I recently pulled down some new settings in NVidia “Experience” it’s hokey but it’s easy and gives me an idea of what games should run at. It hasn’t not been MAX yet, but there will come a day, I’m sure. I am still running at 1920 x 1080 at least, though @ 120hz. I let go of my 2560 x 1600 for a smoother frame rate, that was limited to 60hz.
So I came upon these settings today and had to try it out:
Check out the comparison shots after the jump…
And here you have it — pretty sure I kept them straight, I can always go back and verify the times. I took all the 3840 rendered screenshots and then all the 1920 rendered screenshots. In both cases they’re displayed at 1920 x 1080, it’s just rendered high and resampled for the 3840 — this is where video RAM comes in handy. Other games I’ve tried this with have crashed since I only have 3G / card.
It is most visible in the bark, repeating textures (ground, rocks), and with the bendy stuff where antialiasing still can’t quite smooth it out. The grass and organic matter. I also noticed fire is especially detailed.
