75hz?!? Ultrawide 21:9 freesync monitor [LG 34UM67]

Talk about AMD's FreeSync and VESA AdaptiveSync, which are variable refresh rate technologies. They also eliminate stutters, and eliminate tearing.

one day the market will get tired of increasing horizontal fov
and manufacturers will stop listing aspect ratio in the specs
and start advertising the vertical heights of their screens
but in centimeters because 10 inches sounds too small

Ultrawides are amazing. Its like discovering gaming all over again, its THAT enjoyable. But you have to have tried one for more than a day and WITHOUT preconceived notions up the ass. And you will be converted.
I hope you are not trying to champion a single, unified standard. I cant think of a more backwards way of thinking.

I personally think, we need two standards in screens. A 24:10 one, (rounded up 2.37:1). And a 16:10. That should make everyone happy.

That article is very misleading. In the end it only says one model - 34um67 - which according to the name is 34" 2560x1080.

Currently there are
29um65 = 29" 2560x1080
34um65 = 34" 2560x1080
34um95 = 34" 3440x1080

Also curved ones with the name ending in 85, 97 but lets ignore those right now. I think you see why its safe to assume the upcoming monitor is a 34" 2560x1080. Which is good, because it will cost sub 500EUR, meaning many gamers can afford a HUGE, 21:9, freesync monitor. Really thankful to LG about making that their first release.

Let me guess: only 60Hz, right?

Those 1440p 144Hz IPS monitors can't come sooner.

Is there any high refresh rate monitor with freesync planned? I wonder how it compares to G-Sync.
CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K @ 4.3GHz
GPU: Gainward Phoenix 1080 GLH
RAM: GSkill Ripjaws X 1600MHz CL7
Motherboard: ASUS Z87-A
Monitor: Dell S2716DG

what i'm saying is that eventually monitors will be wide enough relative to our viewing distance that it makes no sense to increase the aspect ratio further. then they will start increasing vertical height and we'll have high res 30+ inch 3:2 monsters.

No offence, but it seems to me you do not understand why people have even taking a liking to the new 21:9 aspect ratio.
I can assure you its not because the monitor "looks" or "is a little" bigger.

Sony is showing off a 8k TV at CES. Would you consider that to be enough res? and you wont have a problem it being 16:9?

tell me your order of preference:
assume each monitor is viewed from 25inches away

a)16in wide 9in high
b)21in wide 9in high
c)16in wide 12in high
d)21in wide 14in high

I can respect how impressive the LG monitor is, and it may very well be Ultimate for some... even if it is not for everyone.

For one, it is sometimes preferable over having surround monitors, having no bezels, while not using up too much of a desk. Slight FOV distortion occurs, but that can be less distracting to some than the hassle of multimonitor. It's not ideal for all use cases but there are many use cases where ultrawides really enhance the gaming experience. I can totally respect that, and it is definitely the Ultimate gaming display for certain people.

It may not be ideal to a computer programmer or sponsored professional competition type usage, but it's a hoot for simulators, car racing, recreational gaming, for those people more immersed by wider FOV than by clearer motion or minimum theoretical possible latency, etc. I certainly totally respect that.

I know that there's no perfect "Better Than 60Hz" technology for everyone... One person's compromised display can be another person's ultimate display.
