New 4K 120Hz: Wasabi Mango UHD430

Postby Chief Blur Buster » 11 May 2018, 11:25

Heads up... There's another 4K 120Hz display in town.

Currently, I have confirmed from many sources that this is the real deal -- true 120Hz at 4K.

Unlike the UHD420 (an older 4K that only did 120Hz at 1080p) -- it's the new UHD430 which does indeed do 120Hz at 4K according to several sources I've reached out to (including someone who posted YouTube proof of TestUFO who replied to me). So we're declaring this display legit. It is a 43 inch 4K 120Hz IPS HDR gaming television (400 nits, 1200:1 contrast), with two DisplayPort 1.4 ports and three HDMI 2.0 ports.

Seen on this manufacturer's page, it is targeted to domestic market in Korea but one Korean eBay seller is starting to sell them.

There's now a blurbusters.com post -- there is apparently YouTube video proof too.

Although i don't plan on buying 4k120Hz or 4k144Hz anytime soon, it still looks great. Pricing also looks good, even when you take into consideration additional customs/vat charges, at least compared to what Asus and Acer will charge for their 4k144Hz monitors. Someone already even bought one unit yesterday on ebay. @Chief, do you think that these local companies from Korea/China might try to expand beyond their domestic markets and try to compete for international customers in the future ? It would definitely bring the prices of gaming monitors down i think.

One problem i have with these high hz 4k monitors is that all of them will use HDMI 2.0 and not HDMI 2.1... but at the same time i think it came down to timing, and they already had everything done and prepared so they couldn't implement newest HDMI standard. I am sure next generation of these monitors will have HDMI 2.1 instead of HDMI 2.0.

Why would you want 2.1? Overclocking?

Figured that I post a link to a supposed review of the Mango UHD430 120Hz 4K Monitor (note that the original is in Korean).
Also, I will link the same video that Chief Blur posted in his story about this monitor supposedly being in 4K 120Hz legitimately (more on this in a moment).


Original (Korean): https://gigglehd.com/gg/review/2861985

Translated: https://translate.google.com/translate? ... t=&act=url

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipWH2uvGYnQ


Notice that some of the pictures that the reviewer posted of the monitor's front entirely in frame seems to match up with the video. In particular, notice the silver beam that is just to the right of the center of the monitor in both the pictures and video, as well as what appears to be a flowery design near the bottom left of the monitor in both the written review and video.

So it would seem all the more likely (but still not 100% confirmed as of 5/14/18) that the Mango UHD430 was indeed running at 4K 120Hz in the video.
The next lingering question would be if only one DisplayPort 1.4 port, instead of two, is be necessary to run 4K @ 120Hz on this monitor. I saw a few posts of people contacting the Ebay seller, and the seller responding by saying that only one port is necessary. But didn't seem too concrete yet.


Here is the overclock.net forum where OP MiRai messaged the seller (etradekorea), asking about the monitor.

UPDATE (5/18/18):

After reading the (Korean) review a bit more carefully, I see that some of the pictures that involve the monitor's OSD also show the current resolution and refresh rate under "Main Input." It is listed as follows:

Input Source: DP1 (assuming DisplayPort)
Resolution: 3840x2160 @120Hz

Also of note is that in these same pictures, there seems to be no other input devices connected to the monitor, like under "Second Input", "Third Input", and "Fourth Input".

So overall, not only is this monitor all the more likely running true 4K @120Hz, but it also seems very likely that it is doing it off of one DisplayPort Cable.

I'm not sure why you would need two cables, those ports can handle the bandwidth just fine.
