    So the g-sync version, what do we reckon the price will be? £1500?

    No price and no availability date... Not really a launch then! These have been displayed at shows for over 6 months now, but no sign of availability.

    Nvdia should SIMPLY support free sync just like OpenCL

    Yep.
    All they need to do, if they really want to avoid calling it Freesync and associate with AMD, is just create a "Geforce Adaptive Sync Certification Program", charge a few quid to check products match their specs.
    It's in the VESA standard so they really don't have to spend all that money on crazy FPGAs.

    Re: LG launches UltraGear 34-inch ultra-wide gaming monitors

    I think (don't hold me to it) I read somewhere that they were having problems with getting the g-sync version to meet the quality control levels required by Nvidia. Which of course, leads to questions about how good high refresh rates will appear on the freesync one (overshoot possibly?).

    I also read that the HDR nvidia g-sync unit is something silly like $500 cost price. So not supporting HDR means you can use the cheaper unit and not price yourself out of the market.

    I'm really interested in this screen, but despite having an nvidia card, I'd be tempted to go freesync and hope that one day nvidia supports it (or with their current prices, switch to AMD now their Linux support is reasonable).

    Re: LG launches UltraGear 34-inch ultra-wide gaming monitors

    Freesync has a higher refresh rate than G-Sync, and G-Sync is suppose to be superior?

    Devil is in the details.

    GSync has more stringent QC checking.

    Re: LG launches UltraGear 34-inch ultra-wide gaming monitors

    Aye, all very well having a 144Hz panel if the pixel overshoot and dropped frames are so terrible that you might as well be running at 100Hz. Not saying that is what's going on here, but there are plenty of lower quality panels out there with freesync.

    It's the same with anything. Open standard tech can be in a race to the bottom, where as controlled tech can be tightly controlled. Look at the Apple model, they're more expensive, but generally produce a good quality product (maybe less so these days now they're trying to stay appearing innovative).

    With a freesync monitor, you run the risk of it being rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish as there are no requirements for it to be any good. With g-sync there is that requirement. That doesn't mean that g-sync is any better, just you're supposed to be more likely to get a good experience with g-sync over freesync. I haven't tried either. I want a g-sync as I've got an nvidia card, but they simply don't do high framerate IPS panels in reasonable sizes etc. This is the first one that has tickled my interest - but the g-sync stuff makes me wonder how much better will this be than the X34p?

    Freesync2 does come with more stringent standards, and a more expensive certification process in consequence.

    Re: LG launches UltraGear 34-inch ultra-wide gaming monitors

    The question you have to ask yourself is, do the improvements in user experience amount to $500-800 (or more if you include the GPU cost) difference in price.

    In most cases, certainly my own, I would suggest the answer is no, they do not.

    Yeah I've got the AOC ultrawide g sync 120HZ, that was £735, I think Acer's Z35 is £700 right now. A few more HZ with the addition of HDR, I can't justify that if it comes north of £1.2k which it surely will.
