Yes, this is correct. I own this model and it comes with an 80W model
Well any free upgrade is always good. I'm still running my intel 2500K @ 4.7ghz. I have the 5P and its great so far.
I doubt it, I think it was a more marketing difference. I never saw my 5i CPU go over 65C, and if you undervolt, you can drop power anyway. The 5i is quite happy running at 115W with the CPU boosting to 4.5 Ghz and sustaining it, so I don't think thats why.
Wasn't the 80w version paired with Intel CPU to balance the load on the PSU because of the additional power draw of the Intel processor?
The 115W bios comes from the Legion 5P - works perfectly. Free upgrade. Loads of us did it a month or so back when it went down to £675/£700 on Lenovo's website.
Yeah frame times is what matters. Time between frames equals 1 divided by frame rate Going from 60 to 90 is 33 pc less frame times Going from 120 to 144 is 17 pc fewer frame times Diminishing returns on diminishing returns.
120Hz and 144Hz would be difficult to distinguish I think. 60 to 90 is good. 100-120 limited returns. 144Hz just appears to be the standard at the moment. This monitor is an extortionate ripoff.
Saw a YouTube on this monitor not worth money
LG BX/CX OLEDs are 120hz (and have G-sync/Freesync support) - an extra £1500 for 144 is surely not justifiable to anyone
It's probably the HZ that seperates them. 144 is more for gamers.
I wonder which Ireland partner as I've never seen this monitor for sale in Ireland anywhere
Stock was from a Gigabyte partner in Ireland and Gigabyte UK cover UK and Ireland. Warranty confirmation from Gigabyte UK below based on serial no and Amazon.co.uk invoice (y) . UK RMA Team <firstname.lastname@example.org> Hello, Please read full warranty details found here inc. pixels explanation: https://member.aorus.com/global/productwarranty Warranty is with the dealer for 1st year then years 2 and 3 are direct to Gigabyte. Regards Returns Admin Dept Pixel warranty is basically 4 or more bright pixels or 6 or more dark pixels, viewed from 35cm or more with screen at 200 lux (200 nits) for 36 months.
Arrived on Friday. No dead pixels, calibrated fine for SDR with DisplayCal and i1 Display Pro. Working great as games and GUI/Timeline monitor for serious apps with a 27inch LG 27UL600-W UHD IPS as viewing monitor. Using a dual arm stand with the 27inch LG UHD IPS above. G34wqc VESA mount is quite recessed, you will need spacers! stand - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08BYJL63R The supplied Displayport cable worked fine but swapped it for a 3m one https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08F56FNKT Using a GTX 1080 (until GPU prices calm back down) Gsync/Freesync works fine with games so far but needs disabling for Resolve, Blender, DxO etc. where large areas of 18% grey in the GUI can flicker at times. Used app settings in NVIDIA Control Panel - Manage 3D settings -Program Settings set Monitor Technology to Fixed Refresh (G SYNC compatible off) on a per app basis. So no problem really considering the price. Might try the CRU fix of limiting freesync range as the flicker might be LFC related. https://old.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/ei992a/aoc_cu34g2x_owners_im_having_a_bad_issue_with/fcr4526/ Potato quality pic
Ok, that makes more sense. I don't think it's fair to say that they can't be trusted. It's pretty common for people to draw different conclusions, but at least they publish the full set of data so you can draw your own if you like. I've also read 'best of' articles on there where I disagree with the conclusions so I know where you're coming from, but to be fair, 'best for gaming' is a generalisation too and it isn't just about motion unless you only care about FPS games. Saying VA is always worse than IPS for gaming is a bit like saying always buy a TN for gaming. I know some people just skim the conclusions though.
The tests are good. The reviews themselves are terrible. I still remember when they suggested that for example va monitors would beat IPS for gaming, or picked the bland Acer xk340ck as monitor of the year or something.

I mean the series s is unlikely to do 120hz at 1440p with alot of games, so 1080p 120hz is the best monitor to pair with the series s. And this monitor is one of the best, even hardware unboxed reviewing mentioned it's better than the aoc 24g2, which is considered by most to be the best. It has everything from good speakers to having the lowest input lag/response times. For the series X a 1440p 144hz would be the better choice, the series X is unlikely to do 4k 120hz on most games, u will only get the occasional indie title doing that, even the strongest pc graphics cards hardly do it. Ps5 doesn't have 1440p support so it has to run 1080p 120hz or 4k 60. it's up to the user to decide if they want resolution or frame rates, but if they choose frame rates, this again would be the go to monitor to pair it with as it's the best 1080p 144hz monitor. So it lacking hdmi 2.1 is no reason to vote this cold, and any hdmi 2.1 monitor would cost an absurd amount anyway and you would be lucky to find a game that runs 4k 120hz.this monitor is pretty much the go to monitor to pair with the ps5 and the series s at the moment.
I dared to mention it's great for ps5 and Series X/S (1080p 120fps,hdr)and was attacked by mindless zombies repeating "but no hdmi 2.1" "but no 4K 120hz"... (lol)
I literally have no clue why this is cold smh. This is one of the best 1080p 144hz monitors, if not THE best one. And for £200 is a bargain.
It will.... In indie and Esport games maybe (y) There is no magic for equivalent of Rtx 2070 to go 4K 120fps (lol) 4K 30-60fps that's the target for Sony and Microsoft, and 1080p/1440p 120fps (y)
They think PS5 is going to output 4K at 120FPS in the near future and I saw Box reducing to 199 too.

I think it's a great deal for a rtx 2070 razer blade. It comes with the same cpu as the new 3000 series blade 15.
I really love you guys mentioning 3060 for same price tag. I really do wish you would have a slightest chance of being right.
The stock is been coming and going. They had like new and very good condition last night when I posted the deal.
Given the Gigabyte G5 recently posted on here from Box, https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/gigabyte-g5-156-fhd-ips-240hz-i5-10500h-16gb-rtx-3060-512gb-m2-ssd-gaming-laptop-ps-3650403?utm_source=mappshare&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=3650403. has been delayed, how does this compare to that model?

https://www.coolblue.nl/en/advice/choosing-a-gaming-panel.html oldest technology out of the 3 available. I have also been looking for a gaming monitor and have been told to avoid VA at all costs. Seems to be IPS wins everytime
what is a VA panel and why don't you want one, please? sorry for the idiot question
was all in till i seen VA panel :(
Should I be out off by the VA panel? I’m guessing IPS will cost a lot more.
@paul.sidaway Monitor which matches ur budget and specs mate.

Do you wish you got the curved one instead of the flat one?
The non curve feels like two monitors joined together, you do movre your head more, but prefer for productivity.
how does the curved fair against the non curved? I bought the curved and really didn't enjoy it. it felt too close to my face. would a non curved be harder to look at the edges of the display?
Apologies MrSwitch, don't mean to hijack the thread but, for anyone interested that isn't desperate for 144Hz, there is a 100Hz version for ~£90 less: https://www.box.co.uk/AOC-CU34G2BK-34-UWQHD-FreeSync-100Hz-C_2869494.html https://www.cclonline.com/product/aoc-cu34g2-curved-gaming-monitor-34-inch-3440-x-1440-uwqhd-va-panel-amd-freesync-black-cu34g2-bk-308699/ I've been using the 100Hz version for about 6 months and, with Free-Sync enabled and G-Sync compatability turned on in Nvidia control panel, I honestly can't tell much real-world difference in games coming from a 144Hz G-Sync Acer Predator panel (which now acts as a rather expensive secondary screen). EDIT - additionally, for anyone that gets or already owns either version, the settings in this comment on a Reddit thread really help with getting the most out of the monitor (I started using the settings they suggest recently, and the difference to what I was using previously is night and day) https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/gsef1i/aoc_cu34g2xbk_icc_profiles/fs5d4rv/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3
The key things I did was to lower brightness to around 30, to download the color profile from here ( https://www.archyde.com/iiyama-g-master-gb3461wqsu-b1-review-the-cheapest-34-inch-uwqhd-144-hz-monitor/ ) and to increase a bit of Digital Vibrance on the nVidia panel
