    Re: LG teases its 32-inch HDR-compatible 4K monitor

    Looks promising, but as a gamer who isn't made of money, I would rather stick to good old fashioned 1080p 60fps for the foreseeable future, to get a longer lifespan out of the performance of the rest of my hardware!

    I totally agree, I would much prefer a 120Hz 4K monitor than having HDR. I have a suspicion that HDR has a lot more lag and slower response times due to the amount of extra data that needs to be processed.

    Look... Stop hiding all of the nice toys behind high prices. We ALL know that these companies could share the awesome but, instead, we're fed crappy low price screens. When will the madness stop?

    Question Re: LG teases its 32-inch HDR-compatible 4K monitor

    LG haven't exactly given much detail in this press release. Will have to wait 'til CES I guess.

    With DP 1.4, very high refresh rates, high resolution & HDR combined is possible - but I've only seen 1 monitor with such a connection so far and it doesn't utilize the bandwidth available at all...

    Edit: The monitor mentioned is the BenQ SW320 which at least has a 10-bit panel.
