Solved Gaming on 1920x1080 feels smoother than 1680x1050. Why? Tags: Monitors Graphics Last response: December 21, 2013 11:35 PM in Graphics & Displays Share kebbz December 21, 2013 9:43:27 PM My rig: FX-6300 4GHZ HD 7850 2GB (OC'd to match 7870 performance.) 2X4GB DDR3 1600. I have a 1680x1050 monitor. I tried using my Sony Bravia TV, and hooked it up to my PC and played BF4 in 1080p. I used fraps to display the framerates and I actually am having the same framerates as with the 1680x1050 monitor. BUT, it feels alot smoother. Why?

In BF4 the setting under resolution is 1920x1080 59HZ. I assume that's 60. My 1050 monitor is also 60hz Reply to kebbz m 0 l Related resources Why does 30fps feel alot smoother in console games? - Forum Why choose a 1680x1050 over a 1920x1080? - Forum Why do xbox360 30 fps feel better than PC 30fps? - Forum Suddenly can't run games at any resolution other than 1920x1080. - Forum Why does my PC feel more laggy than PS3? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
