Question about hardware demand

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
What would be harder to achieve 120 frames vs 1400p ? Not overall visual quality but the actual hardware demand .
post #2 of 38
I don't have extensive first hand experience with 120 hz displays, but I know getting 120 fps in a game can be fairly difficult in some situations (when you end up being CPU bound).

However, 1440p requires a GPU with a lot of VRAM; 2GB or more is pretty much required.

Okay so high resolutions need strong GPUS and High frame rates would need high quality CPU .

No, for higher resolution you need the higher amount of Vram to avoid flickering, also some more juice power from VGA ( For example, I can't max all the setting of Metro Last Light with a single GTX 680 4gb version with the resolution of 2560x1440) For 120hz monitor, you may need either one more VGA or reduce the graphic setting to archive more than 90fps where you can see the differences.
For CPU, you need to overlock your CPU so it does not bottleneck, and limit the full power of your graphic cards.

Do you realize you just said "no" and then agreed with what I just said?

running games at 1080p or similar resolution at 120hz would be considerably more difficult than running games at 1440p at 60hz

I said "no" to topic opener not you ^^. Since he said:"Okay so high resolutions need strong GPUS and High frame rates would need high quality CPU ." which is a wrong assumption.

What he said wasn't wrong, it was just incomplete.

1920x1080x120 = 248M pixels per second.
2560x1440x60 = 221M pixels per second.

It really comes down to the math in the end. For what it's worth, there are a lot of video card/CPU combinations that won't hit a full 120 Hz at full HD with any sort of decent quality settings. Just because the monitor can do 120 Hz (or 144 Hz on some) doesn't mean you're going to get 120/144 FPS with a solid frame lock on either.

so from the last poster pushing for 120 frames can be impossible at times ? See I am trying to come to a conclusion on what monitor to buy this time around . I tried high resolution before and I tried 120hz before , both monitors produce great quality in their own right . Few links to the monitors I will be buying but only one can win . Right now using a back up monitor with 75hz and even with that I can see smoother game-play but the monitor is crap . Monitors below seem to tickle my interest thumb.gif

Oh let me say I love writing music in Live 9 so using 1400p would come in handy for music production but not sure I would like 60 frames when gaming . Some games look fine at 60 but others no so much
