Single GPU 1080 to Run Games @ 1440p 144hz?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Obviously we all know that 3440x1440 or larger with refresh rates > 100Hz will be supported with DP 1.3/4 which is found on the 1070 and 1080. What I'd like the community's help with is that I am currently on a Asus PG348Q which is running at 100Hz, and I don't know if I should keep it now that Pascal is out with DP 1.4 support and support for higher refresh rates at higher resolutions.

On a side note, I have experience the 144Hz difference and I have to say that it is way smoother than 100Hz, so 144Hz+ is what I am aiming for in a display, and it must be ultrawide! My PG348Q has scanline issues (from 3 feet away) and BLB issues so I plan to return it anyway. I was wondering if I should just give up on this type of panel and just wait until ultrawides have higher refresh rates.

Now without this further becoming a monitor discussion, I'd like to know if the 1080 or higher would support 3440x1440 at ~ 140 fps in games maxed out. If the 1080 really can push those frames out, then it makes much more sense to purchase a monitor at the refresh rate matched to the performance of the graphics card - - something that I can really enjoy!

It really depends on what you are playing. Most modern games will not play maxed out at 144fps with 1440p. 144 is really good for highly competitive FPS games. Most of those games are not worth maxing out due to the advantages that lowers settings can give you. I have a 970 1080p and most modern games will not stay at a steady 144fps.
Unless you play allot of older titles or FPS games its not worth it.

You are using a IPS panel monitor. Maybe you like the in game visibility TN panels have to offer.

So is 100+ fps gaming possible on highest settings for most titles with this 1080 gpu?

.....edit. I just found out that most titles like crysis 3, bf4, and doom will not get over 100 fps at max settings for my resolution (3440x1440). I'm not going to be playing fps games competitively or anything, I just want a solid framerate > 60 for faster gameplay and to match my gsync.

Without context of what games you are playing, this question is redundant, because I can say yes and no all at the same time.

You just posted while I was editing. While I did play CS:S competitively back in the day now it's just productivity and I like to enjoy titles like I previously described. I'm not a competitive gamer but who knows I may kick it back again to CoD2 or CS:S and CS:GO a little bit, so I may want a monitor capable of 144+ hz at ultrawide resolution (3440x1440).

So I think the real question now is should I return my flawed pg348q and wait until the VA 144hz 3440x1440 panels are released around october, so my 1080 can take advantage of games at higher frame rates?

Here is what my PG348Q looks like by the way with a 980.

I would always go for higher Hz monitor, if the quality is equal in terms of picture. I don't know if it has G-Sync though, I hear people swear by that feature. So if you are willing to sacrifice G-Sync, sure.

Knowing how easily my eyes get tired, 144hz is a way to go for that reason. The higher the hz, the less flicker you perceive. If you are pulling more than 100 FPS in games you will play, then I say it's worth it to upgrade to 144.

Here is 1080, 1440, and 2160p tests for you in BF4

So the 1080 should be able to do what I am looking for! As far as monitors, none are released yet, but the Acer XZ350CK will be a 3440x1440 180 Hz Panel, and the AOC AG352UCG is the same but will have gsync. Let's just hope none of these DP 1.3 monitors will have QC issues and won't be that bad in terms of viewing angles and ghosting due to VA panels. Only time will tell; but as far as that goes I will be returning my PG348Q and going back to the PG278Q temporarily until some good ultrawide comes out with not many issues like the x34 and PG348Q are plagued with.
