I've been on the hunt for something to replace my Ultrafine first gen and everything has fallen a bit short so far until this...

https://www.lg.com/uk/monitors/lg-27GN950-B

4K AND high refresh rate.

Just thought i'd share as others may be interested in what looks like the Ultimate monitor.

@eightarmedpet, Looking forward to seeing your experience with this new Ultragear 4K monitor! HDR600 may work well in macOS.

@itsage, I did some more digging on it and it looks to share the panel with the crowd designed EVE monitor, which I really like the look of. Whether it sees light of day or not is another question.

@eightarmedpet, you shouldn't tempt people like this :p

4K + high refresh rate would be amazing to have, though I would prefer a less gamery look. B&H shows availability starting from Sep. 02 in US:

@mac_editor, I know right? It's pretty much the holy grail of monitors. I can't use sub 4K and I would like more than 60hz without any garish red lights or flaming dragons (like current designs).

 

This is the EVE with the same panel... https://evedevices.com/pages/spectrum/

 

At least 2020 should give us new monitor and gpu tech! Not quite a fair trade off for the first half of the year but still...
