LG has announced a new gaming-oriented desktop display, the 34-inch 34UC89G-B, which comes with a 21:9 aspect ratio and is compatible with Nvidia's G-Sync technology. 
 
This display comes with a 144Hz refresh rate and an IPS panel, offering a native resolution of 2560x1080. While this resolution is pretty low for a 34-inch display, it will allow games to run at high framerates with more modest PC hardware, which is arguably more important for a lot of PC gamers. 
 
The 34UC89G-B will come with a single DisplayPort 1.2 connection and HDMI 1.4a connectivity, with a three-way USB 3,0 passthrough on the rear of the display.

Because it is cheap. It literally all comes down to the height of the plastic. That is why we never went to 1200H on LCD monitors. Well, we did, but 1080p was the most popular (and cheapest) option.Quote

Yeah, I can understand that point. But 1080p on an 34" ultrawide though? That will just look so weird and silly.Quote

Yeah probably. 1080p has always been absolutely useless to me. Before TFT I had a 20" monitor made by Philips. CRT thing like. It was 1600x1200, so all of the emulator front ends I made (500 or more !) were made on that.

I bought a 1080p 24" monitor (still got it as it goes) and when I tried to use my layouts (the front ends I had coded) none of them fit the screen. The software did not scale, so I could not access the button panels to make them work lol. Yeah, I was super peeved at that !

It was only when I went to 4k about two years ago that I could actually sodding see all of them ! 1440p is fine too of course.

But yeah, we went from massive resolutions to some odd resolution with bugger all height. I spoke to my mate who is an engineer about it and he said when they cut the screens 1080p leaves more material aferwards off of a sheet to make more with out of the same batch. It's kinda like silicon wafers really, the smaller they are the more you get out of a wafer.Quote

Don't forget about couch gamers who play from a distanceQuote
