In the computer hardware world where we are generally lucky to know about a product for 6-months, the PG27UQ is a product that has been around in some form or another for at least 18 months.

The typical brightness of nits is still higher than the measured peak brightness of any other HDR monitor we have taken a look at so far, an impressive feat.
Of course, brightness isn't the only important aspect of HDR. While it isn't the absolute highest claims of color reproduction we've seen on a display, these numbers still represent color accuracy in the top echelon of pc monitors.
For clarification, the 98Hz limit represents the refresh rate at which the monitor switches from 4: While this shouldn't affect things such as games and movies to a noticeable extent, 4: For more information on Chroma Subsampling, see this great article over at Rtings.
