Don't forget Sony is still in the OLED game!

..... at least on the professional side of their retail

https://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/cat-mo...-oledmonitors/

The above could be the highest quality & reference-grade OLED display that one can buy.
Also, I bet the latest Hollywood flicks is being monitored & mastered with these Sony BVM series.

That's not news and doesn't convey any intention -- or more importantly any capability -- to do more.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)

Which was an old Samsung mobile OLED panel, that has now been replaced with an LCD in the latest hardware revision.

The best one is missing from your list OP. The BVM X-300, shipping march.
If I had unlimited cash I'd love one as my computer monitor.
Or the 56" version as TV if they make it

1000 nits brightness, 10 bit, 80% of Rec.2020 color

With 35,000 units sold they sadly won't get cheaper any time soon.

When someone has to start a thread to tell people to not forget that Sony is still in the game, then they no longer are.

Well the professional market is known for being quite unglamerous and yet being quite profitable as well. For example, I do believe that the majority of Nvidia profits come from their Quadro products.

One could make a witty remark saying that of course Sony is no longer in the game - they've stopped playing around with games and have moved on to real business of getting the work done.

Selling the same chips for 10x as much (or more) as when it has a GeForce label on it will do that for you.

Likely is binned higher though. I'm pretty sure Intel does that with their Xeon parts, and I believe AMD does the same thing with their server and Firepro parts as well.

I wouldn't downplay Sony Professional if I were you. BVM & PVM series represents the best & highest quality the OLEDs can offer.


I've seen calibrated CRT versions of Sony CineAlta BVM & PVM that is loved around in Hollywood studios. Post production people can finally breathe a sigh of relief because OLED-based PVM/BVM series finally matches (or even exceed) the CRT based CineAlta BVM & PVM display that was put out of production a decade ago.

No, in the case of NVidia, it is only drivers. Quadro cards are lousy gaming cards but they do offer the precision Pros needed when pair with special drivers.


Server processors have different architecture and chip packaging. That can't be binned differently because they are different chips from desktop processors.

In terms of raw performance yes it's the drivers, but I'm still pretty sure their professional parts are binned higher for lower power consumption and the like. Consider that for several months before the Titan came out, all "large Keplar" GK110 chips were being used in Tesla GPGPU cards.

What about the LGA2011-v3 Xeons vs LGA2011-v3 i7s? There are 8-core variants for both...

how many ppl actually bought those i7 or even afford one ? It's a rare CPU that Intel probably just picked a few left over Xeons and sell as i7.

Well there are 6-core Xeons and i7s as well. The i7-5820k is "only" $390 compared to the crazy $1050 8-core i7-5960x.
