IMO it's already there. That is exactly the size, spec and feature package I want in a new monitor. I actually thirst for a monitor like that, more than a VR headset right now. I'll have to give Philips a peek this summer, when I'm shopping for a new monitor. What's really cool is how I can run a digital OA HDTV tuner, game console/BD-DVD player through a 4K HDMI splitter/switcher...Mobile via MHL...while running my PC through Display Port. And view them side by side. And without need of external speakers because of the built in stereo 7"ers! Hello 5.1 headphones for serious gaming. Those are the kind of convenience features I'd use a lot with a 43" monitor. I just hope these babies don't come in at nosebleed prices. If they're equivalent to a VR display in price...I'm going this route first. Even though VR will be very close behind (Christmas-spring 2017).
Oh man, now i gotta get that 10k Visa bill paid off so I can get all these new gear (1080 GPU's / 43" 4k ips / Denon Atmos/DTS:X) coming out
Great stuff man! Right now I am leaning Philips. Even though I have experience with Dell. But the Phillips have the Dell overmatched on price and specs (5ms & etc). I'm also leaning just waiting until "Black Friday" in November...when I'm certain I'll find the Phillips at Amazon, Newegg, or elsewhere in the $500-below range. But it is going to be very hard for me to wait this out until then. I'm hoping that by waiting until "BF", I'll be able to snag the 43" Phillips and an AMD R9 390X together for about the price this Monitor alone is listed at now. Should be doable as the new video cards from AMD & NVidia are starting to come out. WOWser!...it's great to be in PC gaming right now.
I'm ready for VR gaming and hopefully true 60hz 2160p gaming when I get my SLI GTX 1080 setup soon. I'm waiting for the Gigabyte G1's to come out and I'm staying away from this Founders Edition nonsense Nvida has going right now.
I don't know how much longer I can go without upgrading. The last 3-5yrs have been a real challenge for the industry IMO and nothing has really tempted me during that time. But now it seems there are many technologies (Monitors , GPU's, CPU's, DRAM) are moving forward with real performance increases.
I am trying to hold out until "Socketgate" is over and thing get more stable
yep! PC Gaming tech is entering a real live Shock & Awe phase. That typically comes around in 10-15 year cycles. IMO it is being driven by 2 things. 1) the massive shift to HD 1080p gaming/HDTV/Consoles (of the past 15 years); 2) and now UHD & VR Gaming. The next 15-30 years can be explosive in the gaming sector. That's why I decided to cool my jets just a bit on the upgrades. I tried to jump ahead of the curve in 2014 and got burned on VR tech. It moved so fast in development that it obsoleted me at the starting gate. So I slowed myself down this year to prevent myself from warehousing tomorrow's "tech trash". So I am waiting on the Vega 2 GPU's, new AMD CPU's and new Mobo's to hit before changing again. If I see a real hot deal on a R9-390X I'll snag it to mate with what I already have in the interim. And optimize it with the new 43" 4K/UHD monitor I'm grabbing between June-Nov (Black Friday).
But...while I'm 100% sold on the VR movement...it is just moving way too fast for these tired & retired old bones to keep up with. IMO the upcoming GPU-CPU-DRAM tech Maps are very impressive upgrades...but stop gaps on the VR side. Because...as Palmer Luckey/Iribe said back in 2014...VR will accelerate everything in the gaming & media world swiftly to 8k-16k (if successful). Needless to say there is nothing in the current usage pipeline that can handle even the bandwidth required (wires/wired/wireless/circuits or otherwise) that can deal that. Especially for something like Online Gaming. So I see the big hurdles being solved right now at the 4k threshold. So to my thinking...the upcoming 4k tech you referenced will allow me to be 100% satisfied with gaming and all of my games...in big screen UHD glory. While letting me dabble with VR before dropping the "Mic"...and saying...Barrelbelly out!
And away they go! VR...NVidia...AMD are breathing fire into the PC gaming world. I used to be a 100% NV guy. But jumped red a few years ago and love it. I just couldn't beat the price to value advantages built into the AMD setup. And the customization options were icing on the cake for me. I'm more of a core tinkerer with PC rigs v hard core. So these latest AMD GPU's look like the "Bee's Knee's" to me. ANd their new R7 based APU's will really energize the Console, Tablet, and Laptop gaming markets IMO.
