All it does is a super AA technique. On 1080p you need AA but on 1440p you really don't need it as there are way more pixels..Just think of it like this. MY 55IN 1080P TV has the same amount of pixels as my 5in gs4.lol so of course the phone will have to cram way more ppi to get the same amount of pixels..
Yeah i am not sure we are on the same page yet(almost). PPI is relative to resolution and screen size. The size of the pixels are just about exactly the same on a 1080p monitor at 21.5" then it is on a 1440p monitor at 27". I have an ultrabook running a 1080p screen at 11.6" and the density and overall quality(other than 120hz) is BETTER than the Qnix. downsampling can somewhat help in this regard. I never said anything about it adding pixels in fact i very much tried to stay away from it as many people do have this delusion(why i said "fake"). The main reason certain people get confused and think it is actually creating more pixels are not completely out of their minds either because it overall looks like there is.
To kinda make this a bit more clear, take a monitor at 1080p with a screen size of 21.5" and set it right next to your Qnix and then move a window between them. You will notice that they are VERY close almost identical. Next apply downsamplinjg to the 1080p screen and compare(which i have done). The 1080p screen in terms of just pixel pitch will look better than the Qnix. As you already know anti-aliasing even at our 109PPI Qnix does make games look better(especially for those of us with very good sight) i am simply venturing into doing this for the whole PC experience which supersampling does.
And a 55" TV looks like absolute trash compared to a 5" screen at the same resolution(and period for that matter since the PPI is garbage). For this reason i could never go back to a large TV display they just look horribly blocky. I am really not sure what you are trying to say actually other than some very obvious comments you really tried to discredit my point with my point. Anyways anyone that has actually used SS will tell you it makes your monitor have a good deal better quality. You get a pretty close to the same improvement when lowering the ridiculously high DPI on cell phones(but better).
So if anyone else decides to try this let me know how it goes and ho you went about doing it since i am a bit stuck with getting it to work.Edited by Spartan F8 - 6/6/13 at 2:57pm
