  1. There is nothing attractive about that display for gaming. For productivity, I’d still argue it sucks because it’s too small physically. You’d almost have to use font scaling to use it, which makes the resolution less effective because of how it forces you to use larger application windows, etc.

  2. Or cheaper?

    I guess it’ll depend on how well it performs against its peers. At least it has VRR on the spec list, we’ll see if it’s even useful.

    What I will say is that it’s a moderate step in the right direction in terms of pixel density when it comes to scaling. Obviously you’d need at least 150% at normal view distances, but in my recent experience with my 32″ 4k at 150%, that results in a very, very sharp desktop!
