Dear all,

 

A while back I asked if my Samsung Galaxy Book Flex (Intel Core i7-1065G7, Ice Lake) with an RTX 3070/ Razer Core X would be suitable for 1440p gaming. As of this moment, I have been running the native laptop's display of 1080p at 60Hz while gaming and the results have been satisfactory. However, I'd like to invest in a new monitor. I've read adding an external monitor would free up thunderbolt 3 bandwidth.

 

My question is, would it be wise to go with an HDR monitor or QHD monitor? Would there be much of a difference in FPS between the two using an RTX 3070 and my current CPU? If there isn't much of a difference, would it be best to go with a QHD monitor?

 

Thanks for the help

@falx927, An ultrawide 21:9 QHD (3440 x 1440) monitor with refresh rates of 120Hz to 144Hz is a sweet spot.

Hey Falax!  What are your benchmarks on the 3070 on icelake?  I have the same CPU and am curious how much better it would perform over my 2060 Super

@mbliss11, Because I only have my laptop's internal monitor at the moment,  I get capped when running any benchmarks at 60fps when in full screen mode (because my monitors refresh rate is 60Hz). Here I have a rough benchmark with Heaven and Valley not in full screen mode.

A 3070 can certainly easily push a high refresh rate 4k screen. Then it depends on the size of your screen and on how much time you want to keep your GPU.

Big screen = big resolution otherwise you will see the pixels. And the higher the resolution of your screen, the quicker your GPU will struggle to manage triple A titles.

Personally I have chosen a 1440p screen as my desk is small and can only fit a 27" screen. Paired with a 2070 super I think I have a good combo for a few years.

@falx927, Thanks for sharing!  I was able to score a 3060ti when they launched and there was a nice performance bump over the 2060 Super.  I was able to return the 2060 which cost more than the 3060ti!  Timing and luck worked out in my favor on that one! 

 

Definitely recommend ultrawide I have a 2560x1080 monitor and am hoping to upgrade to 3440x1440 in the future!

  1. @thatg33k, @mbliss11, @itsage thank you all for your input. It looks like a 1440p monitor is what I'll be going for. Glad to see everyone is happy with their setup. Take care.
