Samsung 4K 1ms monitor $754 it has begun - Page 103

post #1021 of 1323
Mine is going back to the store on Sunday when I am near Microcenter again. It looks great, but Windows is just not ready for 4k. For the live of me I can not find a balance of things being big enough to see but not look like total crap.

^ I went through that perfect font phase...never really could find one. So now, my desktop is one size, but my web stuff is different, depending on the size of the window. I use the zoom in/out button accordingly.

Anyway, I lowered my settings in BF4 a little and it's fine now. My bigger issue is how horrible scaling is in Windows.

Curious, when we say "scaling", are we talking about the size of the icons? I know when I installed the catalyst drivers, at first it was small, can't remember if it was a reboot or after a couple flashes, the icons went back to a proper, viewable size. Windows 8.1 with 295x2, no issues, great monitor.

Well, one issue, dark souls 2 had purple artifacts which most say is due to anisotropic settings, I set it to medium in game and what artifacts I have are gone so far, that's been the worse but barely noticeable. Some have had bad artifacts.

I've been using 125% in Windows and then in IE11 125% zoom. Been working great for me.

I have my desktop icons set to medium, and, I right click on my gadgets to change the dpi in each, adjust my web browser zoom and my Windows look almost similar to what it did with my 1080p monitor...

Does anybody else have SLI with this monitor? Using the newest international drivers (337.81) with Heaven 4.0 and I get massive stuttering and inconsistent GPU usage throughout. I ran the test at Extreme with no AA, and I got 45fps on stock clocks SLI 780Ti.

Using a pair of Titans, and so far on the latest and greatest (337.81), having no issues so far, knock on wood. But I have to say, it is rather amusing to have to return to the days of adjusting settings for peak performance: I got used to setting everything at ultra and not being worried about frames. smile.gif

I'm going to have a tough time deciding to keep this monitor or not. Honestly, there is 0 ghosting to my eyes in games (or very little) when in fast paced shooters, there is screen tearing but it's 60 Hz so I would expect that. If I just had my U2711 from Dell before this I would be sold, but the high refresh Asus monitors I've used makes me consider waiting for Acer's 4k w/ GSYNC, or even Asus with there Swift.

Took me a bit to adjust game settings to get that balance but my single 780ti is holding it's own easily. Highest VRAM I'ved used is just 2.1 GB's so far.

What games are you playing? In BF4 and not even maxed out settings and no form of AA I was using well over 3GB on my R9 290.

Comparing ram usage between cards with differing total amounts doesn't really work even when they are the same brand.

The more ram that's available, the more the game will cache.
