    That's why I'm saying that 1:1 is a good aspect ratio for general computer use. Of course if you're going to optimize for one specific type of content there's going to be a best option.

    There is no relationship between a human's field of vision and the ideal aspect ratio for a computer screen. That's a fallacy. We're literally looking at a website right now that is basically newspaper/portrait aspect ratio.

    Funny examples given that 16:9 isn't really better than 4:3. Every aspect ratio is a tradeoff. You're losing horizontal visibility or vertical visibility. Really, the best aspect ratio is probably 1:1 just because it's the best middle ground and...

    That's funny given that I'm going to be buying a CX when it comes out (but not for HDR). Can't wait to read the psychoanalysis of that statement.

    Yup keep pretending it's not snake oil when no one's buying it and not even a new Half-Life game can really move units. I'm sure the facts will change if you just keep saying stuff. The bottom line is that it's a gimmick, and motion controls...

    So you admit that for 90% of humans it's worthless and therefore less impactful than resolution and refresh rate. Glad we're all in agreement! Here's the thing. People admit that there's basically hardly any good HDR content. By definition, any...

    On top of that HDR simply isn't as big of a visual impact as going from 60fps to 90fps or doubling resolution. And on top of that you can legitimately make the argument that some HDR effects don't even look visually appealing whereas more...

    Pretty horrific reading comprehension on your part. I wrote that you always want to use a flight stick in a flight sim REGARDLESS of whether you're using a VR helmet or not. I was making the point that VR doesn't significantly change the way...

    Flight sims in VR still use traditional controls. If you're not using some kind of flight stick with a flight sim you're doing it wrong. Head tracking/free look in the cockpit is nice but that's not what I'd call "control" as much as more...

    The parts of that game that aren't just standard FPS fare are walking simulator style crap. That game is all presentation and style over substance combined with Valve hype and fanboys pretending there's far more there than is actually there.

    Why would anyone be excited about another CPU with basically the same performance that runs hotter than the sun? It's about as boring as it gets.

    It isn't, and don't get suckered by all the (mostly paid for) hype around the HL Alyx game. At the end of the day it's just another walking simulator. It's pretty much snake oil. No one's made a VR game that wouldn't play better than traditional...

    That 4k VRR input latency...yikes. That's pretty much a deal breaker for me.

    Can you do some testing for us? If you create a custom resolution of 2880x2160, can you run that at 4:4:4 @ 120hz? How about a custom resolution of 2160x1620? Can you run that at 4:4:4 @ 120hz?

    I'm pretty close minded when it comes to issues like this. I don't believe that it's really a viable, technically sound product if you can't cool it adequately with air cooling. It's basically akin to admitting that they can't really hit the...

    HDR+TN screen... It's like looking at someone with Scarlet Johansen's body and Steve Buscemi's face...

    I'm going to laugh if the PS5 and Xbox don't support HDMI 2.1. They're stupid enough to miss it.

    Wait for the LG 48" OLED to see how it is. You could always run it at an ultra wide resolution if you want it to be smaller.
