Does it work with Linux (Wayland Weston etc.): UNKNOWN.
There is no clear positive statement that it does… or does not.

The headline specs are all those fun “little lies” that commerce gets to flourish itself with …wherein “8K” equals 7600, and “32 inches” equals 28.4″ etc.

  1. tl;dr → you need a special nVidia card, one of the G10 series with DisplayPort v1.4 support.
    There exists a testimonial of someone who has gotten it to work with RHEL7.
    Nothing else will work. the display is ahead of its supply chain.
