Actually, there has been news. Apparently, they've been spotted in European online stores, with a pricetag of...

...

Wait for it...

...

...

Any guesses? ....

...

...

$3,000!!!!

As I mentioned, there was no way for Nvidia and its partners to amortize the cost of these 144Hz HDR panels into 27" monitors, so they simply priced them like 65" TVs. My advice: wait for the actual 65" BFGDs that are coming later this year at $3,500.

Good lord!!  WOW.  I'm not sure if you know it not yet or if it has even been released yet but do you expect the first release of these BFGD's to only come at 65' or 27' monitors.  I know it'll be tough to price them right but I'm looking for something in between. 

2019 will be interesting.  I think i'll hold off on Samsung's 2018 TV line but I will almost certainly get a top of the line 2019 Samsung TV assuming it has HDMI 2.1.

Pretty sure all we'll see this year are 27" and 65". They are surprisingly going to be priced pretty similarly. I agree that something in between would be ideal for desktop use.

Do you know what the response times are for these two new 27inch beasts?

Likely going to be 4ms like most other VA and IPS panels. But remember that response time is less important in the age of G-Sync monitors. It is so much better to be "in sync" than to simply respond quickly to inputs.

I'm still running that Dell SDG16-27 inch g-sync monitor and it has 1ms response time but it's a TN panel and after seeing other monitors that are IPS they basically blow it away with image quality.  I just want to make sure when I do upgrade to another g-sync monitor like these (eventually down the road) that I won't be at a disadvantage going from 1ms to 4ms (both have g-sync).  Otherwise I'm sure it'll be a major improvement for me going from a 2015 TN panel in pretty much every other area.

The new monitors will be better, period.
