    I don't see why it wouldn't work. Should easily run via HDMI or DisplayPort.

    P.s. Why would you be interested in that monitor? The 5k LG is better value IMO

    Looks like you need a bigger desk with that monster.

    Seriously, I am trying to decide between two monitors and an Ultrawide. But I think this thing is too wide!

    Unless you get an eGPU probably?

    I think this CHG90 will have less PPI than the 38UC99... but it will be brighter...

    Hmm, it's only half 4k resolution, so the Radeon Pro GPUs should easily be able to provide the 144 Hz to this display. I guess it's more about the drivers and the support of macOS for the higher refresh rate than the power, but I can't find any specifications for lower resolution, high refresh rate displays on Apple's or AMDs website.

    By the way, isn't the pixel density a little low on that screen? I'm still using one of Apple's thunderbolt displays, and that one is borderline when it comes to reading small text -- I certainly wouldn't want to go any lower ppi wise.

    I think you're right, that PPI is a little too low for 49"... I'll probably be keeping the 38UC99. I sure was hoping for something better/larger. I'd love to see a 40"+ widescreen 8K monitor!
