                        Love y'all's videos, but while I realize there was probably fan noise in that test bench room the guitar music in the background was really distracting

                          BFGD doesnt stand for "big format gaming display"....it stands for "big fucking gaming display". I know because I was assigned to the R&D engineering team in QA testing.

                            The funniest part is, that somebody got bored at work, wanted a challenge and made the Biggest F***** Game Display to keep busy. xD Well they made it interesting.

                                I have seen quite a few people asking for a list of G- sync monitors and which one are on the failed list, you can go here (https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/) and try to find your monitor, if it is not on the list
                                then it did not make the mark.

                                              A few things ..

                                              1 - I have that predator monitor that Linus first pointed to .. yaaay.

                                              2 - I've seen impressive examples like this before of what companies do to make quality products but the truth is it was more PR than something substantial. Having said that, this behind the scenes video seems fairly legit.

                                              3 - I'm still very skeptical that HDR is a thing that needs to exist. In examples I've seen before, the image comparisons show something that to me isn't depth so much as different colours. If displays before this weren't doing it right then they've ALL been getting made incorrectly and manufacturers have been lying to us about colour accuracy.

                                              4 - $50,000 test rig with accuracy to 0.1mm which is sitting on a paper pad and resting up against some random foam packaging block, hmmm. That thing looked unstable like it could fall off.

                                              5 - In the explanation about pixel values around 9:50 linus talks about guess work in calculating pixel value and also about look-up tables. Why do monitors need to do guess work?
                                              Couldn't they just add that data into the look-up table?

                                              6 - What's in the suitcase? ಠ_ಠ

                                                      wouldnt all that testing mean that some gsync monitors shouldnt have unbearable blacklight bleeding?

                                                        What are the advantages of GSYNC compared to something like RTSS Scanline Sync option?

                                                                                          A simple emissive MicroLED1000Hz+ display would remove all this need for complexity, since you'd no longer need VRR and no backlight either. /dream
