Anyone able to measure out the side/top/bottom of the Crossover or Achieva?
post #3282 of 4784
Sorry If the is in the wrong place....

I am thinking on pulling the trigger on a Korean 1440P, but I have not seen a comparison in visual quality. Could someone with a 1440P Monitor post a 1440P screen shot in a game and a 1080P screenshot so i can see the difference.

The quality will not be any different in terms of looking at a screenshot, it'll just be bigger. Bigger pixel area (double that of a 720p display) means you need decent hardware to push all those pixels at native res, so what you're able to get out of it is dependent on your other components.

No, No , No, I am asking the difference between playing a game at 2.0 Megapixels and 3.6 Megapixels.

I am wondering if the increase of detail in each frame is worth it, along with the extra work space.

The extra work space is amazing. Effectively, you can have two normally full screen apps going at once and they don't get in the way of each other. Even better if you get two :-).

Larger resolution always looks quite a lot better. Even if you don't even game, the extra screen real estate is phenomenal and worth getting one for alone.

No, that's not what you're asking, as even if you looked at both screenshots you're requesting, you would not see a difference in quality unless you enlarge the 1080p shot to be the same SIZE as the 1440p shot.

In short, everything depends on the size/DPI of your display. If you plan on comparing the Korean 27" 1440p panels to any 1080p 27" panel (non-120hz) out there, then the 1440p panels will win every time. However, if what you're planning to do is view both screenshots on a 1080p monitor, then your logic is a bit flawed to saw the least. The bigger you go in monitor size, the more beneficial bigger resolutions become. Don't know how to put it any more plainly than that.

Also, can you not see a difference between 720p and 1080p? I can, and the same difference in detail will be shown in 1080p vs 1440p as long as the software/media being used is not merely being upscaled. Try playing a game in full screen 720p, then again in full screen 1080p. The hardware requirements go up, the framerates go down, and the amount of detail goes up as well. After doing all of this you still need to ask a question like your previous one, then there's just something I and others on the forum can't fix...

So, I'd like to know if anyone has 3 of these running off of a 7970. I have a Radeon HD Black Edition 3GB and would like a triple monitor setup. I'd like to mount on a triple monitor arm. I don't mind paying for pixel perfect etc.

What's the recommended setup? Model, seller etc.

I own a reference Sapphire 7970 and am worried about keeping up with new games at max settings on ONE display at 1440p. My 3View PCBank PB2700 Super is due early next week.

Doesn't matter if I OC it to 1200/1600; fact of the matter is that above 1080p, even the top single-GPU cards at the moment will start getting sluggish in the top graphical performers (BF3, Crysis1, etc.) at max settings. For 3x 1440p, you really would need AT LEAST two 7970/680s or the upcoming 7990/690 unless you want to be running at mediocre settings. Also, keep in mind that all the Korean panels are dual DVI only (with multi-input models sporting HDMI for 1080p and lower), so you'll have to spend more money on active DP adapters for Eyefinity.

Anyone get a DVI-D cable that works with the Catleap? I've tried two off ebay and they don't work for my second system. The DVI-D cable that came with the catleap works on the second system so I know it works.

Any links to known working DVI-D cables for the catleap would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Edit: I have a 6970 in my second machine and it's a known working video card.
