I have long been putting together my new setup, and knew exactly which monitor I wanted, more specifically that Samsung super ultra wide monstrosity, but low and behold, just as I was about to buy, there were rumors of a new model, the same in size, but instead om 1080p, 1440p. (so far I’ve been unable to determine anything in regards to hdr and freesync)
Of course I couldn’t go with the old when the new was just around the corner, so I’ve been waiting and waiting, and quite frankly I’m getting pretty tired of waiting, not least due to the crappy tn panel I’m currently using, which has led me to reconsider
So I was thinking, how much of a difference does it actually do?
My current monitor is 24" FHD, and I need to get rather close to really notice any rugged edges and such. Granted I’ll be adding 3" to those 24", but that’s not all that much… Not really.
Well, I can’t decide, so of course I’ve been looking at recommendations, among which are apples retina standard, stating that you should keep a distance of at least 42" to a FHD 27" monitor, to get the retina experience, which I’m sure is exaggerated anyway. I’m sure some people benefit from going to the extremes, but most don’t I’d wager.
In any case, I haven’t really had a desktop for years, and thus have little experience.
So what do you think?
Would you notice a significant difference between 1080 and 1440 27" at say 30" or thereabout?
Would you prioritize a higher frame rate (or something like that) and be willing to settle for a little less than perfect?
What are your recommendations?
I’m looking for an all round monitor really, though I don’t really care much about them super high refresh rates, though I do care about stable refresh rates.
As for my Graphic card, an asus something or rather vega 64 8bg, should be sufficient for my purposes, I think.
