What’s the plans for the sizes? Usually there’s two type of people… 24" and 27"
LG 32GK650F-B … Asus i think not my sir.
Fair enough and I understand the reasoning behind it!
Could you clarify if you can use it for both charging and data transfer a la LG Ultrafine 5k screen from Apple/LG?
prices range from about EUR 350 up to 550
Ouch that’s expensive for a monitor!
Most monitors I’ve seen in the states are $150-$250
Only stuff higher is ultra-high-end.
Then again, most 150-250$ monitors are not 1440p, high refresh rate, FreeSync (potentially GSync compatible) maybe HDR, and have USB-C PD.
One of the closest ones I found where these:
BenQ GW2765HE (250€) https://geizhals.eu/benq-gw2765he-9h-lfmla-tbe-a1727765.html?hloc=at&hloc=de&hloc=eu&hloc=pl&hloc=uk
No HDR, No USB-C, No 165Hz
Acer Nitro VG0
No HDR, No USB-C, Just 75 Hz
FreeSync, 350cd/m², 100% sRGB
Both for 250€ ish…
I think especially the USB-C / PD is a nice argument if the monitor can go into the 300€ range. With more and more notebooks supporting PD it’s basically one cable to connect your notebook to your monitor.
Other note: A switch between DCI-P3 and sRGB in the Monitor itself would be nice for graphic designers as Windows can’t properly handle a switch between those 2.
Thanks for your inputs folks! Keep them coming. This really helps us get the ends. We ve just officially kicked off the development with our screen supplier and will have more updates on additional tweaks and features we can add! We will also make sure to answer your questions!
@Nicholas_Wilkie super helpful first post sir!
@TheGunnyPT both will be implemented. As for the thunderbolt we are evaluating extra costs added for having thunderbolt ports. Keep you posted
@iKirinin interesting ones!
@saltcafe that Acer looks like quite good value but seems to come without gsynch comparability certification
They support FreeSync
Absolutely true! But I think people spending 350USD + on a monitor could have Nvidia graphics cards too and therefore Freesynch wouldn’t cut it for them and they would need to have Gsynch or Gsynch compatible certification!
I’m not sure if this is possible, but why don’t you guys do something innovative and support both the AMD and NVIDIA camps? Now that would be a feature that would make your product stand out, and you did talk earlier about “making the firmware for the monitor” available … switch out one firmware for another and be able to support both camps!!!
I hate paying the Intel tax and the Nvidia tax and getting inferior product for more money. AMD has a very compelling product portfolio at the moment and it’s reflected in their share price.
nvidia cards can use free sync as well now
We are aiming for Gsynch certified Freesynch monitor. So both would be supported!
G-sync requires dedicated hardware.
Nvidia now also support all freesync monitors, some are “Gsync certified”, which are those they tested themselves and meet specific requirements. There is also G-sync 2.0, which again requires certain hardware to run. You can think of this as a dedicated CPU for just syncing, while freesync just uses software to control it.
I would be happy to create a similar breakdown for different countries if that would be useful?
Sure! That would be awesome. So far I think we can offer something quite special:)
Pixio recently released a 1440p 165hz IPS monitor for around $430 USD. I think it’s called the PX7 Prime or something
LG 27GL850-B $499
ASUS VG27AQ $429
This one would be slightly better so $550 is ok
