Yeah, thats something that I was surprised to see in the videos that I've seen. I really like that aspect ratio. I just wish that Dell would drop the price on it a good bit. The same price as a 27" 2560x1440 display is a bit much imo.

Yup. Wider.
Look at the distance the camera is from the car...
2560 pixels is still 2560 pixels.

And the 2560x1440 shot isnt showing anything more then the 1920x1080.

It's the exact same distance. Overlay the 1920x1080 shot in a photo editor. Or I could make them all the same height and then maybe it will make sense for you.






Still wider.

I... I don't even. Clearly the concept of aspect ratios is lost on you. doh.gif Perhaps this might help.

Make sure to open them all in new tabs and tab between them to get the full effect. Also, DPI couldn't really be represented, and yes I know 27" 2560x1440 screens have a nicer picture thanks to the denser DPI. This also presumes a fixed FOV. In games where you can change it you can adjust it to come close to or match the 29" while also getting more vertical FOV as well.

Sizes are 23", 24", 27", 29", and 30" in that order:

Its manipulating the size of the objects being rendered. Thats why the car appears smaller. If all things were equal, you wouldnt have more width, and you would have less height. Take a solid picture at 2560x1440, if you go to 2560x1080, you have to cut the top and bottom, or smash it to view it all.

I get that games will change everything, but its not equal when the FOV and size of objects are being changed. If you watch a 16:9 movie you are going to have bars, or it will be stretched. Same as if you watch a 21:9 movie on a 16:9 screen.

You just don't get it and I'm done bothering trying to explain it. Enjoy being obtuse. lachen.gif

IDk, maybe Im not seeing it right now after being up for 32 hours, but I dont get how a solid image can not be cropped or stretched when changing the pixels viewing it.

Hey guys, first time posting here. Just got my Auria monitor from Microcenter and it looks AMAZING coming from a 1200p TN panel.
post #2399 of 6172
It's a wider aspect ratio, but the pixel count and density is lower. So, you're both right, in a sense.

The monitor itself is wider and gives you a sense of a wider field of view, but in all actuality 2560 x 1440 is more pixels you will actually see. More detailed.

27" 2560 x 1440 (16:9) is around 108 pixels per inch.
29" 2560 x 1080 (21:9, I believe) is around 85 pixels per inch, I believe. Significantly less detail, but again, it gives you a sense of "wide" and view field.

But yes, here's a visual representation of the ACTUAL pixels and how the screens resolution really compare.
More detail and space with the 27", the 29" is just aimed at gamers for the "field of view", which you don't actually get. You just perceive to get.

(Didn't mean to make German flag, just happened that way lol)

hmm.... by the 2560x1080 definition, it doesn't count since IARDAS said only 1440p or above, or in other words, your monitor needs at least 3,686,400 pixels to power in order to join this club.

So, you're 921,600 pixels short by going with 2560x1080. Not a whole big jump over 1080p.

anyway.... is Dead Space 3 worth it? or not really with all the microtransactions im hearing about...
