NVIDIA’s New G-SYNC HDR Module Adds $500 to Monitor Pricing

The guys over at PCPer have disassembled the brand new ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ, which is a 27-inch, 4K, 144 Hz, G-SYNC HDR monitor that costs $1999. Upon inspection they found that the G-SYNC module inside is a newer one compared to the one that is used in 1st generation G-SYNC displays (which does not support 4K / 144 Hz / HDR). This module is powered by an Altera-made FPGA with the model Arria 10 GX 480.

This causes monitor manufactures to use 4K panels in QHD monitors when panel supply is low or monitor demand is high.

Display makers had to find a way to get these displays running at 4K 144 Hz, so what they came up with was chroma subsampling (YCbCr), which transmits the grayscale portion of the image at full resolution (3840x2160) and the color information at half the horizontal resolution (1920x2160).

NVIDIA Enables Support For 4K Netflix On GTX 10 Series Cards

Up until now if you wanted to enjoy 4K Neflix on your PC you would need one of the latest Kaby Lake processors because of certain DRM restrictions.
