As much as I envy 2K 4K & well … lol … 8K … I could not be more happier sticking with 1080p for obvious (and many forgotten) reasons. When I look your screenshots there (STUNNING That lighting is OMG!) it shows in all its glory on my 1080 screen. In the quest to have the highest number of everything, people soon forget just how good the previous resolutions looks on a native screen.
I run a PC charity venture where I am often reminded of that fact; always ensuring I match up the screens. Just like many of those former resolutions many of us are far too quick to dismiss the previous generations. Often doing so when downscaling on our newer tech. Such a comparison does not show the former glory which you have captured so excelenty with the embed pic. Dude … it looks frigging smick on my native screen!!!
Sorry to go on, I need the break from MSFS and researching of late. I could say it really is about working with what you got (and it is) but at the same time I’m in line to thinking that with the introduction of MSFS, that the next 6 to 12 months is a good time for many to take the next step. I don’t mean 2 or 4K (although if you can - and that meets your need ) I just mean acquiring that little extra to get that boost that meets one’s preference. Whatever that be.
I miss my 2560X1080 IPS Gsync already. It’s still boxed up ready to post to some lucky eBay bidder. I spent a thousand $Au on the awesome monitor when I could’ve gone 2K. I just knew I that I would soon be going super ultra wide PLUS multi monitor. This pic summing up why 1080p is for me:
That’s not my setup, but it does illustrate well my context with personal goals re 1080p Vs 2-4 and now 8k. As for PPI - I am so glad I did not listen to so many negative reviews on ultrawide 1080p. Everyone was saying ‘Don’t do it!’ - ‘Sweet spot this and sweet spot that …’ The best thing I did was jump on in with the 34inch 21:9 1080p Bandwagon. After it arrived and 12 months there after I was still
Alas going forward for me as is the plan depicted above all about sticking with 1080p. Keeping it native is the way to go and the only way in which it can only ever be appreciatively compared. Now don’t get me wrong - I can see the obvious gloss with full respect to 2 and 4K. I’m just trying to make a case for poor old 1080p. It really does cop an unfair dismissal this day and age. I really don’t see it disappearing any time soon as on ultra with blistering frame rates and the scope for driving super emerive screens is why I am looking to keep a system that is more then 2-4K worth yet still drive a super 1080 work and gaming station that simply can’t be replicated any time soon by 2-4K
My poor ROG Strix RTX2080 for the first time is now struggling running MSFS (for my prefered settings) on my new 32:9 1080 screen. It was not that long ago I bought the ■■■■ thing spending another thousand $Au on that. But that’s OK … it’s nice to see the software pushing the tech. I just don’t think the higher the number is alway better. Despite we all being programmed to think that way.
Are you going to sick with the alrawide? You moving up the gloss factor with 2 or 4K. What tickles your fancy Alex?
I got to say one last time … that screenshot on my 1080 Native looks a million bucks!!!
