Here is a picture of my 1080p monitor next to the 1440p, not sure if you can really tell the quality difference, since it's not the best picture quality. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

I changed your picture with the newer one you provided thumb.gif

 

Also about the second picture, I can see that your 1440p monitor is just brighter, but maybe its just because of the different wallpaper.

 

@ everyone else, i updated my Crysis 1 1440p wallpapers with 5 more pictures.

** this was suppose to be a reply for someone asking if they should wait for the u2713hm......**

Don't know if this was replied earlier as I'm reading ALL the post from the 1440p+ club!

I have the u2711 and I never regretted it. Only thing I would "wait" for is for it to go on sale.

I'm in Canada, and the u2711 drops to $699.00 with free shipping. The drop in price varies but the lowest I’ve seen is $699.00 (that’s when i pulled the trigger and sold my 3 24inch 1080 garbage monitors)

A few things to consider for all that is waiting for Dell's new U2713hm



Cons of U2711
Heat....seriously....its a lot of HEAT!
No Pivot feature (might be an issue if someone has enough bling to buy 3 2560X1440 and PPP it) *drools*

Pros:

Everything else -Color Color Color and build quality -Out weights any cons.

I also compared it the U2212hm because I have two of them beside my u2711 and the color is close, but it is different when looking
at the exact same picture. -Only way I could've matched it was if i had 2 more u2711's or U2410's which I couldn’t afford.

The U2212hm has similar specs as the U2713hm (just like all the "HM" series)

The color Gamut and 1.07billion vs 16.7million makes a huge difference.

If you can get it on sale for $699.00 i wouldn't wait.

The Dell U2410 has been out for years and still blows Dell's new HM series away. There are only 3 monitors from Dell that support 1.07billion colors that are also AdobeRGB certified. (u2410, u2711, U3011)

Newer doesn’t mean better and the pricing of the U2711 will not drop below the regular sale discount for years to come. (Which is proven with the U2410)

And you get to say you have 1.07 BILLION COLORS!!!!!!!

It’s not only the pixel count that’s important but the color saturation has to equally match for the gaming experience.

Side note: If your wondering why I choose the u2212hm for the flanking monitors, I did it for the pixel pitch -didnt want the 0.27mm normal pitch that comes with 1080p screen. Just makes it more uniformed all around. =) 0.27mm vs 0.2475mm makes a huge difference when compared to .0233hm side by side.

Interesting feedback if you ask me.

Kinda tells me that 1440p is mostly used by enthusiasts so far, and enthusiasts usually purchase the latest technology.

The average of 7xxx Ati GPUs and 6xx Nvidia GPUs are very very high.

In other words
out of 69 Nvidia cards 45 of them are the 6xx series (65%)
out of 39 Ati cards 24 of them are tne 7xxx series. (62%)

Perhaps going for a 1440p monitor was just another excuse to upgrade to the latest GPU too smile.gif

Just wanted to add, I used a Gigabyte GTX 580 on one of my desktops for a while until recently, and it worked perfectly fine for 1440p games. Wasn't as fast as a GTX 670 or HD 7970 that I have now, but it worked quite well. Then again, overclocked HD 7870 pulled its weight well too.

The heat isn't that bad. I frequently see Newegg (US Site) sell it for $700, free shipping.

The heat doesn't bother me. It feels just as warm as every other monitor I've used at home.

If someone doesn't need the colorspace, accuracy, or inputs the U2711 has I'd suggest them a U2713HM.

I was considering waiting for a U2713HM before buying my 2711, but component/composite were a nice attraction, as well as the card reader and the stand. I dislike the new stand design, but love the U2711's.

When this happen what happens to the frame rates?

I always wanted to know this.

Does it hit a bottleneck spot and immediately get lower and capped until vram usage falls below 2GB, or does it stutter? slow down? maybe give artifacts?

That seems to be an extremely large amount of memory you are using. Are you sure there isn't some process running in the background sharing that? I am a regular player of BF3, mostly multiplayer, and the most I have ever seen is 1920MB of VRAM usage, according to EVGA Precision. But that's with Windows Aero running in the background....if you disable Aero before entering any game, you free up 200-400MB worth of memory. So I usually disable Aero before going into BF3, and the most I usually see is 1700MB worth of memory being used. I've never had a situation yet of running out of memory on 2GB cards with a single 1440p monitor.

Yeah, I've never gone above 2-2.5GB (yet) and that is at 2560x1600 with maxed everything and 16xAA.

I remember who said it but a fellow member on this club said that if a person has 4GB vram, than his vram usage could be more than others simply because there is more vram spared.

 

Maybe thats what I am facing with exactly.

 

I have nothing else running in the background besides Windows Aero.

Well I have 2x 4GB cards and am using a slightly larger resolution than most single monitor setups but I still don't see crazy usage. I do think that we are going to start seeing more Vram usage down the road but by that time I'll have new cards smile.gif
