Graphics Clarity Difference For Gaming From 1080p to 1440p

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

At the moment guys i game at 1080p 120hz. Which to be honest i like. Im upgrading my GPU from 2 670 in SLI to 1 Single GTX 1080TI when its released. 

My CPU is a i7 4770k which is still a good CPU. 

 

Ive seen a 1440p monitor in action however ive never seen it compared to a 1080p side by side. What i want to no is, is the difference in graphic clarity for GAMING "most important for me"  from 1080p to 1440p worth the hefty £600 pounds price tag "cost of the monitor i want". Is it worth it since i will be getting a nice 120hz FPS at 1080p in most games.  Will a gtx 1080ti last a few years at very good FPS in lastest AAA titles at 1440p over 1080p. Ive seen a few older games play at 1440p with nice fps over 100 but future games. Really stuck its been 50/50 for me. One day im going to upgrade then the next nope i will stick at 1080p. 

 

Really NEED someone which games at both 1080p and 1440p at high fps. To compare and give me a honest account. Yes we know the clarity at 1440p is better than 1080p but its it worth the price tag and the FPS hit?

Im pretty sure a 1080ti will give you 4k at 60fps so, yeah you should be able to maintain 1440p at 144...

What i really want to no even more than FPS at 1440p. Can look at benchmarks for the GTX 1080TI when they come out. Is the GRAPHICS DIFFERENCE. Compared from 1080p to 1440p. 

 

On youtube people try and show videos or pictures of both 1080p and 1440p games in action but since im on a 1080p Monitor you CANT tell the difference. 

 

Its the difference in Clarity compared to the Price of the monitor. Is it Worth it. What i am trying to say is. Is there a Massive Increase of clarity ENOUGH to warrant the £600 pound price tag.

As @Sakkura mentioned, 2160 will likely be the next popular resolution since the scaling is nearly identical when ratios are equal. I'll be waiting until 11520x2160 is doable at 30 or 60Hz.

A 1440p monitor also doesn't need to cost £600. Cheapest ones are just over £200, and there are pretty decent ones at £400 or less.

 

Very subjective whether it's worth it. But as I said, 4K monitors are going to make 1440p look like poor value for money, as 4K looks even better and the prices are getting very close to 1440p.

Yea it sucks when trying to compare resolutions. Thats why im asking from someone who plays both 1080p and 1440p. 

 

Its not the FPS im wanting to no. Its the difference in graphics clarity over 1080p to 1440p, Is it worth the price of the monitor at £600 pounds. I dont want to no if that person is happy or not. They will proparly will be. I just want to no if its worth the money.

 

If the difference is big or small in clarity?

well it depends because pixal per inch is the what your looking for

Its a 1440p gsync 144hz Monitor im looking at. Not cheap. 

 

Your correct 4k is way better looking. But everyone is saying 1440p is the sweet spot atm.

i have a 24inch 1080p and it will be a 27 inch 1440p if i buy. 

 

Ive asked other forums and stuff and i cant get a STRAIGHT answer from anyone. Is the difference huge or small in clarity to justify the price tag. ?

1080p at 24" is 91 pixal per inch and 1440p at 32" is 91 pixal per inch there for the image would look just the same but just be bigger

is u go to 27" at 1440p your gettin 108 ppi there for your image will look better and bigger win win

higher resolution gives a better image but it means u can run a lot bigger monitor and still match or beat the image quality there for looking better as things are easier to see and make out ie a person at long range in battlefield for example or arma 3

So basically what your saying is 91 pixal per inch to 108 ppi. Thats a 17 ppi increase.

That does not seem to be a Huge increase going off that alone. Just by what you have said. The difference in clarity might not be worth the price tag. Or do i get this all wrong?

it does seem like a lot but yr screen will also be 3" bigger and give a better image then yr current 1 am going from 21.5 1080p to 28" 1440p in a month or so

I switched from 1080p to 1440p a year ago, so i've been using 1440p since then. and there is a noticeable difference in graphics quality, but it's mostly just that details pop out a bit more. aliasing is still an issue, but it depends on the game. MSAA x2 or equivalent is all that's needed to get rid of most aliasing, or even FXAA if you don't mind some texture blur. 

 

if you want the smoothest 1440p gaming experience, i would get a 1070 or better

Thats what im thinking of doing. New GPU for sure my 670's are showing there age now. I've will have the horse power to run 1440p at ok frames for the next year or so however its the price of the monitor for me. And the fps hit eventually if i get the monitor i am concerned about.  Might wait for 4k 144hz to come out then make the change however it would be nice to actually hear from a person which has 1080p and 1440p to say either the graphics clarity is a huge improvement over 1080p or its ok but not worth the investment.

so 4k is = to 4 1080p screens so 4k 28" is 157ppi and 1080p 28" is 78ppi just over 2 times the ppi 

1440p 27" 108ppi and 1080p 24" 91 ppi 1.2 times more ppi if that helps (i assume u have seen 4k tvs in pc shops and that)

 

so your getting a good jump in details and more screen to look at

What games do you play primarily?

Go for 1440p / 144+ Hz with G-Sync.

 

1080p is not fit for a GTX 1080 ti. It has so much power, it will be bottlenecked merely by the low 1080p resolution. 1440p is fine, since you will be pushing those frames too.

 

4k is sharp. but slow. 60 Hz only.

There will be an 4k 144 Hz HDR monitor. 2000 Dollar / Euro :) If you want to pay that, wait for it. If not, you will either go up to 4k, by going back to laggy 60 Hz, or stick to 1440p with 144+ Hz.

 

"Popular resolution"... who says what is popular? Games don't have a specific resolution. They can run at any resolution. 1440p works just as fine, as 1080p or 4k. Only differences are the Pixel counts.

 

If anything is popular, giving the 3840 x 2160 Resolution the wrong name 4k, when it's actually UHD ;) *nitpicking* :P

 

 

My personal opinion: i would NEVER go to UHD resolution, if it means going back to 60 Hz. Absolutely Nope. Not even for pure Web browsing. The  Smoothness is just way too good.

Popular is the majority. Which is 1080p. Just get 2 more screens. The 1080ti will struggle with that just like the 1080 does. 3 is better then one 1440.

Only way for me for SURE is to buy the GTX 1080TI when its released. Then see what happens when i play the lastest AAA gaming titles which will be most of them. If my CPU is bottlenecking hard at 1080p then i will have to upgrade and pick which monitor or monitors. 4K will be really nice but seriously atm waiting for 4k 120hz and hitting that at max settings in most gaming titles. Wait 2 or 3 years at least, plus 4k 120hz min will not be cheap. Wait for prices to drop.

This guys is wise. Listen to him. Game at 1440p 144Hz, thats the way to go. You are used to high framrates, going back to 60fps Its not a good idea, youll notice It A LOT MORE than youll notice the graphical upgrade. Go for the 1080 or 1080ti and play at 1440p.
