That was exactly my point. Somehow that was lost in translation.I get what your saying..
However, I play Fallout 4 @1920x1200 on my 7970 ultra settings. It is very playable but can but slowish at times.
I would Like to have better FPS on the same settings without losing the eyecandy.
I also understand you can have a "Great" gameplay without all the FPS..
Correct me thou, Is it not true? Having a Top Tier card is about Getting the Eyecandy AND the FPS?
Pretty much my own motivation.I was waiting for a good used 980ti, but after this, I will probably get a 1070.
Please notice that I was referring to PC displays mostly concerning 720p; where I was referring to TVs was the price angle for 720p. (While I have seen 720p TV displays, I've never owned one - let alone recommended one.)Oh god, finally someone got my point.
No, he probably was wiser in being a man that won't become a wife's tool and thought things through before marrying.
4k TV is one thing, but even on my 50" samsung, when i connect it to PC - everything is so damn small. I can't imagine using a 4K monitor until scaling is fixed. BTW, read the sig before making assumptions. Many of us here show there what hw they use. And ultimately 1440p 114 Hz > 4k 60 Hz any time of the day.
XB280HK is a TN panel so no thanks.Please notice that I was referring to PC displays mostly concerning 720p; where I was referring to TVs was the price angle for 720p. (While I have seen 720p TV displays, I've never owned one - let alone recommended one.)
Further, in another thread, I've pointed to a 4K G-Sync PC display that is available right now at a price that is not a wallet-breaker - the ACER XB280HK. (Yes, it has a $799 MSRP; however, at the top three resellers, it's not going for that - instead, it's selling for between $100USD and $200 below the MSRP. From cheapest to priciest, the three are Amazon, Walmart, and Newegg. 720p was an attempt at a value play; 1440p is the same thing. However, falling prices for 1080p (and now 4K) have made that value play pretty much moot - and that is just on the display end. 4K on PCs had the additional obstacle of GPU pricing to overcome - I get that. GTX1070 solved THAT issue rather neatly. The only reason I brought up TVs is because the only display that a lot of folks - even here at [H] - that supports 4K at all is a TV (due to price reasons - I get that, too; price has been, in fact, THE issue in the 4K PC display market; in fact, I had zero plans on moving until they fixed it). However, GTX1070 is not a halo GPU, and the ACER XB280HK is not a halo display; the ACER is, in fact, available right now; the GTX1070 will be available to purchase in six days. Basically, unless personal circumstances change for the worse rather dramatically, I'll be out of excuses before the end of the year for NOT moving to 4K - and this is from 1080p no less. If I had the money, I'd be out of excuses by the end of June - remember, the display is available right now; the lagging factor is the GPU.
Some folks don't like TN as a panel design - that's fine. However, my own CURRENT display is TN, and I have no objection to it on those grounds; it's also Acer - which is why the XB280HK is on the radar in the first place. In short, the two issues that a lot would have about that particular display do NOT apply to me; if anything, the reality of it supporting G-SYNC would actually mitigate them if I had them.XB280HK is a TN panel so no thanks.
Except of course there are no currently available $379 parts.. and most all 449 parts are Out of Stock/Preorder.That Price Thing
If we look at the actual pricing though of $379-$449 the GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition..
Yeah they should write an article talking about how Nvidia screwed this launch up.. oh wait, they did. Well they didn't call out AMD for the Nano paper lau... oh wait, that happened as well. Well what about calling out Nvidia on the Founder's Edition pricing... oh yeah that happened as well.meh fluff piece ..

I miss the days of old when [H] actually called out companies for soft/paper launches and didn't kow-tow to the corporate overlords..
