    What are the actual dimensions of the 49" one? I'm interested, but is it like 2x 27" monitors side by side, or what?

    I could use the 27" one. The others are too big for both my needs and wants.

    Now we just need a FreeSync compatible GPU capable of pushing all those pixels at those frame rates. Hint, hint, AMD.

    Why don't they make them both free and g-synch compatible?

    I believe that one thing excludes the other. The G-Sync module replaces the "scaler". That's the component that translates signals from the graphics card into pixels on the screen, if you will. FreeSync-enabled monitors on the other hand use scalers that implement DisplayPort Adaptive Sync, which pretty much is the official name for FreeSync (which is trademarked by AMD). It is said that implementing DP Adaptive Sync in a regular scaler adds very little extra cost, which is a reason that FreeSync monitors usually are quite a bit cheaper than their G-Sync counterpart.

    Anyway, unless nVidia decides to implement DP Adaptive Sync in its G-Sync module or allows 3rd party scaler manufacturers (e.g. Realtek, Novatek etc.) to implement the G-Sync protocol in their scalers you probably won't see a monitor that can do both.

    Re: Samsung intros HDR QLED Gaming Monitors with FreeSync 2

    I'm not sure about 32:9. I have that setup currently with two 16:9 monitors, and frankly, the outter edges are too far out to be of use for gaming. I think 21:9 monitors seem to be the sweet spot (unsurprisingly considering where the ratio comes from).

    "HDR" monitors, but no mention of static contrast of the brightness capability. I think what they're meaning to say is wide-colour gamut.

    Yay for FreeSync, I just hope Nvidia finally see the light of day... And add support for FreeSync! Who wants to buy a super expensive Gsync panel ay?!
