                          I've been SO waiting for this monitor, I wonder if Asus will send me one over because unless you are a well known youtuber, who can afford one especially at $3599 AUD ?

                                It’s pointless! “The long awaited” is still not here! At this point LG is just days away from releasing their 38GL950G-B, which at 175hz with nano IPS does me just fine!
                                I had decided that Asus was going to take my money, up to 3 grand for this monitor, but with LG just around the corner at 2 grand, 38x16, and 175hz, Asus lost my business. This all coming from a die-hard ASUS fan who built one of the first 6k setup with the original 144hz rog swifts...(sp33d3ple)
                                Real disappointment!

                                                            I think I'd stick to 4:4:4 and just crank refresh for E-sports, or go full 12 bit HDR for some sexiness. Then again, I can't afford this monitor and don't have the rig to run it at 200hz, anyway. And, honestly, I'm a 120hz master race guy because it scales perfectly with everything. 24fps? Yep, even scaling. 30fps? You betcha. 60fps? DUH! Looks like we're all good.

                                                            Might as well have just sold it always in 4:4:4 and 120hz with 12 bit and HDR, and only leave the full array dimming as the option. Though, perhaps ultra-low motion blur strobing would make it a bit more useful for E-sports after all that, maybe have adaptive strobing so it can even vibe with adaptive sync. Or, better yet, adaptive full array strobing and dimming so the ultimate gamer could have full 12 bit HDR 4:4:4 at 120hz with zero tearing or motion blur. Now THAT sounds like an upgrade to me!
