    Whats hilarious is all the complaining about 27 inches. A huge monitor at one point was anything over 16 inches. 32 and 34 inch monitors have not been around long at all so the norm for large monitor is still 27 inches which is still pretty big and at this point the fastest. There are only few, as in Two 34 inch monitors at 3440x1440 that hit 100Hz and none higher. Thats the Acer predator X34 and the ASUS PG348Q.

    Soemthing else to keep in mind is for 4K you are going to need to cough up the $$ for a pair of 1080s in SLI to have decent frame rates. So just looking at a monitor and GPUs you are pushing $2500-$3K

    Well as far as screen size goes, some of it is relative personal preference. It also depends on how you sit and what game types you are playing plus resolution.
    Ideal screen size and distance will be different if your leaning forward playing with keyboard and mouse vs sitting strait up or leaning back in a chair with a yoke and throttle playing a flight Sim or racing game. I'd say 27 inches isn't bad...just minimum at this point especially in 4K.
    My Titan x (Pascal) does just about every optimized game at 60 fps with only a few dips into the low 50's at ultra settings at 4k. So we're there at least as far as 60 fps gaming at 4k with a single gpu is concerned.
    Those considering dropping $1500- $2000 on these new 144 hz HDR monitors probably plan on having them for at least 3-5 years if not longer. I don't think Nvidia Volta will get us to 120-144 fps gaming in 2018 but I see no reason to be believe we won't be there buy the end of 2019 or 2020.
    So this monitor is basically futur proofing what ever gpu we'll by in 2-3 years.

    I think with the announced (via someone's video) $2K asking price, I'm tapping out of this one. There's no way in hell I'm spending $2K on a 27" panel, 4K or otherwise. Asus is smoking something very strong if they think people are going to be lining up to pay $2K for this panel. They're out of their minds.

    The problem is, there's only one manufacturer making the actual panel: AU Optronics. And my gut tells me they were heavily subsidized by NVidia to make this happen. Recall at CES that the LCDs from Asus and Acer were not at their respective tables, but instead at NVidia's. That tells me NVidia probably had a lot to do with their creation, and we're probably not going to see other panel manufacturers (ie: another AU Optronics) making other options.

    At least for a while.

    Yeah, the price is quite high. The other HDR monitor, the PA32U model should be even more expensive.

    I agree, that's crazy! I have been waiting for price and release date info on this for some time. I have a Predator X34 and it's great, it's just that it side panels for XB1S when I play on that but looks good for PC. Also it isn't 4k. The size doesn't bother me so much, but the price point of $2,000 is something I can't justify at all. I was thinking it would be $1,300-$1,500, as sickeningly high as it is, I thought that's where it'd end up being a new product and tech offering.

    32 inch variants of 4k 144hz panels start in Q1 2019 so expect to see these releasing in Q2/3 of 2019 but by that time I will just wait on a oled 4k 120hz tv to replace my 60hz 4k tv and keep the 27 inch 4k hdr

    This is all rumored at this point, right? Nothing is confirmed?
