post #1981 of 6172
Just saw the first post. At first I thought this was a thread about downsampling.

I've been playing on a 1080p monitor using higher downsampling resolutions... which is obviously more performance heavy but there are plenty of benefits from doing it. I've been concerned about switching to a higher res monitor because the higher resolution wouldn't be as beneficial... as I understand it. I'm always first and foremost concerned with removing aliasing...

So this is basically what you're doing? http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=346325
Seems like a lot of work for little gain.

Downsampling is the single-most beneficial graphical tweak I know of. There is actually a LOT of gain from it. If you have the power, the benefits are extremely noticeable. Some examples... (I won't flood the thread with images so I'll just post links)
Borderlands 2
If you like the black outlines ON but find them too thick, running the game at a higher-than-native resolution and then downsampling will actually make the lines thinner and cleaner.

Hitman Absolution
In-game AA can not remove all of the aliasing. It just can't. Need to combine AA + downsampling. The results are stunning.

Planetside 2
This game has no anti-aliasing to speak off. Downsampling is the only way. Of course, it requires insane hardware.... but again. Downsampling in this game is beautiful in motion.

Far Cry 3
AA in this game is a blurry mess.... and again, I find it doesn't completely remove aliasing. AA + downsampling = insaaaaanely crisp image quality.

First, I don't see how its so outdated?
Second, I don't see how your screenshots are better, we can't even see them at 2560x1440 doh.gif

But the downsampling seems interesting.

It's outdated because the slow and careful method of putting together a downampling resolution is completely unnecessary. all you have to do is set your res at the top 99% of the time you can leave settings on automatic and you're good to go. Takes 30 seconds. The only resolution I have to change any settings for is 2160p, which is tricky with 600 series nvidia cards.

I originally came here thinking it was a thread about downsampling to 1080 from a resolution of 1440p or higher. I only responded with images to go over the benefits of doing it... but.... its irrelevant.

Carry on everyone.

considering all the pictures, screenshots, giant spreadsheet of monitors and statistics of what monitors and what gpus and owners club.... how? tongue.gif haha

I saw the title but didn't read the first post. Then I thought I'd pop in and ask if it was still worth it to go to a 1440p monitor if you're used to using downsampling... as I don't think the benefits would be as noticeable. 2160p downsampled to 1440p probably wouldn't look as good as 2160p downsampled to 1080p... but both would obviously cost the same performance-wise.

Decisions decisions....
