If this doesn't work I will go retail in the future.
In the meantime have tried to see differences on br movies any can't find any improvement, so the dot doubler on the tv doesn't work for me. Ran it through a 2012 onyko 4k upscaling avr also with no improvement. Tried 2013 models of sony, lg, and Panasonic upscaling br players with no imp. Next I will try the sony 1040 avr I'm hoping its upscaler processing chip is similar to the one in its 4k tv because that looks fantastic to me in the showroom. I can't seem to find detailed info on which versions of qdeo by marvel the avr vendors are using and some don't use it at all.
I will download timescapes and play with youtube for content any other ideas where I can get non games content? Of course I have 200 steam games but seems like only half dozen new ones have support for 4k. I cant get google to help me find an exhaustive list of 4k compatible games either.
After buying just ONE titan on ebay and it being fraud, why would you do it two more times?
By then it becomes worth the extra price to make damn sure you aren't being scammed. Seems like everyone I hear about buying a titan on ebay is getting somehting else in the box...
As for games being "4k compatible" it is pointless to even bother. As long as the game properly supports using the resolution profiles presented by the drivers/os, it will run at 4k. The aspect ratio is still 16:9, so there is no reason why modern games shouldn't be able to do that resolution.
In the case of older games, where the resolution is controlled purely by the engine (like D2, 800x600 max ftl), you just wind up with the monitor scaling it. But even D3, which doesn't support surround whatsoever, manages to do "windowed fullscreen" at the native resolution of my portrait surround setup. It displays a resolution much lower in the settings, but it still fullscreens to the whole setup and works great.Edited by Masta Squidge - 6/24/13 at 9:21am
