Released in 2018, 4K, 144Hz, G-sync...but HDR10?
I feel that next year dynamic HDR (Dolby Vision, HDR10+) will be the standard, something that PG27UQ does not support. With HDMI 2.1 specs finalized today and HDMI 2.1 TV most likely available next year as well, Variable Refresh Rate will be the equivalence of G-sync and people will opt for 4K HDR TVs to use as a monitor instead.
What left of PG27UQ to sell?
It's "G-SYNC HDR", not HDR10. Media players must specifically use the nVidia API to play HDR content. I don't know if this is dynamic or static. We don't know if it'll even support HDR10 over the HDMI input.
"These G-SYNC HDR monitors also come with support for HDR10 – the HDR format being adopted for PC gaming."
The term "G-Sync HDR" just means "G-sync" and "HDR". It's not a new type of HDR invented by Nvidia.
HDR can only be activated via NVAPI when using DisplayPort

Can you provide the source for this? If this is true, meaning no HDR via HDMI, it is a no buy for me since I need to use the monitor for PS4 Pro as well.
