The Alienware QD-OLED has HDR as well... Low peak brightness, but also zero bloom.HDR in the form of an FALD backlight. HDR gaming is the main selling point of the PG32UQX, and IMO, is one of the biggest upgrades any gamer can make when it comes to pure eye candy and immersion.
.So it is better in 1 way then and not many lol. I mean sure if all you value is HDR brightness and are willing to sacrafice every other metric for that then ok. Some of us prefer a more balanced display.
I agree. Actually the OD-OLED is going to be really interesting. I hope that any sort of burn in can be mitigated as it is the only real downfall I see of that product. Well that and the 1440p resolution. After being spoiled by the PPI of 4k, its hard to go back. IMO 1000 nits is perfect and really should offer an amazing HDR experience.The Alienware QD-OLED has HDR as well... Low peak brightness, but also zero bloom.
To say either display is definitively "better" than the other is downright ridiculous. Both have many "features" that different people will have very polarizing opinions on.
Display HDR TrueBlack 400. Which means 400 nits for fullscreen white. 10% and less area peaks can go higher and likely hit 1000 nits.I could have sworn it was 1000. At 400, it won't even be an HDR experience, regardless of the panel.
I would say a huge difference considering the PG32UQX has been tested to be around 1200 nits at Full Screen and around 1600 at 10 percent. But with those OLED blacks, it will be a very interesting panel.Display HDR TrueBlack 400. Which means 400 nits for fullscreen white. 10% and less area peaks can go higher and likely hit 1000 nits.
It will likely be a fairly typical OLED HDR with less color dillution at high brightness compared to LG's WRGB. Which is to say that it will probably be better than like 99.9% of currently available PC "HDR" monitors but will be a bit dim in comparison to miniLED TVs and 32UQX.
I am very intrigued by this monitor. Should be a big step in the right direction for PC gamers.They are saying 1000 nits at 3% for the QD-OLED monitor. Additionally, one of the main advantages it has over wRGB is that it can achieve higher color brightness (even if the wRGB can get higher peak for white), so it will probably offer a better HDR experience than the LG OLED TV's... it might even better than the PG32UQX for HDR since it can achieve perfect blacks with supposedly decent brightness.
ok, finallu unboxed, i was waiting for my ddr5. this monitor is apart of a new pc build. comparing it to my acer. it's so much better, i can see the difference immediately, it's very similar to my oled TV but seems a bit sharper and crisper. the hum is very low on the fan heat sink. I would have move very close to the monitor to hear it. it's better than i thought it was going to be. I also like the blacks and the overall richness of the colors. it's also surprisingly light. i am using the display port/ my video card is a GTX3090 with 12900KF.
this is also what i am runningI can confirm that the PG32UQX will support 3840 x 2160 @ 144Hz with 12-bit color and HDR enabled. You need to have a 3000 series Nvidia card (has DP 1.4 ports) to support the DSC 1.2 compression. I have a 3080 (screenshot), 3080Ti, and 3090; these settings work on all three cards with no issues.
both have the same panel, reduce blooming=reduce highlight peak...so you can't have a win to win...if you prefer avoid bloom (only in specific cases) get a oled, but you lost the brightness hdr and other things like colour space, accurate colors (vs wrgb oled) etc... if you get a oled, take a look on 32ep950, because is a real rgb oled.Hello new here, but long time lurker.
I have the 32UQX but am interested in exchanging for this new Viewsonic monitor since I’m still in 30-day period. This monitor seems to have some additional ergonomics such as changing to portrait mode as well as a few new features, such as the aforementioned nvidia latency. GtG only slightly better at 3.4ms. Of course the price is about $400 less than UQX listing on Amazon. I was looking at the AW OLED as well but 1440p widescreen is a dealbreaker for me for several reasons. Anyone have their hands on one yet that can vouch for it or compare to UQX? I’ve never owned a Viewsonic so not sure about their QC. Also curious if the FALD algorithm has improved to reduce blooming. Thanks
is windows recognizing your monitor? it was pretty much plug and play with mine. I'm going to assume the issue since it's greyed out, is that windows is not recognizing your monitor as being hdr capable.
I don't think it makes sense to buy this when the XG321UG is available for much less $.
Yeah over here the opposite is true. Viewsonic is $2499 and can be had for $1879 as an open box refurb. PG32UQX is still $2999.That is the View Sonic and currently at ~3,000€ in Germany. The PG32UQX goes for ~2,700€ over the counter (and tomorrow it's Amazon Prime Day )
Well that's a different situation.Yeah over here the opposite is true. Viewsonic is $2499 and can be had for $1879 as an open box refurb. PG32UQX is still $2999.
Not many people can use the monitor right. It has Adobe color space by default. It is oversaturated in a way SDR looks better with YCbCr 444, even better than some other monitor's HDR.Hi y'all
I read the whole thread, found it interesting and decided to join the forum. Thank you for letting me be a part of the community.
The ASUS PG32UQX is discussed with a lot of controversy and I'd like to ask you if you think that it is the right choice for my use cases.
I play mostly games like Star Citizen, CIV, Wargame, Mass Effect, DCS, and rather rarely shooters. So it's pretty mixed and I'd like to have a decent display for gaming.
I work as a photographer and I need a monitor that is also suitable for image processing. Adobe RGB is for me less important nowadays but DCI-P3 will be more important in the future and the ASUS is quite good covering it. Homogeneity is always important but it might be okay.
I think you know all some reviews:
PRAD (in DE)
Since 2011 I'm using the EIZO SX2762W (that was an incredible allrounder) for which I'm searching a successor for.
PRAD (in DE)
In the long run I will probably aim for a second devices (ASUS Pro Art or EIZO CG series) but for now I need a device that can cover both.
The price for the ASUS PG32UQX dropped a lot so I'm considering it as an option.
HDR is really nice but AFAIK it doesn't much sense below a certain standard and the ASUS is in the top tier.
BTW: I'm using a MacBook Pro 2021 that has an incredible XDR screen where I cannot notice any significant blooming (but it has more than twice the number of fields with less than a quarter of the size). And for Star Citizen I could switch to SDR.
I've seen that there are also some alternatives but very few.
Hi and thanks for your reply. I would use the monitor calibrated for Adobe RGB or DCI-P3 though working with ProPhoto Color space. For gaming I would simply switch to SDR + HDR and for Star Citizen SDR w/o HDR.Not many people can use the monitor right. It has Adobe color space by default. It is oversaturated in a way SDR looks better with YCbCr 444, even better than some other monitor's HDR.
The backlight miniLED can sustain brightness but it is deeply flawed so the monitor has worse blooming than PG27UQ. But high APL performance is unbeatable.
APL means Average Picture Level. It's the brightness across the whole screen.Hi and thanks for your reply. I would use the monitor calibrated for Adobe RGB or DCI-P3 though working with ProPhoto Color space. For gaming I would simply switch to SDR + HDR and for Star Citizen SDR w/o HDR.
What do you mean by APL? I only know the very expressive programming language.
In case HDR wouldn't matter what display would you choose? Considering it needs to be suitable for professional image processing there is still not much choice.
The HDR monitors out there are not that many. Even the new Neo G8 is a not true HDR monitor in terms of brightness, not motioning it looks washed out.Sure you're not confusing most monitors with OLED TVs here?
Oh thanks, I didn't know that. That makes me looking forward to gaming (except Star Citizen ).The HDR monitors out there are not that many. Even the new Neo G8 is a not true HDR monitor in terms of brightness, not motioning it looks washed out.
Ture HDR monitors are only several FALD LCDs: PG27UQ/X27, PG35VQ/X35, PG32UQX, PRO XDR, etc.
APL means Average Picture Level. It's the brightness across the whole screen.
PG32UQX brightness in HDR won't drop like most monitors. It can easily sustain the brightness when an HDR scene has the APL from 300nits all the way up to 1200nits while most monitors drop brightness below 300nits in the same situation resulting in a dim, unrealistic, less impactful HDR performance.
ProPhoto requires a higher luminance level than Adobe RGB or sRGB too. PG32UQX is packed with a wide color gamut and high brightness. It can handle professional image processing.
But in the long run, you still need a professional monitor for photography. ASUS has an OLED PA32DC coming for SDR.
Since you are in photography. You should be able to use the camera to capture footages close to what human eyes perceive unlike the previous photos/videos across the forum.Oh thanks, I didn't know that. That makes me looking forward to gaming (except Star Citizen ).
Thank you. I didn't know the abbreviation.
Yes, but anyhow ProFoto isn't covered by any existing screen afaik, so I think it'll be fine for now. Later I'll add another screen.
So I ordered the screen for around 2250€. I think that's a fait price and I'll let you know what my impression is. I'm a bit afraid of the fan noise. We'll see.
Thank you so far!
I don't understand why people buy a HDR monitor without knowing how to use it. Or it is just another troll attempt to bash down the best HDR FALD LCDs that outperforms any other OLED or any other monitors not capable of true HDR.Hello guys!. I bought the xg321ug and want to test it with HDR gaming. What game do you recommend to try it with HDR? I played red dead redemption 2, but the .HDR is very bad.
