Gaming 900p Vs 1080p Screen


Gaming 900p Vs 1080p Screen

You should keep in mind that with 900p gaming on 1080p monitors, you might have to sacrifice screen clarity a little. Meanwhile, previous-gen consoles work equally well on a 900p display.

On the other hand, despite being the halfway point between 1080p and 720p, 900p never really became the industry standard for content producers or monitor and TV manufacturers. Most YouTube videos, shows, and movies are made to be watched in 4K, 1080p, or 720p, but not in 900p.

This is important to understand since it can put into perspective how much better 1080p is. So with 1080 rows of pixels, and there being 1.777 times more columns as rows, this means that there are 1920 columns of pixels on the screen. And once you multiply the number of rows and columns together, you get a total of 2,073,600 pixels.

With all of that out of the way, the question remains: is 1080p better than 900p The differences between the two and how the two compare can be better understood by taking a look at their different uses.

900p is the best option if you want to live-stream your gaming session, perform day-to-day computer games, or play games on older consoles. This display resolution requires less bandwidth and processing power and such displays are often cheaper than 1080p screens, albeit a little harder to find.

In spite of being halfway between 720p and 1080p, 900p never caught on as an industry standard for producers of TVs, monitors, or content. Most movies, shows, and even YouTube videos are made to be played in 720p, 1080, or even 4k, not 900p.

Why does that matter Well, if 1080p means 1,080 rows of pixels, and if there are about 1.777 times as many columns as rows, that means your screen has 1,920 columns of pixels. Multiply the number of columns and rows together and you get 2,073,600 pixels in total.

That same math applies for any resolution in the 16:9 aspect ratio. If 1080p means 1,080 rows and 1,920 columns for a total of 2,073,600 pixels, then 900p means 900 rows and 1,600 columns for a total of 1,440,000 pixels.

Hello, I currently own a MSI GTX 960 and a old samsung 1600 x 900 monitor. My questions is how much of an fps difference do I gain since I'm not even gaming at 1080p and how bad/blurry will the image be because its not 1080p Is there a big difference in either

The crispness of the image depends on both the pixel count and the screen size. A 46" 1080p tv will be a lot less crisp than a 480p phone viewed from the same distance. It may be possible for you to use the nvidia control panel to force your monitor to run at 1080p (only virtually, you won't magically get more resolution) and you can decide for yourself if the framerate hit is tolerable.

>.< I just bought a cheap monitor for the time being for like 30 bucks. I'll upgrade in a few months to a nice 1080p screen but thanks for the insight. On another note, I was a console peasant so I wont notice a bunch of difference except gaming on 60 fps finally!!!! hahahahah

Hmmm, in that case I should get a cheap 1080p monitor soon in the coming months, perhaps for christmas. The best time would be now while they have cheap $70 dollars ones going around but I need to get the rest of my system.... so not really gonna work. I thought I would be getting at least 10 more fps >.> Sucks and going to 1080p will get me a lot more on screen. I'll be upgrading that first once my system is built then.

Fairly often we hear from developers, publishers, members of the press or even just from our friend a block down the road that it's impossible to distinguish between 1080p, 720p or 900p resolutions at certain conditions, normally the size of the screen and/or the distance from it.

We picked seven PC games, that are the perfect testbed for this kind of experiment, as they allow us to change resolution at will. Then we grabbed a screenshot each in 720p, 900p and 1080p. Every other detail setting was maxed for all the screenshots in order to ensure parity of conditions. F
