Well yeah it's literally designed with gaming in mind. Good luck finding a 4K ultrawide of any kind above a 75hz refresh. Common consumer grade graphics aren't powerful enough to handle that.

Lots of stuff on the inter webs about flickering at high refresh rates. I bought one 6 months ago and my experience was if I use the DP cable that comes with it, it's fine, but if I used a 25ft DP cable from Amazon, it flickers at over 85 Hz. I had two cables that had the same problem, but one was worse than the other and turning the cable around actually affected it slightly.

All in all I'm pretty happy, but I'm a little frustrated I can't put my PC where I want and the colors are a little more washed out compared to my flat 34" LG.

This is the better version of this monitor and the price is right. I paid full price a year or two ago and love it. The stand sucks though so you may need to allocate that $100 to an arm style upgrade.

Did they fix the flickering? What is their dead pixel policy?

Did you try overclocking to 120hz with gsync on?

To me it seems pretty low resolution. 3440 x 1440? less than 4K resolution in both dimensions. Probably good for gaming, but not for photoshop type work.

Yes, this is less than 4K, but if you want gaming monitor, this is it. If you want a photoshop monitor, there are better pre-calibrated ones out there.

I own this monitor and a 1080 ti. I'd say 1080 ti (or the 2080 now) is the bare minimum required to play games on this monitor. If you want gaming on 4K, you need to spend $1200 for 2080 ti.

I have, and there are zero issues for me. Flickering only happens if you set monitor to "FAST" mode.
