Why do so many people have a thing against 1080p??? - Page 2

post #11 of 86
My 4:3 15yr old 20" CRT had a better resolution..

Although i'm currently using 1080p on my Acer, and i'm quite happy with it.

not sure if i agree with that...to preface i'm not a video/display guru, i actually know very little...but looking at the massive power of video cards today, i don't see how it's not possible to ramp up displays and start pushing that envelope...maybe i've missed tech write-ups, but i don't think there's been hardly any (if at all) movement toward increasing resolutions and making graphics more life-like at higher resolutions...it seems like people are content with 1080p and because people are making good money at 1080p they feel they don't need to innovate and create newer and better technology, which IMO is people's major hangup with 1080p...1080p is really common-place now days as someone already said, where is the innovation? We didn't need dual-core processors when they came out, we really can't use hexacore processors to their full potential but hardware just keeps getting better and better...I'm kinda in the camp of "why not" improve tvs and monitors...but again, i'm not up-to-date with video tech so maybe i'm just missing something...

I remember a few years ago 1680x1050 was the popular resolution and before that it was 1280x1024. 16:10 will never be popular again but 16:9 is cheaper to manufacture, it's the aspect ratio used in high def videos as well as games consoles.

We can always delude ourselves into thinking 16:10 is superior whether it's to defend a purchasing decision or simply to satisfy our inner elite snobbish character but unfortunately opinions cannot fight against facts. The haters are heading into a brick wall at full throttle.

I get confused every time someone wants to upgrade their video card and you get these haters saying "psshhh..you ONLY have 1080p, you'd be wasting your money on a new video card!"

Seriously, what's so wrong with this resolution? I don't know about you guys, but I don't feel like having to spend twice as much money on multiple video cards every year and a half just so I can get acceptable frames rates all because I'm running an "awesome" 2560x1600 monitor

I'd love a new super high res Dell monitor but I'm happy with what I've got and I'm sick and tired of idiots perpetuating this myth that 1080p sucks, cause it doesn't.
That's not hating on 1080p. That's just simply informing you that your resolution is in fact low for having a good GPU setup. There's no hate involved. Just a message that spending extra money on GPUs would not be that wise... soo...


If anything, 1080p is a good thing. It has become so standard that 1080p monitors are very cheap these days, and it's quite a decent resolution too, in a way... not that I'd want to go back to it anytime soon.

I like 1080p well enough. Even though there's an obvious difference when I look at the two monitors on my desk, I can't say which AR I prefer.

I understand. I mean, who needs QUAD 580s @1080P, but many like to perpetuate the myth that a single 580 will max out everything at 1080P, which it doesn't. There are many games and benches that dip way below 60FPS, and these are guys misinforming people when they say that a single 580 maxes everything out, which it doesn't. I had a 590 for a few days and that didn't even max everything out, and it wasn't even close.

Depends. Putting max AA is not that wise IMO.


I run 2048x1536 and 4800x1200 depending on the game. For 4800x1200, I really need more power from the GPU, a single on can't do that well anymore. But for 2048x1536, I would never get anything more than my 5870.

I have tried both and I think 1080p is just fine.

I like to max everything out (which includes AA). What kind of frames rates are you getting at 2048x1536? Personally I'd consider minimum frames rates under 60 unacceptable.

I don't know specifics. I don't play crysis, metro, or witcher 2. In dirt 3 for example, which you can use for reference here, I get like minimum of 60 FPS there. Roughly 80FPS average maybe. I don't use AA. In JC2 45FPS average. (that's probably the lowest I'll allow before lowering the resolution), in BC2 I have a CPU bottleneck but it's still 80FPS average with 45FPS drops once in a while.Again, no AA. I despise AA for reasons I'll leave unspecified.
