                            Sometimes you make studies for years to make a premieum thing, but once you finish the work you will notuce that the differnce is nonsense between this premium thing and another normql thing that simebody else has made it easily without the deep and smart searching along with unique testing, this is the story between AMD and NVIDIA adaptive sync, I am pretty sure that nvidia is the premium choice while AMD is the other normal or budget choice, but because I love and apperciate premium work I love nvidia technologies pretty much over AMD, even if G-sync can deliver the same experience that AMD's FreeSync do, but far more expensive, I still prefer nvidias technology as tge premium choice :)
                            Great job from nvidia's engineers

                                      The setups all look kinda janky, like a panel could be failed because someone sneezed or an aeroplane flew by a bit low. It’s all well and good to have 40k equipment, but using stacks of printer paper or tape to prop up a panel during the test, kind wastes it all.
                                      “Just getting it done” is very different from “doing it well”.

                                          I might have missed it.. I just saw a lab, and you had full access, and they grantes you access, and showed you everything... so what was secretive, if they've shown it to you and basically everyone with an internet connection?

                                                                                        A few things ..

                                                                                        1 - I have that predator monitor that Linus first pointed to .. yaaay.

                                                                                        2 - I've seen impressive examples like this before of what companies do to make quality products but the truth is it was more PR than something substantial. Having said that, this behind the scenes video seems fairly legit.

                                                                                        3 - I'm still very skeptical that HDR is a thing that needs to exist. In examples I've seen before, the image comparisons show something that to me isn't depth so much as different colours. If displays before this weren't doing it right then they've ALL been getting made incorrectly and manufacturers have been lying to us about colour accuracy.

                                                                                        4 - $50,000 test rig with accuracy to 0.1mm which is sitting on a paper pad and resting up against some random foam packaging block, hmmm. That thing looked unstable like it could fall off.

                                                                                        5 - In the explanation about pixel values around 9:50 linus talks about guess work in calculating pixel value and also about look-up tables. Why do monitors need to do guess work?
                                                                                        Couldn't they just add that data into the look-up table?

                                                                                        6 - What's in the suitcase? ಠ_ಠ
