My sig rig at 1440p? Would games look fuzzy/blurry at 1080p? - Page 4

btw I just remembered my monitor has a fast response option, I forgot about it, never used it before. Hot damn the response is fast in fast mode.

 

Yeah, I've been using the XB241H's 1ms response time for a few hours now for the very first time ever (my 2253BW had a 2ms response time that I regret to say I never remembered to use), and WOW. Combined with G-SYNC, it doesn't get much better than this, especially with high framerates. With high framerates, it can sometimes seem like I'm really there which makes the game even easier to play.

 

By the way, I am noticing a slight blurriness in Crysis 3 at 1600x900, but only for things super-close to me - like tiny little details on the gun. It's like, "oh. lol"

 

I may have to test all of my games, but I don't know how good of a test this really is for seeing what my games would look at like at 1080p on a 1440p monitor. I mean, I don't really believe 1600x900 is really that much different from 1920x1080, certainly not like comparing 2560x1440 to 1920x1080p?

The visuals depend mostly on your display IMO, it's worth getting a really good one that'll be an upgrade over the old one in various aspects.

 

Yeah, even though there are 2 things I hate about the XB241H (the poor luminosity uniformity and the stupid OSD showing up dead-center to say I'm using the DP when it reconnects), it's otherwise blowing me away. I'm in love with these improvements!!! It's a lot like I upgraded to a better video card.

you gotta judge for yourself, some will say it's okay, some will say it's not. 27" 1440p 144Hz with g-sync/ulmb is such a sweet spot for me that I'm probably gonna use it for years, until 1440p 144Hz plays better on a GTX xx60 tier card than it does on my GTX 1080 ATM. Probably 5 years or more. I know new things will come out but this is just perfect for me.

Yeah, it seems my most demanding games don't really suffer much from not playing them at the monitor's native resolution. I mean sure, I see it a little bit (especially in the in-game menu for the first Crysis), but it's damn-near impossible to tell unless I'm actively looking for the signs that I'm not using the native resolution.

 

So hmm. I don't know. I am definitely going to return the XB241H though. I'm tired of how when it reconnects, it puts up the OSD dead-center for a few seconds to tell me which signal type it's using.
