Its time to take a look at the gaming screen resolutions you prefer to game at, and then we shall see what your fellow PC gamers like to run on as well. Not everyone can game at 1440p or 4K or even 1080p. But as the years go by and tech moves on, these larger screen ranges open up more and more to fellow gamers across the globe.
However, some people, even if they have the money to game at 4K, may choose not to. Perhaps buying a game rig that is capable of this is one thing, but not having any games that would look very good at 4K stops you paying the premium price. Or maybe you dont want your desktop to become compromised, icons being shrunk, desktop space getting warped, wallpapers not fitting.
Whatever your screen resolution choice and circumstance, lets have a chat and find out how you fit in with what everyone else is doing today. I have put together a regular Up For Debate screen resolution poll. I am not including every resolution, as that would be boring, but choose the one closest to yours and then state below if it is different.
The resolutions I am listing are
- 1280 x 720 = 720p
- 1366 x 768 = HDTV 720p/1080i
- 1600 x 900 = 900p
- 1920 x 1080 = 1080p
- 2560 x 1440 = 1440p
- 3440 x 1440 = UltraWide
- 3840 x 2160 = 2160p
- 4096 x 2304 = 4K
And for reference 8192 x 4608 is 8K. But I dont suppose many of us will be playing games on an 8K screen resolution at this moment in time.
Another point of reference with regards to gaming screen resolutions is the HTC Vive Virtual reality screen resolution is 1080 x 1200 per screen. So 2160 x 1400 and it needs to run at a high FPS (around 90FPS) to work properly.
Also in the discussion area below, share your reasons for gaming at your chosen screen resolution. Is it financial, is it because you hate how games look when they have more pixels, is it because your country does not have a good price point for powerful graphics cards or is it simply that your Game-Cave isnt big enough to accommodate any larger monitor?
