The last monitor he had I think was only freesync compatible. Not sure how that even works. But to me it's silly to buy high-end monitors lose half their value the moment you plug a console in it.

(also someone told you are English, and I feel dumb )
It was gsync compatible, which is pretty much the best certification you can get for a freesync monitor.

The newer GSync modules are all FreeSync and VESA VRR capable.
thats good to know, just seems redundant.

GSync hardware module is still superior to VESA VRR/FreeSync, so there is still a purpose to having the hardware module. FreeSync is much closer in quality to GSync than it was two years ago, but still not quite, and that makes sense since GSync is A) more expensive and B) a hardware module

I think the module is currently the only way right now that you can get VRR and FALD on non-oled displays, but I might be wrong about that.

If a display is G-sync compatible certified, it means it has passed more quality checks than simply being VRR/Freesync capable. This generally includes things like a wider VRR range and no flickering or other anomalies.

Technically the G7 has FALD and VRR/Gsync in QLED without the module. At least to my understanding though I keep local dimming off to avoid any possible flickering issues.

Correction: See post below. It does not have FALD.

The g7 and g9 only has 10 edge lit dimming zones, my LG has 12.

So no FALD.

I just hope I notice the extra sharpness on this TV, ofcourse the perfect black and HDR helps a lot.

But resolution to size comparison even though my monitor is 2560x1080 the PPI is only 10 less than a 4K at 48" due to the increase in size, just hoping that because it will be about foot and a half further away that it will look "sharper".

Worst case it will look a little sharper but be a much bigger screen, as long as it doesn't get blurier .

The biggest difference with larger screens and 4k I like is in the details. Everyone raves about pixel density, but if your monitor is too small to actually see the details, I doesn't matter so much, IMO. Sure, it's crisp and sharp, but the small details are hard to make out.

As long as you're back far enough that you can't see screen door from the pixels, its going to be fine.

Just as the larger the screen you further back you need to sit, the smaller the closer.

Nothing has come close to the 27" 4K I had for a short period. It was incredible how much the details popped.

I didn't realize Game Pass has Doom Eternal now. Downloaded and installed last night. Playing 4K, 100-120fps on the 48" OLED is just


It's so awesome.

I checked out a friends 27" 4k, and it was neat for a couple minutes. Sure it was sharp, but it was too small to make out any of the small details. Like intricate armor in Assassins Creed for example.

Any of you guys using the CX48 with a 1080 or 2080(pre hdmi 2.1)? How is the monitor at 4k60? I obviously dont have a 3080 yet and if I were to purchase it how is it at 4k60(I think it 1080tis support 4k60 4:4:4 on its HDMI spec)

I used it with a 2080 and you could run 4:4:4 4K60 and 2K120. The TV upscaling was fantastic at even 2K.

How does 2k120 look when compared to full 4k at monitor distances?


Which did you run when you had your 2080? 4k60 or 2k120?

When I fired up Doom Eternal last night, for whatever reason (probably being a Bethesda title) the game resolution auto changed to 1080p and the LG changed to 60hz. I didn't understand it. I didn't notice at first, but I played for about 5-10min at 4K 60hz. Something felt off to me (probably Gsync not working). I closed the game down and reapplied 120hz, fired the game back up and was absolutely butter smooth from that point.

4K, 60hz isn't bad by any means. But after coming from 120hz you can totally tell the difference. Until you get a 3080/3090, 60hz is completely doable though.

You could always just run 1440p, 120hz until you do get a new 3000 series? Like KAC said, these LG's have some strange AI hardware built in that does a fantastic job up-scaling for lower resolution/standard defiinition type signals.

I think allot of that was due to the scaling looking like hot garbage on monitors. So you never really wanted to stray from native resolution. Allot of the TV's though have had pretty decent scalers for awhile though.

2080 was weak for 4K and I like my FPS. I ran 2K120 but I was 4-5 feet away so for me the IQ was perfectly fine. I have the 55 CX btw.

The video is not for you maybe
The high res monitors got very cheap and people tend to rush and buy them without thinking about the price for the infrastructure needed to runs games smoothly on them.If you buy a 4k monitor for the next 10 years you have to buy flagship video cards that costs ... flagship prices

Oh we take it in, that's just the point of PC gaming.

You get what you pay for, you can have amazing cutting edge visuals but it will cost you more, or you can have not bad visuals and it will cost you less, or you can have wtf my eyes and it will cost you very little.

Also 1440P is easy to run on pretty much any potato GPU there is, maybe not with Ray Tracing but certainly standard rasterization.

4K is demanding sure, but without ray tracing you're going to get 60fps + with pretty much most games and a RTX 3080, with Ray Tracing maybe but depends on the game, DLSS setting, and how much ray tracing is involved.

1-2x more generations and 4K will be a doddle, unless ps5/xsx start releasing some serious powerhouse games.
