QuestionI just bought an... iBUYPOWER - Trace MR Gaming Desktop - Intel i7-10700F - 16GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB - 480GB SSD + 1TB HDD This monitor is compatible with this system correct?
- Answer Yes, that monitor will work fine with your new computer. Please note that 3440 x 1440 (native resolution for this monitor) is a LOT of pixels to push, so I'd guess you'll probably see frame rates in the 50-60fps range, not the 144 that the monitor is capable of. As long as you go in with that expectation, though, it's a great screen. :)
QuestionIs this monitor compatible and recommended to take advantage of a ps5? Does it accept the high-speed HDMI cable that comes with the console? Thanks!
- Answer The PS5 currenty does not support resolutions other than HD and 4K. While this monitor will work, it will be in pillboxed 16:9 mode and have black bars at the left and right. Variable refresh rate is also not enabled yet on the PS5, so that feature of the monitor won't be used either. Sony has officially stated they are considering enabling other resolutions in the future. Whether that includes 21:9 resolutions is unclear, but for now this monitor isn't recommended for console gaming unless it's concurrently being used as a PC display.
- Answer No, it only has 2 DP in and 2 hdmi in
QuestionI was thinking of buying this and using it for my PS5 would this be a good choice? Would a 1440p screen be a better resolution to use instead for a PS5?
- Answer Hi, I'm not sure if this monitor would be good for the PS5 because the PS5 doesn't natively support 1440p, only 1080p (FHD) and 2160p (UHD). While some 1440p/Ultrawide 1440p monitors have a workaround where they tell the PS5 that it accepts 4K, then downscales the image to 1440p, there is no clear answer I could find as to whether or not this monitor supports that feature. At worst, the PS5 will output at 1080p and the monitor will stretch it out, blurring the image, and you still might not get 120hz. At best, you'd get 4K at 60hz downscaled to 1440p, and still have black bars on the sides of the picture.
- Answer For work purposes running 2 separate programs, yes. For gaming or video editing, it can, but it's not good.
- Answer Yes it comes with both HDMI and Display Link cables.
QuestionIs anyone using this with an Xbox Series X? Are you able to run this in 1440@120hz in 16:9 with FreeSync and HDMI running? I recently got a Monoprice Dark Matter 34" Curved Ultrawide and I can only manage 1440@60hz without HDR. Freesync only at 21:9.
- Answer unfortunately, the Xbox and even PlayStation don't really support aspect ratios above 16:9 very well and dont allow refresh rates above 60 on higher aspect ratios.
- Answer No OSD Sidekick sorry!
