CES 2011 @ 2560 x 1600 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Dell ones are pretty. Not sure though how good they are for gaming VS a smaller/faster screen.
I can say that I really love my u2711, but when my friends are playing any FPS's on my computer they have headaches right away since it's apparently to big. You'd also need to keep in mind that they're not blazing fast at response rate.

Good ones should probably come from ASUS, they're usually the ones that come out with awesome stuff for gaming; although they are usually glossy, a turn off for me

That being said, I far and away prefer the faster performance of my XL2410T's TN panel @ 120Hz for my faster paced games (I prefer shooters) and powering games @ 1080p to try and keep up with that 120Hz is strenuous enough, I hate to think about the rig needed to power 1600p @ 120Hz.




no, not for 2560x1600 @ 120Hz, only Display Port can provide enough bandwidth. Dual link DVI can do 2560x1600 @ 60Hz, but not 120Hz. HDMI can't do either.
1600p @ 120Hz is the max any standard video port can output.

We need a new universal type... Of course I'm talking about Lightpeak, which, in its mature stages, can provide 6x the throughput of DP.

Personally, I would rather take a gun to my head than game in 3d. I scour local movie theatre listings to find somewhere where the movie I want to see is not in 3d.

This looks interesting....

We'll have to see the panels in action before we can truly judge what 12ms means, it could just be a very honest number, most panels are advertised based on their absolute best response time and not a typical average. 12ms could be a very good number.

As far as the U3011, again, I would consider that more of a work monitor, the U2711's smaller pixel pitch, wider aspect ratio and slightly lower resolution would all be much friendlier and advantageous for gaming.

I loved my first impression of my U2711 and gaming. If anything it was only disappointing in the fact that it was so demanding of GPU power that I had to get a second GTX470 to run comfortably on my newer games. However after a couple weeks of gaming on my 120Hz XL2410T, and first person perspective gaming on any 60Hz LCD will just about make me feel sick in comparison.

not sure what you're trying to say, but it sounds like you're suggesting current connections other than Display port can do 2560x1600 @ 120Hz, which they most certainly cannot.

While I don't mind you going geek with the promotion of Light Peak (which is awesome not only for its sheer bandwidth, but its promise to act as universal replacement for current buses such as SCSI, SATA, USB, FireWire, PCI Express, not just HDMI/DP/DVI), however that is something that still needs development and introduction, currently the only commercial interface that could possibly do 1600p @ 120Hz is Display Port.

Heck, right now my 2560x1440 x 60Hz U2711 - which has 7 input sources ranging from VGA to composite/component - only accepts dual link DVI or Display Port if I want to run the monitor's full native resolution.
