Benq has recently suggested that PS5 1440p resolution support might be in after all, despite Sony not saying anything about it.
God I really hope this is true. Even though I game primarily on a 4K monitor, I would happily downgrade to 1440p at my desk since 4K really isn’t worth it on a 27” screen.
Am I missing something I thought already said Demon Souls runs [email protected] and [email protected] on Ps5. I'm confused by the question of 1440p support. Am I missing something?
Yeah, basically what we’re asking for is native output of 1440p. The PS4 Pro never got this, fingers crossed Sony give it to us for the PS5!
So there's a difference between the resolution a game runs at and the resolution a console can natively output. Lots of games ran at 1440p on the PS4 Pro, but it could only output 4K or 1080p/lower. Connected to a 1440p monitor, a game might run at 4K, but then get downsampled to a 1080p output on a 1440p monitor. This looks worse than 1080p on a 1080p display too, since it's relying on the monitor to imperfectly scale the image. So basically, 1440p support on PS5 would mean about double the image fidelity on 1440p monitors. This is especially important since 4K high refresh monitors are stupid expensive but there are plenty of well priced 1440p high refresh monitors.
"Am I missing something I thought already said Demon Souls runs [email protected] and [email protected] on Ps5." Had my comment marked as "Inappropriate" for stating the exact same thing: https://n4g.com/news/237536... Some people will just call out DF for lazy/sh!t analysis for things they don´t to hear, rather than question Sony/Bluepoint on the matter. Smh
@Si-fi and guyfamily Thanks for clarifying.
sitting that close wouldn't be that bad for 4K on a 27" screen to be honest. It's the people that get TV's less than 55" and sit like 10 feet away from it. That is useless for the eyes.
I get paid over $90 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing, HERE► https://is.gd/jobs46
There's a very real and tangible difference between playing games at native 4K compared to 1440p on a 4K monitor, to me at least (I too have a 27" 4K). But I also agree that 1440 is the far more sane option for gaming. And 1440p on a 1440p monitor looks great, not to mention how much cheaper it is to hit that mark with high refresh rates and all that. 1440p output support on the PS5 seems like a total no brainer.
The question remains, if developers will support it. Freesync for 60+ at 1440p would be wonderful. Even if it never hits 120 but always exceed 60 - with a fidelity which can be better than 4k. But it adds another render (and performance) target for developers; now they have 3, 1080p, 4k and an additional 1440p. All those would need to go through performance testing. Maybe it would be as easy as simply take the 4k target @30, render at 1440p and make it unlocked. But what if it just can't hit the 60fps there? So, quite some more additional work to optimize for that target. Unless people can accept a VRR which dips below 60fps at times.
Agree. It's another setup that would have to be accounted for if it were done natively (1440p internal to 1440p output). Though surely it could be a developer opt-in type scenario where if they aren't accounting for that resolution it simply does some hardware downscaling from 4K. Though, just typing that out and reading it to myself, it sounds fairly unlikely most devs are going to waste too much resources on 1440p. But I imagine there are going to be loads of games this generation that still end up at an 2560x1440p internal resolution anyway (since it seems to be the new resolution performance sweet spot) and for those games it's surely going to be cheaper on performance to output direct to that resolution anyway than upscaling then downscaling again to hit that mark, so if they're hitting their performance marks at the 4K output they can feel relatively safe that 1440p is going to perform at least as well in those instances at least.
Absolutely. I mean, there are 1440p already. Can scale both ways, 4K upscale or super sample down to 1440p. Might have been a reason why some games have been shown in 1440p (but also at less then 60fps, UE5 or Daemon Souls @ 60). I don't. I agree with brute force 4k is less appealing to me than high detail 1440p. I run some games on my PC 1440p upscaled to 4k and they look gorgeous.
Yeah I'd take 1440/1800p upscaled to 4k at 60 fps over 4k/30 anyday.
"you may want to consider a good QHD gaming monitor, as 1440p will be supported by the PS5 with a higher likelihood of 120Hz in that resolution." It would be weird not to have it.
I bet it is on a per developer basis game wise for getting higher performance with 1440p. My guess is that the game will run the same and they will just downsample 4K res. Hope that is not the case, but its currently what they do with the PS4 Pro when people use a FHD TV.
This has nothing to do with that. Technically, they can do 1440p now and (HW) scale it to 4k. But this would mean bypassing that scaler. I vote for more 1440p support, tbh. Is a really good resolution for high detail high frame rate especially on the next gen console.
Completely agree. I want it supported, I just hope the extra performance comes along with it. Without the performance gain, its a moot point.
200% better in black. White it looks awful and that cheap gloss plastic does not help. In this image that plastic is matte not gloss and it greatly improves the look of the machine. Whoever decided to change this to gloss needs to be fired.
You know you can change the faceplates, right? And vinyl wrap the middle if you really want. I don't think anyone needs firing because you prefer matte to gloss. I had a matte black BMW a few years ago, I didn't bay for the blood of the guy that decided it wouldn't be a standard option from the dealership lol
HEY. There is a see-through platic film over the middle black part when you get the ps5. You can peel this off
Came in here just to say the same thing. Can you buy a black one now? Because this is 1000x better than the ugly "sandwich on white bread" look that I have seen before.
But black is great but so last gen, whites awesome but me personally am going grey like the original ps1.. just gotta wait for someone to do it, to be really honest I'd like the transparent blue like on the 500 million console and some gold wrap for the centre
I was disappointed the 4 Pro wouldn't do 1440p, especially since some games like Uncharted 4 on Pro were upscaled from 1440p to 4k. Still, unless a game can do more than 60fps I'll probably stick to my 4k tv.
Me too, I got a One X as that did 1440p, PS 4 Pro 1080 or 4k only. I hope BenQ are right on this.
same here, I wanted to switch my pro from my tv to my ultrawide 1440p monitor to improve input lag, but going from 4k hdr to 1080 on a screen not really made for that resolution was a huge drop in visuals. I was really sour about them not including that display setting and ended up gaming a lot more on my X because of it.
Ya, well, that up scale to 4k didn't cost much. It is, if we talk VRR (Freesync) on a 1440p 144Hz screen where this could shine. The PS4 Pro would not have made this run at 60fps, no matter if it would have been "just" 1440p.
I choose 2k at 60+ fps over 4k at 30fps any time
that line is now removed
Absolutely preposterous if it doesn't.
Hopefully this is true. I dont have an up to date tv but the one I bought back during black friday 2018 ( Samsung 65nu8500) is capable of 1440 at 120hz
Any PC gamer will tell you to go 1440 over 4k
Native is always better.
Seriously I use mine on my tv but there is a lot of people that will want to use it on a monitor esp for multiplayer . 1440 p should be an option that’s basic compatibility Sony . I didn’t realize ps4 pro didn’t support it ether. Here’s hoping it supports instant gamer response too as Xbox one x did but pro didn’t have that ether .
Wccftech must be hurting for anything if they are posting on rumors already. it certainly can handle 1440 (I mean are you kidding me?), but weather or not Sony chooses to support it, or how long they choose to support it, is another matter I live how this has telephoned from a might to a definite on some scavenger game news sites. When you go rumor, you start loosing cred, not that wccftech is known for jack crack anyway other than their parent co. New Age Adds. In other words, they are poser as F.
