Thread: Ultrawide single or triples?

  1. #1

    Ultrawide single or triples?

    I'd like to hear from you.

    I'm considering either 3x Asus VG248QE or 1x Benq XR3501. Three of the latter would be awesome but too expensive and I'd need a SLI gfx system.

    Ideally I'd like to keep my system single Nvidia card. Now I have a GTX 780 which serves me very well.

    Go!

    Whatever you have the "horsepower" to run at your desired frame rates.

    I have the same card and I guess you are trying to go 144FPS, but I am pretty sure its not going to work with a single 780, rendering multiview. Considering you need more than 144fps to get a stable 144Hz/FPS I think a mid/low game settings should work on a single screen, maybe even high settings but with just few cars running and shadow blur off/reflection off...

    Actually I'm quite happy with anything around and above 100 Hz. My player.json caps framerate at 120.

    For that reason I would exclude LG models that seem to support up to 75 Hz.

    Ultrawide single with trackIR just enough to see the right side mirror in the cars you usually can't see it. Should be enough view compared to triples

    I'm not sure this is a good idea as you should buy a 144Hz panel if your system is able to run up to 144FPS (or the half but then make no sense). If you have fluctuating frame rate under that number, and/or your FPS are dropping under 100, you may experience very bad tearing and laggy responsiveness.

    My suggestion is, if your system is not capable to run more than 144FPS, in a solid way, I'd focus my attention on a GSync panel which is basically adapting monitor frequency to FPS.

    Yeah but I'd personally prefer a 60Hz triple screen than a single and expensive 144Hz Ultrawide, especially if not running GSync.

    Also the GTX 780 it's a pretty damn good card, but still too weak to run 144FPS with good graphic settings. It's already on the edge to keep 60FPS with everything maxed out.

    If things happen as I expect I want to buy a new PC. I was considering triples but I'm more inclined toward ultrawide monitor after some research, less headache with config, less space, video card running more fps (even if not reaching 144, I'm totally fine with anything above 60) and higher detail options than with triples(?)
    But I need to see if I can adapt to trackIR first... the only time I used it I felt a bit dizzy so if I can buy the new PC I'll get my "32 TV and try on it first, if I can't adapt then I'll go with triples

    I guess because, with trackIR, your eyes are targeting same point, while you are moving/exaggerating your head rotation to make IR working.

    For example; you want to look at your left mirror

    Triple Screen; your eyes are moving to the left screen, as you know left mirror is there. This is a pretty much natural eye movement. Same as you do with your real car.

    tIR; your eyes are still targeting the center/single screen and instead using eyes to target the mirror, you need to rotate your head to the left to activate the tracking. So, your eyes are NOT moving, your head is. This is really not a natural action and yes, when you keep your eyes targeting a point, while your body/head is moving, you may feel some dizziness, but I think it's just a matter of being used to it, especially because first time using iR, people tends to exaggerate the head rotation.

    I got a Acer Predator X34 about a month ago and love it. I've got a GTX770 with almost everything on max and it runs great. It's a GSync panel and was very expensive. My FPS are way down on what I used to get with a 32" TV 1920x1080 @ 60Hz, about 80 - 100FPS, now I have a much higher resolution 3440x1440 @ 95Hz I get maybe 40 -70 FPS but I never notice when the frames drop, and everything is much nicer to look at. I have it less than an arms length away from my face so it's very clear.
    There's a great comparison site to check your how your monitor compares with similar models, here's mine ... http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/...edator_x34.htm
