I'm currently considering whether to buy the BenQ XL2411T or the ASUS VG248QE.
One of the most appealing aspects of the BenQ XL2411T is the smart scaling feature. All I care about is FPS, so I want 100+ FPS in BF4 to get the most out of the Hz rate.
I assumed Smart Scaling would give better FPS given that the resolution is lower.
I see little talk in forums about the smart scale feature. However, this thread mentions input lag.
1. Is the purpose of Smart Scaling to improve FPS performance in games?
2. I've read the manual and seen YouTube reviews and it seems Smart Scaling is set on the monitor side only. This being the case, if the resolution in Windows is still 1920 x 1080, I fail to see how there could be any performance increase. Correct?
3. What happens in games if, say, 19"W (16:10) is set on the monitor, then 1680 x 1050 is set on the GPU – do games look sharp? Could someone test this in BF3 or a similar game?
