What's a dfhd?
But i would asdume Depends what frame rate you're after
Double Full HD.. i like to get min 60 frames.. ideally around 80 to 100 but no lower than 60
I think so. I quickly Googled the GTX 1070 and it says it supports 7680x4320@60Hz, so it should be able to handle 5120x1440@120Hz. As long as you have the right DisplayPort version... apparently 1.4 can handle 4K 120Hz so it could do 5120x1440.
I may be thinking of DQHD though. If you're thinking 3840x1080 then it could handle that easily.
In terms of gaming, it depends on what you're playing... I'm running at 3440x1440 on an RX 480 which is not ideal. The 1070 is a fair bit better, and 3840x1080 is a lower resolution than 3440x1440.
Well I had a 1080ti on a Samsung 4k screen and well it felt that it struggled a bit (thinking of that now the 4k screen was only 60hz...) so maybe that's why I felt it struggled hahaha..Yea its 3840x1080... Just trying to think if a 49" 3840x1080 is better than a 35" 3440x1440. Using it for work 80% of the time so a lot of web applications/SQL etc. I'm scared the 1440 will end up being a bit small in font size and if I then have to upscale it to 125% I'll lose space and not fit all my tabs as good as on a 49"...
Current screen is 1080 27" so its got 81ppi and it was fine for me (in gaming quality I mean.) The 49" works out to 81 as well. The 35" is like 106
Ahhh I see. Yeah 4k is a lot of pixels to push... 3840x1080 is around 4.2 million pixels; half that of 4k (8.4~). But yeah if you wanted to hit really high frame rates it may be challenging.
I don't find the font size too small for my usage but I do sit really close to the screen due to my eyesight (~12 inches).
As you say, could be a good move to get the one with the same PPI as your current monitor. Maybe check it (or something similar) out in store if you have that option.
