16:9 Resolutions?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What are some 16:9 resolutions? Is 16:10 better than 16:9? And sorry to stray from the topic, but anyone knows what "tim" means when dealing with graphic cards?

TIM? sounds like Thermal paste you apply between chip ( CPU and GPU) and heat sink

16:9 became mainstream due to HD movies, but most gamers will go with 1920X1200 16:10
and there is no better.. is what ever you decide you like the most, is nice having extra 120 vertical pixels with 16:10, you get a taller monitor

For example:

A 16:9 monitor would be 1920x1080
A 16:10 monitor would be 1920x1200

Both would be able to run 1080p resolutions, but the 16:10 monitor would either stretch the image, or display the image in its original format with the addition of black bars on the top and bottom (accounting for the extra lines gained from 1080 -> 1200).


TIM = Thermal Interface Material. It's the thermal grease/paste used between the chip and the heatsink.

Some 16:9 resolutions I got from a game:
1280x720
1360x768
1600x900
1776x1000
1920x1080

Most use 1920x1080 for 16:9. 16:9 is better for movies while 16:10 is better for games.

I assume they mean Thermal interface Material when referring to TIM.
