I wanted higher res despite liking the form factor a good bit.
I totally agree we need more 40" 5120x2160 options though. That's a real sweet spot form factor.
HDMI 2.1 should be fine when paired with DSC. Even a 2x ratio compression could deliver 7680x2160 10-bit 144 Hz with a 48 Gbps port. At 3x compression 40 GBps port would still do probably like 180 Hz.Not sure what the refresh rate is on that monitor but if it's too high then you might need DP 2.1 to drive it and the 4090 unfortunately lacks that.
So far Samsung has not been interested in making either of those form factors. Honestly 3840x1600 seems pretty much dead at this point and manufacturers will just eventually make better 5120x2160 40" displays. Well, at least I hope they do.Was hoping Samsung wouldn't continue their SUW obsession and release this instead of a 38-40" 3840*1600 or dream 5k2k, what a waste.
