    "they will use robust DisplayPort receivers from MStar, Novatek and Realtek in 144Hz panels with QHD 2560x1440 and UHD 3840x2160 panels up to 60 Hz."

    speaking as a gamer looking longingly at these new 21:9 curved 34" screens with a 3440x1440 resolution; will they be 144Hz or 60z, or something in between?

    The whole point is adaptable refresh right...

    Well, it's adaptable in whatever range the monitor is physically capable of.

    Currently they can't produce 144hz monitors at any higher than 1440p without it being prohibitively expensive and technically difficult - look at the ROG swift for example. So 4k at 144hz is a way off yet. But YAY for the news! Been wanting one of these type of monitors for a while now

    Well Display Port 1.3 has support for 144hz 4K monitors, when they eventually arrive.
