    My thoughts exactly, but going to the 32:9 1440 standard would be difficult on one cable @ 144Hz, providing a controller can handle it.
    5120 x 1440 @ 144Hz is 1,064,683,200 pixels per second, or almost double what my 3440 x 1440 @ 120Hz does at 594,432,000 pps. (3840 x 1080 @ 144Hz is 597,196,800.)

    We'll see them eventually but right now this is about as good as it gets, and for things like racing games, width is way more important than height.
    Of course, there are things like the ASUS ROG PG27UQ which does 3840 x 2160 @ 144Hz but it isn't true 144Hz, from what I've read, and also costs about two grand.

    I fully agree though, until we get 5120 x 1440, I won't see myself using a 32:9. Quite happy at 21:9 just now.

    Getting reports of the well known VA powdery effect on darker areas and ghosting.

    Lots to be desired in this so called review, absens of both input lag and ghosting tests.

    Still a VA panel with all it's problems, though i hope they managed to mitigate powdery effect on darker areas and ghosting.

    BUT performance of HDR will be really interesting, if good it will raise the bar for HDR in gaming screens. Hopefully totally do away with VESA 400 HDR standard, it's a joke that only gives HDR a bad repp.
