4K Monitor Issues?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I purchased a 4K monitor, not just for FSX, but for multimedia. Native resolution is obviously much higher than 1080P. I am having issues with FSX now running in 1080. It seems like it is jagged and a bit blurry. It seemed to work fine on my 21" Alienware monitor. This monitor is a 28" from Dell. Do you guys have any suggestions? Running FSX at 4K res is possible but with only one GTX980 it is not practical for FPS.

Some monitors do not look good at anything other than their native resolution.

Forgetting about frame rates for the moment what does 4K look like on the Dell?

Yeah it appears that the native resolution was causing the issue when trying to run FSX at 1080. Running it at 4K was crazy. There is no jagged lines on the airplanes and they looked so beautiful. Great colors also. With the GTX 980 I was able to lock 30 frames when looking at the outside of the plane from the top but when you pan up to see the horizon or look out of the cockpit the FPS dropped to a low of 7. A lot of this seemed to be related to cloud draw and I am sure terrain. I am using Orbx FTX Global+Vector+FS Global 2010.
