Your settings are limited by the capabilities of your monitor. Not all games have full ultrawide support, but many do. Without said monitor, the option won't appear.Joel D wrote: ↑17 Jul 2020, 02:15Yea I could see that. For me, its just too wide. Nothing even spits out a 32:9 image does it ? None of my games do. Never seen that option. No movies I know do. Don't really see the point. Wont non-32:9 content either look stretched or have black bars down the sides ? I just think its a touch ridiculous. I don't even see like that in real life, lol. I think 16:9 is a perfect sweet spot.
That said, if the monitor could do 2 16:9 images (like could I do dual desktop on it ?) then doing dual desktop on 1 monitor would be cool !

Can I ask you something - So I have a cable like that. I bought it as overkill. BUT it says 8k @ 60hz. But someone else told me to ignore descriptions and just go with speed transmission capabilities. Either way, I got a Vesa Certified DP 1.4 HBR3 cable. And I also got the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (and processor just as bad ass, brand new computer, windows 10 64, etc..) what are my limits with those things ? 8k @ ?, 4k @ ? 2560x1440 @ ?
Please let me know, as I'd like to know what's the furthest I can go with a monitor as it sits.. Thanks.
That will show you what's possible. 8k120Hz is possible with 8-bit colour, DSC and chroma subsampling (4:2:2 in this case), but I wouldn't recommend pushing past what DSC alone covers.
It's unlikely your 2080Ti will ever push far beyond 4k240Hz or 8k60Hz performance, and only then through either DLSS or massive graphical tweaks to boost frame rates. With RTX 3000 cards to be released in a couple of months, that's probably going to leverage the kind of graphical fidelity you might be targeting with 4k120Hz and up.
Quantum dot technology is not proprietary, but QLED is a Samsung term for their version of that, probably under trademark.Joel D wrote: ↑17 Jul 2020, 02:15Oh good to know about VA's. But I did read QLED was proprietary guess it was wrong, or its more like the name is Proprietary and the technology under a different name is just technology. ?? But either way, no sir, I definitely don't think IPS is king. I personally like OLED as it looks the best to date to me. Calibrates to true industry standards and is just best right now to me personally. But I did read the article to fill me in on other panels. Thanks for that.
This G7 32" does look interesting to me too. But besides all the specs, the question is, how does it really look in real life and how does it really perform ? I was excited to see it released just cause what it means is more tech is coming soon. This is a exciting day !
I would compare it a budget HDR TV, just with much better response times (and refresh rate). So you get wonderful rich colours compared to most monitors, but a tacked-on HDR experience. That being said, it looks like a VA that you could genuinely use for competitive (read: fast-paced) gaming, namely shooters.
