Bah, ultra wide isn't stretched, its increased field of view, its more visible screen, its 21:9 movie format (no more black bard on top and bottom of screen), its having 3 full size web browsers open side by side... Its simply awesome

 

Unfortunately given no film exists in 1440p you are not going to be watching films at that resolution without having the hideous interpolation artefacts associated with watching at a non-native resolution. This is the primary reason I skipped 1440p altogether.

I have a 3440 x 1440, and it is AMAZING. I love it. I think 4k is just a bit premature. There is not a lot of content and GPUs need to be really high end to run 4k. My 980 Ti G1 can only get about 45-50 fps in GTAV at 3440 x 1440

Stretched would mean 2560x1440 at 21:9. But it's 3440 wide, there's actual pixels there that make it 21:9. No stretching.

so true...

The day they release an IPS ultrawide G-sync 1440 100+ Hz monitor with good build construction, I will be so happy I will probably suffer a seizure.

eh what!? 3440x1440 is not a standard movie aspect ratio so there will be huge black bars. this has nothing to to with fps.. its about the immersion...

why? 3440x1440 has a 21:9 aspect ratio.. 4k is 16:9 the universal standard.

also as 1080p is also 16:9 it means non 4k/uhd content shows boarder less to.

I and many other people would prefer a non letter box viewing experience.

Well the ACER X34 Freesync version got a good review, do you think I should pre order the ACER X34 Gysnc version.

And again ... your just lying.

Go on wikipedia and research resolutions and "standards" if you dont know that youre lying.

 

I feel like "standards" and "symbols" are made for that sort of people anyway.

Its one hell of a monitor, but also at one hell of a price!!

you could save a bit and get a Dell U3415, ok it's not g sync but coming from someone who has it.. I don't think it's worth the premium.

if you're willing to pay it the Asus 8300r is suposed to also be an awesome monitor.

still personally coming for a 4k owner I'd get a 4k display! so much cheaper!

I have a Samsung 34um95c ultra wide at work and while I'm not saying it's not a great monitor or great experience I'd much rather have my 4k display! then again I don't exactly get to game much at work!!!

I was implying that you don't know what you are talking about ;) 21:9 is movie aspect. That's why you get black bars when you watch movies on a 16:9 or 16:10 screen. Sure some movies are cropped to fit those aspect ratios, or stretched, but 21:9 is movie aspect ratio

When I mentioned fps I was implying that he didn't know what he was talking about. And no, given that the movie hasn't been cropped, 21:9 is the normal movie aspect ratio. That's why I get the whole screen filled when I watch on my 34" 3440x1440 screen.

Both are shit, get the Acer XB270HU or the upcoming IPS Swift PG279Q.

Not only it's a better monitor then the curved Benq, with the money you save you can get a Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.

 

If money isn't your problem, you might aswell get a 5K monitor, or even one of the first 8K monitors.

Or three PG279Q's if you say money/hardware isn't the problem, then you are running 4 980Ti's.

Are you actually a moron? I'm not talking about aspect ratio, I'm talking about screen resolution. I'm not talking about black bars, I'm talking about artefacts caused by watching in a non-native resolution. If you watch a 720p image on a 1080p screen you will get blurriness caused by the pixels not mapping an integer number of times. Given the fact that the number of films produced in 1440p (of any aspect ratio) is literally 0 you are guaranteed to experience this artefacting on any film you want to watch.

 

In fact the 1080p blu rays available are marketed as such assuming you are watching on a 16:9 display so the "1080p" includes the letterboxing you are referring to. Their actual resolution is 1920x800. This means that even on a 1080p 21:9 panel you still get a blurred image as a result of watching on a non-integer related resolution.

 

This is the third time I've seen you condescendingly tell someone that they don't know what they were talking about while simultaneously talking out of your own arse.

I still don't understand why they release blu-rays on 21:9 format instead of 16:9.

 

All proffesional digital cameras (like RED) shoot 16:9 nowdays.

 

The same with the stupid 24 framerate, a Red Epic Dragon shoots at 100FPS @ 6K:

Cinemas still have very wide screens, I'd guess that's the motivation for not moving entirely to 16x9. And I would rather they released letterboxed films than crop them.

 

As for the framerate, I am with you there but everyone cried when The Hobbit did that and said it wasn't as "cinematic" and that it looked like a soap opera. Personally it enabled me to follow action scenes without getting a headache, but whatever.

Yeah drove 150km to Amsterdam just to see it in HFR  :P

 

My city has IMAX 3D but no IMAX 3D HFR.

I have tried an Oculus Rift, it was good but I would not use it for games at the moment. Also I could get a 5K monitor but it does not have Gsync on it. Also 8K monitors will not be out for a long time. I could get three ACER X34, that would just be to big then, also I could get 3 RoG PG27AQ but then you might as well get a 21.9 monitor. So I will get one ACER X34 Gsync monitor. I will then upgrade to a 5120x2160 Curved Gsync monitor when it comes out.

Yeah but the X34 is 75hz max? That's a no go for me.

 

I've got the chance to play with three Acer XB270HU in surround and it's not that impressive either, people are overhyping ultrawide/surround

I rather have one screen and to play at +100FPS then three screens at 40-50FPS.

Well it might be 100Hz, also if you buy decent GPUs, you can play at 80 FPS on a 3440x1440p monitor.
