I can't wait to test it out. My gaming PC rig is not yet complete (waiting for PSU, MoBo, DDR1 and 7800GTX )
I only used the scaling from the monitor options (hardware scaling, i guess it would be called).peacetilence said:In your 1920x1080 screenshot did you use the nvidia resolution/aspect drivers option because if I set it to 1920x1080 in DVI the monitor confuses it for 1920x1200 so it stretches out on the entire screen. I haven't tried it over DVI but if it works without using the nvidia scaling option that gives us some hope of 1080p on this monitor without having to use a PC source!
Most Xbox 360 games will be natively 720p, but the console has an internal scaler in it that can upconvert to 1080i. Though the PS3 is being hyped as a 1080p device, most games will run in 720p, and some might be 480p only, as Sony will allow that resolution. Microsoft is not allowing games to be developed with anything less than 720p as their native resolution. You can use the scaler to output at 480p, however. I expect the PS3 to have a capable scaler unit as well.Cannibal Corpse said:How do you utilize that? Does the game need to support it? I am pretty sure XBOX 360 does NOT support 1080i, but PS3 will!
Error Macro said:Don't worry guys... The 360 has a built in scaler that supports many different resolutions. The scaler is supposedly a higher end one, so it should scale miles better than any LCD unit. Although I don't know for sure if it does 1920x1200, I know it does 1080i (1920x1080), and as evidenced in gprime's post, it should look fine.
Eh, I was refering to gprime's post. Not the other guy who posted screens from a 360 dev kit on the Dell. In gprime's shots, a 1080i signal fed to the 2405 produced a proper aspect ratio, with black bars on the top and bottom. Perhaps the 360 has the ability to scale the dashboard to 1920x1200? Who knows? There isn't any gameplay footage being shown there, so don't be too concerned just yet.peacetilence said:If it's doing 1920x1080 in that screenshot then it's not fine because the monitor is 1920x1200. Notice in the picture that the image is filling the entire screen? The aspect ration is f'ed because the monitor can't properly detect 1080p but confuses it for 1920x1200 How can you people play games and watch movies and say it looks normal when everyone looks like they were squished out the ass of an elephant?
XBOX 360 produces even 720p (1280x720 resolution progressive scan) and 1080i (1920x1080 resolution interlaced). Such an increase in resolution is VERY good. But to achive such, the screen needs HD components, and the 2405fpw has SD components with a limit of 480p.Cannibal Corpse said:I don't understand, so XBOX 360 produces greater than 480p for normal HD TVs, but 2405 can not display larger than 480p?
