Because it's 360Hz, also 1080p is 2K, 2160p is 4K.

It's HDR10 and 1ms.

Nice find, @Freebush. Niche, but I know people that kill for High Hz panels.

P.S. It's IPS too, impressive.

Lol no, a 3080 can't do 1440p 360hz(Maybe on the few games like Valorant because you can get that in the 1000 fps range with current hardware but why would you want 1440p on a game like that anyway)

So you run at 640x480 to get 360hz :p

Either way.. Looks like you need multiple high end video cards to properly make use of this..

Really niche.. USD conversion incorrect or not, still expensive 700 dollars

Meh. I already own a 240hz monitor. Will wait for 480hz to become a thing before considering an upgrade. Decent option though for those who don't already own a high refresh rate monitor.

Hmm... There's 4 monitors I'm looking at right now, but this one may have put itself into consideration

When would they charge you for preorder? Immediately? Release date? Ship date?
And when would it actually ship, release date? Or later?
