Consideration for 1440 Monitor - Fundamental Question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

If I run P3D in 1040 resolution on 1080 24' monitor, does it mean that purchasing 1440 27' monitor will be an overkill for me unless I switch to 2080 P3D in-sim resolution?

 

Thanks

I switched from two 24" monitors to one 43" monitor at 3840x2160 and absolutely love it.  I think going from 24 to 27 would probably not be worth it.  Better to save your money a little longer and go bigger.  I would not go bigger than 43".

I mostly fly IFR, PMDG and other heavy-metal in major hubs with 100% AI, UTX and ASN. Even with my i7-6700k and 980Ti, I think that it would be big pressure for the videocard to accept 1440p monitor resolution and 2040HD in P3D. It will be ok in VFR, but not in IFR.

I have i5-2500k and GTX-970 at full 3840x2160.  Also with full UT2, PMDG 737/777, ASN, and major airports (KLAX/KSFO payware, etc.).

 

There's actually not much difference at all with frame rates between 1080 and 4K.   You should give it a try.  Just buy the monitor somewhere that you can return it.

 

I will warn you that it does take some getting used to sitting 2-3 feet in front of a 43" monitor.  Took me a couple weeks, but now I love it.

Thanks for support and encouragement. Local Microcenter has a few models to try as well as 2-weeks return policy. Perhaps will try next Saturday

Same here. Also using a 970 GTX for 4K with a lot of addons (PMDG777, FTX stuff, ASN, Immersion and so on....) -> decent framerate, no problems ;)

Quick question,

 

Does your monitor has IPS and/or G-Sync? I'm just wondering if P3D does really benefits from these two pricey features?

IPS is a type of panel, well known for amazing color reproduction and good viewing angles.  The benefits over a TN monitor will depend on the individual monitor, but the difference I noted over my old TN Samsung is outstanding.  Im not sure about the benefits of G-sync, don't have a monitor with that feature.  I've heard good things tho, helps with smoothness and screen tearing, mostly at refresh rates over 45 htz, I believe.  Again, not certain if this feature is supported by P3D.  But IPS FTW, definitely.

Thanks for the response...well, ASUS's premium is almost $400 on IPS vs. non-IPS monitor

I don't think it has either.  Here's the one I have. Not a high end monitor but works just fine for me.

 

Not sure what type of panel that TV has, but g-sync is proprietary to nvidia and is currently only found on gaming monitors, if I'm not mistaken.

I also have a IPS 4K screen and i LOVE the colors. But the price is damn high for 4K IPS panels.

 

This is the one I have and i can recommend it, but I have to admit that it might not be worth the pricetag. ;-)

Where are you getting this 2040 figure from?

Do you mean 2048 texture resolution?

 

If you want to see how your system will handle a 1440p monitor just run x2 DSR on your current 1080p.

Yes, by 2040 I meant the texture resolution in P3D. I don't use DSR, but I run 4xSGSAA with 1080p and I have stable 30FPS practically everywhere even in FSDT KJFK and KLAX with 100% AI
