Monitors and aspec ratios for sim

Post by JohnW » Thu Oct 29, 2020 9:01 pm

I am thinking of going a bit bigger on the monitor front. My monitor , an AOC 2460G4, 144hz , is small enough that I can't get a good FoV in rF2. I'm looking to move up to a 32 or 34" screen. The issue is that when you go that far, the aspect ratio becomes " ultrawide " and 21:9 ratio. Will rF2 run in 3440 X 1440 ?

My card specs say : 7680x4320@60Hz

So, I guess I can.

The market is full of VA panels, and I would prefer an IPS. Just has better colors. A bit slower response at about 4-5ms.

What refresh rate do you guys use ? I bought a 144hz monitor a few years ago, because that's the ticket in "gaming" circles, but I never saw an improvement and never saw screen tearing anyway.
