How is possible that in 2 years G9 not have Firmware update to be able to adjust resolution to 3440x1440 240hz. Not all games example is possible to run with 5120x1440 resolution or more demanding games are unplayable with decent graphics. We are talking about 1600$ monitor. Next time when buy monitor need make better research.

This is from the Samsung G9  manual resolution tables:

Before I  go shopping for a high  performance monitor I make a list of the features, size, resolutions, and refresh rate I want.  If I can't find one to match my wish list then I compromise features etc  until a suitable match is found.

At this point I look at the capability of my graphics card and computer system to  make sure they can support the maximum performance of the chosen monitor.  I replace whatever is needed in the system and add the monitor.

If a system can't support the monitor in question and is unable to upgrade then the  monitor specs need to be downgraded to match the system specs.

Spotting a new "shiny" and adding it without doing the pre-purchase homework just creates bad feelings.

Firmware can  tweak and sometimes add new features but, it cannot rebuild the circuitry in a monitor to  do things they were not designed for.
