1080p or 1440p?

 Share

Hello, 

is 1080p dying in 2022?

I'm asking this because i want to make the switch to 1440p,

but i also want high fps so im little bit stuck in between (i'm also planning to get a 3060ti but its not a really good card for 1440p right?)

so maybe it's better to have 1080p?

also all my friends say "1080p is going nowhere and its here to stay"

what resolution do you prefer to game on, and is 1080p really dying?

1440p is the best resolution for gaming and productivty for screen size 27" (wide), 34" (ultrawide) and 49" (super ultrawide).

 

Maybe you can consider update to 3070 instead of 3060.

1080p will slowly move to the background, just like 720p and all "standard" resolutions have before that. 1440p is the biggest growing market for gaming monitors atm and it will slowly replace 1080p in popularity. But what resolution makes sense for you depends more on your personal needs than it's market share.

 

I have this rule of thumb for resolution sweet spots:

 

around 24" = 1080p

around 27" = 1440p

around 32" and bigger = 2160p (4K)

 

The best value is currently sitting at 27" 1440p gaming monitors with good units sitting around $300 USD.

I'd advise 1440p for most aside 1080p for those with lower hardware or not caring because only playing online fps too.

The 3060Ti should handle 1440p at medium settings, might struggle a bit if you want to max it out in recent AAA games. But you should be able to get perfectly adequate FPS most of the time. 1080p won't disappear overnight, but now that hardware has gotten better, a growing number of gamers want the finer detail of 1440p more than want a few extra FPS. Especially if you're playing single player cinematic titles.

Your friends sound like luddite idiots.

 

4k (2160p) isn't even enough--especially when you look at PPI for 40"+ displays.  I'd sooner just go back to 1080p gaming on a 4k screen--just so I can avoid the "good for literally nothing else besides FPS gaming" resolution of 1440p.  YMMV.

 

3060ti is on par with a 1080ti--and I'm perfectly happy at 4k with my 1080ti.  Again, YMMV.

it depends on ur budget for the monitor and cpu, at about 500usd i'd get a 24G2+3060ti for 1080p 144hz

you can get away with a 27GP83A-B+ 3060ti, but i'd advise just spending extra on a 3080 or 6900xt with current prices. The extra pixels and density at 1440p are nice to have

The image quality on 1080p monitors typically looks worse than a 1440p, but alot of gamers don't care about that.

Depends on the game and how well you are at it. I prefer 1080, for almost all of my games. Only 1 did I prefer 1440. Muscle memory of 1080 will always win over going to a different res and the time it takes to adapt. With my current hardware, fps is identical so isn't a hindrance there. Only got another 1440 monitor simply for better youtube video quality given compression when uploading.
