yaggaz Primarily from the point of view of simply gaming. I have never seen one in action and am wondering why they are becoming so popular. I don't care about the technical specs, but simply the experience. Is it more immersive? Does it somehow look more "real" than a flat screen? Does the curvature warp and distort visuals and texts in any way? Thanks.
Hoggle it's more natural to have the monitor around you more then just flat in front of you.
mistermisterThis is probably unhelpful but having used a 34" 21:9 monitor for the past 5 years for gaming and work, 16:9 is dead to me.
yaggaz No I kind of get it. After using 60hz monitors for 15 years and then switching to a 144hz monitor, 60hz is now dead to me. I don't care if the 3090 can do 8k, if it can't do 140fps I'll use a lower rez
mistermister Funny you mention that. Even with my old 2080FE I struggled to get a solid 60FPS in a lot of games with max settings at 3440x1440 so I never felt the need to upgrade from my 60hz monitor. Now that I have a 3090 Im suddenly shopping for monitors with 120+hz refresh rates.
Caffeinated_SarcasmMy coworker has a pair of curved monitors. He uses them for CAD work. I can definitely see the appeal with them side by side. It kind of surrounds you.
themlharrisI feel like I would get a headache
AfterburnerthemlharrisI feel like I would get a headacheI wondered that originally as well. Then you would if you drive a vehicle as well. Nearly every windshield now a days is curved...
yaggaz What if we put about 12 multi curved monitors around us and formed a complete circle and then set the game FOV to 360. Okay that's probably going into the realm of the absurd lol
