V4 resolution

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experimented with different screen resolutions?  I get no frame drop at all going from 1440p to 4K.  Anyone else have the same results?

Why should you? P3Dv4 is still mostly CPU limited, so if your CPU is not capable of offering more than 30 FPS for example, you can change the resolution in whatever way you want, you will always have around those 30 FPS. Unless you go so high up with your resolution until it starts to be limited by the GPU. If you have a decent GPU, I guess this will not happen until you are beyond 4K.

Anyone that have graphics settings and a graphics card that can handle those settings at 4K without hitting 100% GPU load will have the same results.

Without knowing your graphics settings and your graphics card, there is not enough information to compare your results with the results of others.

Just plain wrong.

Then explain it "plain right". I am pretty sure that the FPS are not heavily influenced as long as you operate in a CPU limit. But well, prove otherwise please...

Well I do have a huge loss in fps when using DSR 2x combined with 8MSAA. But I guess it's because of dynamic lighting.
In V3 it was perfectly fine. Since my display only has a HD resolution the DSR option was/is a good compromise to have a higher resolution.

v4 will tax single GTX1080Ti/TitanXp on 4k very easily - far away from maxed out graphics settings.
