Kudos to TechSpot for crediting BlurBusters and the ones who found out via our contacts -- TFTCentral, etc.

EDIT: TomsHardware Italy and IT Hardware Poland posted similar articles plugging TFTcentral/BlurBusters for breaking the first twitter confirmations of this bad news.

Of course they're delayed. They need to sell stock of current monitors first, then make you upgrade again :mrgreen:

Any inside info on the 1440 240hz monitors? No full array local dimming there. They were expected to go in production quarter two. Are those monitors on track? I think these delays may have made my choice easier, but I'm concerned they might decide to delay these monitors too to boost sales of the premium ones.

I've been wondering about the 1440p 240 Hz monitors as well. I haven't been able to find any information about those in quite some time now. I think I might just break down and buy a 1080p 240 Hz monitor :P

Word of caution, with DisplayPort 1.4 you really want the monitor to support DSC compression to do HDR10 in 4:4:4 at 144hz. Otherwise you'll drop to 4:2:2 which sucks for PC desktop use.

Without DSC you are limited to 98hz with DP 1.3 / 1.4 in 4:4:4 with HDR activated. And I assume most if not all of these 4K monitors have some kind of HDR10 support, which frankly to me would be silly to not actually since since it's a huge image quality and realism boost.

I haven't seen any DP 1.4 displays use DSC.

Any anyway, at least for gaming, dropping down to 4:2:2 to do HDR 10-bit at 144 Hz 4K really isn't that big of a deal. I can't even tell the difference on my X27.

Oh I agree, for most games 422 doesn't matter. But I do tons of 3D stuff in windowed mode and don't want to pay for a 144hz monitor and only get to use 98hz out of it because it doesn't support DSC. And 422 for windows desktop is horrible, as we all know.

I hope DSC support in monitors comes out soon, if not I guess we'll all be looking at (cheaper) Freesync VRR TVs and monitors using HDMI 2.1 next year, and G-Sync hopefully wither away due to the Freesync over AMD card + Nvidia GPU for rendering hack. I've been looking into HDR10 FALD TVs, but it's a bummer there are no 4K TVs in the 40-inch range that have DP 1.4 inputs. 98hz w/ HDR10 4:4:4 is certainly much better than 4K60 with HDR10 in 4:2:2 for general PC use. In a cheaper Vizio TV it would be ideal. I might have to look into a TV-sized 40-inch monitor. Or maybe I'll just wait till next year to upgrade.

To be fair though, doing 3D work on the desktop at 98Hz is still quite nice.
