When is HDR not HDR?

LG releases their 24:10 38WK95C Ultrawide FreeSync Monitor

Have you ever wanted a 4K monitor that wasn't 4K? Something that is perhaps a little shorter and offers an ultra-wide aspect ratio of 24x10? Well, now it looks like LG has the monitor for your with their huge 37-inch 38WK95C, providing a resolution of 3840x1600 and support for AMD's FreeSync technology.  

This display utilises an IPS panel with a grey-to-grey response time of 5ms, with LG offering a 75Hz refresh rate, which is higher than the 60Hz refresh delivered by LG's previous 3840x1600 displays. LG has not specified the exact variable refresh rate (VRR) window of this display at this time. 

Strangely, LG markets this display with HDR10 support, despite the fact that a 300 cd/m^2 brightness and sRGB colour are listed in the display's specifications with 10 bit (8-bit+FRC) colour. The "HDR 10" support of this monitor does not have the specs to back it up, which means that HDR content will not offer a meaningful visual improvement over standard SDR content. 

This display will support inputs from HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2 and USB Type-C, with the screen also offering dual 10W speakers, a headphone jack and two integrated USB 3.0 ports. This display uses a curved panel, but LG has not specified the radius of the curve at this time. 

LG releases their 21:10 38WK95C Ultrawide FreeSync Monitor

 

This display is set to be available at retailers soon, with an MSRP of $1499.99 in the US.

Well here you go Dice. Now I expect you to buy this considering you said you wanted a ultrawide by :10 ratio instead of :9Quote

Not sure why LG is trying to reinvent the Wheel here, 24:10 is almost the exact same thing as 21:9... If you do a simple rule of thirds you'll find the difference is in the neighborhood of a mere 0.28...Quote

No, the sooner Gsync is abandoned and Nvidia are forced to adopt the open standard the better. Then FreeSync will become standard on literally every panel within a few years.Quote
