I seem to have better luck removing the NVidia from the SSDT, and using the new Whatevergreen kext. I am using a GTX 980 ti though.
After my third Nvidia related kernel panic today, I am officially done trying to make these cards work. It's heartbreaking, because I really do need CUDA for my Adobe applications, but the constant KPs are just not acceptable.

@dustinwilson what did you use to get the new HEX number in your "Replace" section specific for your card? I am having the same issue with my Nvidia audio not implementing. I know how to convert a number into HEX, but in reading through the forum I am not tracking on what identifying number from the card do I use to convert into HEX for this replacement to work.

Hey @Zephlon ,

Any reply? I have the same issue.

Cheers.

Well, I have this LG, and while it's not curved (I wish it was) https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-43UD79-B-4k-uhd-led-monitor., I've had no issues with the HDMI or DP ports with it. IF I didn't have it, I would go for the 38" curved...still, I'm tempted.....that looks fantastic (two of them, maybe a bit big...??). That just looks almost perfect (for Editors, that is...)......Have you considered going for two 34" curved?

I should note that I tested this monitor (my 43") in 5K mode with SwitchResX, and it worked, and looked great. So, I could go 5K if I wanted to....

I would totally get dual 5k monitors that's 16:10 or 16:9...but thought for $750 the 38" Ultrawide was a good deal. 34" Wasn't on sale so didn't get that.

I'm mostly in Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign/After Effects all day long, am curious how this is going to work out since I have been using dual monitors for so long.

But yeah 2x38" Ultrawides might be way too much and not sure it would even fit on my desk.

I went back and forth for awhile with monitors. I ended up deciding on 3 Benq p3200u 4k monitors.
After figuring out the proper angles they fit on my desk no problem.
I like the setup a lot for my workspace. It is nice to have them setup so that they are all 90 degrees to my view from where I'm sitting.
I never cared for running 2 monitors whether I had them side by side or one or the other. Although one over the other is nice if you have limited desk space.

Like you, I only know about the 34" 5k version that only works with Thunderbolt 3 though and not DP1.4 (which is not super mainstream yet)...

The 34" 5k is not even out yet. At least in the USA, it might be out in Europe.

the 34" 5K has both a TB3 input and DP1.4 you see it in the spec (https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-34WK95U-W-ultrawide-monitor) it was also confirmed by a LG agent on the LG forums where they announced it.
but just looking at a few store here, they show it as available on January 1, 2019.. Why would you bother announcing something so much ahead of time and cannibalise your own sale is beyond me.

OK. I found this reply by LG in some other forum. Seems that the LG 34WK95U-W really also implements DisplayPort 1.4 besides 1x TB3 and 2x HDMI..

Yes, sir! Nice! :thumbup:

They delayed it a few times.

It’s funny because they’ve been providing Apple with 5K panels for years, and they can’t even make one for themselves. (Except the Ultrafine 5K)

Here in Germany the expected availability in nearly all online stores seems to be "in approx. 3 weeks"..

@izo1, I guess that's the perfect display covering all your needs. :thumbup:

TB 3 and DisplayPort 1.4 hopefully will prevent all possible incompatibilities with your Vega.

The native 5K2K screen resolution moreover perfectly suites your Adobe software requirements.

I am tempted to sell my LG 38UC99-W and to also opt for the LG 34WK95U-W. :p

The 38 inch version of the latter display, I was dreaming of, likely will not be announced before Q3/Q4 2019.
