Is it worth it to go 1440p?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am at 1080P 90hz with my 1070, very happy with it so far, had it for 3 days and it performs excellent, also no bottlenecks which i was told might happen but it's not.

 

So is the jump from 1080P to 1440P really worth it? 4K is far out of my reach i would need so much GPU power just to run games it's just going to hurt my wallet hugely.

If it's 1440p/60hz, then it depends on what games you play the most. If you play CSGO a lot, stay with 144hz for sure. If you play a lot of AAA titles, Witcher 3, deus ex, then 1440p will benefit you more since it makes games absolutely beautiful. 

 

Of course, there's the 1440p/144hz option, but it's not cheap.

When I switched Overwatch from 1440p down to 1080p I had to stop and look around for a second thinking "o damn forgot how ugly 1080p was"

B*tch please, I'm still running on 768p and it looks great in my opinion. :)

1440p is amazing, it makes a huge difference. I recommend pixio px277. I have a qnix qx2710 and its ptretty good at 96hz with my gtx 970

Fully maxed out early 2017 Dell XPS 15, GTX 1050 4GB, 7700HQ, 1TB nvme SSD, 32GB RAM, 4k display. 97Whr battery :x 
Dell was having a $600 off sale for the fully specced out model, so I decided to get it :P

 

-Crapbook

Fully specced out early 2013 Macbook "pro" with gt 650m and constant 105c temperature on the CPU (GPU is 80-90C) when doing anything intensive...

A 2013 laptop with a regular sized battery still has better battery life than a 2017 laptop with a massive battery! I think this is a testament to apple's ability at making laptops, or maybe how little CPU technology has improved even 4+ years later (at least, until the recent introduction of 15W 4 core CPUs). Anyway, I'm never going to get a 35W CPU laptop again unless battery technology becomes ~5x better than as it is in 2018.

Apple knows how to make proper consumer-grade laptops (they don't know how to make pro laptops though). I guess this mostly software power efficiency related, but getting a mac makes perfect sense if you want a portable/powerful laptop that can do anything you want it to with great battery life.

I have 4K and when I look at 1080p I can see every disgusting pixel

Well don't buy 87 inch 1080P screens next time.

@Soundsystem90, I'm not joking, it really still looks good even though it was introduced years ago.

Yes you can do 1440p easily with eye candy, on a 1070. But don't expect the framerates to justify a 144Hz panel. 


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

I went from 24" 1080p, to 25" 1440p, to 28" 4k and now I am on 29" ultrawide and i for me personally the bigger pixel density did not so too much. Yes 4k was noticeably sharper, but when I am really on the game....I don't feel the difference anymore. Ultrawide however as a form factor opposed to resolution was a game changer for me. Immersion is much better with the wider display.

However if you want a bigger display, definitely get 1440p or higher for me the sweet spots are basically up to 24": 1080p, from 25-27" and probably even a bit bigger like 28-30": 1440p, anything above that size: 4k. 

 

I mean this is my subjective view and I found out by swapping hardware, meaning displays, like an idiot. ;-)

 

Edit: I forgot to say that if I were you, I would get a nice 34" 3440x1440p display. Unfortunately I don't have the horsepower in my PC and funds to make it happen myself, but with those displays, all you see is the game and you get so immersed.
