Illustration for article titled End of the innocence: New monitor unleashes new GPU

I completed Gunther’s upgrade with the new monitor that FedEx dropped of this morning. LG Gaming 32ish”, 1440p, 144hz to pair with the new 5700XT and Ryzen 3900X. Thanks Uncle Sam.

The head of household security was disappointed I temporarily put a box on the doggo bed in the spare room where my PC lives, but she got over it. The only downside to this model is it has some red gamer highlights on the back, but fortunately that all faces the wall. The grown up version of this display was more expensive.

First Impressions:

Wow. Coming from 27"1080p/90hz, this is a revelation. In general use/Oppoing mode, things are so sharp and there is so much room for activities on the desktop.

Pushed up to the edge of the desk for racing mode, the immersion is a whole lot better stepping up in size to a 32ish” class display. Firing up some F12019, holy shit is this better. So sharp, so big, so smooth, and Gunther, as always, makes a good room heater. With settings maxed at 1440p, the 5700XT maintains an average 134fps.

That’ll do.

Now that I tried it out, I can go back to folding tonight.
