      Nice, but I don't like Gnome 3.
      How is is the support for these displays on KDE Plasma ?

        Any fix upstreamed might be backported to 18.04 LTS.

          Fine, from what I've heard and seen. GNOME on Wayland has had some specific issues regarding refresh rate but I think most will be ironed out in 3.34.

            Thanks!
            Now I hope I will see soon 4K displays that can have refresh rates more than 60.

              They already exist, but are incredibly expensive and the display protocol uses compression to achieve so.

                Now I won't have to use an environment variable to turn off the refresh rate limit for gnome

                    What about 144Hz? Any ideas if such refresh rates would work OK on KDE?
